March 1, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Mar. 1, 2017 – AutomationDirect has added the new BRX PLC platform to the Do-more line of programmable logic controllers.
Describing them as compact, AutomationDirect says the BRX PLCs offer “outstanding features” including 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 is also included. Designed as stand-alone controllers with expansion capabilities, the units are available in four distinct form factors: M series (no onboard I/O), 10-point series, 18-point series and 36-point series.
The BRX M Series is a simple (no built-in I/O) controller that can be used for various applications including machine data logging. Ethernet communication is included in the M Series which can be expanded with user-selected I/O modules if needed. The BRX 10-point series includes all of the standard features with the addition of 10 onboard discrete I/O points. The 18-point series contains 18 total onboard discrete I/O and the 36-point with 36 built-in discrete I/O points.
