Designed for cost-effective control, the newly-designed Versatile Base Series Controllers from Divelbiss Corporation provide powerful features in an open-board format. "The Versatile Base 2000 Series solves today’s tough control issues with all the advanced features needed in one product family,” said Terry Divelbiss, Company President. Adding, “Our customers asked for this solution and we delivered. ”Typical applications for the VB-2000 Series of controllers include machine, process, and batch control, material handling, engine-driven pumps, compressors and generators, hydraulic equipment as well as oil & gas production equipment. The VB-2000 Series provides solutions for counting, batching, on-off control, proportional valve control and many others while providing multiple communications options including J1939, NMEA 2000, Modbus Master/Slave and Modbus TCP over Ethernet.
The VB-2000 series includes multiple models of programmable logic controllers with digital I/O, analog I/O and expansion capabilities including thermocouple inputs and an HMI interface (LCD display and keypad) to allow operators to set parameters and identify alarms and faults. Divelbiss customers have come to expect high-quality controllers that withstand adverse conditions and the VB-2000 series is no exception. Terry Divelbiss explains, “With an operating temperature of -40 degrees Celsius to 80 degrees Celsius, the VB-2000 series is able to control in almost any environment regardless of temperature.” The VB-2000 Series Programmable Logic Controllers are based on the P-Series PLC on a Chip. The PLC on a Chip provides powerful functionality with ease of programming using EZ LADDER Toolkit which supports ladder diagram and Structured Text.
