Testimonials for P1-540
This PLC/PAC has proven for me to be the best solution to adding automation to a new project. The price is right, the quality is excellent and the number of features is also abundant. Programming with meaningful "tags" is so nice that you would never want to go back to meaningless x1, x2 labels. Storage of your entire programming session on the device means not having to locate the code on a PC. The small size and cost of add-on modules make this easy to incorporate into new projects. I like the software and find it to be user friendly compared to some higher end products in the industry that charge thousands of dollars just to program their already expensive PLC's and PAC's. I found it easy to get up to speed with this equipment by watching the excellent tutorials by Doug Bell at "Interconnectingautomation.com". You get free access to these tutorials with purchases from AutomationDirect. Very pleased!
Testimonials for P1-START
The software is amazingly simple. I just ordered an analog card to use for an application I'm designing.
Purchased The Productivity 1000 starter kit as a way to get my feet wet after a number of years away from programming old PLC's like Omron, Micrologix, etc. I appreciate the small form factor of the series along with the quality of both the hardware and programming tools. I watched a number of videos by Automation Direct and Doug Bell. Got up to speed quickly and cost-effectively. Looking forward to more projects to apply this hardware solution to.
