Raising Quality and Dropping Costs of Industrial Quality PLCs.
We are a passionate team of Engineers who started Velocio because we were frustrated at how little the PLC market has advanced. Hardware is expensive and software looks like it’s been frozen in time for years. We wanted to design a more advanced PLC to speed up development time and decrease costs.
Our team has been in the automation world for many years. Dennis, our president, started Optimation in 1990. Optimation made the first operator panels sold by Automation Direct (PLC Direct at the time). As a testament to their quality, they’re still sold by AutomationDirect today.
Velocio began in 2007. Six years were spent developing a next generation PLC. In that time we created many prototypes, but refused to go to market till we had something we were truly proud of. Ace and Branch are the result of this pursuit of a truly great PLC. We’re confident you’ll love them and look forward to hearing how you use them.
