This video demonstrates how the ProductivityOpen industrial open-source controller P1AM can be utilized in a small-scale DIY project. This application uses the Arduino-compatible P1AM-100 CPU along with a Productivity1000 thermocouple module and a P1AM-PROTO prototyping shield to create a DIY soldering station with temperature control for soldering large components. This application was created by a third party and not AutomationDirect. DIY Arduino projects like this Arduino soldering station work well for understanding the capabilities for experienced PLC programmers as well as students and novices wanting to learn Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
