AutomationDirect has added the BRX PLC platform to their line of programmable logic controllers (PLCs). The compact BRX PLCs features include built-in data logging, motion control, serial, and Ethernet communication, an interchangeable 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, these micro PLC units are available in four form factors: M series, 10-point series, 18-point series, and 36-point series.
The BRX M Series is a controller (with no built-in I/O) that can be used for a variety of purposes 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 starts with 36 built-in discrete I/O points. BRX controllers with onboard I/O are offered with ac, dc, and relay configurations, as well as with software-selectable analog I/O and Ethernet options. High-speed I/O is also built in to every BRX PLC unit with onboard dc I/O.
