Modicon M171/M172 logic controllers: best-in-class for scalability and energy efficiency.
The Modicon M171/M172 logic controllers are available in 3 controller types:
- The Modicon M171 optimized logic controller for simple and compact machines is the smallest programmable controller on the market. The Modicon M171 optimized unit can also be flush mounted and requires minimal installation effort, while offering tremendous versatility.
- The Modicon M171 performance logic controller for complex and BMS-connectable machines. This controller provides more powerful memory, I/Os, connectivity and an embedded webserver.
- The Modicon M172 performance logic controller for large and connected machines. For more performance, connectivity and scalabity.
Everything you need is embedded:
> Wide choice of digital or analog I/Os, software configurable
> Communication protocols: Modbus SL, Modbus TCP, BACnet MS/TP, BACnet/IP, CAN, Profibus, ASCII, LonWorks
> The embedded WebVisu function lets you read and write data from the equipment and make corresponding adjustments to its operation from any location
> With or without display and buttons, or flush-mounted
> Power supply: 12 V DC or 24V AC/DC or 48V DC or 100 to 240 V AC
> Simplicity and performance
Thanks to a high degree of flexibility, installing additional modules is very easy - while keeping everything in a single configuration:
> Remote displays
> Expansion modules
> Wall thermostat
> Electronic expansion valve driver
> Wide range of humidity and temperature probes
> Communication plug-in for adding a communication port
Reduced time to market
The Modicon M171/M172-based solutions are faster and easier to deploy thanks to SoMachine HVAC 2.0, Schneider Electric’s single platform for programming, visualization, and commissioning. SoMachine HVAC 2.0 offers intuitive, ready-to-use application function blocks (AFB). When implemented together with the Tested, Validated, and Documented Architectures (TVDAs) from Schneider Electric, it greatly reduces design time.
