Written by

Schneider is a French PLC manufacturer with the top quality in the world. Up to now, there are popular PLC Schneider lines known to the market: Zelio Logic (Smart relays), Twido, Modicon M171 / M172, Modicon M221, Modicon M238, Modicon M251, Modicon M258, Modicon MC80, Modicon TSX Micro, Preventa XPS MF / MC.

Schneider Zelio Logic

Zelio Logic is a set of compact smart relays: classified into 3 single block types with 10, 12 or 20 I / O with or without screens and buttons. 10 or 26 I / O can be extended by using:

+ Module expansion via Modbus or Ethernet

+ Separate expansion module with 6, 10 or 14 DI / DO and 4 AI / AO

Schneider Twido Series

Twido Series is divided into 3 basic categories (Compact, Modular and Extreme) and multiple I / Os types, Twido configured with TwidoSuite software provides simple and edgy solutions for all your difficult situations.
