More Info on the Finalists

These AutomationDirect Engineers’ Choice Awards Finalists products are robust, reliable and industrial- strength automation devices. The PLC provides extensive control capabilities, and the HMI provides visual display of control system data, and both do it cost-effectively. Add to that free, downloadable and easy to use software—and the future direction of control systems’ and HMIs’ functionality, capability and availability become apparent: powerful features that are easy to access packaged in compact form factors, all at affordable prices.

Productivity1000

The Productivity1000 is the smallest member of the Productivity controller family—very compact yet highly capable. It has many features packed in a smaller, slimmer design and offered at a low price, delivering cost, time and space savings. Check out the new Productivity100 PLC here, and please vote considering its highly capable yet easy to use features.

3-inch C-more Touch Screen

Micro 3-inch touch or non-touch HMIs pair well with the Productivity1000 in cost-effective designs. This HMI provides the easy monitoring and control needed in automated systems, but does not skimp on features. It easily communicates with controllers and operators to provide critical information via graphics, bit maps, text, function keys and indicator LEDs. heck out the new 3-inch C-more here. Please vote for the C-more micro considering it’s a touch panel at a text panel price, with features typically found on more expensive touch screen products.
