Communications. No other controller can do this! This industrial controller has seven built-in communication ports. This quick video will outline how the Productivity3000 programmable controller can help you be more productive.
Use the technology built into the Productivity3000 programmable controller to make your job easier. Industry-leading communications capability connects or system to a wide range of I/O Devices, as well as to the outside world. The seven built in communications ports on the P3550 CPU are unmatched by any PLC or PAC on the market you shouldn't have to spend extra money or take up a valuable i/o slot for each communication port needed to solve your application. The CPU has two Ethernet ports, three USB ports, and two serial communications ports. For programming and monitoring the Productivity3000. You can choose an off-the-shelf cable for your preferred hardware connection either USB or Ethernet. USB port is easiest for getting a single system up and running. You can program multiple controllers over the Ethernet network. For i/o the local expansion USB port and remote i/o Ethernet port are both integrated into the P3550CPU Saving you space in your base rack and saving you money on your system, because no additional models are required in the base rack for any i/o expansion you might need. add up to four additional local i/o racks and up to thirty two remote i/o drops. drive intensive application are a snap connect up to sixty four GS or DuraPulse AC drives to the Ethernet remote i/o network the built-in TCP/IP Ethernet port puts the Productivity3000 on your factory network. Connect all you're Modbus TCP enabled devices such as other controllers and PCs. Need HMI? We've connected up to thirty-two C more HMI panels to a single Productivity3000 with flawless data exchange. one RS232 and one RS485 port supports a serial Modbus RTU and asking communication protocols to connect to other controllers or peripheral Devices, such as barcode scanners And LED message boards. Try our Cmore micro graphic panel for an ultra low cost HMI solution. The serial port also support a custom protocol instruction, you can use to communicate with proprietary or other non-standard devices that have their own protocols. The built-in USB data port lets you log data to a removable USB drive with the integrated data logger dialog box. This port also supports program transfers to or from the CPU without the PC present. Grate for remotely located systems. Built-in email capability gives you the ability to send emails based on conditions in your machine or process. This does require a local SMTP gateway, usually another pc on your factory network, but don't worry we've got instructions and third-party software recommendations for setting up the gateway on our support site. You can send SMS message the same way The Productivity3000 even includes a specific instruction for seamless database connectivity. The dedicated DataWork request instruction offers fill in the black simplicity and gets your data flowing to and from the server easily. The Productivity Suite programming software even comes with the trial version of DataWorxs P3K the data exchange software that runs on your server. It's fully functional for your testing but will disconnect after thirty minutes. Powerful communications capabilities integrate the Productivity3000 into your factory environment at an outstanding value. Are equation is simple Performance plus Value equals Productivity.
