Productivity3000® PAC Software & Cables

    The Productivity3000 programmable automation controller (PAC) is a compact controller that combines the features and capabilities of a PC-based control system with that of a typical programmable logic controller (PLC). The Productivity3000 offers you a more powerful control solution that is easier to use and more cost effective than any control solution in the market. ProductivitySuite is user-friendly programming software designed to allow quick and easy programming of ladder logic programs for the Productivity3000 PAC. The online help file provides information that will help you get acquainted with the software quickly.

  • User Defined Tag-based Programming
    Descriptive naming of I/O points and other internal tags that make sense for the application
  • Strong data typing to reduce obscurity
  • Arrays for process management (easier data management, recipe handling)

  • Simple to Use Instructions
    Practical instructions that help solve problems
  • No stack to manipulate
  • Easy math eliminates the need for using complex rungs to do simple calculations

  • Application Tools
    Allow quick access to many of the advanced features of the ProductivitySuite software
  • Setup Hardware Config, Security Accounts, Set PAC Time/Date
  • Write Program Tag Database, I/O Overview, Rung Comments
  • Monitor & Debug Data View, Data Logger, PID Tuning, Bit Histogram, PAC Error History, PAC Event History
  • Control PAC Offline, Online, Choose PAC, Transfer to PAC, Run, Stop, Debug

  • Task Management
    Task Manager allows quick and easy prioritization of Ladder Logic code. By breaking code into logical tasks, the task manager can then easily change priorities or disable parts of the code.
  • Run First Scan Only, Run Every Scan, Run Every Second, Run When Called, Disable Task

    DataWorx PLC- Ethernet Data Collection Software

    Before DataWorx, it was necessary to purchase an OPC/ DDE server, write code or buy a Human Machine Interface (HMI) package to program, in order to collect data from our PACs/PLCs/WinPLCs. Now, the DataWorx data logger software makes it simple and cost effective to easily collect valuable process control data to enable you to make better business decisions.

    The DataWorx data logger software package easily connects your Ethernet-enabled Productivity3000 programmable automation controllers (PACs), DirectLOGIC programmable logic controllers (PLCs), or WinPLCs, to standalone PCs or network servers for simple data logging. Select either the DataWorx PLC Data Logger, the DataWorx WinPLC Data Logger, or the DataWorx Productivity3000 Data logger software based upon the device from which you are collecting data.

    The DataWorx P3K Server's primary function is to listen to devices and either record the data into a database or read from a database. DataWorx enables each device to directly perform database operations. Connect with any Microsoft Access, SQL or ODBC compatible server.

    Benefits of DataWorx Data Logging Software

    • Easy setup
    • No SCADA software required
    • Stores unlimited amounts of data
    • Can receive data from an unlimited number of DirectLOGIC PLCs, or Think & Do Studio or Think & Do Live! WinPLCs
    • DirectLOGIC PLCs, or Think & Do Studio or Think & Do Live! WinPLCs have complete control of storing the data
    • DataWorx PK3 Software connects any networked Productivity3000 PAC system to a supported database


    • Log valuable production data to networked PCs or file servers for Statistical Process Control decision making
    • Archive test data in a secure server file location with built-in date/ time stamping features to satisfy quality assurance or audit trail requirements
    • Use in data acquisition applications as source content for historical trending to be used by ERP or other higher level business system applications
    • Transferring, updating and retrieving data into or from a network database.

    DataWorx ServerDataWorx Monitor
    • The DataWorx data logging software packages include a Server application that runs as a Microsoft Windows service. Running as a service means the DataWorx program runs regardless if anyone is presently logged-in on the PC or not.

    • Another advantage of the Server running as a service is that the user does not need to manually start the logging every time the computer restarts. The application listens for information from the PAC/PLC/WinPLC and logs the data into a file configured from the Monitoring application.

    • The Server is capable of collecting an unlimited amount of data from an unlimited number of PACs/PLCs/WinPLCs.
    • The Monitor application included in the DataWorx package configures the Servers file creation cycle, and PAC/PLC/WinPLC listings. The Monitor also allows you to view or save the data files stored on the Server.

    • Data files can be opened and viewed in Notepad, Excel, or another chosen program. You may choose to create files on a daily, monthly, or yearly basis. You can view the various reports that are stored on the server for each PLC/ WinPLC.

    • The Monitor application is able to conveniently run from any PC that is networked with the Server.
