Modular high-speed PLC FP2SH

Scanning time of 1ms for 20k steps. With an operating speed at the top of its class, super high-speed processing is made possible. The result is a dramatically decreased tact time and high-speed device.

Specifications FP2SH CPU

A high-performance model for high-speed operation
Scanning time of 1ms for 20k steps. With an operating speed at the top of its class, super high-speed processing is made possible. The result is a dramatically decreased tact time and high-speed device.

Large programming capacity of up to 120k steps
Large programming capacities of 60k and 120k are available, depending on the model.

Combine modules like building blocks
I/O units, intelligent units, power supply units and backplanes can be used together for the FP2 and the FP2SH. I/O units can be located anywhere on the backplane.

Optional small PC card is also available
The small PC card is available for programming backup or data memory expansion. This allows you to process great amounts of data.

Built-in comment and real-time clock functions
These functions, optional with the FP2, are built right into the FP2SH.
