The new Micro PLC VIPA Control (photo) is an ultra-compact standalone PLC featuring high channel density. The system has a width of less than 72 mm, making it up to 50% smaller than typical micro controllers, says the manufacturer. Designed as a standalone PLC, the Micro PLC incorporates a new display and an operating concept that enables users to easily see essential control information. It is based on the latest Speed 7 technology, which ensures fast program processing for precise positioning and diverse control tasks. Other features include high channel density thanks to the 30 integrated digital and analog I/O channels, and the system can also be expanded with up to an additional eight modules. Convenient push-in technology helps to minimize downtime and speed up maintenance because the plugs can be mounted and replaced quickly and easily without the need for tools. — Yaskawa Europe GmbH, Eschborn, Germany
