IDEC Corporation’s FC6A MicroSmart PLC with up to 520 I/O provides the power of a PAC (programmable automation controller) in a low-cost controller with a small form factor. Basic instructions can be executed in 0.042 microseconds, and program memory is 640 kB. There are 1,024 timers, and six of the 512 counters are high-speed at rates up to 100kHz. These capabilities are combined with extensive data and bit memory. These features allow the MicroSmart PLC to handle large programs with complex control requirements such as PID, flow totalization, and recipes, according to the company.
