CC18 programmable electronic controllers

The SPLat CC18 may look a bit like a twee hobby module, but it is far from being one. This is a professional grade, industrial strength, programmable logic controller board, intended for Real World jobs. It has Real World outputs that can drive solenoid valves, contactors and small stepper motors directly, at up to 500mA at 24VDC. It has Real World 24V inputs, designed to be compatible with standard industrial NPN sensors. What's more, it has Real World multitasking, floating point arithmetic, ModBus communications and analog inputs. It can be expanded using our range of industrial strength expansion boards, with capacities up to 20A @240VAC. If you need advanced sensor or peripheral functions, we have a whole range of add-ons, with functions including pH/ORP measurement, non-contact temperature measurement, and relative humidity (RH sensor).

The only thing twee about this is the price and its credit card sized form factor.

The CC18 has 16 digital I/O points, (expandable to 80 and beyond). Each one can be used as an input or an output. It has 2 analog inputs.

CC16BB
CCBB
This Breakout Board is designed specially to simplify the development process using the CC18. It provides convenient screw terminal connections for power and all digital I/O, plus indicator LEDs to monitor outputs and DIP switches for activating inputs. With the CC16BB you can get your program 90% tested without ever having to connect it to any external devices. Ships with the mounting hardware pictured, which acts as feet for the combined assembly to sit on your work bench. The CC16BB can be unplugged from the CC16 without undoing any screws. Note this does not connect the CC18 analog inputs.

CC16TB
CC16TB
The CC16 Terminal Board is designed for production use where it is more convenient to have screw terminals than the regular crimped friction lock connectors used on the CC18 itself. It provides convenient screw terminal connections for power and all digital I/O, plus a pair of secondary power terminals that have reverse polarity protection for anything connected "downstream". Comes with mounting hardware to hold the two boards permanently together, including threaded metal standoffs for fixing the combined assembly to a base plate (as pictured). Note this does not connect the CC18 analog inputs.

TL485
TL485
The TL485 is an RS485 adaptor designed specifically for the CC18/16's communication (programming) port. This port is not RS232, but CMOS/TTL levels. The TL485 converts it to 2-wire (half duplex) RS485. A special feature of the TL485 is that it provides automatic switching between transmit and received modes, by sensing when the CC16 starts transmitting. With this you can have up to 32 separate devices exchanging ModBus data at 9600BPS.

X485
This adaptor sits piggy back on the CC family controller and converts its Xwire port to an RS485 interface. Xwire protocol over RS485 will allow cable runs of up to 1km (with suitable cable and grounding precautions) and up to 32 devices.
Note: This is specific to CC controllers. For the same function for other controllers see XP485 on the general accessories page.
