FP-X0 series: multi-functional and cost-effective programmable controllers

The FP-X0 is an entry-level PLC with all the functions required for simple automation applications and the most common motion control tasks.

The multi-functional, yet inexpensive PLC

FP-X0 programmable controllers include the functionality required for simple automation applications (see highlights below). They are ideal for the most common motion control automation solutions, for example together with MINAS A5 servo drives and especially MINAS LIQI. CPUs are available with 14, 30, 40 and 60 I/Os and can be expanded to up to 216 I/Os.

Highlights FP-X0

  • Processing speed of 0.08µs/step for basic instructions for the first 3000 steps
  • Program capacity of up to 8k steps and 8k words data registers
  • Expandable with FP-X and FP0R analog units and digital I/O expansion units
  • Built-in analog input and real-time clock
  • Up to 2 serial communication ports can be used simultaneously (1 x RS232 + 1 x RS485)
  • Built-in 2-channel pulse output, e.g. for linear interpolation
  • Max. high-speed counting frequency of 50kHz (1 channel) and max. pulse output frequency of 50kHz (2 channels)
  • Program protection with an 8-digit password and a function which prohibits uploads
  • Compatible with all Panasonic FP series PLCs. The FP-X0 can be programmed using Control FPWIN Pro programming software in compliance with the international standard IEC 61131-3

Expansion Unit

PLC Compact FP-X0 expansion units Panasonic Industry

L40 and L60 controllers can be expanded using FPX/FP0R expansion units. You can connect up to a maximum of 3 FPX (Ver 3) expansion units reaching a maximum of 150 I / O. Through the FP0 (AFPX-EFP0) adapter you can use up to a maximum of 3 FP0R series expansion units (digital and analog modules, thermocouple or networking units) and two FP-X Expansion Units by making the expandability increase up to 216 I / 0.

Without expansion FP0/FP0R adapter: CPU + 3 FP-X expansion units (Ver. 3)

With expansion FP0/FP0R adapter: CPU + 2 FP-X expansion units + 3 FP0R expansion units
