Wi-Fi models simplify installation time and reduce cost because no network cabling is needed. The stackable micro modular form factor provides various expandable I/O options, making it possible to add up to 128 discrete or 48 analog points. One version offers up to 32GB of data logging to an external microSD card.

For over 12 years, the CLICK PLC series has enabled plant engineers, electrical technicians, machine builders, and other users of all types to easily create practical control systems, all with an exceptionally good price to performance ratio. The new CLICK PLUS PLCs carry on that tradition, and they add enhanced security, port management, and many other advanced capabilities. CPUs are programmed via a USB port using the same FREE software as the original CLICK PLCs. A robust instruction set and PID loop control are provided to handle a wide range of applications.

The Plant Engineering Product of the Year program is the premier award for new products in the industry. The annual reader-choice program provides Plant Engineering’s audience with information about the top new products in their fields. 2021 marks 34 years of the Product of the Year program.
