With Version 3.0, all CLICK PLC's with Ethernet/WLAN ship from the factory with a default password. The first time a user connects to the PLC, they will be required to input the default password (click).
A new password will have to be configured in a project before it can be uploaded to the PLC.
Not required for Click C0-0*CPU Series PLC's (serial models)
Each time the CLICK programming software is connected to a PLC, the new password will be required to read or write project data to the PLC. Passwords are stored with the software project and can be edited using the programming software.
The only way to clear a password from the PLC is to reset factory defaults. This results in the project being erased from the PLC and the password defaulting back to "click".
The CLICK Programming Software now features an updated Ribbon User Interface, which can replace the Main Menu and Toolbars of the Classic interface. The Ribbon UI is intended to make navigation easier and more efficient.
The new CLICK PLUS CPU's introduce some impressive features to the CLICK PLC line up that will allow you to expand into more demanding applications for control.
Added support for New CLICK High-current relay modules and Input Simulator Module
The new relay modules utilize Form A (SPST) relays for use in high-current circuits up to 10A. The input simullator module suppies 8 manually-operated toggle switch inputs for testing or simulation purposes.
The CLICK Ethernet PLC's now supports up to 8 PID control loops executing every 100ms. The simple PID Configuration tool saves you time
by doing most of the
work for you:
PID Loop configuration of a connected CLICK PLC.
The CLICK Ethernet PLC models now support the EtherNet/IP as an (Adapter Server) device. This allows the CLICK PLC and its I/O to be controlled by an EtherNet/IP Scanner (Client). Take advantage of the low cost CLICK PLC I/O selection for your application needs with fast and easy configuration to your existing network.
The Copy Instruction offers the ability for data manipulation when communicating to other devices. Improvements have been made to this instruction that will increase the ability for users to work with data from both Modbus and EtherNet/IP devices.
High-speed input functions including pulse counting and frequency measurements are made simple with the user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI). Simply choose the desired high-speed function and the interface will guide you through the available features and options.
These new models support "Run time edits" and include one Ethernet port, one RS-232 serial port, and one RS-485 serial port, four discrete input and four discrete output points, up to 6 analog I/O channels, a battery back-up, and calendar/clock.
