Panelview Plus with Remote I/O support

The Automation School – HMI Basics – Article Banner
PanelView Plus 700-1500With the release of the PanelView Plus 6 700-1500, Rockwell chose to no longer support the legacy Remote I/O (RIO) network.

However, for users who still need to replace old RIO PanelViews, Rockwell has made several new catalog numbers for the original Panelview Plus with firmware 5.1 and RIO support available.

These models (listed below) all have the Remote I/O communications module pre-installed. They also all have color displays, are DC powered, and are planned to be available through 2015:
