Maxim - Pocket IO PLC Development Platform

Rorots  alive and well as it continues to gain momentum on a global basis.  More and more companies are embracing the promise of optimized factory throughput with 24/7/365 days of up-time. Manufacturing lines can now be re-configured "on-the-fly" as new products enter the queue, resulting in increased productivity and more adaptive manufacturing processes. We are committed to supporting this transformation by delivering innovative solutions for industrial communications. Our ground breaking products and reference designs enable design engineers to rapidly create and prototype new industrial control systems before they are sourced and built.


  • Compact Design
    Ultra-small, compact footprint (< 10 cubic inches: 3.5" x 3.5" x 0.8")
  • Robust, Safe Technology
    Composed of advanced industrial products all rated to withstand -40°C to +125°C, which leverage our robust, safe, fast de-mag technology
  • High Efficiency
    Ensures a small energy signature to increase efficiency—no cooling fan is needed
  • Packs a Powerful Punch
    Offers a full suite of 30 IO's to control an entire manufacturing node or piece of equipment, including: 4 Analog Inputs, 1 Analog Output, 8 Digital Inputs, 8 Digital Outputs, 2 RS-485 (Profibus-capable field buses), 3 Encoder/Motor Control Ports, and 4 IO Link Masters
  • Longer Battery Life
    The first, compact, portable PLC platform that can operate for a minimum of 2 hours using "AA/AAA" batteries or a minimum of 8 hours from LiFePO4 rechargeable batteries
  • Programmable
    Programmable via Arduino Sketch or using Intel's Edison Eclipse IDE tool chain with Windows, Linux, or Mac OS
  • Ease of Use
    Sketches can be converted to an app and downloaded to an iPad® or iPhone® (which converts to an HMI panel for control of the Pocket IO)
