About the FA-M3R
The FA-M3 R Range-free Multi-controller is a high-performance programmable logic controller (PLC) that combines very high processing speeds with stable control features. It has a compact design, can be configured with up to 8192 input/output points, and has numerous advanced modules that can be added on to support a wide variety of applications. With its open design, improved functions, and space-saving characteristics, the FA-M3 R decreases total cost of ownership (TCO).
Minimum scan time of 200μs
Sensor control function (constant scanning)
Fast input to output response time of 10μs
Fast interrupt signal response time of 100μs
Indicates the performance level when running a program that has an average ratio of basic instructions to application instructions. This does not guarantee that all user programs will run at this speed.
All the capabilities of a high-end PLC but at the price of a low- to mid-range PLC.
In the 1000 - 2000 point system range, costs 1/3 to 1/2 less than competing models.
Error log and user log diagnostics
Sampling trace diagnostics
Common I/O module design for all systems, regardless of I/O range
Acronym of remote Operation Maintenance and Engineering proposed by Yokogawa Electric Corporation.
