Programmable controllers have become the primary automation method for many industries and applications, providing accurate, reliable, easily-modified control. In addition to discrete and process functions, controllers have evolved to perform complex tasks such as motion, data logging, web server access and email.
PLCs for Industrial Control
AutomationDirect programmable controller products range from Micro PLC sized fixed I/O Programmable Logic Controller units to Modular PLC systems with thousands of I/O. From simple machine sequencing to complex process control, you will find a quality industrial programmable controller to suit your application at supremely practical prices.
AutomationDirect PLC prices start at an incredible $69.00
The new Productivity1000 stackable micro PLC is the super compact yet highly capable member of AutomationDirect's Productivity controller family. The P1000 is packed with many of the features of the Productivity series but housed in a smaller, slimmer design to provide space, budget and time savings..
For the price, the features you get with the Productivity2000 are unbeatable! Consider the memory, I/O, performance, options, free software, free support.
The Productivity3000 modular programmable controller is a compact logic controller that offers you a more powerful process control solution that is easier to use and more cost effective than any control solution in the market.
Do-more BRX, H2 and T1H Series PLCs are the next generation programmable controllers built on strong PLC and field I/O foundations to make control applications easier to implement.
DirectLOGIC series PLCs are available in fixed I/O (brick) and modular, rack-based models with a common programming platform. Most components are compatible with existing installations under the DirectLOGIC name as well as legacy private-labeled models. The DirectLOGIC controllers offer reliable, time-tested hardware with the software features needed for many industrial automation projects.
The CLICK PLC family of components offers practical features in a compact yet expandable design, with super easy-to-use FREE programming software. CPU units start at just $69.00.
The Productivity®Open platform provides all the great features of a standard Arduino plus the added power and reliability of an industrial controller. The processor circuit of the P1AM-100 CPU is designed to mimic the Arduino MKRZero microcontroller. The P1AM-100 is compatible with most available Arduino MKR format shields, and/or all of the industrially-hardened ProductivityOpen shields, and can utilize most Arduino sketch programs found on open-source websites. The industrial-grade P1AM-100
ZIPLinks cut wiring time from hours down to minutes. The ZIPLink connection system eliminates the normally tedious process of wiring programmable logic controller I/O to terminal blocks.
