AutomationDirect has a PLC for any Budget or system need To support those needs, we have 3 PLC families, Each bring their own unique value, while maintaining a low cost of ownership. There are no hidden fees or support contracts with our PLCs. We take an opposite approach, each of these PLCs offer Free programming software, extensive video libraries, free Tech support, and easy 24/7 online ordering with up front pricing. First, from Koyo Electronics we get the Click Family, this is the Go-to Micro PLC, for any PLC beginner. I like to think of the Click, as a PLC designed for beginners but is useful for everyone. With Click’s simplified programming environment, it really reduces the learning curve, while still retaining the features required for most everyday control applications. With Click’s simplicity and affordability, basic models starting at $69.00, you’ll want to use them everywhere. So, if you are new to PLCs or need a PLC for a quick project, Click is the PLC for you. Next, we have the Do-more Family Of PLCS, from Host engineering. Each of these PLCs uses the Do-more! PLC control technology which was developed to tackle both straightforward and complex applications. This series has numerous hardware and software features, to help you master the most demanding projects. Do-more’s device-centric programming allows the user to configure software “devices” to act as liaisons between the ladder code and the hardware itself. This feature along with the other efficiencies built into the Do-more platform, will allow you to master any control challenge, big or small. If you like Allen-Bradley PLCs but hate the cost associated with them, then Productivity PLCs will be your choice for affordable tag name based control. Productivity allows you to tackle many of the same complex applications as Do-more but with a different programming approach. The Productivity Series PLC is a scalable controller family, with expansive communication options and features you’ll love at this pricing. From the micro Productivity 1000 to the expansive P3000 systems, these controllers give you the features and support to get the job done, without the overkill and overpricing. Not only do Productivity series PLCs provide the needed functionality, they also come with free software and hassle-free support, that any AB customers will be envious of.
