21 August 2023

NEW FROM Motion Control Products Ltd (MCP), the Kinco MK Series all-in-one HMI-PLC offers connectivity and performance.

Building on the success of the Kinco HP series, the MK series is reported to take industrial automation to new heights with its cutting-edge features and advanced technology platform. With a high-performance CPU and the innovative DTools software, the MK series is said to set a new standard in functionality and user experience.

The Kinco MK Series comes equipped with built-in Internet of Things (M-IoT) functionality, empowering users with seamless remote operation and maintenance capabilities. It enables programme upload and download, pass-through PLC communication via the network, VNC remote monitoring, and efficient equipment management, bringing the possibility of numerous applications.

The HMI-PLC hybrid MK Series now incorporates an industrial CPU with 700MHz main frequency, along with 128MB Flash + 64MB DDR2 large capacity storage. Coupled with the new generation touch screen DTools programming software, the MK Series delivers high levels of performance and responsiveness, meeting the demands of complex industrial processes.

The MK Series PLC boasts exceptional flexibility with support for a wide array of extension modules. Users can effortlessly extend the system with up to 8 KS extension modules, ensuring cost-effective and scalable solutions that cater to diverse application needs.

With four high-speed pulse counters at user’s disposal, data can be accurately measured and processed with ease. Each high-speed counter can handle up to 32 PV values and supports 32 "CV=PV" interrupts, providing unparalleled versatility. The high-speed counter supports various modes, including single-phase, dual-phase (Up/Down), and AB phase (1-fold and 4-fold frequency), with a maximum counting frequency of 50KHz. Its user-friendly HSC configuration wizard makes setup a breeze.

The MK Series is equipped with four high-speed pulse outputs, capable of handling both PTO (pulse string) and PWM (pulse width modulation) output signals. Additional software features include PLS (PWM or PTO), positioning control command group, PFLO_F (follow instruction), and more, enabling seamless implementation of simple motion control applications.

To facilitate efficient data exchange, the PLC part includes two RS485 interfaces, PORT1 and PORT2, each supporting communication rates of up to 115.2kbps. PORT1 caters to Kinco programming protocols, Modbus RTU master and slave stations, and free serial protocol. On the other hand, PORT2 supports Modbus RTU master and slave stations and free serial protocol, ensuring seamless integration into your existing systems.

The Kinco MK Series All-in-One HMI-PLC redefines automation with its unparalleled connectivity, performance, and versatility, claims MCP. It can seamlessly control and monitor the industrial processes through the M-IoT function, experience the power of an industrial CPU and advanced software platform, and extend the system with ease using a wide range of extension modules.
