The Roboteq I/O eXtender, 3A DCDC, 12 In, 16 Out w/ AHRS module is an intelligent I/O expansion card, with an optional Attitude and Heading Reference System (AHRS), that seamlessly integrates with Roboteq Motor Controllers.
The RIOX module has Digital Outputs capable of driving resistive loads such as lights, or inductive loads such as relay, solenoids, or motors up to 1A each at 40V. Each output can be used as Input as well.
It is intended for use in robotics navigation, unmanned vehicles, machine control, industrial automation, and any other applications that need interfacing in the real world. The RIOX module can also be used stand-alone, or as an IO extender to PC, PLC, or microcomputer-based systems.
The module features 12 inputs, each of which can be individually configured as digital, 0-5V analog, or as pulse inputs. In the pulse mode, the inputs can capture pulse width, frequency, duty cycle, or quadrature encoder, counts. Each input pin can also be configured as a driver for RC servos.
RIOX provides a standard RS232 and RS485 interface for communication to PCs and various peripherals. A CAN bus interface allows RIOX to be a master or slave in a CAN bus network that can be up to 1000m long and contain up to 127 nodes. CAN bus also allows the simple interfacing to Roboteq motor controllers.
