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 Productivity Series PLCs utilize a tag name memory structure and provide a powerful scalable solution that can easily conform to large systems with tons of I/O or smaller systems using limited I/O. Superior device integration that includes GS drives, Protos X field I/O and others, and onboard analog module data displays are just a few convienence features of this popular series.
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.
The CLICK family of PLCs was designed with simplicity in mind, providing reliable control at a low, low cost and with little to no learning curve. CLICK controllers are a perfect solution for small machines, home automation projects, pneumatic applications or anywhere a simple system needs a budget-saving control solution.
A dependable PLC platform for over 35 years, the DirectLOGIC series PLCs are fixed I/O (brick) and modular, rack-based controllers with a common programming platform. Most components are compatible with existing installations under the DirectLOGIC name as well as legacy private-labeled models. This series is not recommended for new installations.
The ProductivityŽOpen 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.
