The new PLC generation


Pixsys PLC series PL500/PLE500 is relying on a modular and flexible concept. CPU PL500 is the control unit and connectivity node, basing on ARM CORTEX A8 -1 GHz microprocessor and featuring extensive range of serial ports and protocols: RS485, RS232 (Modbus RTU), Ethernet (Modbus TCP/IP), CanOpen. 

Multiple combinations of analogue-digital I/O are available on PLE500 modules. Communication among CPU and I/O modules is basing on a real-time internal Bus on DIN-rail. 

Flagship of Pixsys PLC range are the PID modules with programmable analogue input, currently available as single loop but already planned in additional versions with multiple loops. 

Development environment LogicLab, compliant with IEC 61131 standards, is now the same for this PLC series as well as for Pixsys HMI and Panel PC, thus ensuring scalability of applications, optimal sinergy among different series and connectivity with third-party hardware thanks to wide list of drivers already included.

The extensive library of Pixsys devices allows their straightforward and easy integration into applications.  

User friendly, multimedia support and traceability

For the complete range of Pixsys products we provide technical support for installation, programming and operation via our online forum and via Skype.

Programming tutorial videos are available on our youtube channel.

As for the entire range of PIXSYS products, thanks to the QR code the traceability of the product is guaranteed for its entire life cycle; the information and documentation online can be also be accessed by reading the QR CODE that directs your mobile device to the product's technical specifications and verifies its warranty conditions.
