Standard USB and RS232C Tool Ports can be further enhanced with the two expansion ports that support cassettes offering various combinations of RS232C, RS485 and Ethernet based communications if required.

Input and output capability is supported allowing up to 16 expansion units to be connected to the CPU for control of digital and analogue I/O, temperature control, high speed counting and positioning modules.

Programmed with Panasonics FPWIN Pro7 IEC61131-3 compliant multi language software that supports Instruction List, Ladder Diagram, Function Block Diagram, Sequential Function Chart and Structured Text programming languages.
