EATON has introduced the new ultra fast compact Panasonic FP-X PLC after its great success with the compact FP0 series. The Panasonic FP-X PLC is set to redefine the industrial brick style PLC with new levels of expandability in a small robust package.
With its super fast (0.32µsec/inst.) processor, large program memory, 8 built-in high speed counters, Modbus master/slave, and new stackable expansion cassettes, the Panasonic FP-X PLC is well suited for most control applications.
Equipped with industry's first USB port, the FP-X has a direct connection with a PC via a commercial USB cable (AB type).
Program updates are easily carried out by transferring the program in the master memory to the Panasonic FP-X PLC even during an upload-prohibited condition.
The transferred program in the Panasonic FP-X PLC is setup with the same upload prohibition and permission conditions used in the master memory.
Panasonic FP-X PLC solves user concerns with a maximum of 300 I/O channels. The number can be increased up to 382 points by using the add-on cassettes and FP0 Panasonic PLC expansion units.
