The Allen-Bradley Micro820 programmable logic controller (PLC) features embedded Ethernet and serial ports and a microSD slot. Pulse-width modulation (PWM) output and recipe management makes it suitable for small machines, such as stretch wrappers and compressor control. Datalogging, analog and thermistor temperature inputs are essential for remote automation applications, including water pump control and air handling units. Connected Comonents Workbench software simplifies the configuration, design and maintenance of the controller. The latest version of this software adds support for additional machine devices.
