Divelbiss Corporation announces the release of its Harsh Environment Controller, the HEC-P5000. The HEC-P5000 Harsh Environment Controller is RoHS compliant, has a wide temperature range of -40 to 80 degrees Celsius and allows for programmable intelligence under less than ideal conditions. It features a sealed, water-tight enclosure, analog and digital I/O, high speed counting, TCP/IP, communications ports, CAN network communications and Structured Text programming.
“Our HEC-P5000 series is built for the most adverse of environments,” said Terry Divelbiss, Company President. Adding, “The Harsh environment controller can be directly machine-mounted and is the ideal solution for mobile, marine, agriculture, mining, oil, gas and most electro-hydraulic applications.”
In addition, typical applications for the HEC-P5000 include:
• Electro-hydraulic Systems
• Remote Locations Monitoring & Control
• Engine Driven Pumps, Compressors and Generators
• Mobile Equipment
• Material Handling
• Off Road Equipment
The HEC-P5000 Harsh Environment Controller is based on second generation patented* PLC on a Chip® technology, so the controller is easy to apply and program using the EZ Ladder® Toolkit PC based software. EZ Ladder software parallels the IEC-61131 standard and provides an easy to use interface. EZ LADDER Toolkit’s Structured Text allows for the creation of custom functions and function blocks. After a ladder diagram program is developed, it can be downloaded to the HEC controller via the serial port or Ethernet port. A streamlined Harsh Environment Controller, the HEC-P5100 is also available without the real time clock, Ethernet and serial communication ports.
