AC500-eCo: your PLC from ABB

Unique scalable concept, optimal costs...

Change for more!
How can the AC500-eCo contribute
more to your success?

In small industrial applications and mechanical engineering,

small PLC solutions are often used in standalone operation.
These solutions control drives and functional sequences and
ensure that the required efficiency is attained.

Attractive technical features like interrupt I/O, fast counter

and PWM output are available as standard.

ABBs new AC500-eCo PLC range now offers you a small

scale PLC system that can be ideally adapted to meet your
specific needs. Thanks to scalability and a modular platform
concept, you can optimally configure the control system to
suit your applications.

The benefits that make the AC500-eCo so extremely economical,

flexible and user-friendly:
- Complete PLC without limitation
- The entrance for stand-alone solutions
- High functionality integrated with digitals and analogues onboard
- Configurable I/Os for interrupt, fast counter and PWM
- High performance for low budget: 128 kByte user program
- Easy data backup without battery
- High compatibility: free combination of all I/Os
- Cost efficient distributed expansion (Modbus, CS31)
- Easy wiring with pluggable clamps (spring or screw)
- Download of user program via SD card without programming tool
- One programming tool for whole AC500 family, based on CoDeSys
- Up to two serial ports for programming and communication

How can AC500-eCo be tailored
to grow more with your needs?

The new, compact AC500-eCo offers an introduction to the

AC500 PLC range as an optimal cost-performance solution
for small applications. The CPUs have integrated I/Os and can
be configured to accommodate up to seven S500 I/O expan-
sion modules.

The system functionality can be enhanced by simply selecting

Scalable & compatible
a more powerful CPU and/or additional I/O modules.

All modules can be simply mounted on DIN rails or fixed using

screws. System configuration is carried out using the inte-
grated system software (PS501 Control Builder).

The AC500 has a unique architecture which allows either

CPUs and/or I/O modules to be upgraded to more powerful-
components as per application requirements.

AC500 Programming and diagnostic tool

PS501 Control Builder
PS501 Control Builder is the engineering tool for the entire
AC500/S500 PLC family and all field buses available, de-
signed for standardized IEC 61131-3 programming in six
different languages. Other features of this tool are: configura-
tion of the overall system including field buses and interfaces,
extensive diagnostic functions, alarm handling, integrated
visualization, OPC server licence and open software inter-
faces.The Programming Tool PS501 also allows you to select
between different languages such as English, German, Spanish,
French, Italian, Russian and Chinese.
