The modular concept allows for all models to use the same set of modules, i.e. to form various configurations from the same set of basic elements: from simple control systems with 16 I/O signals to complex plants with several thousand I/O signals, both digital and analog, from single-spot P/PD/PID regulators to distributed control systems.
The basic components, or “building blocks”, of an M series control system are different modules, that are grouped by their purpose and types of signals they can process.
Thanks to a powerful processor module the controllers feature embedded Web server and. BACnet IP or Modbus IP protocols can be used for communication with the rest of the system.
M SERIES PLC TYPES
- Digital Input Modules
- Digital Output Modules
- Analog Input/Output Modules
- CPU Modules
- Power Supply Modules
CPU module is delivered with system and communication software installed. For signal processing & conditioning, up to 16 I/O modules can be used (up to 256 I/O signals).
Their number and configuration depending solely on application requirements. Several PLC configurations can be interlinked to form a compound configuration.
M series control systems hardware configuration is performed by combining standard M series modules, depending on the given application requirements.
Every M series configuration must contain a Power supply module and a CPU module.
