The 1761-L32BWA is a Programmable controller manufactured by Allen Bradley, a division of Rockwell Automation. The 1761-L32BWA is classified under the MicroLogix 1000 series and supports configuration as either sinking or sourcing. The 1761-L32BWA also supports mounting using the DIN rail with an alternative for mounting screws. The 1761-L32BWA features up to 20 input points and has 12 relay output points built with an AC Power Supply. The Allen Bradley programmable controller features a small and economic design. The unit measures only 7.87 x 2.87 x 3.15 inches and comes with several benefits to the user. For connection to the peer-to-peer network, the 1761-L32BWA supports an RS-232 port. This ensures that the 1761-L32BWA can be quickly installed and deployed for use within a short period of time.
The 1761-L32BWA is an affordable controller small enough to fit into tight spaces and is a powerful module with the ability to accommodate several application types. The 1761-L32BWA has the ability to expand as the user’s needs continue to change. It helps the user to achieve high-level control in different applications. The MicroLogix 1000 controllers come with different advantages. These controllers feature a preconfigured 1KB program with data memory that eases the configuration process. The unit also supports fast processing, allowing for a typical throughput time of about 1.5 milliseconds for the 5000-instruction programs. The 1761-L32BWA features a built-in EEPROM memory that has the ability to retain all of the user’s ladder logic and data in case the controller loses power or eliminates the need for a battery backup or a separate memory module. Through the RS-232 communication channel that is provided on the module, the 1761-L32BWA supports simple connectivity to a PC. This allows the user to perform program uploading and downloading and supports monitoring with multiple protocols.
