Arduino Compatible Industrial Controller Supports I/O Expansion Modules

Posted by Industry News on

AutomationDirect - ProductivityOpen - Arduino CPU

The open-source ProductivityOpen platform presents all the features of a conventional Arduino plus an industrial controller. The processor circuit of the P1AM-100 Arduino-compatible CPU simulates the Arduino MKRZero microcontroller. 

The P1AM-100 is compatible with multiple available Arduino MKR format shields, plus the ProductivityOpen shields, and can employ 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, while the ProductivityBlocks graphical programming interface adopts a more visual approach.

The P1AM-100 CPU supports the entire suite of Productivity1000 I/O expansion modules, including discrete, analog, temperature, relay, high-speed input, pulse-width-modulation.
