HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – Omron Automation and Safety developed the CP1L-E to meet the needs of today’s machine builders for remote access and communication over different protocols simultaneously. The compact and powerful CP1L-E with embedded Ethernet connects seamlessly to the Internet, providing remote access, monitoring and data logging that can reduce an end-user’s technical support costs and provide faster diagnostic response. Its embedded Ethernet port with socket services (typically available only in larger, modular PLCs) enables OEMs to adopt whatever protocol their application requires, including UDP, TCP, Modbus TCP and the Omron FINS Ethernet protocol for simple connection to other Omron PLCs and HMIs.
The CP1L-E’s Automatic-Connect function saves valuable set-up and programming time. It connects instantly over a default IP address to a switch or directly to computer or HMI without a crossover cable – as quick and easy as USB. There are currently three Ethernet-enabled versions of the CP1L-E available, offering 20, 30 or 40 I/O points (expandable to 160 I/O points). These models include two embedded 1-10V analog inputs – if more analog I/O is required, the unit can be expanded with modules to add two additional inputs and outputs. All models of the CP1L series provide four high-speed encoder inputs and two high-speed pulse outputs, as well as several ready-to-use function blocks for easy positioning. Expansion capability includes options for digital and analog I/O, temperature inputs and serial interface boards.
The CP1L-E meets the following standards: UL (Class I Division 2 Products for Hazardous Locations), CSA, cULus, cULus (Class I Division 2 Products for Hazardous Locations), cUL, NK, Lloyd, and EC Directives.
