AC 700F

ABB


ABB’s AC 700F is a powerful, compact controller that bridges the price and performance gap between PLCs and larger process automation systems, making it an ideal solution for small process applications. The AC 700F offers all the benefits of tools integrated in ABB’s Freelance compact DCS system, including engineering tools and pre-engineered visualization components, extended troubleshooting capabilities, ready-made system communication, and other tools and features. The AC 700F provides powerful, scalable control options for smaller applications, where a full size DCS solution is too much and a PLC does not provide enough capability. It makes powerful control and productivity improvement affordable for a wider range of manufacturers. www.abb.com/controlsystems
