It’s Time To Make the Switch!

Idec has announced they will be discontinuing the FC4A-C and FC5A-C CPU’s in 2018. The good news is they made the new series easy to transfer to!

The FC6A features:

  • An all-in-one CPU that is a direct replacement
  • Offers greater functionality and benefits than previous models
  • Options to expand as needed
  • Existing ladder programs for FC4A/FC5A can be automatically converted and downloaded into an FC6A CPU
  • All of this plus the fact the FC6A is the SAME PRICE!

IDEC has this to say about the applications that the FC6A is well equipped for:

Industries particularly well suited to the MicroSmart PLC include oil & gas, chemical, solar, marine, packaging, food & beverage, material handling, utility vehicles, and OEM machinery and process skids. Within these industries, a wide variety of applications are a good fit for the MicroSmart PLC—especially those requiring control of standalone machines, process skids, vehicles and small-scale systems;IDEC Press Release, May 2016.
