The P-Series in conjunction with Versa Cloud M2M is a complete end-to-end Cloud monitoring and control solution. “With the enhanced capabilities of the P-series PLC-on-a-Chip now linked to Versa Cloud M2M, it is easy to do monitoring, control, and data logging from a Cloud portal with a seamless connection over Ethernet, Wifi, cellular, or satellite” said Terry Divelbiss, company president. “The new P-Series is an easy-to-use solution using EZ ladder programming software and drag-and-drop widgets in the cloud portal.”
The features of the series allow for monitoring, data logging, and control to be applied via Ethernet, Wifi, cellular, or satellite to the Versa Cloud M2M dashboard. Hardware features also include: Ethernet communications and Modbus TCP, advanced serial communications including two CAN ports, Modbus master and slave, enhanced counter/timer functionality, 164 digital I/Os, up to eight 12-bit analog inputs, and one 10-bit analog output, integrated real time clock, SD card interface, SPI ports, quadrature counter, keypad and display interface, expanded user memory on chip, and accelerated scan times.
Divelbiss EZ ladder programming software allows for setup and programming to communicate with Versa Cloud M2M. The portal is configured using drag-and-drop widgets and an API can be developed to communicate with customer’s software, as well as sending email and messaging to required personnel. Machine control and communications with the portal is all included in one device. Applications include remote response monitoring, rental equipment, field testing, proactive machine maintenance, machine to machine control, and data collection for predictive maintenance.
The series has a temperature range of -40 ° to 85 °C and can be embedded in electro hydraulic and mobile equipment, motor drives, HMI’s, packaging equipment, telematics, remote field applications and various other applications.
