The new free firmware update has equipped the Micro PLC with an integrated web server, which allows arbitrary access via smartphone, laptop & Co. on data, diagnostics and status interfaces as well as freely definable visualization projects.
In addition to standard Ethernet protocols such as Modbus TCP or S7 communication, the Micro now also speaks Profinet. This means that up to eight Profinet devices can be easily connected and/or the Micro can be integrated as an I-Device in Profinet topologies.
In addition, the update adds useful features such as SNTP, pulse train output, MRP client, PNIODiag FB126 to the compact Vipa small controller.
In addition, the Micro system has been extended by three new modules: a digital output module with eight relay outputs and two analog output modules. Analog input modules are expected to be released in December 2017.
With this continuous implementation of new features and the development of new modules, the Micro PLC offers the user a multitude of new application possibilities.
Furthermore, the combination of high functionality and excellent performance in a very confined space raises the Micro to a new level in the control market and allows the customer to stand out from the competition.
New features at a glance:
- Integrated web server
- Profinet IO-Control & I-Device
- SNTP for the clock synchronization with a NTP server
- Pulse train output, e.g. for an easy drive of Yaskawa Sigma-5 and Sigma-7 servo drives
- MRP client for deployment in redundant Profinet topologies
- Support of easy standard diagnosis option for Profibus and Profinet via PNIODiag FB126
- Digital output module 8-tier relay DC30V/AC230V/2A
- Analog output module with 4 outputs, ±10V, 0..10V
- Analog output module with 4 outputs, 0(4) ... 20mA
- Analog input module with 4 inputs U, I, RTD,TC (scheduled for December 2017)
