eControl nano

PLC with 3.5" touch display and CODESYS V3 accor­ding to IEC 61131-3. The con­trol­ler of­fers a large number of inter­faces with ex­treme­ly compact dimensions

Key Features

  • 3.5" touch display
  • 2× CAN interface acc. to ISO 11898
  • Microcontroller Cortex M4 and M0
  • Integrated microSD slot for up to 32 GB
  • Programming in C (HAL is available) or CODESYS V3
  • Modular expansion options
  • Protection class IP67 on the front side


eControl nano – modular, flexible and robust
The smallest control unit of the eControl product fam­ily has a powerful micro­con­troller with 204 MHz for signal proces­sing and a co-processor that handles the inputs/outputs and control processes. Operation is con­ve­nien­tly carried out via a 3.5" touch display. The screwable front mounting frame with integrated circulating seal ensures easy instal­lation and the protection classification IP67 on the front side provides the necessary protection in harsh environments. On the mem­ory side, 1 MB flash memory, a remanent memory with 32 KB and a microSD slot for up to 32 GB of additional memory volume are available.

Numerous interfaces and further inte­grated functions
The fanless system has two CAN interfaces accor­ding to ISO 11898, one of which is gal­va­ni­cally isolated.

In addition, the control system features an Ethernet, RS232 (TTL) and USB interface, as well as four electrically isolated digital inputs and relay out­puts. An additional integrated temperature sen­sor, as well as real-time clock and power fail de­tec­tion complement the control system. Due to the mo­dular principle, optional adaptations and fast implementation of customer-specific require­ments can be easily realized.

Programming in C or CODESYS – including HAL and finished graphics libraries
The controller is programmed in C (a HAL is available) and you benefit from free con­fi­gur­ation, para­met­er­ization and program­ming options. In addition, emWin from Seeger provides you with lib­raries for a graphical user interface (GUI). Opt­ionally, program­ming can also be realized with CODESYS V3.
