The Allen-Bradley Pico controller performs simple logic, timing, counting, and real-time clock operations. For enhanced functionality and performance, the Pico GFX controller adds the use of a graphic display while offering advanced programming features like PID control, a high-speed counter, and Boolean sequences. Splitting the difference between a timing relay and a low-end programmable controller, the Pico controllers are ideal for relay replacement applications where simple control applications such as building, HVAC, and parking lot lighting, and applications in which cost is a primary design issue.
The Pico controllers were designed with ease-of-use in mind. All programming and data adjustments can be done via the on-board keypad and display, or with Allen-Bradley Pico Soft and Pico Soft Pro configuration software.
With its multi-function display, the Pico GFX-controller adds more flexibility and capability to the Pico family of Allen-Bradley controllers. It displays text, date, time, and even your own custom bitmaps. These graphics can be used as operator interface, or linked to control operations to provide real-time feedback. This controller offers an attractive and practical design with an IP65 display on the outside of your panel, and the controller and I/O conveniently housed within the panel. The 70 mm graphic display is backlit for readability. Even the keypad buttons are illuminated for use in low light conditions. The controller may also be attached to a DIN rail when the display unit is not required.
