AutomationDirect adds PID Control Functionality to CLICK Ethernet PLCs

PID loop control capability (up to 8 loops simultaneously) has been added to the CLICK® Series of stackable, Ethernet-capable micro brick PLCs.

CLICK PID control is streamlined with only the features that most users need, including direct or reverse acting control, pulse width modulated control outputs, bumpless transfer, anti-windup, auto-tuning, process variable alarms, process variable limits, control output limits and error deadband.

The CLICK PID monitor gives access to and charts all PID parameters needed to test and tune the PID loops. An auto-tune interface sets up and initiates the auto-tuning feature.

CLICK PID control is simple. With the ability to configure up to 8 PID control loops updating at 100ms, CLICK provides the most affordable PID available, starting at only $183.00 for a standalone CLICK Ethernet analog PLC.
