DCS CLICK PLUS PLC by Automation Direct 1 400

The CLICK PLUS PLC Series combines the simplicity of the original CLICK with advanced features you wouldn't expect from a simple low-cost controller. Data logging, multi-axis motion control, Wi-Fi connectability, MQTT communication and increased security measures are just a few of the impressive features offered with the CLICK PLUS PLC series.

Six CPUs available starting at $93.00

  • •Choose your preferred communication method - wired, wireless (Wi-Fi) or both
  • •Micro USB programming port for in-an-instant connections
  • •Data logging with microSD support (on select models)
  • •Serial and Ethernet options with MQTT, EtherNet/IP and Modbus RTU/TCP capability
  • •CPU option module slots allow you to tailor your stand-alone PLC I/O to your particular application

Expandable I/O

  • •A CLICK PLUS CPU with on-board option module(s) can be used as a complete standalone PLC system, or the controller can be expanded with the addition of up to eight stackable I/O modules.
  • •A variety of CLICK stackable I/O modules are available for flexible and optimal PLC system configuration.

Enhanced Security Measures

CLICK PLUS features a set of improved security measures including:

  • •Optional strong password support - Password protection is enabled by default and only qualified passwords are allowed. The software offers feedback on the strength of the password while the User account is being configured (can be disabled by user if desired).
  • •Encrypted password transfer and storage - Encryption helps to protect project sensitive passwords from being hacked while being transferred over the network or stored in the PLC.
  • •Improved port management - Users can disable all non-essential RJ-45, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth ports as needed to reduce the vulnerability of unauthorized access.
  • •Ping disable - This makes the PLC invisible to pings and thus reduces the vulnerability to deliberate denial of service (DoS) attacks.
  • •Session security for connected devices - By using sessions, each initiated communication request must contain a unique ID. If the ID is missing, the CLICK PLUS PLC will discard the request.

High Speed I/O

  • •100kHz Inputs and outputs
  • •High speed counting and interval/duration/frequency measurement
  • •Counting: Up, Down, Up/Down, Pulse/Direction, Quadrature (with Z)
  • •Measurement: Intervals (Edge-Edge), Duration (High/Low), Frequency (Hz/RPM)
  • •Preset Table to Trigger Outputs or Call Interrupt Programs
  • •3-axis PTO/PWM motion control with multi-axis interpolation
    • •Numerous axis profiles including trapezoid, S-curve, registration, and more

CLICK PID

  • •Streamlined PID loop control capability (up to 8 loops simultaneously)
  • •PID function offers features such as: Pulse width modulated control outputs, PID Monitor, Autotuning, Process variable alarms and Bumpless Transfer.

Easy Installation

  • •The CLICK PLUS PLC programmable control system does not require a mounting base, which saves on space.
  • •The CLICK PLUS PLC CPU and stackable I/O modules are connected together via an expansion port on the sides of the modules.

FREE PLC Programming Software

  • •The CLICK PLUS PLC supports a very simple but useful set of 24 easy-to-use instructions.
  • •The 24 instructions cover most applications that are suitable for this class of programmable logic controller.

DCS HELUKABEL Critical Keys to Selecting Right Cable Manufacturer 1 400

As we began 2022, global material shortages and rapidly increasing costs have now become the new reality. The types of materials that have suddenly become difficult to procure are wide-ranging and include computer chips for automotive manufacturing, wood for new construction, and electrical components – just to name a few.

These shortages have created great uncertainty, which is reflected in a recent poll of contractors in the U.S. by the Chamber of Commerce. They reported:

  • •83% are experiencing product delays.
  • •71% are struggling to meet schedule requirements.
  • •68% are experiencing delays expected into 2023.
  • •58% are putting in higher bids on projects.
  • •53% are saying major project shutdowns/delays are a top concern.
  • •41% are saying material shortages continue.
  • •39% are turning down work opportunities.

One of the major material components that affect the cost and availability of wire and cable is copper. This widely used metal, which traditionally has been a volatile commodity, has been steadily increasing in price, which is due to several supply and demand issues.

Omron Whitepaper - MVRC: Mark, Verify, Read and Communicate

Utopias are common in fiction, from Plato’s The Republic to The Federation in Star Trek. For manufacturers, a world without unplanned downtime would be the perfect utopia. The question is, is abolishing unplanned downtime a far-fetched dream, or is it closer than we think? Here, Jonathan Wilkins, marketing director of obsolete industrial equipment supplier, EU Automation shares his vision for a downtime free age.

According to research by Oneserve, machine downtime is costing British manufacturers over £180 billion a year. Unplanned downtime halts production, but can also lead to wasted raw materials or damage to the system itself – amplifying the cost beyond loss of production. Further research conducted by GE Digital found that 70 per cent of companies lack full awareness of when equipment is due for maintenance, upgrade or repair..
