A Flexible Design. This industrial controller has a more flexible design. Giving you the freedom to build the automation system you need. This quick video will outline how the Productivity3000 can help you be more productive.
Use the technology built into the Productivity3000 programmable controller to make your job easier. More flexible design means more choices that give you freedom to design the system you need. The Productivity3000 CPU or I/O based controller modules install in the controller slot of any of the available three, five, eight, or eleven slot bases. Over thirty-five different I/O modules capture and control a wide range of field signals. Productivity3000 offers eight, sixteen, thirty-two, and even sixty-four point modules in discrete DC I/O, and eight or sixteen point AC modules and relay outputs. Analog Input, Output and Analog Combination Modules are also available. All with sixteen-bit resolution and include voltage, current, and temperature signals. For signal termination use either module terminal blocks, or time saving ZIPLink cables and wiring modules, which eliminate the need for hand wiring I/O modules to terminal blocks. The Productivity3000 offers both AC and DC power supplies, so you can use the most convenient power available for your system. Both supplies deliver enough current so that no power budgeting is required, regardless of rack size. You can select any combination of I/O modules for each Productivity3000 rack without worrying about the size of the power supply. You can install any I/O module in any I/O slot of any base. The only fixed positions are the power supply slot and the controller slot. Other than this, there are no special slots or rules governing placement of modules. Once you've determined placement of your I/O modules you can enable electronic keying. Which means that once the system has detected I/O placement it will alert you if the wrong type of I/O module is inserted as a replacement. Build systems with local and remote racks for a maximum of over one hundred and fifteen thousand I/O points. The P3-550 CPU has a local USB I/O expansion port built-in. This port connects up to four additional racks to your base rack using standard USB cables. Any size racks can be used. The use of eleven slot racks allows a maximum of fifty five modules in the local I/O group. All local I/O is updated every program scan. The built-in remote expansion port on the CPU allows connection of up to thirty two racks as remote slaves using standard ethernet cables. There's no need to buy expensive specialty modules or take up valuable rack space. Use remote slave expansion when you're I/O count is very high or when the racks must be separated by longer distances. Each remote slave I/O rack can support up to four additional racks via usb connections. So maximum I/O configuration can support over one hundred fifteen thousand I/O points. Remote I/O updates are asynchronous to the CPU scan. The remote slave module installs in the controller slot of the first base in each remote group. It includes a four by ten character programmable LCD for system and user defined messages and alarms. An ethernet port for connecting the remote slave to the CPU, two serial communication port supporting MODBUS RTU and ASCII that allow each of your remote based groups to connect to additional serial devices, and two usb ports, one for expansion, one for programming. Just plug in a usb cable an access to CPU program and data from any remote location. Once the hardware has been installed and connected to the CPU one click in the free Productivity Suite software will detect and auto configure all detected I/O modules. This can save you literally hours or even days of setup time. Or configure the system offline by dragging and dropping bases and modules. Drive intensive applications are a snap. Connect up to sixty four GS or DuraPulse AC drives to the ethernet remote I/O network. When you auto-discover and configure your drives through the software all drive configuration data is saved with your project data and retained in the CPU making field replacements simple and fast After the auto-discovery process dedicated instructions prompt the programmer with available parameters for each model of drive. It's a cinch to fill in the blanks and program your drives. For critical systems the hot swap feature can save you from costly downtime or worse. You can configure individual modules, bases, or entire systems to be hot-swappable, which can save valuable time and money when troubleshooting and repairing a system. Most systems benefit from some form of operator Interface. With Productivity3000, you can connect up to thirty two C-more touch panels right to the CPU via the Ethernet network port. Or, for a more basic interface, use a serial port to connect to a smaller, lower-cost, C-more micro panel. Powerful components make the Productivity3000 one of the most flexible yet easiest systems to configure and implement. Our equation is simple performance plus value equals Productivity. [music]
