Specialty modules expand BRX PLC capabilities. High-speed systems using precise counting, timing, or motion need an I/O module that can process high pulse rates independent of the CPU scan. The BRX PLC's intelligent high-speed I/O modules can track or supply up to 2MHz pulse rates ideal for precision control. An 8-point input simulator and placeholder module are also available.

The BRX platform is a versatile stackable Micro PLC system that combines powerful features in a compact, stand-alone footprint. One of the unique features of the BRX platform is its ability to expand its capability to fit the application. Expansion modules easily snap onto the side of any BRX Micro PLC Unit (MPU) creating a sturdy and rugged PLC platform.
Up to 8 snap-on expansion motion and specialty modules are supported by a BRX MPU. BRX specialty modules are not supported by BRX remote I/O controllers.
BRX I/O Expansion Modules - Easy Snap-On Installation
High-Speed I/O (HSIO) modules expand the BRX MPU's onboard HSIO capabilities. Three high-speed input/output modules are available with either sink, source or differential I/O.
High-speed I/O modules are
BX-APAD active padding (filling) module emulates other BRX modules in the I/O configuration of a BRX system. It is configured in software to emulate the address space of a specific BRX module. The padding module can be used to reserve address space so that addressing in subsequent modules does not change if a module is removed. It also allows Intelligent module configurations and data structures to be emulated.
The BX-APAD module is
