|EMBEDDED PLCS WITH ETHERNET
The FMD88-10 and the FMD1616-10 PLCs combine the powerful and easy-to-use iTRiLOGI Ladder+BASIC software with a wide array of features, including built-in digital and analog I/O, PWM, PID and more. The FMD88-10 comes with eight digital inputs, eight digital outputs and 10 analog I/Os, while the FMD1616-10 comes with 16 digital inputs, 16 digital outputs and 10 analog I/Os.
|PAC AND DAQ AT PLC PRICES
The Foxboro (PAC) System provides integrated hybrid control and data acquisition at the price of a PLC. It is built for installations with fewer than 3000 I/O points and marries high-density I/O modules with cost-effective redundancy options, energy efficiency, continuous analog, logic and sequential control, and secure data recording at point of measurement.

|LITTLE PC WITH BIG TEMPERATURE RANGE
Valueline industrial PCs now include the VL BPC Mini, a miniature embedded box PC. The first model available is a wide-temperature version that operates between -40 ºC and +65 ºC (-40 ºF to 149 ºF). It has a fanless design in a compact, DIN rail-mountable package. In addition, it has high shock and vibration ratings, which makes it suitable for rugged applications.
|MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE; ATTRACTIVE PRICE
A new CPU board with an Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 processor provides a more powerful platform for Automation PC 810 and Panel PC 800 devices. The combination of the 2.26 GHz Core2 Duo processor and the GM45 chipset provides the highest levels of performance at an extremely attractive price, even for the most demanding applications such as vision systems. Both processor cores share a 3-MB level 2 cache.
|ALL-IN-ONE PANEL PC WORKSTATIONS
Stealth.com’s new rugged, industrial-grade Panel PC workstations are built to survive in industrial environments. They’re available in 19-, 17- and 15-in. LCD sizes, and are powered by a fully integrated Intel Core 2 Duo-based computer, offering a multitude of I/O connectivity. The panel-mount, stainless-steel front bezel is environmentally sealed to comply with NEMA 4X/IP56 specifications.
Allen-Bradley ControlLogix L7 series PACs offer enhanced memory and process capabilities, and enable seamless integration with motion drives through EtherNet/IP and SERCOS network interfaces. They are equipped with a 1-GB secure digital card and USB port, an on-board display with enhanced controller diagnostics and run-time information, and an energy storage module.
|RUGGED OPERATOR WORKSTATIONS
VisuNet Industrial 900 Series operator workstations withstand even the harshest oilfield operating conditions. These 15- or 19-in. monitors are encased in a rugged NEMA 4/4x stainless- or painted-steel housing, suitable for Class I, Division 2 hazardous area installation. They feature a glove-friendly touchscreen, and are available in transflective models for clear outdoor viewing,
|EMBEDDED WITH INTEL
UNO-2174A and UNO-2178A Intel Atom-based embedded computers have low power consumption, dual-core 1.67GHz Atom CPUs and 2GB DDR2 RAM. They are IP40 anti-dust ingress- rated, and assessed to work in temperatures ranging from -10 °C ~ 70 °C (14 °F to 158 °F). Both come with 5.1 HD channel audio and 4 x serial ports (2 x RS-232/485 and 2 x RS-232/422/485).

Click micro brick PLCs now include standard CPU units. The new units feature eight discrete inputs and six discrete outputs, and are available in four combinations of built-in I/O types. In addition to two RS-232 RJ12 communication ports, the standard CPU units have one RS-485 communication port, and feature real-time clock and battery backup for the internal SRAM.
The SNAP-PAC-R1-W rack-mounted programmable automation controller offers IEEE 802.11a/b/g Wi-fi networking, two independent 10/100 Mbps wired interfaces for standard Ethernet networking, and one RS-232 serial port. It provides control, communication, I/O processing, remote monitoring and data acquisition functions, and is fully integrated with Opto 22’s PAC Project software.
FA-M3V range-free, multi-controller PLC delivers unrivaled CPU scanning speed performance for discrete and batch process manufacturing. It can scan a 100 K-step program in just 1 millisecond. With a built-in Ethernet port, it delivers single-module processing and eliminates communications overhead. It provides a login function with three different layers of access control.

MasterLogic PLCs can be deployed in a standalone mode without any human-machine interface. They can also be used as an additional controller with Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) architecture, and are compatible with Honeywell’s portfolio of process control systems. With integration, they can control multiple processes with one common operator interface.
