Open source controllers are typically based on a readily-available hardware standard and utilize openly shared programs found online in their applications. Commonly using the C++ programming language, these controllers abound in Maker and DIY communities. Industrialized open source controllers allow the same sharing of ideas and software but are hardened for the industrial environment.

The ProductivityOpen platform provides all the great features of a standard Arduino plus the added power and reliability of an industrial controller.
With the growing popularity of single-board controllers and the risks of implementing them in industrial applications, an open-source controller is needed that will hold up in the most extreme industrial conditions. Produced in conjunction with FACTS Engineering, the ProductivityOpen platform combines Maker ingenuity and the proven reliability of the AutomationDirect Productivity controller family.
The P1AM-100 is anindustrial-grade open source CPU. It uses the Atmel SAMD21G18 microcontroller and can be programmed using Arduino IDE or ProductivityBlocks. It interfaces with all Productivity1000 Series I/O modules connected to the right side of the P1AM-100 and most Arduino MKR form factor shields connected to the left side.
The P1AM-ETH is a housed Ethernet shield based on the Wiznet W5500 Ethernet Controller. It interfaces to the left side of the P1AM-100 CPU and most Arduino MKR form factor shields.
MKR Form Factor Shield
(Header Pin Breakout)
The P1AM-GPIO brings a subset of the MKR header pins to the front faceplate with an 18-position terminal block. These pins include basic overvoltage, undervoltage, and overcurrent protection. It connects to the left side of the P1AM-100 CPU and most Arduino MKR form factor shields.
The P1AM-PROTO is a kit of parts that includes everything needed to make customized shields in the MKR form factor.
