New AS300 compact non-backplane mid-range PLC

The Delta AS300 series compact non-backplane mid-range PLC is a new high-performance multi-purpose controller for automated equipment. Delta's self-developed 32-bit SoC (System on Chip) CPUs offer an enhanced execution speed (40k steps/ms) and support a maximum of up to 32 extension modules. The series supports up to 1024 inputs/outputs. Response time is 1ms when LD instruction time is 25ns and MOV instruction time is 0.15us. These attractively priced PLCs are suitable for most automation applications, enabling easy and advanced programming for sectors such as electronics manufacturing, labelling, food packaging and textile machines.

Delta's AS300 series provides accurate positioning control for a maximum of eight axes via a CANopen motion network and a maximum of six axes via pulse control (200kHz). The AS Series supports multiple programming languages in the same project (Structured Text, CFC, SFC and ladder). The advanced yet simple ISPSoft V3.0 editing software delivers fast hardware and network configuration with built-in function blocks for different industries. It also provides multi-layer password protection for enhanced system security. Supporting EtherNet/IP and various fieldbuses for industrial applications, the AS Series controller is equipped with CANopen and EtherNet/IP network communication for high-speed data transmission.

The AS300 series supports star and linear network topologies for fast expansion and management on production lines. It is compatible with all IT networks and can be combined with Delta's IES system to construct IoT automation applications and Industry 4.0 upgrades. The AS series can be extended to up to 32 modules.

Non-backplane architecture

Delta says its patented non-backplane assembly with a robust slot and clip interlocking design offers a more flexible configuration and simple installation process, with convenient earth protection. The new PLC features screwless and time-saving installation: operators just have to press the clip rings and push the module to the desired position until a 'click' is heard, signifying that installation is complete. Configuration changes are as easy as possible thanks to fast disassembly: operators simply release the clip ring and remove the module from the front without moving adjacent modules.

The space-saving design enables easy installation in control panels, while the simple design and dark grey exterior of the AS series help resist stains and dirt in harsh industrial environments. With recyclable and lead-free material, it is compliant with international environmental requirements for industrial products.
