Packed with advanced features, this micro PLC delivers high-speed processing power in a compact design with embedded I/O. The PLC system can be easily expanded through CANopen using the Remote I/O Modules - a great advantage for OEMs with needs of small, scalable applications.

Nx-ERA Xpress Highlights
• High density I/O both Digital & Analog
• Programming by Codesys (r) - IEC 61131 based software
• Ethernet Port - TCP/IP, Modbus TCP/IP
• Industry 4.0 ready - OPC-UA, MQTT features
• RS-485 port with Modbus RTU Master protocol
• CANopen Master/Slave protocol
• SCADA and HMI interfaces available
• Built in HTML web server

There are several options to choose from, allowing the best solution for entry-level applications.

This product portfolio targets small control systems, offering models containing from a few digital inputs and outputs up to options with 43 I/O points concentrated in a single controller, including analog inputs and outputs with temperature support (RTD sensors).

In case of additional I/O needs, the PLC system can be easily expanded through CANopen using the Remote I/O Mode. This mode transforms the product into a non-programmable slave I/O device, which can then be connected to a XP3xx controller with CANopen Manager protocol. It can also be expanded using other available ports like Ethernet and RS-485.

Remote I/O Highlights
• Readily usable with Xpress micro PLC
• Available with CANopen and Modbus RTU interface
• Range of models for DI/DO and AI/AO
