Bulletin 1760 Pico™ controllers and PicoGFX™ controllers are small, simple and flexible. They are ideal for relay replacement applications, as well as applications where cost is a primary issue. These controllers let you program via built-in keypad, built-in LCD and programming software. With these controllers as the foundation of your system, you can increase your capacity through Pico expansion I/O modules and gain additional capabilities through remote controller units.

Communication Interfaces

The 1760-DNET Pico™ DeviceNet™ module lets your Pico controller operate as a slave device on the DeviceNet network.

Expansion I/O

Bulletin 1760 Pico™ Expansion I/O Modules provide you with flexible choices to expand your Pico controller. Add the extra I/O count you need for a variety of applications. Expansion modules are compatible with all of the PicoGFX™ controllers, as well as many of the standard Pico controllers.

Power Supplies

Standard Pico™ controllers and PicoGFX™ controllers require 24V DC power supplies.


Our PicoSoft programming software lets you create, save, simulate, document and transfer Pico™ circuit diagrams to a Pico controller. You can activate a status display of the running circuit diagram and display the parameters of all function relays used. Built-in simulation capabilities let you test the validity of your program before you download it to the Pico controller. PicoSoft Pro programming software offers additional functionality and programming ease for your PicoGFX™ controllers. This software is backward-compatible with standard Pico controllers and lets you establish communication between your PC and your controller.
