Programmable controllers come in many form factors and levels of hardware options and software capabilities. CLICK series controllers are low-cost, brick/stackable units used for simple control and monitoring, available with Ethernet communication and free easy-to-use programming software.
The stand-alone CLICK PLCs can compete on size, price and ease of use with hardware designed for micro-projects, even programmable relays. But, they are also expandable and have features you'd expect in a practical PLC.
• Six Types of PLC Units to Fit Your Needs
Basic PLCs with discrete-only inputs and outputs
Standard PLCs with discrete-only I/O, plus an extra communications port and battery backup
Analog PLCs both discrete and analog I/O, plus an extra comm port and battery backup
Ethernet Basic PLCs with discrete-only I/O and battery backup
Ethernet Standard PLCs with discrete-only I/O, plus an extra communications port and battery backup
Ethernet Analog PLCs both discrete and analog I/O, plus an extra comm port and battery backup
• High Speed Counting Features Added
CLICK Ethernet PLC UnitsHigh speed counting and interval/duration/frequency measurement
Measurement: Intervals (Edge-Edge), Duration (High/Low), Frequency (Hz/RPM)
Preset Table to Trigger Outputs or Call Interrupt Programs
100 kHz Inputs
10/100 Mbps multipurpose Ethernet port for faster networking and control.
Use the built-in Ethernet port to program your system, network your CLICK or control Ethernet-enabled devices.
Using the Modbus TCP and EtherNet/IP protocols, the new CLICK PLCs will easily integrate into existing networks and provide simple, cost effective solutions.
• Built-in Communications
CLICK Basic PLCs have two built-in RS-232 communications ports: one programming port and one that can be configured for either Modbus RTU or ASCII protocols
CLICK Standard and Analog PLCs have an additional built-in RS-485 communications port
CLICK Ethernet PLC units have one built-in Ethernet communications port that supports Modbus TCP Client/Server and EtherNet/IP Adapter/Server protocols and one standard RS-232 serial comm port. Additionally, Ethernet Standard and Ethernet Analog PLC Units have an RS-485 port for Modbus and ASCII communication.
• Easy Installation
The CLICK PLC programmable control system does not require a mounting base, which saves on space.
The CLICK PLC CPU and I/O modules are connected together via an expansion port on the sides of the modules.
• Expandable I/O
A powered CLICK PLC unit can be used as a complete standalone PLC control system with eight input points and six output points built-in,
Or, the PLC controller can be expanded with the addition of up to eight I/O modules.
A variety of CLICK I/O modules are available for flexible and optimal PLC system configuration. The I/O numbering system is decimal.
• FREE PLC Programming Software
The CLICK PLC supports a very simple, but useful set of 21 easy to use instructions.
The 21 instructions cover most applications that are suitable for this class of programmable logic controller.
