Rockwell's AllenBradley GuardLogix controller can be mounted directly on a machine
Rockwell Automation introduces the AllenBradley GuardLogix controller. This IP67 controller, SIL 3, PL(e) rated On-Machine solution has 4 MB of application code space with two separate and full-featured EtherNet/IP DLR capable network channels. The ability to remove this controller from a cabinet and place it directly on a machine saves panel and plant-floor space.
The On-Machine controller incorporates a rotating hinge design that provides access to the controller mode switch, USB port, secure digital (SD) card and power-supply switch. It has 24 VDC power with pass-through to supply power to other On-Machine products. The mounting tab design allows for either vertical or horizontal arrangement.
