Create a Remote I/O rack by simply installing a P1-RX or P2-RS Remote Slave module in the controller slot of an additional rack. Connect the remote racks to the master with standard Ethernet patch cords and switches. The Productivity2000 master will auto-detect all the I/O, and will create the physical I/O tags automatically. You are free to use the auto-configured settings or adjust them manually.
Install remote I/O racks wherever you need them! In the main enclosure when you have a large local I/O count, OR distribute remote racks to be closer to the actual I/O devices to minimize wiring length, complexity, AND COST. Mount remote racks at the other end of a machine, the other side of the plant floor, or in another building - and wire a single Ethernet cable back to the Master!
The Productivity Suite software will auto detect the Protos X field I/O system (using a Modbus coupler) connected to the Remote I/O port of the P2-550 and automatically assign tags to the installed I/O terminals. The configuration can be manually changed and it is saved within the PLC project.
P2-RS Remote Slave
The Productivity2000 programming software is designed to recognize any AutomationDirect GS series drive. Simply connect the drive to the remote I/O port via its Ethernet connection and it is discovered in the Productivity Suite software. And no more searching through drive manuals to find the parameter you need. Each parameter, with description, range, and value, is available in the software. These parameters can be read from, edited, or written to the drive right from the Productivity Suite Hardware Configuration, making initial setup almost too easy! Store all of your drive parameters in the CPU for safekeeping and communicate to your drives with simple read/write instructions in the software. This can save you hours of time.
Each remote I/O capable Productivity2000/3000 CPU can control up to 16 axes using four PS-AMC4 controllers each coordinating up to four axes on their own (P1000 systems can control up to 4 axes using 1 PS-AMC controller). So whether you have a single system with 4 or more axes of motion, multiple coordinated systems across your facility, or if you're anticipating future expansion, the PS-AMC is a perfect solution for your motion application.
The Productivity Suite software provides the following for the PS-AMC:
When it comes to package handling, pick-and-place or similar applications, product spacing is very important. One way to ensure proper spacing is to send the products through a smart conveyor system. With a smart conveyor, products arriving from an upstream process are brought to the right distance and phase position using several belts that are electronically coupled with each other through a PS-AMC controller. Each conveyor's servo motor will speed up or slow down to achieve the appropriate spacing between products. Four coordinated four-belt smart conveyor systems can be controlled with just one CPU.
Productivity2000 is all about productivity, even down to the wiring. Three wiring options are available to better serve the specific needs of your application. Two terminal blocks; one screw type, and one clamp type are available, as well as our ZIPLink wiring system. Why spend the time wiring each I/O point to a terminal when you can get them prewired? ZIPLink pre-wired cables and terminals not only save you valuable time but also keep your installation clean and efficient, which helps when troubleshooting, and ZIPLinks use half the space at a fraction of the cost of standard terminal blocks. Simply snap the ZIPLink connector to the I/O module, connect your field wiring to the ZIPLink terminal and your wiring job is done.
AutomationDirect strongly recommends the use of ZIPLink cables and wiring modules, which eliminate the need for hand wiring of I/O modules to terminal blocks. In fact, many of the Productivity2000 I/O modules do not include the terminal blocks for direct connection of I/O.
Note: ZIPLinks are available for most, but not all I/O modules.

Export your tagname database from the Productivity CPU and import it into your C-more HMI Panel to jumpstart your HMI development. No more digging through your notes, or hunting through your ladder logic to find the right tagname.
Connect up to 16 C-more HMIs to the Productivity CPU via Ethernet for control and visibility of your process/machine from anywhere in your factory. Use the remote access feature of C-more to view (and possibly control) your system from anywhere via the Internet. C-more offers a wealth of productive features that make it a perfect match for the Productivity2000. More about C-more here.
The Productivity2000 PLC was designed to offer you the lowest cost of ownership in its class. Here's some proof. Compare our P2000 PLC CPU (P2-622) to an Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC CPU (1769-L33ER).
The $4,332.85 (list price) Allen Bradley CPU offers 2MB of user memory, a 2GB SD card slot, three communications ports, and LED (on/off) CPU status indicators. Of course, you will also need to purchase programming software for the Allen Bradley CPU which can cost over $1,000.00.
The $299.00 (everyday price) AutomationDirect P2-622 CPU offers 50MB of built-in memory, a removable micro SD card slot (up to 32GB of data storage and portable program downloads), 5 built-in communications ports, and a high-resolution display with LED status indicators also. Our programming software (developed inhouse) is FREE with no annual licensing fees. Download as many copies as you want. On top of that, you'll also get our FREE unlimited phone-in technical support which has received numerous service awards.
