New hardware challenge for PLCs

FGH’s integrated control unit (ICU) combines PLC functions with powerful continuous control capabilities to automate small machines and continuous processes simply and cost effectively.

Not only can the ICU handle digital inputs, logic functions and outputs simply and reliably, it is also able to handle complex analogue functions. Fitted with up to 40 modular mixed analogue or digital input/output channels, the ICU provides 8 PID loops, 6 profile generators and 50 ‘IF/THEN/ELSE’ function blocks that can operate on numerical variables or on logic functions.
