Courtesy: GE Automation and ControlsGE's RSTi-EP I/O device compatible with industrial Internet-enabled applications, features I/O slices that are 11.5 mm wide and has a response time reading up to 356 discrete I/O points in 20 microseconds. The device has a capacity of up to 1024 I/O per drop. The RSTi-EP I/O allows a connected controller to know and affect the current state of the process or application being controlled by providing a networked interface for control systems to connect to the real world via sensors and actuators. With it, failures in systems can be identified at the control center as opposed to the operator having to go out to the factory floor for problem diagnosis. Its built-in Web server enables the operator to look at diagnostic faults, test I/O points and upgrade firmware over the Web. This simplifies start up, streamlines maintenance processes and increases uptime.

The RSTi-EP I/O device can be used as part of stand-alone or networked unit controls, for control applications that require a higher performance capability and for those that operate in stringent environmental conditions. Examples include process and discrete manufacturing operations - both OEM and end users - such as skid-mounted equipment control, basic machine safety systems, pump and compressor control, conveyance and material handling systems.
