The Yokogawa Corporation of America is proud to announce the newest addition to the FA-M3 PLC family, the Vitesse Controller. The FA-M3 has been designed and is best known for its speed, so with this in mind the new series of sequence CPUs has been named Vitesse, which translates to “speed.” The Vitesse controller boasts an on board Ethernet port, USB port and a SD card slot. These features give the FA-M3V unparalleled power for handling large amounts of data on the 32 GB SDHC memory card or over FTP with the client/server functions, according to the manufacturer. Communications with Modbus TCP/IP devices is simple with the built in Ethernet port as well as programming and remote OME (operation, maintenance and engineering). Up to 100 traces can be set, allowing highly accurate analysis of large amounts of operation data.
