PLC FP0H with multiple interfaces for connection to various devices
High speed and high capacity
Thanks to two Ethernet ports, the FP0H can be integrated directly without a switch. With its processing speed of only 10ns per step, the FP0H is extremely fast. Thanks to its large program memory, the high-performance PLC can process up to 64k steps. The compact design makes the FP0H suitable for a large variety of applications. The programmable controller has proven to be perfect for demanding fields of applications such as telecontrolling.
- High speed and high capacity
The FP0H is 8 times faster than conventional models and needs only 10ns per basic instruction (up to 10k steps). With max. 64k steps, the program capacity is 2 times larger than conventional models. The shared memory can be allocated to program and data registers via a system register. This way, it is possible to allocate for example 64k words to the data registers when there are large amounts of log data or 64k steps to the program memory when there is a large number of programs.
- Expandable to 384 inputs/outputs with expansion units
The FP0H is equipped with 16 inputs and 16 transistor outputs (sink/source). The I/O number can be expanded up to 384 I/O with the FP0H / FPe / FP0R expansion units.
- High connectivity
Available interfaces: 2 Ethernet ports (Ethernet type only), 1 RS232C port, 1 USB port. The Ethernet type is compatible with EtherNet/IP, Modbus-TCP and MC protocol and can be connected easily to all kinds of robots and PLCs. In addition, communication cassettes can be installed.
The communication cassette system extends the serial communication functionality of the CPU without the need to buy or install a dedicated communication unit. There are 4 communication cassettes available: RS232C, RS232C x 2, RS485, RS232C and RS485. In addition, the shared program and data register memory means there is no need to buy a more expensive unit with more data space.
- High compatibility
The FPΣ (Sigma) and the FP0H without Ethernet functionality have nearly the same size so that it is easy to replace the FPΣ (Sigma) with the FP0H. Ladder programs written for FPΣ (Sigma) can be converted for FP0H to facilitate the replacement.
- SD memory card slot for the logging / trace function (Ethernet type only)
SD memory cards can be used to store programs for and from the PLC. This makes it easy to update programs quickly if necessary. In addition, they can be used for the logging / trace function. Logging can be performed with 4 simultaneously active files using various triggers such as bit, interval, instruction, and time.
- Motor control
The control unit can control four axes with pulse output (up to 100kHz per axis), so simultaneous control of 2-axis X-Y tables is possible. The configuration tool offers positioning tables to make it easy to set the parameters for movement amount, target speed, acceleration and deceleration time, operation mode, etc. For each axis parameters are shown for limit input logic, deceleration time to stop, and operation conditions for JOG operation and home return, etc.
- Supports FPΣ (Sigma) positioning units RTEX
The FP0H supports the three available types of FPΣ (Sigma) positioning units RTEX for controlling 2 axes, 4 axes and 8 axes. The positioning units RTEX can be used with servo drivers MINAS A5IIN / A6N for precise multi-axis position control. The Configurator PM setting software supports users from the configuration to starting and monitoring the system. You can check the positioning action with the help of test runs even when the control unit is in program mode.

Positioning units, suitable for ultra-fast linear servo drives
The positioning units support ultra-fast linear servo drives with a pulse output of up to 4Mpps and fast startup in 5μs. This makes them ideal for applications that repeat short-stroke actions quickly such as palletizing of electronics parts. A built-in high speed counter can detect abnormalities by counting feedback pulses from encoders during positioning.
