Automation Direct Productivity 1000 Series PLC. This is part of the productivity series featuring the 1000, 2000 and 3000.

Solo SL-SOFT Installation – Temperature Controller Software


All Solo Standard Process Temperature Controllers that support RS-485 serial communications can use the SL-SOFT configuration and monitoring software. This free package will communicate to monitor multiple SOLO controllers using Modbus RTU or Modbus ASCII protocols.

Solo SL-SOFT Installation - Temperature Controller Configuration and Monitoring Software
We will be installing the SL-SOFT configuration and monitoring software package on our Windows 10 PC. Communicating through our Waveshare USB to RS485 adapter, Modbus RTU will be used as the protocol to establish communication. Let’s get started. Keep on Reading!

Productivity 1000 Series PLC P1-RX Remote Slave


You can add a remote PLC slave rack of productivity 1000 series modules using a P1-RX. Up to 4 remote I/O base controllers can be added to the P1000 system.
Productivity 1000 Series PLC P1-RX Remote SlaveWe will be updating our P1-540 CPU unit to a P1-550 CPU in order to take advantage of remote IO. A P1-RX remote IO-based controller will be added and configured. Let’s get started. Keep on Reading!

Productivity BRX Do-More EtherNet/IP Remote IO


We will now utilize Ethernet/IP to connect a BRX Do-More PLC as remote IO on a Productivity system. The productivity series of controllers can use explicit and implicit messaging techniques of EtherNet/IP to optimize data exchanges across the network.
Explicit messaging means that the data messages that are transmitted will contain everything needed in order to respond or decode the message. It is a normal client/server relationship with instructions explicitly spelled out in the data messages. This communication happens at times that the Client requests the information.
Implicit messaging means the data messages are streamlined. The device is configured ahead of time to know what to do with the data. This is used for time-critical messages and it functions as a typical scanner/adapter relationship. Implicit messaging is real-time. It has the ability to copy data with minimal additional information because both ends already know exactly what each bit and byte.

P1AM Arduino Modbus TCP to C-More EA9


We will now look at P1AM Arduino Modbus TCP communication to the C-More EA9 Series HMI. This will be communicating Ethernet Modbus TCP protocol. The P1AM will be the server (slave) and the EA9-RHMI the client (master).

We will explain how to connect a headless C-more HMI to our P1AM-ETH Industrial Arduino Ethernet Shield.
The P1AM Example from Automation Direct on GitHub will be used.
