Rockwell Automation's Allen-Bradley ControlLogix 5570 Series PACs feature enhanced process, motion, safety and information capabilities
Rockwell Automation's Allen-Bradley ControlLogix 5570 Series programmable automation controllers (PACs), including the ControlLogix 5571, 5572, 5572S, 5573, 5573S, 5574 and 5575 controllers, feature enhanced process, motion, safety and information capabilities.
The ControlLogix controllers are engineered to improve the amount of information that can be exchanged between the control and supervisory layers, while allowing more control strategies to be executed. The ControlLogix 5570 series controllers provide high-speed axis and trajectory planning. Each controller is capable of supporting more than 100 axes of motion and integrates through EtherNet/IP and SERCOS network interfaces.
Rockwell Automation will continue the line expansion with the Allen-Bradley GuardLogix 5572S and 5573S controllers. These GuardLogix controllers provide safety-rated control for safety-related functions up to and including SIL3, PLe CAT IV. The GuardLogix PACs feature the POINT Guard SIL3 analog input module, which is designed to provide automation and safety functionality in the POINT I/O system. Users can apply the POINT Guard analog input module to measure temperature, pressure and flow rate for analog safety functions.
All ControlLogix 5570 Series controllers are equipped with on-board display features that provide diagnostics and run-time information. The controllers also have improved security features, including improved data integrity and faster data transference with a one-GB secure digital card.
