MicroSmart FC6A , a powerful PLC with up to 520 digital I/O and 126 analog I/O. The MicroSmart FC6A provides the power of a PAC (programmable automation controller) in a low-cost controller with a small form factor, making it an ideal fit for demanding applications.
The 16 I/O model has 9 inputs, and 7 relay or transistor outputs. Up to 4 expansion modules can be added to the 16 I/O model.
All models have a built-in RJ45 Ethernet port, and an RJ45 RS232C/RS485 serial port. A plug-in cartridge adds an additional RS232C/RS485 port. An SD memory port and a mini-B USB port can each be used for data logging, program storage/transfer, firmware updating or recipe storage.
The Ethernet port supports the Modbus TCP protocol, and the serial port supports the Modbus RTU protocol. IoT capability is provided by custom web pages which can be configured for remote monitoring and control. These web pages are stored in the MicroSmart PLC, which functions as a web server when its built-in Ethernet port or the HMI Ethernet port is connected to the Internet.
These web pages can be accessed via any web browser running on any Internet-connected device such as a remote PC, a tablet or a smartphone.
