"The Mini8 controller is an ideal partner to a programmable logic controller. Able to multi-drop on either Serial, Fieldbus or Ethernet communications. It offers a cost-effective alternative to performing analogue measurement or loop control in a PLC." The Mini8 Controller, a very competitive and compact data acquisition device, offers high performance control usually only found in Eurotherm panel mount PID controllers.

Its modular design enables its I/O and feature set to be selected to meet a wide range of applications from simple to complex.

The ideal partner to a programmable logic controller (PLC) is the Mini8 controller. It can multi-drop on either serial, Ethernet or Fieldbus communications and it offers a real, cost-effective alternative to performing loop control or analog measurement in a PLC.

By implementing these functions in the Mini8 controller hardware cost is reduced, relieving the PLC of the burden of performing analog functions - often allowing a lower specification processor to be used.

The feature set of the Mini8 controller includes graphical wiring, high performance PID control, and set-point programming functions together with logic, math and timing function blocks.

When used in a data acquisition installation the high density analog I/O can be combined with paperless graphic recorder products, like the Nanodac to provide unsurpassed local and network access to your process.
