Omron’s CP1L-E offers remote access and communication over different protocols simultaneously.
Omron Automation and Safety introduced it CP1L-E, a compact PLC line that includes an embedded Ethernet port with socket services. This feature allows for the adoption of multiple protocols, including UDP, TCP, Modbus TCP and the Omron FINS Ethernet protocol. The CP1L-E’s Automatic-Connect function connects instantly over a default IP address to a switch or directly to computer or HMI without a crossover cable. There are currently three Ethernet-enabled versions of the CP1L-E available, offering 20, 30 or 40 I/O points (expandable to 160 I/O points). These models include two embedded 1-10V analog inputs. If more analog I/O is required, the unit can be expanded with modules to add two additional inputs and outputs. All models of the CP1L series provide four high-speed encoder inputs and two high-speed pulse outputs, as well as several function blocks. Expansion capability includes options for digital and analog I/O, temperature inputs and serial interface boards.
