OMRON Releases New CP1L Programmable Controllers with Built-in Ethernet
CP1L-EL/EM-type programable controllers
- CP1L-EM-D-D 6 models
- CP1L-EL-20D-D 3 models
- CP1W-2 3 models
The CP1L-EL/EM-type CPU units released today are programable controllers with built-in Ethernet ports enabling low-cost Ethernet connection and designed to meet a wide variety of Ethernet connectivity needs in a wide range of fields.
The ability to send and receive messages means it is possible for a host computer to monitor the status of controllers and also receive feedback from the controllers about any onsite abnormalities they detect. The controllers also feature socket communications capability meaning it is possible to connect them with a wide variety of Ethernet-enabled control equipment.
The added function block memory (10K steps) improves reusability of user program assets and supports design standardization. The function blocks aid efficient creation of reusable programs used in various devices such as ladder programs used for Ethernet communications.
All the CP1L-EL/EM-type CPU units incorporate two analog inputs meaning that stand-alone CPU units can handle various applications such as monitoring for fluid level detection. For applications that require more than two analog inputs, up to six analog inputs and four analog outputs can be controlled by mounting analog option units without the need for an expansion unit.
