Small Control Systems
The perfect solution for your mid-range applications, our small controllers offer the features and flexibility you need without the overhead of larger systems. Choose from standard and safety-certified controllers in chassis-based, packaged and modular designs. Typical applications include complex machine control, batch processing and building automation.
Our CompactLogix and Compact GuardLogix controllers use a common control engine with a common development environment to provide mid-range application control in an easy-to-use environment. Tight integration between the programming software, controller and I/O modules reduces development time and cost at commissioning and during normal operation. This commonality provides cost-effective integration of a machine or safety application into a plant-wide control system because it integrates safety, motion, discrete and drive capabilities in a single controller.
Our Bulletin 1752 SmartGuard 600 Controllers with Safety feature 16 safety-rated inputs, 8 safety-rated outputs, 4 pulse test sources and an optional EtherNet/IP port. Each controller also includes a DeviceNet connection to support both standard CIP and CIP safety. You can configure and program on EtherNet/IP, on DeviceNet or through the built-in USB port. These small, cost-effective intelligent controllers can perform safety interlocking between GuardLogix or other SmartGuard safety controllers.
Our Bulletin 1747 SLC 500 control platform is used for a wide variety of applications. Rockwell Automation has announced that some SLC 500 Bulletin numbers are discontinued and no longer available for sale. Customers are encouraged to migrate to our newer CompactLogix 5370 or 5380 control platforms.
