Full of energy
With its astonishing memory and performance,
this lightweight equipement revitalizes
your machines.
The Modicon® M340 platform distills power.
Vitamin-enriched processor
Whatever your application and its constraints, your preferences or your
programming habits, the Modicon M340 platform is always ready.
With high boolean processing performance, it is equally at home
executing integer and floating arithmetical calculations. Specific, yet
versatile…a new balance that could fast become your major asset.
You would like to use the power of evolved IEC languages...but then
performance might suffer. Forget your preconceived ideas…the Modicon
M340 platform avoids slowdown regardless of the IEC language used.
A ms processing? Possible and simple with the the Modicon M340
platform multitask operating system: MAST task, FAST task and 64 event
tasks. You therefore adapt the Modicon M340 platform to the essentials of
your application, and not the other way around!
Boundless memory
High perform
ram memory
■ 4 MB prog
70 K instructio
■ 7 K instru
No need to optimize your
developments. With the Modicon M340
platform you have the advantage of the
supersize memory.
The processor has 4MB internal RAM to handle
applications up to 70 K instructions.
An SD card Flash memory is supplied with the processor and
ready-formatted for application backup (executable program,
source code and comments). So there’s nothing to add. You can
access generic programming without compromise for greater
flexibilty in your developments.
High application expertise content
Because technological functions make you stand out, the Modicon M340
platform lets you express your know-how simply, always coming up with a
specialist response.
The counting offer on Modicon M340 programmable controllers includes:
Two modules: 2x60 kHz channels and 8x10 kHz channels, high
performance with 32-bit counting, cycle time 1 ms, two capture registers
and reflex actions with response time down to 200 microseconds
Configurable advanced services offering a filter on each input, a wide
choice of reflex actions, pulse generator, mechanical play reducer
Counting and measurement mode configurable functions
It is designed to meet the demands of applications such as: unwinder
empty state alarm generation, small parts sorting, simple electronic cam,
speed control.
The Modicon M340 platform offers positioning solutions that are
integrated, flexible and highly economical for applications implementing
independent and master/slave linked axes.
No axis module to be added. The solution is based on a motion function
block (MFB) library conforming to PLCopen standard. Variable speed
drive and servomotor control is by MFB commands via CANopen.
MFBs enable control of Altivar® speed drives for asynchronous motors for
speed control, or Lexium or IclA speed drives for brushless or stepper
synchronous motors for position control.
Specially designed for manufacturers of compact, modular and complex
machines, the Modicon M340 platform is particularly suitable for
applications in material handling, conveying and secondary packaging, as
well as for special and woodworking machines.
A control loop functions library is integrated as standard in Unity Pro
software. IEC 61131-3 Function Block Diagram language enables
completely graphic and highly flexible programming. You therefore
optimize your control loop algorithm and keep control of the operation.
In addition to PI and PID controllers, the library integrates numerous
advanced blocks:
Control Loop
PID automatic adjustment (Autotune)
Integrator with limitation, first and second order variation limiter
Two or three-position controller, PI hot/cold, PIP and PPI cascade
Function generator
PD/PI regulator structure switching
Duration pulse modulation
Scaling of all discrete values
Source of freshness
The Modicon® M340 platform innovates in
memory management.The ingenious SD card
offers you Plug & Load services you will soon
find essential.
“Plug & Load” card
Remove the card at any time without disturbing program execution, or
insert another card. On power on, the new program is automatically
transferred in the internal memory. So no need to be a specialist to
update a machine.
If you have several identical machines, the same card is used
to load all installed programmable controllers.
With the Modicon M340 platform, operation becomes
very user-friendly.
Simplified maintenance
The SD card enables application program
automatic backup. Associated with context
automatic backup at the heart of the processor
(256 kB Flash memory data backup), the
Modicon M340 platform eliminates the need
for a backup battery. Simplify your maintenance
with the Modicon M340 platform.
Simple storage
The Modicon M340 platform is also a storage peripheral for up to 16 MB.
Via function blocks proposed in Unity Pro: in write mode, you have
traceability and data logging functions available. In read mode, you easily
manage production recipe configuration.
From your PC connection through the Ethernet, you directly access
stored data via FTP services. This allows you to use files in the desired
application format (text file, spreadsheet...). A simple copy/paste and the
file is on your PC. So why not store the machine maintenance guide in your
programmable controller?
Information from source
The Modicon M340 platform offers a Web server, simplifying your
operation and maintenance. All of these services are accessible in local
and remote, serial modem or ADSL.
The Modicon M340 platform has as standard a ready-to-use Web server
for system diagnostics and settings adjustment.
In the programmable controller, you can even integrate a human machine
interface, accessible locally or remotely via a simple Internet navigator.
Relaxing work

common to the Modicon M340 platform, Modicon Premium™ and Modicon
Quantum™ ranges and to the PC-based Modicon Atrium offer.
You reuse your developments from one platform to another
without restrictions.
Power accessible to all
Available in six languages, Unity Pro software offers you the choice of five
IEC languages, graphic programming, advanced online help and numerous
data entry help wizards.
