Cutler Hammer PLCs

Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are microprocessor-based devices used to control industrial processes or machines. PLCs were originally designed to replace control relays, timers and counters found in conventional hardwired control systems. PLCs have since expanded in capability to perform virtually all of the complex functions required to control an industrial process or machine. Today's PLCs can provide advanced functions, including analog monitoring, control and high speed motion control. PLCs can also share data over communication networks.

The ELC (Eaton Logic Controller) family of PLC products is designed using the latest technology. ELC products are small and feature-rich. An abundance of module options allow users to specify their ELC solution, satisfying requirements and saving space, time and money

Cutler Hammer PLCs
Product Overview:

Size - provides large PLC features/functions in a small 1" package.

Flexibility - handles I/O counts from 10 I/O up to 256 I/O using a single controller. ELCs eliminate the process of counting I/O and deciding which controller to use as modules can easily be added and removed as needed. ELC modules come in many flavors of I/O from modules containing 4 In / 4 Out to modules containing 8 In / 8 Out. ELC controllers and modules mount to a DIN rail and the modules are added by simply snapping them into the mating connectors and closing the attached locks.

Large PLC Features - includes the feature set of larger PLCs such as multiple communication ports, remote I/O, data storage, high speed counters, high speed pulse outputs, interrupts, timer resolution to 1ms, PID, plus much more.

Software - the entire line of ELC controllers are programmed by using the ELCSoft software that runs on your PC or by using the hand held programmer accessory. These tools can also be used to easily upload, download and transfer programs.

Power of One - communicate easily to other Eaton devices without additional interface devices. ELCs can communicate with MVX drives, eliminating the need to operate drives by analog voltage/current or digital I/O. ELCs can access all of the parameters in the MVX by serial communications saving OEMs time and money. ELCs also communicate to IT. I/O through the Modbus TCP gateway allowing ELC to control the IT. I/O if local control is desired. This allows local control in MCC applications where the ELC can be a DeviceNet, Profibus, or Modbus TCP communicating to an MCC. ELCs communicate to PowerNet Modbus products allowing ELC connectivity to Switchgear and PowerNet applications.
