The FX-Series is designed for simple control applications in which a small number of FIXED digital or analog inputs/outputs are all that are required. Most models include and RTC (real-time clock) and support for high-speed counters and PWM (pulse-width modulation) output. If more I/O is needed, check out our EX Series of PLCs; or if you need a display, pair a PLC with one of our HMIs for enhanced functionality. Paired with free configuration software.

Maple Systems Stand-Alone PLCs
Maple Systems offers a complete line-up of simple, low-cost Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) with built-in I/O. These stand-alone PLCs use MAPware-7000, the same configuration software used with Maple's HMI + PLC product lines. Now you can program your HMI and PLC using the same software – reducing the learning curve and making it easy to share data between the HMI and PLC.
These powerful units are fully functional PLCs with digital and analog I/O that support high-speed counters and PWM (pulse width modulation). Analog I/O options support several voltage and current modes as well as RTD (resistance temperature detection) and thermocouple sensors to measure temperature.
Use our easy-to-use configuration software to program your PLC in native ladder logic or any IEC 61131-3 programming language. These PLCs support communication with both our HMI + PLC and popular HMI lines via native Modbus RTU (serial), and Modbus TCP/IP (Ethernet models only).
With support for major PLC manufacturers (Allen Bradley, GE Fanuc, Omron, Siemens, and more), you can easily add a Maple Systems PLC to your existing control system for additional I/O.

Plug-In I/O Modules
Expansion modules greatly extend the capabilities of expandable Maple PLCs. We offer twelve options: Nine digital and three analog, to ensure that you can customize your PLC to maximize functionality while minimizing unnecessary costs.
Digital I/O modules support as many as sixteen inputs or outputs per module, or a combination of eight inputs/outputs. These modules support:
• Bidirectional (sink or source) inputs
• PNP (source), NPN (sink), or relay outputs
• High-speed counter input (up to 25kHz)
• Pulse Width Modulation output (up to 10kHz)
Analog I/O modules support as many as eight analog inputs, four analog outputs, or a combination of analog I/O.
These modules support:
• 0-10 V or 4-20 mA inputs or outputs
• 0-10 V, 0-5 V, 0-100 mV, or 0-50 mV inputs
• 4-20 mA or 0-20 mA outputs
• Support for RTD PT100 (Alpha 1 & Alpha 2)temperature inputs
• Support for Thermocouple (Types B, R, S, E, J, K, N,and T) temperature inputs
