difference between ac800m and ac800f
i'm used to program with ac800m but i never used ac800f (freelance).
Can someone tell me why i should use ac800m/ac800f and what the difference between these are.
Is it the same program language (function blocks etc)?
Same IO for both?
Can i use 800xA with both?
What would you recommend and why
AC800M and 800xA is very scalable and is the system to use in medium to larger DCS installations, as it have more interface modules and support for more comprehensive functionality, stronger CPU units
and more I/O hardware to chose from than Freelance.
AC800M is also sold as stand alone or "compact controllers" or to be used with 800xA compact HMI or a third party HMI for a very attractive price.
AC800M do not use the same program language as Freelance.
Freelance is mainly promoted for smaller size installations with less requirements, but 800xA and AC800M is suitable also in smaller installation if requested.
