We will now look at the system hardware of the Omron CP1H controller. The Omron CP1 series of programmable logic controllers consists of three different units. CP1E is the cost-effective unit, CP1L is the high-performing controller that can come with embedded Ethernet and the Omron CP1H is the position control and comprehensive programmable logic controller.
We will be looking a the Omron CP1H for this series, but a majority of the information can be applied to the CP1E and the CP1L controllers as well.
Let’s start by looking at the Omron CP1H hardware.
The CP1 series is designed with the same basic architecture as the CS and CJ Series. The special I/O units and CPU bus units of the CJ series can then be used. Always use CPM1A expansion units and CPM1A expansion I/O units when expanding the I/O capacity. The following diagram indicates the position of the unit with respect to the CJ and CS series hardware.
