NEW PLC AT DAIRY FARM

Recommended Posts

A V570 is a good choice for a system this size, as it offers a local 5.7" color touchscreen and has a built-in CANbus port which you will probably need for the number of I/O you have. You can also look at the V1040 or the V1210 if you want a larger screen. You can use the second COM port to set it up as a Modbus slave for an external HMI.

I echo Joes suggestions.

In addtion, having been involved with

the same, I recommend sealing everything very well in enclosures.

I would

go Nema4X or IP equivalent on everything. The fumes from the cows can get

very corrosive to electronics. :blink:

Thank you all for your tips.

For sure the I/O will be placed inside an existing board. What about the PLC/PANEL ? I would like to place it "cut-out" at the same board as I/O.

What do you think?

thanks

Oh.. Cara... be careful what you post about your past on the forum. This just screams for one of my photo-shopping projects :lol: .

AZ - the front of the V570 will be fine in a corrosive environment as long as you use the gasket. I'd be more worried about getting cow poop all over the touchscreen. If this may be a problem, then you want to look at the V560 which has both a touchscreen and a full keypad with function keys. You build your screens so that the most of the common operations such as screen changing and data entry are tied to the function buttons.
