Pico™ Controller

Product Profile

Is it a PLC, or is it a smart relay? The Allen-Bradley Pico controller performs simple logic, timing, counting, and real-time clock operations. Splitting the difference between a timing relay and a low-end PLC, the Pico is ideal for relay replacement applications, simple control applications such as building and parking lot lighting, and applications in which cost is a primary design issue. The Pico was designed with ease-of-use in mind. Pico can be programmed without any special software. All programming and data adjustments can be done via the on-board keypad and LCD display. And it’s flexible. Pico can be either DIN-rail or panel mounted, depending upon the needs of your application. Pico is available, too, in 120V/240V ac and 24V dc versions — all with large 8A relay outputs to drive a wide range of electrical components. And the dc-powered Pico controllers have two inputs that can be used as either dc digital inputs or 0-10V analog inputs, giving you the flexibility to work with a wide variety of input signals. Smaller, simpler applications now require controls with some intelligence. Smart devices continue to replace relays, and controllers continue to become smaller. When looking for a small, inexpensive control solution, look to the Allen-Bradley Pico controller. • Simplicity — Performs basic PLC functions, such as logic, timers and counters. Almost anybody can write simple programs or make data adjustments. • Real-time Clock • Analog inputs for DC controllers • High Current Relay Outputs can eliminate interposing relays — reduced panel space and system cost • Small size — smaller than many relays, saving panel space and system cost

Key Features and Benefits:
• No programming software is required1 — use the on-board LCD display and keypad for all programming and data changes
