The Productivity Open is an Industrial open-source control platform (Arduino-compatible). This new take on the Arduino platform makes it possible to use the versatile open-source Arduino technology in the Industrial environment. Offering many hardware options to take your Arduino project into the Industrial world. This platform allows you to use the proven industrially hardened IO from the Productivity 1000 PLC line, Industrial shields, and even use many 3rd party shields that are compatible with the MKR Arduino controller.
This open-source platform provides all the great features of a standard Arduino plus the added power and reliability of an industrial controller. The processor circuit of the P1AM-100 CPU is designed to mimic the Arduino MKRZero microcontroller. The P1AM-100 is compatible with most available Arduino MKR format shields, and/or the industrially-hardened ProductivityOpen shields, and can utilize most Arduino sketch programs found on open-source websites.
Using the readily-available Arduino integrated development environment (IDE), the P1AM-100 is programmed using C++ code; the ProductivityBlocks graphical programming interface uses a more visual approach that simplifies coding and reduces syntax errors.
The P1AM-100 CPU supports the full suite of Productivity1000 I/O expansion modules, including: discrete, analog, temperature, relay, high-speed input, pulse-width-modulation. The industrial-grade P1AM-100 CPU (Arduino-compatible) is $49.00.
Priced from $32.00, available ProductivityOpen UL-certified shields include the P1AM-ETH Ethernet shield and the P1AM-GPIO general purpose I/O shield. The P1AM-PROTO shield is also available for creating customized shields in the MKR form factor.
The ProductivityOpen Industrial Open-source Controller (Arduino-compatible) from AutomationDirect is cULus listed, CE approved and backed by a two-year warranty.
