AutomationDirect Compact programmable logic controllers
The BRX PLC platform has been added to the Do-more line of programmable logic controllers. These compact PLCs offer such features as built-in data logging, motion control, serial and Ethernet communication, an interchangeable (hot-swappable) communications port and integrated high-speed I/O. Support for EtherNet/IP, Modbus RTU and TCP, ASCII and custom protocols also is included. Designed as stand-alone controllers with expansion capabilities, these micro PLC units are available in four distinct form factors: M series (no onboard I/O), 10-point series, 18-point series and 36-point series. This platform requires no base or backplane, and some PLC units can be expanded with up to eight additional I/O modules.
