BRX mcroPLC 400April 25, 2019

AutomationDirect has added high-speed I/O modules and a serial communications expansion module to its BRX Micro PLC product line. BRX expansion modules add discrete I/O, analog I/O and now high-speed I/O and communications functions as needed to expand machine and process control applications. BRX expansion modules easily snap onto the side of any BRX Micro PLC Unit (MPU).

Two High-Speed (HSIO) discrete I/O modules ($189.00 each) are available with (8) 12-24 VDC sink/source inputs and either (8) 12-24 VDC sink outputs or (8) 12-24 VDC source outputs. These BX-HSIO modules are capable of up to 250kHz high-speed input/output signals.

The BX-SERIO serial communications module provides an additional four isolated RS-232/RS-485 serial ports. Supported protocols include Do-more! Protocol, Modbus RTU (Master/Slave), K-Sequence, ASCII (In/Out) and DMX512. Data rates are 1200 to 115,200 bps. The BX-SERIO serial communications module is $159.00.

Advanced Sensing Solutions for Cost-Effective Machine Building

Omron IOLinkSensing technology has a major presence in manufacturing machinery. It provides the foundation for maintaining consistent quality and detecting any lapses in machine performance. If subtle changes in the physical properties of a machine can cause it to fail, then the sensors responsible for detecting those changes can save manufacturers lengthy downtime and repair costs.

In addition to helping cut maintenance costs, sensors also present an opportunity to make the machines more cost-efficient. Whether through their resistance to harsh chemicals or their ability to reduce the overall machine footprint, the right sensors can make a huge difference.
