New Product Announcement: More BRX Analogue and Temperature I/O Expansion Modules from AutomationDirect

AutomationDirect has added more I/O expansion modules to its BRX Micro PLC product line. BRX I/O expansion modules add discrete and analogue I/O to the BRX PLC system as needed to expand machine and process control applications. BRX expansion modules easily snap onto the side of any BRX Micro PLC Unit (MPU) or BRX Remote I/O controller. Eight new analogue input and combination analogue I/O modules are now available for the BRX Series; new 16-channel current input (0-20 mA / 4-20 mA) and 16-channel voltage input (+/- 10VDC, +/- 5VDC, 0-5 VDC, 0-10 VDC) modules provide higher density analogue I/O.
