AutomationDirect’s line of Click micro brick PLCs now includes standard CPU units. The new units feature eight discrete inputs and six discrete outputs, available in four combinations of built-in I/O types. In addition to two RS-232 RJ12 communication ports, the standard CPU units are equipped with one RS-485 communication port and feature real-time clock and battery backup for the internal SRAM. Sold separately, the battery allows data to be stored for up to five years.

Click’s user-friendly programming software is downloadable for free at AutomationDirect’s website, providing the tools, layout, and interactivity needed for quick and intuitive program development. In addition, an online help file provides information to help users get acquainted with the software quickly.
