Brad Communications

The BradCommunication product range, from Molex, includes the Applicom, DirectLink and SST brands - and is designed and built industrial-tough to ensure the flexibility, interoperability and rock-solid performance of your industrial network applications.

At PcVue Solutions, we know a thing or two about industrial communication. We introduced the Applicom range into the UK over a decade ago and have been distributing and supporting it, and its siblings DirectLink and SST, ever since.
