Earlier in the month I posted about DIN-mounted terminal blocks. A couple of readers recommended Automation Direct as a great distributor for these types of things.
While I already had orders for the terminal blocks set up elsewhere, I found Automation Direct to be an attractive place to order some other things:
- 22 mm pushbuttons
- 22 mm pushbutton enclosures
- Aluminum DIN rails
- Circuit breaker
- Pressure sensor
I’ll look at Automation Direct the next time I need to reorder some pneumatic cylinders or fittings as well.
They offered great prices, some decent information that helped me with product selection (I wasn’t sure about which circuit breaker would suit my application), and as a bonus there’s free 2-day shipping on $49+ orders.
Their website works a little differently than other suppliers I’ve shopped at, but I got used to it quickly.
So thank you all for recommending Automation Direct! I can’t speak about their customer service yet, as my order was fulfilled without incident, but I can attest to their good prices, the decent quality of their products, and fast shipping.
I don’t have enough experience with Automation Direct to recommend them, but I can tell you that I will definitely be ordering from there again.
