Microprocessor-based Hardware Features

Microprocessor-based Hardware Features

  • Microprocessor based controller.
  • Expandable architecture for distributed or centralized control systems.
  • Standard Small Panel (24wX30hX8d):
    • 16 Analog Inputs, 16 Analog Outputs
    • 64 Discrete Inputs or Outputs (2 I/O Racks).
  • Standard Large Panel (36wX60hX8d):
    • 64 Analog Inputs, 16 Analog Outputs
    • 160 Discrete Inputs or Outputs (5 I/O Racks).
  • Special-Order Floor-Mount Panel:
    • 64 Analog Inputs, 16 Analog Outputs
    • 224 Discrete Inputs or Outputs (7 I/O Racks).
  • Network and communications:
    • Four fully-independent serial ports (two RS-422/485, one RS-232/422/485, one modem/RS-232).
    • RS-422/485 differential serial network provides noise immunity.
    • Error detection and automatic link failure recovery.
    • On board modem with auto answer capability. Optional auto-dial out feature also available.
    • Optional open communications protocols including Modbus RTU, Allen-Bradley DF1, BACnet, and FrickTalk.
  • User interface:
    • Simple menu structure for easy access to all features.
    • Fast “Hot Key” menu access.
    • Alarm highlighting using reverse video characters.
    • Extensive status monitoring and data logging.
    • Standardized data entry.
    • Password control for both viewing and updating of screen data. Customizable by the end-user.
  • Self-diagnostics:
    • “Watch Dog” timer detects power loss, power droop, or microcontroller malfunction.
    • Binary error detection communications protocol insures accurate high speed transfer of data in harsh industrial environments.
    • “Self Test” software periodically checks controller for integrity and notifies user of any problems.
    • “Internal Panel Temperature” sensor is located on the microcontroller and is used to monitor and log panel temperature (Option).
