The analog I/O range for the CP1 series in the compact PLC range has been expanded with six new units. These contain both input and output units, mixed analog I/O units, and temperature sensor units.
High precision analog sensing and control
Offering a conversion resolution of 1/12,000 makes these new analog input units perfectly suited to high precision tension, pressure or flow control, and quality inspections with the use of measurement sensors. Besides offering a four-channel analog input and a four-channel analog output unit, two new mixed I/O units offering four-channel analog inputs and two- or four-channel analog outputs are also introduced. Controlling a drive for basic electric actuator solutions is still very common and using the mixed analog I/O units is the ideal solution where space and cost are important considerations. All units support a full range of voltage or current signals.
Accurate and flexible temperature I/O
Two new temperature I/O units are also introduced, one of which offers four-channel thermocouple inputs where two channels can be used for analog input (1-5V, 0-10V or 4-20mA), allowing you to combine temperature sensing and analog sensing in a single unit. The second temperature I/O unit offers a total of twelve thermocouple inputs suitable for extrusion moulding or larger oven applications for example. Both units offer our usual high accuracy and performance and temperature control is made easy with our PID Function Block and CX-Programmer.
The CP1 compact machines controllers are capable of performing many different automation tasks, from simple to more complex applications.
