Models are available with 16, 24 and 40 I/O, each with 24 Vdc or 100-240 Vac input power. Basic instructions can be executed in 0.042 µs, and program memory is 640 kB. There are 1024 timers, and six of the 512 counters are high-speed at rates up to 100 kHz. These capabilities are combined with extensive data and bit memory, double the capacity of a typical micro PLC, and enable the PLC to handle large programs with complex control requirements such as PID, flow totalization and recipes. Up to 12 expansion modules can be added to the 16 I/O model, and up to 15 expansion modules can be added to the 24 and 40 I/O models. These modules can be of any type with no restrictions as to the number of analog and specialty modules. This gives the 40 I/O model the capability to handle up to 520 I/O with a maximum of 126 analog I/O, much more than a typical micro PLC. Suggested applications include oil & gas, chemical, solar, marine, packaging, food & beverage, material handling, utility vehicles, and OEM machinery and process skids.
