IDEC MicroSmart Pentra has always meant speed, flexibility and power. The MicroSmart Pentra PLCs packs even more features into a small footprint to create an even more powerful controller with a response time up to 16 times faster than leading competitors’ PLCs. The new embedded Ethernet MicroSmart Pentra with web server functions boasts powerful features that no competitor in the micro PLCs market can match. With an embedded 10/100Mbps RJ45 ethernet port and remote connectivity, communication can be done at a faster speed. These controllers not only support Modbus TCP, but also have the capability to send up to 255 email messages with dynamic data and have 1MB for a user web page. These PLCs can be configured to communicate with IZUMI WindLDR software, IE/Firefox/Safari web browsers, WindSRV OPC software, HG operator interface, and Modbus TCP, all at the same time. Up to 14 simultaneous connections can be established! All new batteryless models are designed with MRAM memory so your PLC can store values permanently. This makes them ideal for applications that need to retain critical data permanently, beyond the 30 days and limited life expectancy of a backup lithium battery. Every CPU module comes equipped with embedded I/O points, and you can conveniently add snap-on expansion modules for up to 512 I/Os based on your system requirements. All MicroSmart controllers are DIN-rail and panel mountable. All MicroSmart Pentra PLCs meet the highest standards for safety including: cULus listed for Class 1 Division 2 hazardous locations, CE compliant, as well as certified for marine use by ABS, DNV, and Lloyd’s Registry.
