The 140CPU65150 is a Unity processor in Schneider Electric’s Modicon Quantum series. It is one of the newer models in the series of processor modules. It joins together the standard functions of the PLC and the diagnostic possibilities of a web server. It communicates using an RJ-45 connection. The module is in a double-width standard Quantum housing which requires two sequential slots in a Quantum rack. Because its web server functions are diagnostic only, software must be used to configure its services.
It has a clock frequency of 166 Mhz and has two local racks. It has 63 distributed I/O stations, 1 rack, and 3 distributed networks. It has 8000 discrete inputs and outputs of discrete in a distributed network, and 31744 discrete inputs and inputs in a remote system. As far as application specific I/O, it can be used for time stamping, as a counter, for high-speed interrupt inputs, and as a serial link.
There are 6 optional modules that can be used with the 140CPU65150. These include, Ethernet, Modbus, Modbus Plus, Profibus DP, and Sy/Max. In a local AS interface, the module has an unlimited maximum number of connections. It also has 4 integrated connection types – Ethernet TCP/IP, Modbus, Modbus Plus, and USB. It has an expandable 8 MB of file storage, 7168 kB or expandable programming, and 768 kB of RAM. The 140CPU65150 uses a key switch memory port for on/off functionality.
The 140CPU65150 has a data rate of 10/100 Mbps. For a medium, a user should used a shielded twisted pair cable. The module has a number of services, including standard web service, Modbus TCP messaging, I/O scanning services, global data, FDR client, SNMP management, and SMTP services (email). It is compatible only with the Unity Pro software.
