AutomationDirect has released the latest addition to its PLC offerings, the Do-more H2 Series PLC. 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. However, it has a much more flexible and advanced design that makes integrating I/O and organizing a program much easier. A Do-more CPU installed in a DL205 9-slot base supports up to 256 I/O points. The I/O Configuration window performs full auto-discovery of all I/O modules in the local base, simplifying system configuration. For larger applications, one or more Remote I/O Master modules installed in the local base can each connect to up to 16 remote I/O subsystems, which can provide hundreds of additional I/O points.
