PC1600 Series Programmable Controllers | Tough, Smart & Very Flexible

Supplier: OEM Technology Solutions

Tough, smart and very, very flexible, these programmable controllers offer great functionality for industrial applications.


OEM Technology Solutions, designers and providers of hardened monitoring, automation, control and information systems are already recognised globally for their “tough and smart” products - but now there comes a new release that is not only tough and smart, but very, very flexible.

Introducing the PC1600 Series of Programmable Controllers:  Tough, smart and very, very flexible, these programmable controllers offer great functionality for industrial applications. The PC1600 Series has an extensive range of I/O, communication ports, data storage and data manipulation capabilities and has been designed to operate in tough industrial environments such as:

  • Remote environmental monitoring
  • SCADA systems
  • Energy management and control
  • Data and Event logging
  • Distributed control systems
  • Transportation control and monitoring

Advanced programmable controllers, the PC1600 Series can be programmed in any of the IEC61131-3 languages and also incorporates 32 MB FLASH memory for data and event logging.
The PC1600 Series of programmable controllers are available as:

  • PC1600 – Board only
  • PC1610 – Enclosed version (in anodised aluminium enclosure)
  • PC1620 – Enclosed version with LCD

The PC1600 Series hardware features include Real Time Clock, battery packed RAM, 16 x Digital Inputs, 6 x 12 bit A/D inputs, 3 x Universal Inputs (configurable as digital or analogue inputs), 18 x FET Digital Outputs, Ethernet (10/100 Mbps), R232 and RS485 serial communications ports, In addition, the user can easily program the inbuilt 4 line x 20 character Liquid Crystal Display (PC1620 Model only) and 7 key keypad.
The inbuilt software features include the ability for users to FTP configuration files to the PC1600 Series, and retrieve time and date stamped data log and event log files via FTP. There are standard function blocks available to generate these logs and the PC1600 Series also support the Modbus Master and Slave protocol (both TCP and Serial). This allows the PC1600 Series to connect to SCADA and HMI packages, and to interrogate smart devices such as Energy Meters and remote I/O modules.
Managing Director of OEM Technology Solutions, Richard Gobee says: “Spawned from our popular PC1 Series of Programmable Controllers, the PC1600 Series gives clients much more flexibility to tailor the controllers to their specific needs. It is rail hardened and meets rail compliance standards but can be utilised across a myriad of applications and industries. The unit has an operational temperature range of -20C to +70?C, so it is designed to work in environments where other PLC products cannot be used”.

“The PC1600 Series is proudly Australian designed and made and I am pleased to say it is already being used on cutting edge projects across a myriad of industry sectors in Australia, Europe and Asia,” says Gobee.

The PC1600 Series of programmable controllers are now available now. They also have an option for an industrial 3G cellular modem, making them perfect for remote monitoring, control and data logging.
