GPC® 15R with plastic mount for connection to Omega rails

The GPC® 15R is a powerful new control module characterized by an optimum price/performance ratio. With its modular design, the unit is ideal for the construction of architectures with distributed logic, affording optimum resources in terms of processing and I/O equipment interface. The GPC® 15R is able to solve many problems of an industrial nature even standing alone, and when necessary, its power can be upgraded and the fields of application expanded utilizing the on-board Abaco® I/O BUS. The module affords a set of connectors with standardized pin arrangements, notably facilitating the installation of the system. There is also a convenient quick release terminal strip for all I/O signals from the field. The GPC® 15R module is secured to an insulating mount with quick-fit connection to standard DIN 46277-1 and 46277-3 Omega Rails. Various power supply solutions are available, including mains. Accordingly, electronic devices and electromechanical control panel can be mounted together in a single panel enclosure, eliminating the typical costs of an extensive board installation.

With powerful software packages available, the user can rapidly and conveniently develop all such programs as may be required for a given application, and using high level programming languages. Programming and exploiting the resources of this module is extremely easy thanks to the help of the stout GDOS Romated Operative System. This latter supports high level languages such as BASIC, PASCAL, C Compilers and so on.; it makes available the memory resources as they should be ROM/RAM-Disk allowing an immediate use of this devices at high level. This module linked to the MCI-64 and FGDOS manages PCMCIA cards of RAM cards and, directly, the on-board Peripherals as serial EEPROM. In addition to that the GPC® 15R allows a direct management of LCD or Fluorescent Displays and matrix keyboard. For an immediate use of this command, KDL-224 boards are available, or if you need a finished object, there is the Operator Panel QTP 16P or QTP 24P. (See the Application Note). This Operator Panel, offered in the open frame version, bears the same aesthetic as QTP 24, but, as the local intelligence is not furnished, it is driven directly by GPC® 15R, allowing a notable cost reduction.

A/D Converter module for Abaco® I/O BUS direct interface to GPC® 15R. 8 A/D lines of 10 bits 100µs. 0÷2.5 Vdc input range or 4÷20 mA. Plastic mount for connection to Omega rails.

The FGDOS affords truly notable debug facilities, and allows to program directly on board a FLASH with the user program. The GPC® 15R is equipped with a series of standard Abaco® connectors allowing immediate use of the many BLOCK I/O modules available, or enabling a simple and inexpensive means of connections to equipment interfaces made by the user or by third parties. The various components of the board can also be used with evolved instructions, eliminating the need for direct interface with the hardware. Abaco® I/O BUS connector allows to drive directly ZBR 324, ZBT 324, ZBR 246, ZBT 246, ZBR 168, ZBT 168, ZBR 84, ZBT 84, and through ABB 03, ABB 05 and so on, it is possible to run all peripheral cards available on ABACO® BUS
