Basic instructions can be executed in 21 ns, program memory is 800 kB (100K steps), and data memory is more than double the capacity of a typical micro PLC, enabling the unit to handle large programs with complex control requirements such as PID, flow totalization and recipes. Two models are available, each with 24 VDC input power. The 16 I/O model has 8 inputs, and 8 relay or transistor outputs. The 32 I/O model has 16 inputs, and 16 transistor outputs. Each model also includes an integral 0-10 VDC analog input with 12-bit resolution. Each model can accommodate up to three plug-in discrete, analog, serial communication or Bluetooth cartridges. Each discrete cartridge has four discrete I/O points, either four inputs or four outputs. Each analog cartridge has two analog I/O points, either two inputs or two outputs. Up to 63 I/O expansion modules can be added. This gives the PLC the capability to handle up to 2060 I/O with a maximum of 511 analog I/O. In addition, FTP communication allows users to configure the unit as an FTP client or server for transfer of programs and logged data between a server and the PLC. Files can be stored at the PLC or logged to the PLC’s SD memory card for transfer to an FTP server.
