AutomationDirect has added more AC, DC and analog I/O modules to increase the capabilities and versatility of the Productivity1000 micro-modular PLC. The micro stackable P1000 PLC system provides communications, user-friendly programming, integrated data storage, and a full lineup of discrete, analog and specialty I/O modules in a compact size.

The AutomationDirect system can be expanded with up to 8 I/O modules for a total of 128 discrete I/O points or 48 analog I/O channels.

Newly added direct current P1000 modules include higher density 16- and 15-pt Vdc models, and 8- and 16-pt Vac/Vdc input versions.

Eight-point 120 to 240 Vac input and output modules have been added as well as new analog I/O that includes RTD 4-channel input and combination 4-channel input, 2-channel output, 0-20 mA and 0-10 VDC modules.

I/O modules are auto-discovered and are said to be easily added/removed using a single latch mechanism.

There are no module placement restrictions and no power budget limitations. QR (Quick Response) codes are printed on each module for the latest specifications/wiring diagrams.
