ABB’s AC500-eCo is a range of scalable compact PLCs offering cost effectiveness for modern industrial automation applications where small and flexible PLC solutions often represent the ideal solution.


  • Save money by starting on a small scale - the flexibility of the AC500 platform enables you to scale up as and when needs dictate it.

  • ABB’s AC500-eCo has been designed to integrate seamlessly into the broader AC500 family, offering you the decisive benefit of having a fully scalable and modular system.
  • The AC500-eCo allows for individually customized solutions to be created by using S500 and S500-eCo I/O modules for small applications.
  • The already large amount of onboard I/Os in the AC500-eCo V3 PLCs can be extended using up to three option boards which add either more digital or analog channels or serial interfaces with or without isolation.
  • Therefore it will be easier to meet customers’ and application-specific requirements, reduce the footprint and save money.
  • The Automation Builder engineering suite available for the entire AC500 PLC range will save you time with easy configuration, many libraries and function blocks for the most diverse customer-specific requirements.

Easy handling and flexibility

  • The user program can be downloaded via a memory card without the need for programming tools.
  • CPUs with integrated I/Os for small to large applications are available.
  • Motion I/Os allow you to realize simple point-to-point motion on up to 4 axes.
  • Pre-wiring is possible through the use of pluggable terminal blocks.
  • The modules can be mounted on the DIN rail with an easy-to-use snap-on mechanism. 
  • The AC500-eCo is approved for customer use by accredited certification organizations around the world. This means the entire range can be deployed safely, reliably and globally.
