5300 Automation Controller

The Blue Fusion Model 5300 is a high performance programmable automation controller designed for industrial discrete and process control applications. CTC’s award winning Blue Fusion controllers combine the features of a PLC, motion controller and PC into a small DIN rail mountable package. The controller can be used in a stand-alone configuration or it can be easily networked via its serial and LAN connections. The built-in web server makes Internet or intranet access fast and easy. For larger applications the Model 5300 supports up to 512 I/O points and up to 16 axes of motion control.

The 5300 features a proven multi-tasking real-time operating system with plenty of non-volatile memory. Programming the 5300 is simple with CTC’s intuitive next-generation QuickBuilder™ state language or for advanced applications use C/ C++. You can even combine both languages in a single application.
