Highly flexible remote I/O controllers

29 September 2021 Computer/Embedded Technology

Remote I/O devices are well-established in the industrial world. By supporting popular communications protocols such as Modbus, they give other equipment and control systems such as scada access to remote inputs and outputs.

Tibbo’s Remote IO (RIO) controllers offer an important advantage over the competition. Built on the Tibbo Project System (TPS) platform, these devices are highly flexible because all of their I/O and sensing capabilities come from the installed Tibbit modules.

While other vendors offer long lists of remote I/O devices in various fixed configurations, Tibbo lets you pick and choose just the features that you require for each particular project. Need a certain I/O function? Install the right Tibbit. Have no use for something? Leave it out.

Since all this flexibility can be intimidating to novice users, Tibbo is rolling out a number of standard starter configurations. These devices are ready to be deployed or can serve as the starting point for your own tailored controller.

RIO controllers run Tibbo’s open-source Remote IO app, which features an advanced, intuitive UI that simplifies controller configuration. The interface displays the actual layout of the device and lists the Modbus registers associated with each I/O line or Tibbit function. To simplify deployment in the field, RIO controllers optionally allow the configuration of basic parameters from a smartphone over a BLE connection.
