Fredericktown, OH -- Divelbiss Corporation announces the introduction of enhanced models and expansion capabilities of the P-Series Bear Bones Family of OEM programmable logic controllers. The P-Series Bear Bones PLC family offers powerful control capabilities and is now telematics and IoT enabled with the Divelbiss VersaCloud M2M platform. Programmed using the no-cost Divelbiss EZ Ladder Toolkit in Ladder Diagram, Function Block, and Structured Text, and based on P-Series PLC on a Chip™ technology, the P-Series Bear Bones PLC family provides maximum flexibility for interfacing to and controlling equipment, communicating with various serial bus protocols, logging system data, or adding Internet of Things (IoT) and Telematics capability to existing systems.
Featuring open-board construction, P-Series Bear Bones PLCs are mounted using industry standard standoffs and have an I/O count with 8 digital inputs, 8 digital outputs rated for 2A each, and 8 analog inputs which are user configurable as 0-5V, 0-10V, or 0-20mA. One CAN port is available and fully supports the SAE J1939 protocols , the NMEA2000 protocols and can be used to communicate to digital I/O expansion boards and other controllers using Divelbiss OptiCAN.
P-Series Bear Bones PLC with IoT
Using plug-in expansion boards, the P-Series Bear Bones PLCs have optional cellular and Wi-Fi capabilities for IoT/Telematics communications with the VersaCloud M2M platform. A GPS option is also available. Ethernet and Wi-Fi ports can be used for MODBUS TCP Server and Client communications.
For applications that require data logging, P-Series Bear Bones PLC family solutions are available with a Real-Time-Clock, 512K of battery backed SRAM, and can accept a micro SD card. These features give the user ultimate flexibility and options for implementing data buffering and logging. When utilized with the Divelbiss VersaCloud M2M platform, the P-Series Bear Bones PLC can communicate data to VersaCloud, where it is date/time stamped and stored in the Cloud database for later viewing, analysis, and export. The P-Series Bear Bones PLCs support supply and I/O voltages from 8-32VDC and 90-130VAC, and can operate over a wide operating temperature range of -40°C to +80°C, making them suitable for use in many applications.
The P-Series Bear Bones PLCs give the user the ability to provide machine control, Data Logging and IoT /Telematics connectivity to virtually any application in the mobile, industrial, environmental, agricultural, construction, and other markets. As a part of the Divelbiss VersaCloud M2M complete end-to-end IoT connectivity solution, the P-Series Bear Bones PLC family provides a powerful, flexible system to enable remote control and communications.
