Intelligently Designed

Look around. IDEC SmartRelays are in everything from lighting controls to ice-making machines and grocery store misters when IDEC first introduced FL1 SmartRelay series in 2001. Proving reliable time after time, these intelligent logic modules are the ideal controller for simple automation tasks. A new sixth-generation of SmartRelays offer functions to give you even more flexibility and convenience. Advances include extended memory, a brighter display with higher LCD contrast, improved analog and high-speed inputs, an external text display, and upgraded programming software.

Up to 20,000 data sets can be logged and stored to a Micro SD card. This card can also be used for program storage, and for transfer of program data from one controller to another.
Up to 4 inputs can be configured as 5 KHz high speed inputs.
  • 12-24VDC
  • 24VDC
  • 24VAC/DC
  • and 100-240VAC/DC models
Up to four 0-10VDC analog inputs can be configured with a resolution of 0-1000.
Remote program download/upload/monitor
  • Integrated web server for remote monitoring and control
  • Easily create web pages without the need of HTML knowledge
  • Connection to Display Panel
  • Add expansion modules for additional I/O
  • Up to 12 expansion modules can be added
  • Total I/O: 24 digital inputs, 20 digital outputs,
