ControlLogix 5580 Controllers

A modern control system is more than its name implies. It delivers the fast system performance, high capacity and optimized productivity that you need from a control system today. 

The ControlLogix® and GuardLogix® 5580 family of controllers use the Studio 5000® design environment as the standard framework that optimizes productivity, reducing time to commission. This framework manages Integrated Motion over EtherNet/IP for high-speed motion applications and SIL2/PLd and SIL3/PLe safety solutions. It can also help you create more competitive operations with:

Common plant-wide control

ControlLogix 5580 controllers provide multi-discipline control for discrete, motion, process and safety applications.

A simplified architecture

Our Logix offerings work together in what we call our Integrated Architecture® offering. It helps you keep costs down and reduce system complexity.

Enhanced security

The ControlLogix 5580 controller incorporates security mechanisms like centralized authentication and access control to help keep your systems secure. We have also received ISO 27001 certification to help protect intellectual property – both ours and yours. And our vulnerability-management process aligns to IEC 29147 and 30111.
