Programmable controllers

The Panasonic product portfolio comprises both low-cost compact programmable controllers with little space requirement which are suitable for many basic tasks and high-end PLCs like the flagship FP7.

A multitude of useful functions has been successfully integrated into the compact PLCs so that they offer many of the advantages of a modular high-end PLC such as analog control, network communication, and positioning control. All Panasonic PLCs offer an outstanding price-performance ratio.

Thanks to the innovative programming software Control FPWIN Pro, it takes minimal effort to achieve a maximum result with the programmable controllers. For example, the programming software provides many ready-made functions and function blocks. This allows you to use our know-how for your programs, saving you a lot of time for programming and debugging.

Like all other Panasonic products, programmable controllers are subjected to much more severe conditions than they will ever encounter in actual operation to ensure a long service life in your application.

Panasonic not only offers a comprehensive PLC product range but also takes pride in providing top-notch service. For a customer-oriented company certified according to ISO 9001, such commitment is self-evident. Highly trained application engineers put together systems tailored to our customers' needs.
