Omron CP1L Micro PLC Control

A standard Package Type PLC (All in One Control System)

Complete with a standard feature USB port, the Omron CP1L PLC’s include CPU units for applications with as few as 10 points. From simple sequence control or pulse I/O and a serial port, the CP1L PLCs give users an economical choice from among 10, 14, 20, 30, 40 and 60 point CPU units. The Omron CP1L PLC offers a wide variety of built in functions, expanding application capabilities and shortening design times required for a growing number of increasingly complex machine control needs.

With the introduction of the Omron CP1L, users can enjoy the benefits of a smart platform technology even in the basic ranges, at an affordable cost.

The Omron CP1L supports mathematical and PID instructions whereby the PLC can be used from simple to complex applications. The Omron CP1L share the same common architecture with other ranges of PLC’s which means that programs written can be migrated over without any modifications.

Main Features:

  • 4 high-speed inputs and 2 *high-speed pulse outputs (*Transistor Models Only)
  • AC or DC supply and 10, 14, 20, 30, 40 & 60 I/O
  • Built-in USB port.
  • Expandable up to 180 points

Network Capabilities with Serial Communications

With the Omron CP1L, Data sharing between PLCs can be achieved using the serial PLC link by connecting in series with RS 485/RS 422 configurations. Communication with other devices such as Inverters and Analog Meter can also be done as seen in the diagram.

The Omron CP1L provides users with the option of three programming languages: Function Blocks, Ladder Diagram and Structure Text which helps reduce development and troubleshooting times.

The Omron CP1L series provides built in USB connections for easier communication. Suitable for users without serial communication ports on their laptops.

Easy Maintenance and Startup Adjustments with LCD Displays and Settings

Attach an LCD Option Board to the CPU Unit to easily monitor or change data values in the CP1L PLC to visually check error status.

Motion Control with Precise Accuracy

Pulse Output

The CP1L series comes with two-axis pulse output control at 100khz (max). The CP1L supports a full range of functions for motion control such as Origin Search Function, Trapezoidal Acceleration and Deceleration etc.

High-speed Counter

A maximum of the four-axis counter of Single phase inputs are supported. Two-axis for Differential phase input. In additional, interrupt inputs are also provided.

ModBus RTU

The Omron CP1L with the optional Serial communication port, support Modbus-RTU communication without any programming.


Increased Numbers of I/Os and Memory Capacities

With a wide range of selections for the Omron CP1L, Users can choose the PLC which suits their application. (Expansion options are also available for different models.)


Network Capabilities with Serial Communications

Data sharing between CP1L PLCs can be achieved using a serial PLC link by connecting in series with RS 485/RS 422 configurations. Communication with other devices such as Inverters and Analogue Meters can also be done.

Optional Boards

Two types of communications are available.
Either two RS-232C ports , two RS-422A/485 ports or two Ethernet ports can be used.

    I want to ask. I ‘ m making scada program using cp1l communication rspad 485. I ‘ m having trouble to communicate between plc master and 2 plc slave. Plc master and 1 slave using cp1l and 1 slave another using cj1m. What should i do? any ideas?
    thanks before

    • more-control says:

      Hi Dinha,
      Which scada are you using?
      which PLC is the master and which is the slave? Are you trying to comunicate between PLC’s and also to the SCADA or just to the SCADA? Can you send a copy of the settings file for each PLC
