(VID-DH-0001) - The Do-more Series PLC is the next generation programmable controller built on a strong PLC foundation that makes control applications easier to implement.
Do-more uses proven DirectLOGIC DL205 hardware for a flexible control platform and introduces a powerful, intuitive set of new programming tools.
This combination of Do-more H2 Series CPUs and the existing line of AutomationDirect 205 series I/O modules and base units creates an incredibly powerful micro modular PLC at a fraction of the cost of comparable PLCs and PACs.
Welcome to Kickstart where you get to see new products here at AutomationDirect. I am excited to show you our newest PLC Controller for the DL205 series called: Do More! This new PLC line offers features and performance of high-end PLCs for an economical price. Using the proven DirectLOGIC DL205 hardware as a platform, the Do-more H2 PLC supports all base units, discrete and analog I/O modules available for the DL205 PLC. Do more CPU modules are avail with and without Ethernet built in, enabling you to save cost and rack space by utilizing the H2-DM1E with Ethernet. Both modules have a USB port which makes connectivity to the Do more designer software a breeze. We also offer Do more as a starter kit that includes hardware, programming cable, user manual, software CD, and a 30 day free access to online video training. Do More has a much more flexible and advanced design that makes integrating I/O and organizing a program much easier. The H2 CPUs offer four times more program memory, nine times more data memory, and operate at speeds up to 20 times faster than current DL205 CPUs. With a wide array of high-level program blocks in Do-more, developers can use two or three instructions to program functionality that used to require many lines of hard-to-understand ladder logic. Do-more provides an advanced instruction set to reduce programming time, superior memory mapping to improve data management, and data structures to simplify initial programming and long-term software maintenance. Do More is Stage based programming which can be better at controlling sequential process like machine control. Do more supports Axis mode instructions that offer a more dynamic way of commanding motion through our H2-CTRIO2 module. It offers tools like: stepping through program, force stages on and off and more. Do More provides a list of devices in the system with their status. The user documentation like nicknames, rung comments etc are all stored on the CPU. Multiple passwords, up to 256 user programs, run time editing, over 2000 PID loops! And, memory back up is included. WOW!! And….the Do-more Designer software can be downloaded free of charge. Do More was designed and built by our long time friends at HOST engineering. You can find the agency approvals and specs for the Do More products on our website at : www.automationdirect.com Don’t forget to check out all of our programmable controller lines from micro to bricks to modular and specialty PLCs all the way up to PACs… and you can find them all right here at automationdirect.
