PLC FP0R: new standard for compact PLCs

The FP0R is the new standard for compact PLCs offering enhanced functionality and an optimized performance.

Ultracompact with enhanced functionality

Due to its extremely compact design, the FP0R is particularly suited for small switching cabinets and other locations with limited space. Up to four axes can be positioned without an expansion unit, and the USB TOOL port ensures simple and fast transfer of programs. The FP0R convinces in demanding environments such as labeling applications.

FP0R - with enhanced, advanced functionality and performance

Our customers stand to benefit from the advanced features of the FP0R control units.

FP0R - same ultra compact size as FP0
The FP0R control unit has the same dimensions as the FP0: W25 x H90 x D60mm. You can connect up to 3 FP0 expansion units to the FP0R, yielding up to 128 I/O points at a total width of just 100mm!

FP0R- fully compatible with FP0 units
FP0R control units are the same size and color, and have the same pin assignment and wiring as the FP0 control units. The FP0R can use existing FP0 programs without needing to change them, making replacement as simple as “plug and play”. Of course, the FP0R can use all FP0 expansion units.

  • Ultra high-speed processing enhances productivity
    An ultra high speed of 0.08µs/step for basic instructions for the first 3000 steps and 0.58µs/step thereafter. The FP0R is ideal for positioning and process automation applications, e.g. in labeling machines.
  • Large programming capacity of 16k or 32k steps
  • Generous data register of up to 12k or 32k words
  • Independent comment memory
  • USB2.0 port provides high-speed program transfer
  • The new F-type FP0R provides maintenance-free and complete backup of all data without requiring a battery. Industry's first!
  • Highly advanced, built-in positioning functions
    • Jog operation
    • Individual settings for acceleration and deceleration for ramp functions
    • Target speed can be changed by an external signal input during jog operation or trapezoidal control
    • Can read encoder signals of up to 50kHz (pulse frequency measurement)
    • 6-channel high-speed counters and 4-axis pulse outputs can be used simultaneously
  • FP0R units provide various kinds of networking communication using a built-in interface or expansion units
    •  Ethernet (Modbus TCP/IEC60870)
    • Profibus
    • CC-Link
    • MEWNET-W0
    • C-NET
    • RS232C or RS485 serial communication

PLC Compact FP0R PROFIBUS EN Panasonic Industry

The FP0 DPS2 can operate either as a DP slave module or as a remote I/O system to which different decentralized inputs and outputs can be connected. A DIP switch can be used to switch between the two modes:

  • Mode 1: DP Slave module. Connect the FP0 or FPS CPU + expansion modules to the PROFIBUS network.
  • Mode 2: remote I/O. Connect up to three expansion modules without CPU to the PROFIBUS network.

In remote I/O mode, the unit can be connected to any PLC from any manufacturer that offers a PROFIBUS communication interface.
