  • Productivity Series Suggestions

    From a programming standpoint, the only thing that separates these PLCs from their far more expensive Alternate Brand counterparts, in our eyes anyway, is that they do not have user defined structures (structures of mixed data types, as opposed to arrays of a single data type) or user defined function blocks. Almost anything can be programmed with what you currently offer in the Productivity software, but itíll never quite compete without these features. Honestly, with these features, we could probably use Productivity in almost all of our machines.

    Also, if the P1K offered bipolar analog, I can say that we would already be using a lot more of those.

      User defined structures is in the works. No possible release date as of yet since still in development.

      We also have a bi-polar card that will be out sometime in the May time frame.

        I agree wholeheartedly... this would be huge!
