Modular rack PLC with IIoT

The EZAutomation EZLogix programmable logic controller is a low-cost, rugged, modular rack-styled PLC ready for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. Ladder logic, advanced function blocks, and a built-in simulator are just a few features that come with the free programming software.

Courtesy: EZAutomationEZLogix from EZAutomation, a U.S. manufacturer and online distributor, is a rugged rack-style, din-rail mounted programmable logic controller (PLC) said to offer high-performance specifications at extremely cost-effective price points. It includes free software and manuals with simple ladder logic programming, advanced function blocks, a built-in simulator to test logic where no additional hardware is needed, and a built-in data logger.

The controllers are said to be ready for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. With an integrated message queuing telemetry transport (MQTT) protocol, direct connectivity to external devices (such as sensors, RTDs, analog inputs, etc.), and easy-to-setup secure communication with other networks (such as Modbus TCP/IP), the EZLogix is designed to be a PLC, and a low-cost edge-gateway computer/controller.

The EZLogix line is designed to be a "bridge" between existing operational technology within a plant, such as factory machines and plant database networks, so valuable data can be shared reliably and securely to improve plant productivity and efficiency. Data collection is integrated, up to 64 GB. Break point ladder debugging is included along with automatic input/output (I/O) point configuration, automatic proportional-integral-derivative (PID) tuning, and a wide variety of digital and analog I/O.

Integrated communications include USB, Ethernet, RS232/422/485, and micro USB. For a typical 50-60 I/O mid-sized machine PLC, with CPU, power supply, modular I/Os, and software, total cost is less than one-tenth that of another industry offering.

The EZLogix is offered with free same-day shipping and free U.S.-based technical support from 6 a.m. to midnight and is made in EZAutomation's Iowa plant.
