From the start, we wanted the BRX PLC platform to offer the options needed for any project design, from a small machine to a complex process. But that wasn't good enough! We also wanted BRX PLCs to change and grow right along with the project - through design, build, testing, installation, startup and future expansion phases. That's why the BRX PLC platform allows for easy system modifications to meet your needs and keep you satisfied long after the initial design.
The BRX platform provides hassle-free I/O expansion for up to 164 points locally with thousands more available through remote expansion, hot-swappable POMs for on-demand networking modifications, and expandable data logging from the included 1MB to 32GB with the addition of a micro SD card. With these features and a starting price of $199, you can start small and build something BIG. That's why we call the Do-more! BRX PLC platform your "Automation Foundation".
All BRX PLC models with 24VDC I/O have high-speed inputs and outputs included. This high-speed I/O can be used to track rapid encoder pulses, drive stepper motors, or can be configured for other counter/timer, axis/pulse, pulse-width-modulated or table-driven functions:
The BRX PLC platform not only makes motion affordable but also user-friendly. The Do-more Designer software includes many motion-based instructions that vary in complexity from simple move profiles to electronic cam tables. With BRX, you get the exact motion control you need without any frustrating obstacles.
Thousands of PID loops are possible with BRX controllers and the Do-more Designer software has incorporated many features to make PID control a smooth process. Simply define the PID structure by filling in the blanks of the PID Closed Loop function block and the structure elements (.SP, .PV, .GAIN, .BIAS, etc.) will be available to use in your program.
When you are ready to tune the loop, Do-more Designer has many tools like PID Overview and PID View with Autotune that you can use to quickly get your process tuned and operating properly.
The BRX PLC platform incorporates many features that are perfect for a variety of applications. Whether you need ASCII communication for your barcode scanners, or 24VAC and pulse width modulation for your building controls, the BRX family of affordable PLCs has got you covered.
