Communication is a vital component of any control system. With the many networking options available, including Ethernet and serial, controllers need to have adequate ports and protocols. The Productivity3000 CPUs have many built-in communication ports; optional modules can provide protocol conversions or additional serial ports.
The Productivity3000 is a compact logic controller that combines features and capabilities of a PC-based control system with that of a typical programmable logic controller (PLC). The Productivity3000 offers you a more powerful control solution that is easier to use and more cost effective than the competition.
The P3-550 Standard and P3-530 Basic are high-performance CPUs. Both have several communications ports which support USB, Ethernet and serial devices.
* EtherNet/IP is a standard protocol in the P3-550 CPU and allows the CPU to communicate with many third-party controllers, drives, and other I/O hardware.
