IDEC offer two new analogue expansion I/O modules for the MicroSmart and MicroSmart Pentra PLCs. With fast conversion times and 16-bit resolution, these modules provide complete power and flexibility to the systems. With the addition of up to seven analogue modules to the MicroSmart Pentra, the micro- PLC can be configured with 56 analogue I/Os, while gaining increased system throughput.
An 8-channel 0-10V DC/4-20mA input module, as well as a 2-channel -10 to +10VDC/4- 20mA output module is available with 16-bit resolution to provide the required accuracy and precision to the system.
These analogue modules easily snap-on to the right side of MicroSmart CPU modules without needing extra cables or requiring complex wiring. WindLDR software provides intuitive ladder programming, online editing and simulation mode and one-step configuring and communication with IDEC PLCs using built-in macro instructions.
