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.

  • Generous data register of up to 12k or 32k words
  • Independent comment memory
  • USB2.0 port provides high-speed program transfer

RTD input unit

FP0R RTD input unit

The new module determines temperatures with extreme precision and is easy to use. The temperature data obtained using the RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) is converted to the digital value to be read by the FP0/FPS control unit.

  • The module can be easily installed in an existing system.
  • Multiple RTD types are allowed in one module, yielding a cost-effective solution.
  • The temperature data measured can be converted to either degrees Celsius or degrees Fahrenheit inside the FP0 RTD unit.
  • A broken RTD can be detected.

Available RTD types: Pt100 (to IEC751), Pt1000 (to IEC751), Ni1000 (to DIN43760)

  • Between thermocouple input terminals and control unit internal circuits: photo-coupler insulation/DC-DC insulation
  • Between thermocouple input terminal channels: PhotoMOS relay insulation
  • Up to three units can be added to each control unit enabling temperature control of up to 24 channels.
  • Broken thermocouples can be detected.



The FP0 DSP2 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.



MEWNET-F is remote I/O system with reduced wiring that connects PLCs and I/O slave stations; via 2-core cabling. By adding an I/O link unit to the FP0, you can link a master station PLC and FP0 inputs and outputs via the network.

Relay output terminal FP0-RT8Y-6A

FP0R relay output terminal

The FP0-RT8Y-6A unit provides reliable insulation between peripheral equipment and the PLC system, even for electrical loads up to 250VAC/6A. Standardized MIL connectors establish a direct connection to the FP0R or FP0 unit.
