MPU application kit for industrial PLCs introduced


Rabbit Semiconductor has just released the BL2500 PLC (programmablelogic controller) Application Kit for Automation and Control Usersdeveloping applications based on its low cost Rabbit 3000microprocessor.

It uses ISaGRAF industrial programming software package and supportsall of the familiar industrial programming environments listed in the IEC61131-3 standard.

The Rabbit Embedded PLC Application kit includes ISaGRAF softwareand theRabbit BL2500 single board computer, as well as sample applicationprograms.

TheISaGRAF v3.5 workbench is an industrial Soft Logicprogramming system, supporting six different programming languages. Thekit will allow industrial users of PLC's to use their language ofchoice and deploy Rabbit-based microprocessor designs to replacetraditional PLC systems.

ISaGRAF is fully compliant with the programming languages specifiedin the IEC61131-3 standard, recognized worldwide as the standard for PLCsystems. These languages include Sequential Function Chart (SFC),Function Block Diagram (FBD), Ladder Diagram (LD), Instruction List(IL), and Structured Text (ST).

Based on the Rabbit 3000 microprocessor, the BL2500 incorporates apowerful feature set of flash memory, digital I/O, analog I/O, multipleserial ports and 10/100 Ethernet. All of these features are  ona compact board size of 100mm x 100mm and easily mountable on astandard100mm DIN rail tray.

The Embedded PLC Application Kit includes all of the hardware andsoftwarerequired to develop a Rabbit-based PLC replacement system. The EmbeddedPLC Application Kit is available now for for $599.
