Besides being available in a traditional “brick” design—10, 16 or 24 I/Os—and slimmer book type—16 or 32 I/Os—the MicroSmart Pentra can be customized to user requirements. Additional features include 32-bit data processing, floating point math, built-in Modbus master/slave, a maximum of 512 I/Os, built-in 100kHz high speed counters and 100kHz pulse outputs, a 62.4kB programming capacity, online editing, up to 56 analog points and multiple timers, counters, internal relays and data registers. With the release of the MicroSmart Pentra, the vendor has upgraded its WindLDR programming software to version 5.0.
Billed as the industry’s fastest micro controller, the MicroSmart Pentra features a new Logic Engine that can process basic instructions in just 0.056ms.
