Octo24 Ethernet Conveyor PLC (8 In/8 Out)


The Octo24 Ethernet Programmable Controller provides networked 24volts Digital I/O for MDR Powered Roller Conveyor systems, as well as general purpose Fast Local/Remote Machine I/O. These Devices are fully programmable for any type of control application, and can act as a programmable master device, or a slaved network I/O device. The modules communicate over Ethernet to master or peer devices using Ethernet/IP, Modbus/TCP, and Profinet. For MDR conveyor systems, interlocking messaging bits e.g., upstream, downstream, merge, divert, etc are handled by the firmware for simplified Ladder Logic Programming.

Key Features

  • IP67 Water proof, Sealed Connectors.
  • 8 Digital 24V outputs, up to 0.5Amp per output.
  • 8 Digital 24V opto-isolated inputs.
  • Independent Power supply for the outputs so Estop does not turn off the CPU
  • Programming over Ethernet Network.
  • Free ladder logic programming software - SuperLogic
  • Status LEDs for inputs, outputs, and Network
  • Ethernet/IP, Modbus/TCP, Profinet Protocols.
  • No PC-Host required for standalone operation
  • Rotary DIP Switches for Network ID
  • Average Scan time of 25 microsecond per rung.

The Octo24 cards are programmble using Ladder Logic. In addition, these cards can act as remote I/O for master PLCs or PC software. By selecting Remote-I/O checkbox in configuration, the card acts on I/O commands received from the master PLC, and does not execute any local ladder program.

These cards are well suited for distributed I/O system. Each card can have its own ladder logic program for I/O control, and can talk over ethernet to exchange I/O messages.

For centralized I/O, one card can act as master controller and controls up to 8 other slave Octo24 cards, which act as remote-i/o. The Remote-I/O cards inputs and outputs become local I/O on master controller. This method allows easy debugging and use only one ladder logic program for the whole system.
