October 19, 2010 - Phoenix Contact introduces an upgraded base station for the Nanoline controller. The nLC-055‚Äôs four-function math capability and integrated analog inputs increase the Nanoline‚Äôs flexibility. The nLC-055 is a simple controller for small to mid-size machines with limited I/O points. The model can add, subtract, multiply and divide, as well as perform modulo (percentage) operations. Other new features include two analog inputs with 12-bit resolution, eight digital inputs, two high-speed counters, a built-in real-time clock and retentive memory and four relay outputs.The base station is compatible with the original Nanoline‚Äôs expansion modules for GSM, Ethernet, I/O, RS-232, RS-485 and USB. It also uses the same operator panel and mounting kit as the nLC-050. The current model runs on 24 V DC power, but other versions for 115 V AC, 24 V AC and 12 V DC power are planned. The nLC-055 operates on version 3.0 of the nanoNavigator software, which offers both flow chart and Relay Ladder Logic (RLL) programming.
