ProductivityOpen Arduino-compatible Controller from AutomationDirect

January 30, 2020

The open-source ProductivityOpen 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 Arduino-compatible 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 Arduino-compatible CPU 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 Arduino-compatible ProductivityOpen Controller from AutomationDirect is cULus listed, CE approved and backed by a two-year warranty.

Siemens: SIMOVAC Non-Arc-Resistant and SIMOVAC-AR Arc-Resistant Motor Controllers

The Siemens SIMOVAC medium-voltage non-arc-resistant and SIMOVAC-AR arc-resistant controllers have a modular design incorporating up to two 12SVC400 (400 A) controllers, housed in a freestanding sheet steel enclosure. Each controller is UL 347 class E2, equipped with three current-limiting fuses, a non-load-break isolating switch, and a fixed-mounted vacuum contactor (plug-in type optional for 12SVC400). The enclosure is designed for front access, allowing the equipment to be located with the rear of the equipment close to a non-combustible wall.

    B&R Automation: X2X+ Backplane Bus – Four Times More Performance

    B&R now offers the X2X+ backplane bus as an option, increasing the performance of the X20 system by a factor of four. And because all existing X20 I/O modules are already compatible with X2X+, all it takes to build more powerful machines are bus modules. The advantages of this new bus are particularly apparent in applications that involve many I/O modules or high data volume but where short cycle times are imperative. Read More…
