Schneider Electric has released its Telemecanique brand Modicon M340, the latest addition to the Modicon line of programmable automation controllers (PACs). The Modicon M340 PAC is a platform that offers realtime logic solving, as well as communication, motion, and database and manipulation capabilities in multiple programming environments. It's specially designed for manufacturers of compact, modular, and complex machines, and is particularly suitable for applications in material handling, conveying, and secondary packaging. Like Schneider Electric's Modicon Premium and Modicon Quantum programmable controllers, the Modicon M340 PAC is programmed with Unity Pro, the latest IEC 61131-3 development software.
The Modicon family of PACs improves machine performance by providing exceptional control and reliability, in addition to simplifying setup and implementation by standardizing on a single programming tool. The hardware and software are tightly integrated and can be configured using the Unity software suite, which offers a choice of five IEC languages, graphic programming, and advanced online help.
The Modicon M340 PAC further simplifies use by automatically backing up data and applications in its internal Flash memory and SDbased memory card. The plug-and-load technology of the memory card enables easy updating of applications or transfer to other machines with no disruption of operation. The PAC easily integrates into the tightest spaces thanks to its compact dimensions.
