The Micro870 controller is the latest addition to the Micro800® family, offering machine builders and end users a new level of scalability, flexibility and customization. The Micro870 controller is designed for larger stand-alone applications and comes standard with large-capacity memory to accommodate more modular programs and application user-defined function blocks. The embedded motion control function supports up to 2-axis motion control, and the TouchProbe instruction can record the position of the axis more precisely than using interrupts. In addition, Micro870 controllers can communicate with other devices over a variety of networks via EtherNet/IP™, serial ports, and USB ports.
• Machine can be expanded to support up to 8 expansion I/O modules and 304 discrete I/O points to meet operational needs
• Easily program devices and connect to HMI via EtherNet/IP
• Symbolic addressing via client-side messaging to easily control drives and communicate with other controllers • Significantly reduce machine development time with up to 280 KB of memory and support for up to 20,000 programming steps
• Reduce wiring time with removable terminal blocks
