Cumming, GA - The newest member of the DirectLogic line of programmable logic controllers, DL06, is an expandable micro PLC combining 20 inputs and 16 outputs of fixed I/O points with up to four option card slots for discrete, analog, and communication modules providing up to 100 total I/O points. Nine different discrete modules in 8-, 10-, and 16-point dc and relay versions are offered, as well as four analog modules in mA and voltage versions. The same PLC panel layout can be used for all applications from 36 to 100 I/O points.

Other features include 14.8 K total memory and 229 instructions, including eight PID loops with built-in autotune capability. It also offers two communication ports for programming and operatior interface connectivity, as well as RS-232/422/485 net-working, ASCII in/out, and Modbus RTU. This micro even features integrated high-speed inputs and pulse outputs and a built-in real-time clock/calendar.

DL06 starts at $199 with optional discrete I/O modules starting at $42 and analog at $79. A DeviceNet slave module lists for $75.

An LCD display priced at $59 featuring two rows by 16 characters snaps onto the front of the unit. It contains seven functions keys and supports password functions for changing data register set points and allows setting date and time from the keypad.

DirectSoft32 programming software supports over 220 instructions including floating point math, for/next loops, drum timer, subroutines, immediate I/O, and ASCII in/out instructions. Programming can be done in ladder logic or RLL Plus Stage, which combines ladder with flowchart-style programming.
