SoftPLC Programmable Automation Controllers
SoftPLC provides a range of Programmable Automation Controllers (PACs) that all include a comprehensive list of functions and features, such as:
- Fully documented applications - all documentation resides in the SoftPLC
- Powerful logic set includes standard control elements plus special functions such as LOG DATA, SEND EMAIL, READ SQL, and more
- Embedded firewall and VPN
- Embedded web server
- Supports I/O systems and other devices from hundreds of vendors
- Supports a wide variety of Ethernet, serial and industrial network protocols
- Compatible with all HMI/SCADA products
- Supports user functions written in C++ or Java
- Same development software across entire product range (TOPDOC NexGen)
Smart SoftPLC in truly unique! In addition to all of the features/functions of every SoftPLC PAC (see above), Smart SoftPLC's provide unmatched capability in a base PAC at an unbelievably low cost. The included managed 4 port Ethernet router/switch with PoE and flexible fiber port options, 5 serial ports, and phone modem can reduce the number of required panel components, as well as support Gateway protocol converter applications. Flexible I/O interfaces support over 3,000 local points, remote Ethernet I/O, or industrial bus I/O such as Profibus, DeviceNet, and more. FPGA allows for easy customization for OEM applications.
SoftPLC Hardbooks embed all the features of SoftPLC PAC's (see above). SoftPLC Hardbooks are stand-alone industrial controller CPUs that can be used for applications requiring flexibility, extremely fast processing or I/O, interfaces to PCI bus cards (eg: motion, bus I/O), and more. Standard systems include 2 Ethernet ports, 2-4 serial ports, 2-6 USB ports, minimum 128MB memory, and removable compact flash. A wide variety of I/O (eg: Ethernet, Profibus, DeviceNet) and other interfaces are supported.
