IDEC SmartAXIS Touch Family | FT1A Series — All in one HMI + PLC: Universal Voltages: 24V DC or 100-240V AC
The newest family of controllers, from the industry's original manufacturer of micro PLCs, FT1A SmartAXIS controllers deliver affordability without compromise! With superior features and functions built in, design engineers can now enjoy more versatility and more choices for their automation needs than ever before. These simple, powerful controllers deliver an exceptional value, giving you the most bang for your buck! FT1A controllers are available with 12, 24, 40 or 48 I/O, while a 3.8-inch HMI + PLC is also available with sophisticated features and a super-bright LCD screen. Whatever your application requires, the FT1A SmartAXIS family has a solution.
All FT1A SmartAXIS controllers are equipped with 4 point 10 Amp relay contacts. Traditional PLC relays are only rated for 2 Amps. This reduces the need to use interfacing relays and save time and money. Critical data can be saved and logged into the USB memory stick. The built-in Ethernet ports allow the FT1A Touch to be configured as a Client (Master) or Server (Slave) on the Modbus network. Modbus RTU (Master) is also supported. With these capabilities, FT1A Touch can communicate with other PLCs or devices using Modbus protocol. Logged data can be easily be retrieved over Ethernet connection or simply plug the USB memory stick to your PC. Project files can easily be transferred between a USB memory stick and the FT1A Touch. It’s a quick and convenient way to quickly update ladder and HMI programming or to program multiple units without connecting to the FT1A from a PC.
The display (24 digits x 4 lines) can provide visual feedback of system status, I/O status, user configurable messages with dynamic data, bar graph, and ladder program monitor and controls
FT1A controllers are also available without embedded LCD/keypad. It’s a cost-effective, tamper-proof solution
With the USB mini-B port, communication with FT1A controllers is extremely convenient as standard USB Type A to mini-B cables can be used
The optional memory cartridge can be used to easily transfer programs from the internal ROM memory of FT1A controllers to a memory cartridge or vice versa. It’s a convenient method to update the PLC program in the field
Inputs on the 24V DC power models can be configured as digital, 0-10V DC analog or high-speed counters. Up to 8 analog inputs with 10-bit resolution and up to 6 HSC 100kHz can be configured
The embedded Ethernet port on the FT1A controllers provides users with easy access for remote maintenance and communication. It also supports industry standard Modbus TCP protocol. With Ethernet Remote I/O capability, the FT1A controller’s I/O can be easily expanded
Every FT1A controller is equipped with an embedded real-time clock for time-controlled applications. With the built-in, real-time clock, log data can also be tracked and, with just a click, daylight savings time can easily be setup
Up to two RS232C and/or RS485 communication cartridges can be plugged into the FT1A controllers to allow the PLC to communicate with other serial devices. It also supports industry standard Modbus RTU protocol
With up to 48KB (11,850 steps) of programming memory, FT1A controllers have enough memory for even complex PLC programming
With the embedded SD memory slot, critical data can be easily logged and retrieved over Ethernet connections or simply remove the SD card and plug it into your PC
The FT1A controller with relay outputs is equipped with four 10A relay contacts. The transistor outputs model is also equipped with two 100kHz high-speed outputs for simple positioning controls. With remote I/O capability, additional outputs can easily be added
