Panasonic FP7 programmable logic controller

Monday, 07 July, 2014 | Supplied by: Control Logic Pty Ltd

Panasonic has released the FP7 series programmable logic controller - a fast, 32-bit processor platform with a large adjustable memory capacity for programs or data and a high-speed processor capable of 11 ns/step. It incorporates all the functionality and performance of a modular PLC in a compact format with a height of only 90 mm.

The product lends itself to larger machine or plant control where I/O counts are high and there is more process-oriented control taking place. With the 16-bit analog cards offering 25 µs/channel conversion rates and an accuracy of 0.05%, precise control can be achieved. A powerful Ethernet communications option allows for field I/O or devices to be integrated via Modbus TCP/IP. Direct connection of 24 VDC to the processor eliminates the need for dedicated power supply units, and expansion units are clipped together without the need for a backplane.

The PLC programs can be password-protected and different security levels can be set. The CPU unit can store two programs so, in the event of a fault, no SD memory card is needed to return to a previously saved backup program. During development of a new program, or when updating a current one, program operation can be tested from the SD memory card without the need to download to PLC run memory.

The IEC61131-3 compliant programming software has been updated to FPWIN Pro 7 and is compatible with all Panasonic FP family PLCs.
