New Product Announcement: ProductivityMotion – 1, 2, 3 & 4 Axes Motion Controllers For Productivity Series PLCs

PS-AMC1 ProductivityMotion Controller

PS-AMC motion controllers have been added to the Productivity range of PLCs. Designed to work seamlessly with selected CPUs, they provide accurate, coordinated, plug-and-play motion control. The controllers are capable of up to 4 coordinated axes of motion per controller (PS-AMC4) with differential encoder feedback for each axis and a maximum switching frequency of 1MHz. Up to 24 general-purpose high-speed inputs and 12 general-purpose high-speed outputs are also included. Available in 1, 2, 3, or 4 axis models, AMC controllers are auto-discovered in the Productivity Suite programming software, which has numerous built-in motion instructions allowing for easy configuration of standard Continue reading New Product Announcement: ProductivityMotion – 1, 2, 3 & 4 Axes Motion Controllers For Productivity Series PLCs

New Product Announcement: P1-RX Remote I/O Module for the Productivity 1000 Series

P1-RX Productivity 1000 Remote i/o module for use with Productivity P1-550 and P2-550 CPUs

The Productivity1000 remote I/O module, P1-RX, provides a low-cost remote I/O solution for both the P1-550 and P2-550 controllers. Up to 4 P1-RX remote modules can be used with the P1-550, and up to 8 can be used with the P2-550. That adds an additional 512 I/O points to the P1000 system, which did not offer remote expansion before, and an additional 1024 for the P2000 at a much lower cost than the existing P2-RS expansion module. All P1-RX modules and connected I/O are auto-discovered in the Productivity Suite programming software with pre-assigned tags for each I/O point that can Continue reading New Product Announcement: P1-RX Remote I/O Module for the Productivity 1000 Series

More Productivity2000 PLC Discrete I/O Modules Added

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

More Discrete and Analogue i/o Modules to Productivity2000® Line

AutomationDirect’s Productivity2000 programmable controller line now includes additional low-cost discrete and analogue input and output modules. The new AC and DC discrete I/O modules include 8-point, 100-120 VAC input and output modules, 8 and 15-point, 3.3-24 VDC input and output modules and high-density, 32-point,12-24 VDC input modules. These I/O modules allow easy connections for photo eyes, proximity sensors, limit switches, pushbuttons, light curtains, or any other discrete control device. The new 12-bit, low-resolution, 4-channel, current and voltage analogue I/O modules are available to precisely measure and control process variables such as level, flow, and pressure. And for easy I/O module Continue reading More Discrete and Analogue i/o Modules to Productivity2000® Line
