Toshiba International Corporation announces the latest addition to the V200 Series of Micro Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) with the launch of the V200 Micro PLC CPU with Ethernet Port. The Ethernet Port provides client and server networking solutions while preserving the exceptional size and affordability of the V200 Series.
The new V200 Micro PLC CPU (pictured right) features one Modbus TCP/IP Ethernet port, two serial com ports for peripheral connections and one USB port for programming.
As a server, the module can be programmed simply as intelligent I/O to a high level controller – only performing network control in the event of a network interruption. Client features of the port include master controller capability for small independent Ethernet networks. The V200 Series also includes native protocol for Toshiba’s Adjustable Speed Drives.
The V200 Series is used for machine-control, process skid-control and in any island of automation. The controllers also are UL rated for Class 1 Div. 2 hazardous locations.
The advanced communications and instruction capabilities allow the V200 Series to be an ideal replacement for larger and more expensive programmable controllers.
The V200 Series features small-type micro controllers suitable for both simple relay replacement and complex control applications. The instruction set ranges from simple ladder logic to double length math, for-next loops, logic operations, comparisons and other advanced program control operations.
