Configure Seven Communication Ports

Aug. 4, 2010
The MicroSmart Pentra micro-PLC is now available with an optional RS485 communication module. 
This makes the MicroSmart Pentra the only micro-PLC on the market that allows controls systems to seamlessly communicate with up to seven serial devices via RS232C or RS485, according to the vendor. With the new RS485 communication module, MicroSmart Pentra can talk multiple communication protocols on the same system, simplifying creation of a subsystem network using the vendor’s Datalink protocol or the standard Modbus RTU/ASCII protocol. For fast transmission speed, this unit also supports communication baud rates up to 115Kbps.IDEC Corp.www.idec.com800.262.IDEC
