PCA1 Series controllers

PCA1 programmable controller

Although now obsolete some spares and replacement processors are still available either directly from MACOL or from another source that we may be able to help you locate.

For customers wishing to update to a modern controller we are able to reverse engineer undocumented software and re-write it for the replacement system. This is often the most cost-effective solution offering like-for-like functionality with minimum downtime.

The manual for the PCA1 series is available for download as a PDF file here.

The PCA1 series divides into two base models - PCA14 and PCA15 - and each model can be configured with either four or eight input and output modules that can be arranged as desired.

PCA15

Microprocessor: 8085-2
