Getting to know the Micro800 Control Systems

Micro800 is one of Allen Bradley PLC product. It consists of Micro810 Micro800, Micro830 and Micro850. For Micro810 has I / O as much as 12-26 points, Micro830 has I / O as much as 10-48 points, Micro8500 has I / O as much as 24-48 points and all communications using Serial RS232 / 458 and was able to communicate with Ethernet controller. PLC type is used for simple applications such as for traffic lights, packing, material handling, control of compressor, solar panel positioning, heating and cooling control, and elevator control. Software for this product Connected Components Workbench is provided free of charge by Rockwell Automation and can be downloaded from their website.

The Products of Micro800 Control System

  • Micro800 Plug-in Modules.
    This module uses I/O without increasing the footprint of your controller.

  • Micro810 Controllers
    You can use Micro 810 with high-current relay outputs with micro-PLCs language programming

  • Micro820 Controllers
    Simple controlling system in the industrial plant is fit for this small standalone machine control such as Micro820 Controller. It just needs a little flexible communication and I/O capabilities

  • Micro830 Controllers
    In addition of 820 Controller, you can also make control system for stand-alone machine control applications uses Micro830 Controller.

  • Micro850 Controllers
    This controller was designed for larger stand-alone machine control applications.

  • Micro850 Expansion I/O Controllers
    If you run more complex control system, then Micro850 controllers is fit for your plant by maximizing flexibility of the I/O count and type.
