AC 800PEC high performance controller
High-performance applications with extremely fast control algorithms – cycle-times that range from 100 microseconds for fast control loops to seconds for long-term operational transients – require specialized control devices.
That is why we have designed the AC 800PEC, extending the capabilities of ABB’s well-known Control IT automation technology to handle the very high-speed algorithms of processes such as power electronics applications. We’ve even gone a step further: now, a single processor unit combines these high-speed controls with the low-speed process control tasks usually carried out by separate PLC units.
The AC 800PEC controller is configured and programmed using Control Builder M, ABB’s well-established programming tool complying with IEC 61131-3, and MATLAB®/ Simulink® with Real-Time Workshop®.
Ethernet is used as preferred medium for configuration and communication to upper control. The AC 800PEC interfaces with ABB’s I/O systems via the optical S800 Modulebus and with ABB’s communication modules via Communication Expansion Bus (CEX). It also supports 3rd party AnyBus-S fieldbus modules.
