AutomationDirect releases ProductivityOpen Arduino-compatible controller
February 4, 2020 By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
AutomationDirect is now carrying the open-source ProductivityOpen Arduino-compatible industrial controller.
The processor circuit of the P1AM-100 Arduino-compatible CPU is designed to mimic the Arduino MKRZero microcontroller. The P1AM-100 is compatible with most available Arduino MKR format shields, and/or the industrially-hardened ProductivityOpen shields, and can utilize most Arduino sketch programs found on open-source websites.
Using the readily available Arduino-integrated development environment (IDE), the P1AM-100 is programmed using C++ code; the ProductivityBlocks graphical programming interface uses a more visual approach that simplifies coding and reduces syntax errors.
The P1AM-100 CPU supports the full suite of Productivity1000 I/O expansion modules, including: discrete, analog, temperature, relay, high-speed input, pulse-width-modulation.
Available ProductivityOpen UL-certified shields include the P1AM-ETH Ethernet shield and the P1AM-GPIO general purpose I/O shield.
The P1AM-PROTO shield is also available for creating customized shields in the MKR form factor.
The Arduino-compatible ProductivityOpen Controller from AutomationDirect is cULus listed, CE approved and has a two-year warranty.
