The new CompactLogix programmable automation controllers (PACs) from Rockwell Automation deliver new dimensions of scalability with integrated architecture.
Designed to meet the growing need for a higher performance controller in a compact and affordable package, CompactLogix programmable automation controllers are part of the Rockwell Automation integrated architecture system, using the same programming software, network protocol and information capabilities as all Logix controllers, and providing a common development environment for control disciplines.
The PACs deliver affordable control suited to applications ranging from small, standalone equipment to high-performance indexing tables, process skids, case packers and erectors, and packaging.
Key features of CompactLogix programmable automation controllers:
- Support for Integrated Motion on Ethernet/IP
- Device Level Ring network topologies
- Built-in energy storage removes the need for lithium batteries
- Reuse of existing 1769 I/O
- Kinematics removes the need for additional robot controllers and software
- Removable 1 GB secure digital card improves data integrity and flexible memory options up to 3 MB
- ‘No Stored Energy’ (NSE) version offers additional features for hazardous mining/ oil and gas environments
- Open socket support for Modbus TCP as well as devices such as printers, barcode readers and servers
