Relio™ Custom Computing Solutions

Designed to operate with no moving parts, Relio systems combine the versatility of an industrial computer with the reliability of a PLC. While the standard Relio architecture is suitable for a wide variety of requirements, Sealevel offers design services that can create a custom system optimized for your particular application. We've put together a series of "Customer Spotlight" articles to illustrate these capabilities:

Emergency Communications

A world leading developer of critical two-way radio communications systems used by public safety and government organizations such as police and fire departments needed an ultra-reliable industrial computer to monitor remote site operations. Sealevel designed a custom Relio system to monitor all critical site functions and trigger alarms before communication can be jeopardized. This custom Relio runs on Microsoft Embedded XP and incorporates 120 optically isolated inputs, 96 digital outputs, 40 12-bit A/D channels, serial, USB, and Ethernet functionality into a 1U rackmount enclosure.

Public Security Systems

A manufacturer of security systems for public facilities required a 2U rackmount computer with a large amount of I/O to interface a variety of motors and sensors. The new system based on the Relio platform replaces a PLC and several discrete I/O modules. The design includes 32 optically isolated inputs, 32 relay outputs, A/D, D/A, and fieldbus functionality. Additionally 64 discrete LEDs mounted in the enclosure front panel display real-time I/O status information.

Event Notification

A customer that specializes in Homeland Security services contracted Sealevel to design a 1U rackmount computer that included DTMF (Dual Tone Multi-Frequency) and event monitoring capabilities. The system is capable of notifying appropriate contacts when an emergency event occurs and can even perform certain pre-defined control functions. Operator interface is provided using eight tri-color, programmable status LEDs mounted in the front of the enclosure.
