Panasonic PLCs

The FP7 represents the top of the range of our PLCs and incorporates all the functionality and performance of a modular PLC in an outstanding compact format with a height of only 90 mm (3.543 in). No power supply unit is needed if the CPU is directly connected to DC power. Expansion units are clipped together without backplane. Enhancing communication features can be added using communication cassettes.

FP7 Series

User's Manuals

The FP7 is dedicated to the total integration into Web applications. The standard CPU boards with Ethernet interface offer connectivity without limits, from remote programming to monitoring and data logging to FTP server and Modbus TCP. The PLC programs can be password protected. Additionally, different security levels can be set, according to customer needs. The CPU unit can store two programs. In the event of fault, no SD memory card is needed to return to a previously saved backup program.

Operational and program editing events are logged. Automatic logs of program download and upload are useful, especially for program debugging. The FP7 integrates several features that facilitate maintenance, diagnostics and troubleshooting. Set a maintenance schedule that is based on automatic measurement of contact switching cycles or overall ON time.

If you are looking for Panasonic FP7 PLCs, please call us at (844) 331-9378 or email us at info@clrwtr.com we will do our best to help you find the Panasonic FP7 series programmable logic controllers that you are looking for at the most competitive prices possible. If you are searching for Panasonic FP7 series PLC technical information (data-sheets) please use the datasheets or product selection guide page links.

Equipment operating time can be estimated. You can decide which equipment to give priority to reactivate if more than one item of equipment is idle. The FP7 has a large memory capacity for program and data (up to 234 k program steps or up to 976 k data words) and a high-speed processor (11 ns/step). Control FPWIN Pro is (up-and downward) compatible with all Panasonic PLCs.

FP7 programmable controllers are perfectly integrated with MINAS A5 servo drivers for accurate and sophisticated control in applications with up to 64 axes. Besides, it is possible to set linear or sinusoidal acceleration and deceleration; startup/stop and speed changes are easy to accomplish in applications with high inertia loads.

Since the positioning tool is independent of the ladder program, trial operation and debugging is possible using only the positioning unit.

Electronic cam control allows fast and precise movements and increases the productivity and dynamics in all non-linear movements. Using a configurator software, it is possible to create advanced motion profiles quickly and easily. The tool offers the possibility to insert electronic cam profiles for master and slave axes. Up to 16 cam profiles per slave axis and 20 different sections per master axis can be managed. The master axis can be either a physical or a virtual axis as well as an external encoder.

You can even manage complex movements in processes where you have to work on moving material without interruption, e.g. in wood, textile, plastic or paper applications with flying saws.

Datalogic Sensors

The AS1 Series photoelectric light grids are crossed beam area sensors able to detect all objects, with even 0.2mm thickness, inside a 100mm height, over operating distances reaching 3m between emitter and receiver. The AS1 area sensors represent the ideal solution for the detection of very small objects, even when passing in different positions inside the controlled height and width.

Toshiba PLC

Like The T1 Series, Toshiba's V200 Series PLCs are small type controllers suitable for both simple relay replacement and complex control applications. The V200 PLC's large memory (program and data register) make them ideally suited for applications previously requiring larger more expensive programmable controllers. The V200 PLC's high-speed performance makes them especially adept at sophisticated machine control applications.
