IDEC is pleased to introduce new controllers designed specifically for limited I/O applications while still equipped with powerful and abundant features. The new SmartAXIS line of controllers from IDEC provides a cost-effective solution, giving customers more for less. The SmartAXIS inherited popular features such as built-in analog inputs, 10 Amp Relay outputs, a built-in Real Time clock, an embedded LCD screen and keypad, which are found in the SmartRelay and have the process capabilities of a micro PLC. SmartAXIS is available as a 3.8" HMI with 12 I/O PLC (HMI + PLC) called SmartAXIS Touch and 12, 24, 40, and 48 I/O PLCs.
Introducing the first ever IDEC HMI + PLC, the 3.8" SmartAXIS Touch is available in 65K TFT color or Monochrome. SmartAXIS Touch is an All-in-One Touchscreen interface and logic controller packed in a compact body that is big in features. It is perfect for small systems that require a user graphical interface and limited I/O controls. SmartAXIS Touch uses our new WindO/I-NV3 programming software, which can be upgraded free for existing WindLDR and WindO/INV2 users. WindO/I-NV3 is built on the same platform as WindO/I-NV2, making it intuitive and easy-to-use.
The 3.8" resistive touchscreen is equipped with 65K TFT color and a brightness of 400cd/m2 or a monochrome model with 8 shades and a super bright screen of 700cd/m2. The SmartAXIS Touch has an embedded RS232C/RS422/RS485 interface terminal for communication with other serial devices or Modbus RTU communications; USB Type A port for maintenance communication; and USB mini Type B port for data logging and recipe data. The built-in RJ45 Ethernet port also allows users to remotely connect to the unit. Modbus TCP is also supported. Like other similar IDEC touchscreens, SmartAXIS Touch can be mounted horizontal or vertically and has 5MB of programming memory. It is IP66f (watertight and oiltight) rated and available with a silver, light gray or dark gray bezel.
SmartAXIS Controllers are available with 12 (8 inputs, 4 outputs), 24 (16 inputs, 8 outputs), 40 (24 inputs, 16 outputs, and 48 I/O (30 inputs, 18 outputs) with and without embedded LCD/keypad. Each CPU is equipped with 2 to 8 point 0-10V DC analog inputs, an embedded real time clock, 10A relay contacts, 4 to 6 High Speed Counters up to 100KHz, and a USB mini B programming port. The 24, 40 and 48 I/O CPU is also equipped with an embedded Ethernet port for remote connectivity and Modbus TCP communications. An optional RS232 or RS485 adapter is also available for connection to other serial devices, such as an IDEC HMI and Modbus RTU communications. The 40 and 48 I/O CPU also have an embedded SD memory slot for data logging.
