MicroSmart Pentra has always meant speed, flexibility and power. The MicroSmart Pentra PLCs packs even more features into a small footprint to create an even more powerful controller with a response time up to 16 times faster than leading competitors’ PLCs.
The new embedded Ethernet MicroSmart Pentra with web server functions boasts powerful features that no competitor in the micro PLCs market can match. With an embedded 10/100Mbps RJ45 ethernet port and remote connectivity, communication can be done at a faster speed. These controllers not only support Modbus TCP, but also have the capability to send up to 255 email messages with dynamic data and have 1MB for a user web page. These PLCs can be configured to communicate with WindLDR software, IE/Firefox/Safari web browsers, WindSRV OPC software, HG operator interface, and Modbus TCP, all at the same time. Up to 14 simultaneous connections can be established!
All new batteryless models are designed with MRAM memory so your PLC can store values permanently. This makes them ideal for applications that need to retain critical data permanently, beyond the 30 days and limited life expectancy of a backup lithium battery.
Rugged, compact, modular design
Every CPU module comes equipped with embedded I/O points, and you can conveniently add snap-on expansion modules for up to 512 I/Os based on your system requirements. All MicroSmart controllers are DIN-rail and panel mountable.
All MicroSmart Pentra PLCs meet the highest standards for safety including: cULus listed for Class 1 Division 2 hazardous locations, CE compliant, as well as certified for marine use by ABS, DNV, and Lloyd’s Registry.

THE ALTECH ADVANTAGE
In today’s very competitive marketplace you need reliability, so you need to use circuit breakers that are high quality and technically correct for your application. Altech is a US leader in DIN rail mounted breakers with ratings up to 63A. Only Altech offers DIN rail mounted breakers that meet UL489, UL508 or UL1077 approvals with a short circuit interrupt capacity of up to 10kA. No other manufacturer offers this complete line. This assures you the right product for your application requirements.
When you need branch circuit protection, Altech offers UL489 Miniature Molded Case Circuit Breakers in both AC and DC voltages. The AC version offers dual voltage rated circuit breakers at 0.2-63A/240VAC and 0.2-32A/480Y/277VAC in 1-3 poles. Altech is the only company that offers a 14kA, 20A C curve single phase breaker at 277V AC. The DC version offers 0.2-63A at 125V (1 pole) and 250V (2 pole).
If your application requires a manual motor controller, Altech is the leading US supplier of UL508 Manual Motor Controllers (MMC). In AC, we offer up to 60A in 1 to 3 poles at 480Y/277VAC. With 6 trip curves, Altech has the largest selection in the industry. This ensures you the selectivity you require for your application designs. Our MMCs have a 10kA short circuit withstand capacity, this is the highest rating in the industry. The AC version is rated up to 60A and is DC rated in 2 poles up to 80VDC.
When your application requires supplemental protection for control circuits and on the load side of branch circuit protectors Altech has solutions. We offer a competitive line of AC Supplementary Protectors, up to 63A, in 1 to 3 poles at 480Y/277VAC with a 10kA short circuit withstand rating.
