Product Description
The PC-5500 combines cutting-edge technology with ease of use and low maintenance. This compact, easily-programmed, microcomputer-based industrial control is capable of communications, data logging and user-programmable process control. The PC-5500 is designed to be easily expandable and accommodates a wide variety of Input/Output (I/O) requirements.

Reliable Hardware
The hardware options include essential components such as nonvolatile memory, real-time clock and calendar, analog input channels, timers, counters, optically-isolated DC I/O lines. An RS-485 communications port is provided to facilitate remote programming and data collection between controls or a Personal Computer. The display and control panel consists of a 31-key membrane panel, 2 - 40 character alphanumeric vacuum fluorescent displays, and 28 LED indicators that can be custom labeled with text to continuously indicate the status of inputs and outputs. The PC-5500 is designed to work with the IO-2500 and IO-5500 Input/Output modules.

Flexible Software
The PC-5500 Software is designed to be modular and consists of a library of functions that were developed in a combination of C and Assembly Language. As new features and needs are identified, additional drivers can be added to this library. Specific applications can be constructed by Custom Control Systems from this library to meet various control needs. The resultant code is compiled and placed into an EPROM on the processor board. The PC-5500 is specifically designed to control industrial washing machines, however the PC-5500 can be modified for use with many different types of industrial machine.

A System In Control
In order to insure that the PC-5500 executes formulas exactly as they were programmed, a check sum error detection scheme is used to check the integrity of nonvolatile memory. If an error is detected all operations stop and an error alarm is sounded and displayed.

All products manufactured by Custom Control Systems Inc. are warranted against defects in material and workmanship for two years from date of purchase. If a defect occurs, the product will be repaired free of charge during the warranty period. Full details outlined in product manual.
