Scalable, flexible PLC for extreme indoor/outdoor conditions

Feb. 29, 2024

AC500-XC is an extreme-condition PLC that’s resistant to high humidity, salt mist, vibration, high altitudes up to 4,000 m above sea level and hazardous gases, and can withstand -40 to 70 °C temperatures. It’s scalable, flexible, and offers the same engineering suite, I/O modules, communications modules and dimensions as ABB’s standard AC500 PLC. AC500-XC also features reinforced, gold-plated connectors that withstand vibration, shock and corrosion, as well as and sealed PCBs that prevent short circuits and corrosion, even in humid or dusty environments. Its built-in protections can replace expensive cabinets and cabling, making it ideal for wind turbines, water and wastewater treatment plants, construction machines, mobile and stationary cranes, marine, and mining applications.
