Divelbiss enhances HEC-P5000 controllers

July 21, 2015 - Divelbiss announces HEC-P5000 controllers with 16 digital inputs, 3 high speed counter inputs, a quadrature encoder interface, 16 digital outputs rated for 2A each (of which 12 are PWM capable), and 2 analog inputs which are user configurable as 0-5V, 0-10V, or 0-20mA inputs.

Cloud Communications is via the Divelbiss VersaCloud M2M platform and programming is via no-cost EZ Ladder Toolkit inLadder Diagram, Function Block and Structured Text.

Based on P-Series PLC on a Chip technology, the HEC-P5XXX family is suitable for controlling mobile equipment, communicating with various serial bus protocols, logging system data, or adding Internet of Things (IoT) capability to existing systems.

If additional I/O is required, the CAN and serial ports may be utilized to communicate to expansion I/O. It features two serial ports, which are user configurable as RS232 or RS485, and supports MODBUS RTU/ASCII protocols as either a Master or a Slave device. The serial ports are also directly programmable via the Structured Text programming language, allowing the implementation of custom protocols, which makes them ideal for communicating to bar code scanners, RFID readers, or other serial devices. Two CAN ports are available and fully support the SAE J1939 and NMEA2000 protocols. Ethernet and Wi-Fi ports can be used for MODBUS TCP Server and Client communications, as well as IoT communications with the VersaCloud M2M platform. The HEC-P5XXX has optional cellular capability for communicating with the VersaCloud M2M platform. A GPS option is also available.

For applications that require data logging, the HEC-P5XXX family is available with a Real-Time-Clock, 512K of battery backed SRAM, and internal SD card. These features give the user ultimate flexibility and options for implementing data buffering and logging. When utilized with the Divelbiss VersaCloud M2M platform, the HEC-P5XXX can communicate data to VersaCloud, where it is date/time stamped and stored in the Cloud database for later viewing, analysis, and export. The HEC-P5XXX supports supply voltages from 8-32VDC and has a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +80°C, making it suitable for use in applications with extreme environmental requirements.

The HEC-P5XXX gives the user the ability provide machine control, Data Logging and IoT Connectivity to virtually any application in the mobile, industrial, environmental, agricultural, construction, and other markets. As a part of the Divelbiss VersaCloud M2M complete end-to-end IoT connectivity solution, the HEC-P5XXX provides a powerful, flexible system to enable remote control and communications.
