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.

10 new modules have been added to the popular Productivity 1000 Series. These are as follows: P1-08NE3 – 8pt 24V VAC/VDC input module, 2 isolated commons P1-08NA – 8pt 120-240VAC input module, 2 isolated commons P1-08TA – 8pt 120-240VAC output module. 0.5A/pt, 2 isolated commons P1-16ND3 – 16pt 24VDC sink/source input module, 2 isolated commons P1-16NE3 – 16pt 24VCD/VAC input module, 2 isolated commons P1-15TD1 – 15pt 24VDC sinking output, 1A/pt P1-15TD2 – 15pt 24VDC sourcing output, 1A/pt P1-04RTD – 4ch RTD input, 16bit resolution P1-4ADL2DAL-1 – 4ch 0-20mA input/2ch 0-20mA output P1-4ADL2DAL-2 – 4ch 0-10v input/2ch 0-10v output
The AutomationDirect Productivity2000 PLC system now has 50 discrete and analog I/O modules providing over 400 local I/O points. Using remote expansion, over 4,000 total I/O points are possible! New DC discrete I/O modules include 8-, 16- and 32-point, 12-24 VDC, sink/source modules with additional isolated commons. Two for the 8- and 16-point modules and four isolated commons for the 32-point module. The Productivity2000 is a modular, rack-based system with a full lineup of discrete, analog and specialty I/O modules. The high-performance CPU has 50Mb memory, fast scan times and five communication ports. Two 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports allow programming, Continue reading More Productivity2000 PLC Discrete I/O Modules Added
The new Productivity1000 stackable micro PLC is the super compact yet highly capable member of AutomationDirect’s Productivity controller family. The P1000 is packed withmany of the features of the Productivity series but housed in a smaller, slimmer design to provide space, budget and time savings. The P1-540 CPU has a 50Mb memory and features four onboard communications ports including micro USB, serial RS-485, serial RS-232 and Ethernet 10/100Mbps connections. Supported communications protocols include EtherNet/IP®, Modbus RTU/TCP and ASCII. The micro USB 2.0 (type B) port provides a plug-and-play connection for programming, online monitoring and firmware upgrades. The 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Continue reading Announcing the Productivity 1000!
