The Bytronic PLCAB1R is a PLC trainer fitted with the Micro800 series PLC. The Micro800 series of PLC’s are designed to meet a variety of applications, with embedded Ethernet and Serial ports. It can function as a RTU (remote terminal unit) for remote machines with support for Modbus RTU and TCP. It has embedded support for 4 thermistor temperature inputs for use as a DDC (direct digital controller) for Building Management Systems. The Micro820 supports an embedded microSD slot that can be used for storing large amounts of data that normally cannot fit into memory for applications that require datalog and recipe. All files are stored in CSV text format for easy viewing and editing. The microSD card is also used for backing up and restoring the program, which can be used for duplicating the program in several machines.
Also, available as an optional extra, is the Allen-Bradley Micro800 Remote LCD Display. This connects to the controller’s embedded RS232 port and works as accessory for the Micro820 controller. With 4 or 8 lines of ASCII text and a tactile keypad, it can be used as a simple HMI. Its system menu is available in multiple languages for direct viewing and editing of controller variables. Controller’s Ethernet address can also be easily set from the menu. Supports front panel mounting as well as DIN rail mounting next to the controller.
