Its a relatively new product but so far have had no issues. Cheaper and smaller then Field I/O, just not as expansive.
New product but so far have had no problems with card. Cheaper and smaller then the field I/O.
Nice little PLC. It's fast and has plenty of memory. I used it to replace an AB micrologix PLC that was programmed poorly and I didn't have the source documentation. It was easier to replace the PLC with this BRX Do-more and create a new program from scratch than to attempt to decipher the mess in an AB PLC. The inputs and outputs are on opposite sides from the Micrologix (top vs. bottom) so I just installed this upside-down. It doesn't seem to mind.1 person found this review unhelpful.
If you are going to use a BRX PLC, this USB adapter makes programming so much easier. The only reason I can see to not buy this would be if you are buying the network adapter instead.
Very versatile I/O combination, has quickly became my go to brick! At first I thought I would dislike the separate terminal blocks, but as it turned out I like them much better than what is given to you by other manufactures or other Koyo units. The Ethernet remote I/O functionality is also very smooth and a big plus.
By far the easiest and fastest RIO adapter to set up. What can I say, it just works!!
When performance and capability are mapped against price, there is no better PLC on the market than the BRX. It can do everything. The BRX is lightening fast, is easy to program, has an extensive library of instructions, and can hold an enormous program. More and more of my clients are turning to the BRX as their PLC of choice. Many have turned to the BRX to be the controller for their entire product lines.
Prefer this to the Field I/O in size. Would be nice if you could add more then 8 cards though with a power supply like the Field I/O.
Work great and the software is much improved over time. I'm just getting back to Automation Direct products after 7 years in AB land. I thing this product family is a great value and it works well.
I supply this module for all BRX projects. If the customer needs to access the program, this allows the simplest of connections. A WONDERFUL addition to the BRX line! I could wish for such an interface on A-D's earlier PLCs.
