The Productivity1000 series PLC is the super compact yet highly capable member of our Productivity controller family. Packed with many of the features you love about the Productivity series but housed in a smaller, slimmer design and with a CPU price of $173, the Productivity1000 PLC will deliver the time, space, and budget savings your project needs.
The super slim form factor requires minimal panel space (approximately 8.9" for a fully-expanded 8 module system) and the stackable design allows for simple I/O expansion.
Choose from spring clamp, screw terminal or the popular ZipLink wiring solution for your I/O wiring needs.
The Productivity1000 comes with 4 built-in communciation ports for easy connectivity to your PC or various industrial networks.
MicroB USB port for easy plug-and-play programming
4-pin serial Modbus RTU/ASCII or custom protocol connection
RJ12 serial Modbus RTU/ASCII or custom protocol connection
RJ45 Ethernet port for PLC programming and/or Modbus TCP, EtherNet/IP, custom UDP/TCP connections
The Productivity1000 allows for up to 32GB of historical data to be saved to a removable microSD card (sold separately).
The Productivity1000 requires no base or backplane and can easily be expanded with up to 8 snap-on I/O modules. The P1000 system can support up to 128 discrete I/O points or 48 analog I/O channels total. The I/O modules can be easily added or removed using the single latch mechanism on the topside of each module. This stackable design allows you to purchase only the I/O required for your particular application.
This versatility also means you can use the Productivity1000 CPU as a stand alone, low-cost data logger or protocol converter (no I/O modules).
You can add up to 8 I/O modules to the Productivity1000 PLC for a total of 128 discrete I/O points or 48 analog I/O channels. Several I/O modules are available to choose from:
