VB-2000, Versatile Base Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)

The VB-2000 is an open-board, extended temperature, versatile programmble logic controller (PLC) that is ideally suited for today's complex control needs.

The VB-2000 provides powerful features including 12 Sinking or Sourcing Digital Inputs (8-32VDC ), 8 Solid-State / PWM Sourcing Outputs rated up to 2 amps, 7 12-bit Analog Inputs that are field configurable for 0-20mADC, 0-5VDC or 0-10VDC, 1 10-bit Analog Output rated 4-20mA or 0-10VDC, 3 High Speed Counter Inputs up to 100KHz (field selectable PNP or NPN), 1 CAN communications port for J1939, NMEA 2000 or OptiCAN networking, 1 RS485 Port, 1 RS232 Port and supports optional HMI products. The VB-2000 will operate over an extended temperature range (-40 degrees C to +80 degrees C) and is din rail mounted. The VB-2000 supports Modbus Master, Modbus Slave and Structured Text which allows for custom functions and function blocks including custom serial port drivers.

The VB-2000's micro SD card socket may be used for software updates and data logging.

The Versatile Base (VB-2000) features can be extended using VB2X expansion boards. These expanders provide additional features including Thermocouple Inputs and additional Outputs. Additionally, the VB-2000 can be expanded using VB-2000 Series VersaCloud M2M Expansion Boards. The VersaCloud M2M expansion boards provide additional communications options including cellular modem and GPS. When the VB-2000 is used with VersaCloud M2M Portals*, the VB-2000 provides remote monitoring, reporting and control. These expanders stack-mount to the VB-2000, keeping it's footprint to a minimum. The VB-2000 is VersaCloud M2M enabled when one of the VB-2000 Series VersaCloud M2M Expansion Boards are installed.

The VB-2000, versatile base programmable logic controller / PLC can also be categorized as a machine controller, hydraulic PLC, programmable automation controller (PAC), J1939 controller, modbus controller, extended temperature controller, and plug-in HMI.

Additionally, the VB-2000 supports the VBDSP-XX HMI assembly; which is an open-board HMI with LCD Display and Keypad matrix that will operate over the full extended temperature range.The VB-2000 Programs using EZ LADDER® Toolkit. The VBDSP-XX HMI can be mounted through panel and sealed by an overlay (generic or custom) or it may be mounted with an optional faceplate kit. Generic overlays and faceplate kits are available for the VB-2000 Series HMI (VBDSP).

* VersaCloud M2M Connectivity requires VersaCloud M2M Portal. Additional fees apply. See VersaCloud M2M for details.
