Industries particularly well suited to the MicroSmart PLC include packaging, food and beverage, material handling, utility vehicles, and OEM machinery and process skids. Within these industries, a wide variety of applications are a good fit for the MicroSmart PLC—especially those requiring control of standalone machines, process skids, vehicles and small-scale systems.
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 100 kHz. These capabilities are combined with extensive data and bit memory, double the capacity of a typical micro PLC. These features allow the unit to handle large programs with complex control requirements such as PID, flow totalization and recipes.
