AutomationDirect adds Lower-Resolution Analog Modules to Productivity2000 line

Cumming, GA --- December 16, 2015 ... AutomationDirect's Productivity2000 programmable controller line now includes 12 and 13-bit resolution current and voltage analog input and output modules for cost-conscious applications. Available with eight or sixteen channels for receiving 0-20 mA signals, current analog input modules start at $143.00; eight or sixteen channel voltage analog input modules, for receiving 0-10 VDC signals, start at $178.00. Current analog output modules with eight or sixteen channels of 4-20 mA outputs start at $202.00; voltage analog output modules with eight or sixteen channels of 0-10 VDC outputs start at $195.50.

Starting at $46.00, two discrete DC input modules have also been added, offering eight or sixteen inputs; an AC/DC input module ($99.00) providing (32) 24VAC/DC sinking/sourcing inputs is now available.

Additionally, a dual-voltage power supply is available to provide isolated power to the Productivity2000 base from an external 24VAC or 12-24 VDC source. No power budgeting is required, so any combination of I/O modules may be installed in any slots without power budget considerations.

For wiring I/O modules, pre-wired ZIPLinks wiring systems eliminate the need for hand wiring modules to terminal blocks.

The user-friendly Productivity Suite programming software, designed to allow quick and easy programming of ladder logic programs for the Productivity2000 is available as a free download at
