DirectLogic PLC's

The DirectLogic PLC familiy

Designed and Manufactured by the AutomationDirect group and ranging in capabilities and price from small fixed I/O units with option module slots, to micro-modular and compact Industrial distributed PLC systems with 1000's of I/O points.

A fully integrated networkable range of of control solutions, all programmed with the same control language, or used as Modbus, Ethernet, Profibus or DeviceNet fieldbus I/O, for PC based control or distributed I/O to other systems and controllers.

A wide range of modules are available for discrete (on/off), analogue (0-10v/current loop/temp) or High Speed (100KHz) position counting and pulse speed/position motion control.

DirectLogic 205 and WinPLCDirectLogic 205 and WinPLC

If your application requires the flexibility of a modular control system, a DL205 PLC is the lowest cost, most versatile solution you'll find. In fact, all you need to do is pick out a CPU, plug it in the first slot of the base you choose, and then mix and match various modules into the available slots.
DL205 features include:
  • Four RLL (relay ladder logic) CPUs provide a wide range of power and features while minimizing cost, providing up to 30.4 K memory, 16,384 I/O points, 230+ RLL instructions, and 16 PID loops
  • Flow chart programmed CPU brings the best of PC-based control and programmable logic controller (PLC) worlds to a common platform.
  • Four base sizes with built-in power supply options of 12/24vDC or 115/230vAC.
  • AC/DC discrete in/out, up to 32 points, plus 10 A relay outputs
  • 12-bit and 16-bit analogue inputs and outputs, plus direct RTD/Tc temperature sensor inputs
  • Data communications, including serial and Ethernet modules
  • High Speed Counter input with HS direct I/O, and Pulse+Direction outputs for Motion & Positioning
  • Ethernet and serial remote (distributed) I/O
