The P1AM-100 CPU is designed to reliably take open-source control into the industrial realm. But we didn't stop with just the CPU. We've also engineered a collection of industrial shields that can add needed functionality to the controller. Options including Ethernet can easily be added to the left side of the CPU. Readily-available Arduino shields can also be added to that side if needed. On the right side of the CPU, you can expand the system with low-cost Productivity1000 discrete, analog and specialty I/O modules. Up to 240 discrete I/O points are possible on the right-side, with virtually unlimited I/O on the left.
It's your choice to select any configuration that meets your needs:
Ensure that all aspects of your open-source controller are protected from harsh environments with industrially-rated power supplies, shields, CPU and I/O modules.
Got a specific Arduino shield you want to use in your process? That's perfectly okay with the ProductivityOpen controller. Simply attach any compatible Arduino shield(s)* to the left side of the CPU and use Productivity1000 industrially-hardened I/O modules to give your controller added protection from field equipment.
You can mix and match any combination of compatible open Arduino shields* and industrially-rated ProductivityOpen shields to achieve the control you're looking for. The ProductivityOpen controller has been designed to provide the utmost flexibility to satisfy both Makers and industry professionals.
*Use discretion, since many of the consumer-grade Arduino shields are not suitable for industrial applications.
