Easily Expandable with Easy-to-use Ladder Builder Software
The KV-10 (with 10 I/Os) is about the same size as three general-purpose relays. The KV-80 (with 80 I/Os) is as small as a VHS videotape. KV series PLCs require little space on a control panel.
With the KV series up to 4 expansion units can be added. Using these PLCs, it's easy to expand the number of I/Os. To achieve the input/output ratio that suits your needs, KV-16E or KV-8E expansion units can be added in any combination of 3 to the KV-80 or KV-40. Any combination of 4 expansions units can be added to the other models.
The KV-DA4 (D/A converter) and KV-AD4 (A/D converter) expansion units with 4 channel I/O are also available.
New Ladder Builder support software enables you to debug your program on a PC screen without connecting to a PLC or other device.
The interrupt input instruction receives pulse signals as short as
25µs regardless of the program cycle time, thus allowing real
The KV series also provides two 10 kHz counters that are suitable for counting pulses with a high frequency.
Useful during startup, the analog timer trimmer enables you to adjust the values for timers and counters, in real time, based on actual operating conditions, with a range from 0 to 249. There are 2 analog timers in the KV-80, KV-40, and KV-24, and 1 in the KV-16 and KV-10.
The 20 kHz clock pulse output enables positioning at varying speeds. The KV series is useful as a pulse generator for stepping motors. (The KV-10/16/24/40 has a maximum clock frequency of 2 kHz.)
• Built-in 1 ms timer
• Memory capacity of up to 3000 steps (500 steps: KV-10/16)
• Serial communication function
• Relay replacement possible. (KV-80R, KV-16EYR)
• Programs are stored in EEPROM, eliminating the need for backup battery.
