Most of the analog I/O modules allow software configuration - no dip switches to set! Just pull up the hardware configuration dialog box, and select your range, resolution, etc. right on the screen.
Start with high-density I/O modules (up to 64 inputs or outputs per module) install those in an 11- slot base, and you've got over 700 I/O in a single rack! Add up to 4 local racks to your local base group, and the possible I/O total grows to over 3,500 I/O points.
Still need more? Add up to 16 Remote Slave racks, each with its own set of four local expansion racks and the number is truly staggering - well over 59,000 I/O points.
Module Status Bits (MST) are automatically created for each module when you select (or auto-discover) that module in your hardware configuration. These bits are added to your tagname database and you can change or augment the tagnames to be even more descriptive.
Use these MST bits for error checking and reporting, and to simplify the troubleshooting process.
Have you ever felt unproductive configuring stop bits, parity, or baud rates in order to connect to a programmable controller? The Productivity3000 uses USB programming for true plug-and-play functionality. Plug in your USB cable and move on to more productive activities like configuration and programming. (not available on the P3-550E CPU)
You can program across Ethernet as well, but we wanted Productivity3000 to have a fast reliable way to get started. When combined with auto-discovery of I/O modules, the USB plug-and-play capability helps you be productive right away.
The P3-550(E) CPU's lightning fast processor executes your ladder code quickly and efficiently!

The performance benchmark used for testing the Productivity3000 includes 3 kbytes of Boolean logic, and 1k of I/O. The Productivity3000 CPUs consistently executes this test with a scan time of less than 650 microseconds.
This processing power also means that there are practically no limits on the number of timers, counters, and PID loops for your application. And the powerful task management tools built in to the software help you streamline your ladder code for maximum efficiency.

Module configuration is a snap with the Productivity3000 motion modules. Drop your P3-HSO (High-Speed Output module) or P3-HSI (High-Speed Input module) into the hardware configuration and define each channel's behavior, status bits, limits and scaling on-the-fly, all without the need for an external configuration utility or software.
With straightforward instructions such as "Find Home", "Set Position", "Simple Move", to name a few, it's never been easier to get your simple motion application up and running.
The integrated High-Speed module testing tool is a great way to test your hardware, including the module, module wiring, I/O operations and connected stepper or servo (if applicable). With this simple tool, no programming is necessary to see if you are getting pulse signals from your high-speed output module.
In this example the Simple Move is used to index the table into position after each cycle. Simply specify the number of pulses to move (or scale it to inches, millimeters, revolutions, etc) and that's it!
Add up to a maximum of eleven (11) P3-HSO or P3-HSI modules in any combination to any CPU and remote base group. That gives you up to 22 axes of motion or high speed counting capability in a single base group. These modules are supported and fully functional in the CPU base, local and remote expansion bases. Our standard instructions were designed to make your everyday motion applications simpler; The Find Home, Set Position, Simple Move & Velocity Move instructions (to name a few) were created to get you up and running sooner. Features and capabilities such as Registration, Jerk Control, Channel Scaling were included to give you the flexibility to accomplish those jobs.
