Van Nuys, Calif.— The new VIP-Plus Series of smart terminals has expanded I/O capability, including built-in software drivers for many PLC manufacturers, which makes interfacing with user host systems easier. Developed by Industrial Electronic Engineers, VIP-Plus allows I/O port configuration for PLC "ladder program" passthrough without any disconnect from the terminal. Terminal configuration is done with a PC-based software program that sets up for PLC type, message blocks, alarm display function key selection, time channel settings, and LED indicator modules. Includes a four-line, 20 character, high visibility, vacuum fluorescent display module.
