Introducing the XLe and XLt Operator Control Station (OCS)
, an "all-in-one" controller, small enough to fit in the palm of your hand (only 3.75" square). These are more than just a PLC, they include a Graphical Operator Interface (HMI), built-in I/O, networking and removable mass data storage. OCS is a robust, reliable control product that combines a traditional controller (programmed with ladder logic) with an operator interface, I/O and networking into an integrated, all-in-one unit using a single industry-recognized software package called CscapeTM
There are three basic model types to choose from in the OCS line:
--- The HE-XE series has a 128x64 graphical display and a 20-key keypad with 10 function keys and four "soft keys" which can be programmed differently for every user screen.
--- The HE-XT series features a 160x128 touchscreen graphical display with 4 function keys.
--- The HE-XL series has a 320x240 TFT color touchscreen with 5 function keys. ***New!*** 6" Color Touchscreens: 320x240 pixels, DIN Rail mount or Panel mount

The XLe is the first industrial product to include support for the latest standard in removable mass storage. To date, this dime-sized memory is only found on video-enabled cellular phones and is available in densities ranging from 128 MB to 2 GB. This is ideal for storing process data, machine recipes, and application files. Users can easily update the application program through this memory device– allowing logic and screen updates to be made in a single step with transportable media. Built-in I/O and Networking
The four available XLe and XLt models with built-in I/O include digital, analog and high speed I/O. For machine control, the high speed I/O can provide totalizing, frequency measurement, PWM generation and pulse outputs. The available universal analog I/O is ideal for process control applications with high-resolution inputs which can be configured for thermocouple, RTD, 4 to 20 mA, ±100 mV, and 0 to 10V signals. The XLe and XLt also have field installable communications options. An internal 10/100 MB Ethernet card makes machine data and XLe programming accessible at a plant-wide or world-wide basis. In addition, the XL Series is available with an internal 57.6k telephone modem card. While Ethernet and modem are optional, dual RS232/RS485 serial ports and an integrated CAN-based network are standard. Connectivity I/O Expansion:
XL Series I/O expansion is not limited to its built-in I/O.
Smartstix I/O (HE559 series) and Universal Remote I/O (HE359 series) is high-speed and can be local
or highly distributed. Add additional analog I/O (including thermocouples and RTDs) and digital I/O,
as well as relay outputs. HE559_series Smartstix™ Terminal Block Style Analog and Digital I/O Expansion Models HE359 Universal Remote I/O Modules: Digital, Analog, Thermocouple, RTD Architecture:
The XL Series supports CsCAN high-speed networking as standard,
and Ethernet networking as a field-installable option. Single-point-of-connect
allows seamless communication between the computer and any controller.
The HE-XE103 model PLC provides high-speed pulse outputs which can be used to drive any of Omega's step & direction stepper drives. The Cscape ladder logic software has built-in step motor functions which make programming your motion control application easy. The STM_Series STM23S-2AN is an integrated stepper drive + stepper motor which accepts pulses from a PLC. Add the HE-XCK USB programming cable and PS_Series OMPS150A24 power supply for a complete motion-control system that costs less than $1200. HE-X_Series General-Purpose Signal Conditioners for OCS Models Applications
As a compact, powerful controller the XL series can be used in literally thousands of applications. From OEM machine control to machine monitoring in a plant environment, the XL series can be instrumental in keeping you or your customer’s automation activities running smoothly. Future expansion is not a concern, because the XL Series is part of the wide ranging OCS product line, programmable throughout with a single software package Cscape™. The XL series is designed with an attractive, generic look so it will fit in with most panel or console designs. Temperature Control:
With built-in RTD and thermocouple available, along with auto-tune PID, the XL series can perform
advanced temperature control and much more on any machine. Packaging:
The XL series compact size, affordable price and fast response make it
a natural for packaging machinery of all types. Agriculture:
A small rugged package, 12 Vdc compatibility, and removable mass storage
are ideal for the agricultural environment. Water Treatment:
The XL series offers the perfect I/O mix, size and communications capability
for pump control, tank monitoring and remote telemetry in general. Please note: All of the PLCs require the Cscape software (free download), a 12-24 VDC power supply, and HE500CBL300 programming cable (RS232). A USB programming cable is also available (HE-XCK). Programming cable is also included in HE-CPK software package.
