Programmable logic controllers have to reliably execute the logic operations and communication requests that automated facilities/machines require. The DirectLOGIC 05 controller offers reliable, time-tested hardware with the software features needed for many industrial automation projects.
Would a $131.00 micro PLC with incredible features solve your application's discrete and process control problems?
The DL05 and the DL06 DirectLOGIC product lines are a family of micro PLCs designed to fit more applications than any other PLC family in their class.
Starting with the DL05 at 8 inputs/ 6 outputs, all the way up to the fully expanded 100 I/O DL06 PLC, these PLCs are a standard that can grow with the changing needs of your machine or process control applications.
The inexpensive DirectLOGIC DL05 PLC offers many features including:

The DL05 micro PLC line includes eight PLC units, each with 8 built-in discrete inputs, 6 discrete outputs. One option slot adds analog or discrete I/O, additional communications or a memory module with real-time clock and battery back-up.
Discrete I/O option modules allow the DL05 PLC to expand with the needs of industrial control applications for just a few dollars more.
Using option modules, analog I/O can be added to the DL05 PLC. These analog modules are among the smallest and lowest-priced in the industry.
16-Bit analog modules offer higher resolution, higher density (8 channel) and output only versions.
Implement advanced networking solutions for the DL05 with DeviceNet, Ethernet (10 or 100 MBit), and Profibus Modules. The D0-DCM module supports DirectNet and Modbus (slave) protocols.
The H0-CTRIO2 High-Speed Counter I/O modules are affordable, high-performance, high-feature solutions for DL05 PLC counting input and pulse output.
Spare parts and accessories for the DirectLOGIC 05 programmable logic controller include terminal blocks, batteries, communications adapters, converters & more...
The new DirectSOFT6 software package offers a host of advanced features for easier PLC programming.
Full version priced at
Super low prices
starting at $131.00! The DL05 micro PLC offers incredible features at a disposable price.
Two RS-232 serial communication ports are included on all models. This allows connectivity to an operator interface and networking with an AC drive or another PLC at the same time.
Simple high-speed counting
or pulse output built in (on specific models). The DL05 includes built-in configurable high-speed I/O. There's no need to purchase a separate motion controller or programmable limit switch (PLS).
Easy ZIPLink connection
The 16-point option modules can connect to ZIPLink modules including feedthrough terminals, fuse, LED and relay.
The new PC-DS100 package has all the features of the full package but is restricted to a 100-word program download.
Memory cartridge only $61.00
with real-time clock for event scheduling or data logging applications. Also battery back-up and integrated upload and download buttons.
using an option module adds up to 16 more discrete I/O points. Analog I/O modules are also available.
advanced networking solutions for the DL05 with a DeviceNet, Ethernet, or Profibus module. The D0-DCM module supports DirectNet and Modbus (slave) protocols.
Really low prices
Combine a $91.00 4-channel analog input module with our $131.00 DL05 PLC for low-cost analog monitoring. Use the built-in PID loops and build a micro control system at an unbeatable price.
built-in with two RS-232 serial communication ports. Port 2 supports industry standard Modbus RTU protocol (master and slave at 38.4K baud).
Four PID loops
with auto tuning included at no additional charge. DirectSOFT programming software includes a loop tune screen with trending, and fill-in charts for alarms and ramp/soak profiles.
Low cost RTU system
for almost any remote dial-up application. Combine a DL05 AC- or DC-powered unit with our industrial telephone modem and avoid the high cost of an advanced Remote Telemetry System (RTU).
Analog option modules
The smallest and lowest priced in the industry. Seven models to choose from including RTD and thermocouple.
Low-cost process control
The small size and flexible features of the DL05 PLC make for a great low-cost process control system. Connect a temperature sensor to an analog input module. Then, control process loads like heater elements and/or mixers with DL05 discrete outputs using "time-proportioning" and the built-in PID.
