The platform also provides communication, motion, and database and manipultion capabilities, in multiple programming environments. This easy-to-use programming software eliminates the need for multiple software packages used with different PLC platforms. The Modicon M340 PAC requires no batteries--flash memory backup eliminates program loss and maintenance costs during power failure. Its compact size (4”H x 3.7”D) fits 6" enclosures, reducing panel size and costs. Other features include high density 64 point I/O, 4MB memory, CANopen™, Ethernet and Modbus® industry-standard network connectivity, predeterminated cables with flying leads or Advantys™ Telefast® connections to reduce wiring time. Additionally, the M340 uses USB cables rather than proprietary cables, thereby promoting open standards and simplifying replacement, and it exceeds basic IEC requirements for environment, shock and vibration, allowing operation in tough applications.
