ControlLogix 5580 Controllers

Our ControlLogix® and GuardLogix® 5580 controllers provide increased performance, capacity, productivity, and security to help meet the growing demands of smart machines and equipment for manufacturing. These controllers use the Studio 5000® design environment as the standard framework that optimizes productivity, reduces time to commission. This framework manages Integrated Motion over EtherNet/IP for high-speed motion applications and SIL2/PLd and SIL3/PLe safety solutions. These controllers are ideal for applications that require high-performance communications, I/O, and motion control for up to 256 axes.
