EZAutomation (EZPLC Micro) vs AutomationDirect (Click & Do-More)
Click & Do-More from AutomationDirect is manufactured in China whose price is invariably going to increase due to tarrifs. It is constantly going up and you will be well advised to take in to account this uncertainity of price and/or availabilty at all.
EZPLC Micro with 48 I/O - $329
Click with 48 I/O - $641.50 + $20 for each snubber up to $320 for a total of $961.50
Do-More with 48 I/O - $1175 + $20 for each snubber up to $320 for a total of $1495
