EC: Click Ethernet Standard PLC
Machine & Embedded Control — PLCs, PACs, industrial PCs: Ethernet Basic PLC units and Ethernet Standard PLC units feature one built-in 10/100 Mbps Ethernet communications port for programming and Modbus TCP networking, plus one standard RS-232 serial communications port. This is a Control Engineering 2017 Engineers’ Choice Awards Finalist.
AutomationDirect’s C0-11DD1E-D Click Ethernet standard PLC, with 24 Vdc inputs, and sinking dc outputs, is 3 to 10 times faster than the existing Click PLCs and is 100% upward compatible with existing Click units. The C0-11DD1E-D Click Ethernet PLC features 8 input points and 6 output points built in and can be used as a complete PLC system. This Ethernet Standard PLC unit features one built-in 10/100 Mbps Ethernet communications port for both programming and Modbus TCP networking, plus one standard RS-232 serial communications port, and one RS-485 port.
Additionally, the Click Ethernet Standard PLC includes a calendar/real time clock and battery backup for the internal SRAM; the battery, sold separately, allows data to be retained for five years. The Ethernet capabilities of this new Click unit also allows for run time edits, which means edits to the ladder project can be downloaded while the Click PLC keeps running, an important addition to an already extremely practical PLC.
The new Click Ethernet PLC units are configured with the easy-to-use programming software, available to download or on CD.
