F-Series Embedded Ethernet PLC
with the control I/Os, the Fx1616-BA has built-in 32
digital I/Os (expandable to 256) that interface directly
to 24VAC or DC power, 8 analog inputs and 4 analog
outputs that are 0 to 10V range. Among the I/Os are 4 DC
outputs that can also be used as PWM or AC phase control
(light dimmer type) outputs, or to drive stepper
motor(s). Also, there are 3 high-speed encoder inputs, 6
incoming pulse frequency counter inputs, as well as a
built-in Infrared remote control interface. Unlike other
product makes, these incredible features come in the
standard package at no additional cost to the buyer/user.
More importantly, the Fx1616-BA's immense communication capability allows it to be used either as the master controller of a simple project such as in home automation, or as one of hundreds of "node controllers" in a complex buildng project. The built-in Ethernet port on the Fx1616-BA PLC hosts both a PLC web server and a Modbus/TCP server, allowing up to 6 simultaneous connections with devices such as touch panel HMIs), hardware running SCADA and PC software or other node controllers. The controller is also able to send out emails, create a report on its file system and upload to an FTP server, or check a specified website to retrieve dynamic contents. More standard interfaces on the PLC include one RS232 port and two RS485 ports, all of which support industry standard MODBUS RTU or ASCII protocols. A special set of interface pins is even provided on the PLC to allow addition of a third-party radio module known as XBEE which in turn enables this controller to interface to futuristic ZIGBEE wireless sensors and control modules.
Just as notable is Triangle Research's proven i-TRiLOGI "Ladder+BASIC" programming software which makes complex programming of the F-Series PLCs a whole lot easier than with standard ladder-logic programming! By combining the Ladder Logic program with a floating-point math-capable BASIC language (i-TRiLOGI version 7), this great controller is packaged to be ready immediately to interface to power meters, HVAC sensors, and/or talk to other controllers to carry out sophisticated control tasks in a commercial building project.
Some Building Automation applications for this PLC include roles as Main HVAC controller, Slave HVAC controller for VAV or CAV boxes, Lighting control and Audio-Video (AV) equipment control (learn and send 38KHz IR remote signal).
The Fx1616-BA replaces the previous F1616-BA as it now supports the floating-point math and variables available on i-TRiLOGI version 7. It is 100% backwards compatible to F1616-BA.
Fx2424 PLC has 24 digital inputs, 24 digital outputs and
12 analog I/Os built-in and is expandable up to 256
digital I/Os. It is capable of controlling and/or driving
up to 3 stepper motors directly with up to 4A per phase
@24VDC. Its high speed digital inputs allow up to 3
quadrature encoders which may be connected to provide
both position and speed information of moving devices.
With 1 RS232 port and 2 RS485 ports and all of them supporting Modbus ASCII/RTU protocols, the Fx2424 is fully equipped for connectivity to a whole range of peripheral devices. Furthermore, each Fx2424 comes equipped with an IR remote control receiver for contactless data entry, and supports an optional ZigBee wireless radio module - XBee supplied by Digi International Inc.

SmartTILE-Fx integrates a 32-bit CPU, FRAM & flash
memory, battery-backed Real Time Clock and an Ethernet
port on board. Its digital, analog and serial I/O signals
are brought to OEM's carrier board via 3 sets of header
Since all critical components are already built-in on board, An OEM only needs to design a simple carrier PCB that contains digital and analog circuit that interface the low voltage signals on the SmartTILE to the real world voltages and currents (could be 24V, 120V or 240V). The SmartTILE-Fx provides 16 digital inputs, 16 digital outputs (5V CMOS logic level), 8 analog inputs and 4 analog outputs (12-bit, 0-5V) and can be expanded to 128 digital inputs and 128 digital outputs.
SmartTILE-Fx provides 3
channels of serial ports (3.3V, Tx, Rx & /RTS) that
can interface to RS232, RS485 or even wireless radio. An
I2C port (3.3V) is also available, allowing OEM to
interface to specialty ICs that support I2C bus.
