    Yeah, I know. Buy a lamp for a PV550. A lamp, not the integrated backlight. The last time I checked it was north of $200.
    We have one customer who has legacy AB PLCs, and we use EBay to get him parts.

      I think that you may have just priced this out of my consideration.
      Intended consequence?

      [edit] from this undated document : the price was $827

        We've had this discussion

        We are considering using P1K for controls and 'comms' to another platform L a b j a c k (oem variants) for analog in. We have a Proof of Concept build that seems to work well.
        We have enough usage/life data to have a comfort level with these devices.
        For a comparably configured system, considering the new pricing scheme, I can shave stupid cost off the hardware alone. -- and get updates at whatever speed scantime and ethernet allows, instead of the ~112mS update of the P3-16AD-2 -- and higher resolution -- all if needed.

          You and PLCNut have been strong advocates of DoMore and there have been moments when I wished I could, but their outputs just can't handle much current (1/2-amp @ 24VDC) so that's been the stumbling block. I build packaging machines, and for some systems, using a relay output module is not an option due to our ability to reach the mechanical life of the relay module in 2-years time.

            While it potentially adds a lot to the cost of building a machine, they do make solid state signal relays that let you use higher current devices:

            AD sells something similar, but they take up twice as much space and cost twice as much. Though they do have even higher current ratings:
