Collection: PLC-5

The PLC-5 processors are a series of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) developed by Rockwell Automation. These processors are designed for specific control and information processing applications, particularly those with larger sequential and regulatory control requirements and specialized I/O needs. Here are some key characteristics and features of PLC-5 processors:

  1. High-Speed Processing: PLC-5 processors are known for their high-speed processing capabilities, making them suitable for applications that require rapid control and decision-making.

  2. Single-Slot Design: PLC-5 processors typically occupy a single slot within the control system chassis. This design minimizes the space and hardware requirements, making them efficient for control systems.

  3. Large Applications: They are designed to handle larger and more complex control applications. This includes applications where multiple tasks, sequences, and processes need to be coordinated.

  4. Specialized I/O Requirements: PLC-5 processors are well-suited for applications with specialized input and output (I/O) requirements. They can accommodate various types of I/O modules to interface with sensors, actuators, and other devices.

  5. Coordination with Other Devices: These processors can effectively coordinate with other PLCs and devices within a control system, allowing for the seamless integration of multiple components and processes.

  6. Sequential and Regulatory Control: PLC-5 processors excel in applications that involve sequential control, where actions must be performed in a specific order, as well as regulatory control, which involves maintaining specific process variables within defined limits.

The PLC-5 Control System is discontinued and Rockwell no longer available for sale. Allen-Bradley has the tools and assistance to help you migrate to  ControlLogix Control Systems portfolio. However, New-Gen Automation Limited still has a substantial stock available for you. Please feel free to contact us at any time.
