Collection: CompactLogix

Allen-Bradley CompactLogix Control Systems are a family of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) developed by Rockwell Automation. These controllers offer a range of features and capabilities to meet the demands of smart machines and manufacturing equipment. Here's a brief summary of the three series mentioned:

  1. CompactLogix 5480 Controllers:

    • These controllers are real-time controllers that run Windows 10 IoT Enterprise in parallel with the Logix control engine.
    • They utilize the same re-architected control engine as the ControlLogix 5580 and CompactLogix 5380 controllers.
    • Support for embedded Windows applications, such as analytics, data collection, and predictive computations.
    • The ability to collect data and make decisions at the machine level, promoting the concept of the Connected Enterprise.
  2. CompactLogix and Compact GuardLogix 5380 Controllers:

    • These controllers offer higher performance, increased capacity, improved productivity, and enhanced security.
    • They use the Studio 5000 Logix Designer application, a modern programming environment that allows collaborative design and maintenance.
    • Support integrated motion over EtherNet/IP for high-speed motion applications and up to SIL 3/PLe safety solutions.
    • Ideal for applications requiring high-performance communications, I/O, and motion control for up to 32 axes.
  3. CompactLogix 5370 Controllers:

    • Part of the Integrated Architecture system, these controllers include integrated safety features.
    • They use the same programming software, network protocol, and information capabilities as all Logix controllers.
    • Offer a common development environment for all control disciplines, promoting consistency and ease of use.
    • Consistent tools and features reduce engineering investment costs, simplify diagnostics and troubleshooting, and accelerate time to market for small to mid-size applications.
