The Productivity family of PLCs is our most versatile family. In terms of hardware, Productivity offers three distinct form factors with two being rack-based and one being stackable. Each series (P1000, P2000, P3000) offers different I/O capacities but all use the same programming software, allowing you to easily scale your control up or down depending on the application or machine build. The ProductivitySuite software provides versatile programming with tag name addressing that has no predefined memory structure, and offers convenient device integration for easy plug-and-play operation with our PS-AMC motion controllers, GS drives, Protos X field I/O, and StrideLinx VPNs.

Programmable controllers have become the primary automation method for many industries and applications providing accurate, reliable, easily-modified control. Open-source controllers have grown in popularity due to their extremely low cost and their ability to utilize openly shared programs found online in their applications. The ProductivityOpen controller allows the same sharing of ideas and programs but is hardened for the industrial environment.
