The FATEK FBS Series PLC is a new micro PLC generation outfitted with outstanding functions compare to medium or large PLC, it contains up to 5 communication ports. The maximum numbers of I/O are 256 points for DI (Digital Input) and DO (Digital Output), 64 words for NI (Numeric Input) and NO (Numeric Output). The FBS Main Units are offered in three types: High-Speed NC Type (MN), High-Performance Type (MC), and Economy Type (MA). A total of 17 models are offered with the I/O point combination ranges from 10 to 60. 14 DI/DO and 12 NI/NO models are existing for Expansion Units or Modules. The peripherals communications are available with 14 modules and boards with interface options in Ethernet, USB, RS485 and RS232.
All the FBS-PLC Main Units have the same structure of physical. The difference is only the case width. There are 4 different case sizes, which are 175mm, 130mm, 90mm, and 60mm. The below is the Main Unit case of the FBS-24MC:
