Triangle 16 DI 16 DO 8AI / 2AO IO Ethernet FMD1616-10
The FMD1616-10 PLC packs an amazing amount of PLC hardware into a low cost. small foot-print circuit board. The flexibility of being an open board design. combined with the Ladder+BASIC programming software lets users quickly finish complex programming projects in much shorter time than traditional ladder-only PLCs or single board computers (which often require C language expertise and are not field-programmable).
With the inclusion of an onboard Ethernet port that can connect to other devices or web servers for control or data up/down-loading. 32 multi-functions digital I/Os and 10 analog I/Os (12-bit). the FMD1616-10 is a popular choice with system integrators for one-off projects as well as OEM equipment makers that employ hundreds or thousands of this great little PLC.
Built into the FMD1616-10 PLC are 16 digital inputs (includes 2 high speed encoders and 4 interrupts). 16 digital outputs (supports 4 PWM channels and 2 stepper motor pulse/direction controls) and 10 analog I/Os. Digital I/O capacity can be expanded to 128 digital inputs and 128 digital outputs using Triangle Research expansion boards EXP1616R or EXP4040. Analog I/O expansion modules which connect to the FMD1616-10's RS485 port are also readily available.
Like all Super PLCs. the FMD1616-10 is designed with ready connectivity to many peripheral device types. With the built-in Ethernet port and the iTRiLOGI client/server software. the FMD1616-10 is fully accessible for machine monitoring and OEM troubleshooting & reprogramming via the Internet. Built-in RS232 and RS485 connections and support of MODBUS protocols also makes the FMD1616-10 easy to integrate into mixed-brand PLC environments and networks.
Programming of the FMD1616-10 PLC is simplified with our powerful i-TRiLOGI Ladder+BASIC software that is shipped together with the FMD1616-10 Starter Kit. The FMD1616-10 PLC incorporates a program code security feature in the interest of Automation OEMs' program protection.
