Remote IO-Next Generation/RIO-NG

Remote IO-Next Generation/RIO-NG
RIO-NG is Aitech’s latest offering in extensible Remote Input Output digital platforms. The RIO-NG platform is designed around a Common Digital Processing Platform (CDPP) which provides “standard” functionality to collect, process, format, packetize and transport data.

The CDPP interfaces to all systems through the use of a personality module. Personality modules can be made available in a variety of functions including but not limited to:

Process control:
Thermocouple with Cold Junction Compensation, RTD, Strain Gauge, Accelerometer, Acoustic, and pressure transducers

Digital IO:
Parallel Machine-Machine interfaces like TTL, RS422 discrete IO and Human Machine interfaces like push buttons and touch sensing panels

High Current Interfaces:Motor and Mechanism Drive:
Pyrotechnic high voltage/high current interface, Industrial and Aerospace voltage and current-mode valve control interfaces with power saving option

Motor and Mechanism Drive:
Stepper motor controller, Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine (PMSM) motor drive with vector and trapezoidal sensor and sensor-less commutation
