Omron CP1L-E programmable controller with embedded Ethernet



Nov. 24, 2015 – Omron Automation and Safety says it developed the CP1L-E to meet the needs of today’s machine builders for remote access and communication over different protocols simultaneously.

The CP1L-E with embedded Ethernet connects seamlessly to the Internet, it says, adding that it provides remote access, monitoring and data logging that can reduce an end-user’s technical support costs and provide faster diagnostic response. The embedded Ethernet port with socket services enables OEMs to adopt whatever protocol their application requires, it notes, including UDP, TCP, Modbus TCP and the Omron FINS Ethernet protocol to connect to other Omron PLCs and HMIs. The CP1L-E’s Automatic-Connect function connects over a default IP address to a switch or directly to computer or HMI without a crossover cable. There are currently three Ethernet-enabled versions of the CP1L-E available, offering 20, 30 or 40 I/O points (expandable to 160 I/O points). The CP1L-E meets the following standards: UL (Class I Division 2 Products for Hazardous Locations), CSA, cULus, cULus (Class I Division 2 Products for Hazardous Locations), cUL, NK, Lloyd, and EC Directives.
