Drivers for IDEC and other PLCs

FT1A Touch can easily be configured to communicate withIDEC or other PLCs such as Siemens, Automation Direct, Mitsubishi, Omron, and more.

Ethernet Connectivity

With the embedded RJ45 Ethernet port, FT1A project filescan be remotely uploaded or downloaded over an Ethernet connection. Critical logging data can also be retrieved quickly.

Modbus TCP or RTU

The built-in Ethernet ports allow the FT1A Touch to be configured as a Client (Master) or Server (Slave) on the Modbus network. Modbus RTU (Master) is also supported. With these capabilities, FT1A Touch can communicate with other PLCs or devices using Modbus protocol.

Ladder Program and I/O status

Ladder programs can easily be monitored and controlled on the 3.8" (3.7"monochrome) display. It is a unique tool to debug the system without using WindLDR software and a PC. I/O status and any control parameter such as data register, timer, and internal relay can also be monitored and controlled.

Fast Start-up

Once power is applied to the FT1A Touch, it takes only 3 seconds for it to be fully functional. The fast start-up allows for fast, easy debugging and stress-free operation.

Control Features

10 Amp Relay Contacts

All FT1A SmartAXIS controllers are equipped with 4 point 10 Amp relay contacts. Traditional PLC relays are only rated for 2 Amps. This reduces the need to use interfacing relays and save time and money.

Fast Processing Speed

Don’t compromise processing speed for other functions! With FT1A Touch, basic instructions can be processed in 1850µs per 1000 steps of programming.

Digital and Analog Inputs

The FT1A Touch is equipped with eight digital inputs of which two can be configured as 0-10V DC analog inputs with 10-bit resolution. These built-in analog inputs can reduce overall system cost.

Analog Expansion Cartridges

Using analog expansion cartridges, FT1A Touch can accept 0-10V DC, 4-20mA, RTD and Thermocouple inputs, with 12 to 15-bit resolution.

Digital Expansion Cartridges

Up to 8 digital I/Os can be added to the FT1A Touch with 2 expansion cartridges. The input expansion cartridges accepts 12-24V DC signal.

Built-in Analog Outputs

Two 0-10V DC, 4-20mA analog outputs

Data Logging

Critical data can be saved and logged into the USB memory stick. Logged data can be easily be retrieved over Ethernet connection or simply plug the USB memory stick to your PC.

Easy Program File Transfer

Project files can easily be transferred between a USB memory stick and the FT1A Touch. It’s a quick and convenient way to quickly update ladder and HMI programming or to program multiple units without connecting to the FT1A from a PC.

Large Memory Programming

FT1A Touch is equipped with abundant memory capacity. With 48KB of logic controls programming, complex PLC programs can be constructed without much restriction. And with 5MB of configuration memory for the display, a unique and professional display interface can be easily configured.

Ethernet Connectivity

With the embedded RJ45 Ethernet port, FT1A project files can be remotely uploaded or downloaded over an Ethernet connection. Critical logging data can also be retrieved quickly.

High-speed Counters

There are eight built-in inputs, four of which can be configured as high-speed counters with a maximum frequency range of 10kHz for single-phase or 5kHz for dual-phase.

PID Controls

With an improved PID algorithm and easier-to-configure dialog box, PID controls can be monitored using a single screen. Advanced PID control functions, such as auto-tuning, ARW (anti-reset windup) and bumpless transfer, are also supported.
