New transistor ouput model for SmartAXIS FT1A Touch Controllers

IDEC announced the release of the SmartAXIS series FT1A Touch, an all-in-one touchscreen interface and logic controller, with transistor output functions.

New features including analog output and PID functions make the FT1A Touch suitable for advanced analog and temperature control, allowing users to perform both operator interface and control for wide range of applications.

The following features have been added to the new FT1A Touch:
•The two-point built-in analog inputs now accept 4-20mA in addition to 0-10VDC
•Two built-in analog outputs were added, each configurable as 0-10VDC or 4-20mA
•Can now expand up to two additional analog two-point I/O modules
•RTD/Thermocouple analog input module available
•PID control
•Can be configured as Remote I/O Master, allowing additional FT1As to be used as Remote I/O Slaves for additional discrete I/O

The new FT1A Touch is ideal for use on small industrial equipments such as control panels, food processing machines, peripheral devices for semiconductor related equipment, agricultural equipment, and food service equipment.
