Small, easy-to-use PLC

Description

AutomationDirect announces the release of the CLICK® PLC, the first in a new generation of inexpensive PLC components designed to offer practical features in an easy-to-use, compact yet expandable design. Starting at $69, this line of micro brick PLCs with stackable I/O modules and free programming software is suitable for first time users as well as experienced programmers.
By itself, a powered CLICK CPU unit can function as a complete PLC system. The unit features eight inputs and six outputs, available in four combinations of built-in I/O types. For expansion, eleven option modules, starting at $33, are available for flexible system configuration, up to 142 I/O. All Click CPUs support 8K steps of Flash EEPROM program memory and 8K words of data memory. Two 24 VDC power supply options, with either .5A or 1.3A outputs, can be used to power the PLC.
The CLICK PLC system’s space-saving design requires no mounting base; up to eight modules can be attached to the CLICK CPU module via an integrated expansion port on the sides of the modules and secured by locking tabs on the top and bottom of all modules.
CLICK CPU units, starting at $69, also feature two built-in RS-232 RJ12 communications ports. One port supports Modbus RTU protocol only and can be used as the programming port. This port can also connect the CPU to a Modbus RTU network as a slave device. The second port is a general purpose port with user configurable communications parameters and supports either Modbus RTU or ASCII protocols. Both communications ports supply 5 VDC, allowing connection of the C-more Micro HMI panel without an additional power supply. LED indicators located at each port indicate when the port is transmitting or receiving.
