The MC-series interface plugs are 2 and/or 4-pin interface socket/plug configurations fitted as an option to ME995,
ME3000 (and previous ME188) Batch Controllers, that provide an interface to PLCs.
The 4-pin plug allows an external PLC to command a Batch Controller (to start/stop/reset the Batch Controller) via a volt-free momentary (minimum 0.5 second) contact that actuates the internal 12 VDC of the Controller’s Start/Stop/Reset signal. Note: for the ME3000, the reset pulse duration is a minimum 3 seconds.
