RS is the exclusive global distributor for the STG-800 mini-PLC range, which provides hardware-oriented microcontroller programming with low current consumption in a small form factor. The units deliver a best-fit solution for a whole range of smaller applications that simply do not require overly powerful PLCs. They are suited to use in a wide range of applications, including industrial and building automation, automotive and maritime technology, technical education/university, and white goods.
Barth is now providing a free-of-charge software patch ( https://www.barth-elektronik.c
The STG-800 offers five digital inputs, three configurable for 0 to 30 VDC analogue inputs with a 12-bit ADC, one as a 25kHz-input event counter, one as a 40µs-input pulse and frequency counter, five solid-state power outputs (up to 1.5 A), four high side, and one low side that can also support a 16-bit 1Hz to 25kHz power PWM output. The STG-810 model adds an IrDA (Infrared) port for communication with the PG-65 parameter programmer. The STG-820 model offers the same as the STG-810, but has a 0-5V analogue output instead of PWM. All three PLCs come with connectors and are complemented by open-source templates, the miCon-L software suite and manuals and sample programs, which can all be downloaded.
The Barth STG-800 mini-PLC range is shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia regions.
