Formerly known as RSLinx® Enterprise, FactoryTalk® Linx is included with most FactoryTalk software and functions as the premier data server to deliver information from Allen-Bradley control products to the control system. While FactoryTalk Linx interfaces with PLC-5®, SLC™ 500 and Micro800™ controllers, it is optimized to communicate with Logix 5000™ controllers using EtherNet/IP. This gives the fastest data rates and capacity possible, while minimizing the impact on your automation networks and control system operation. FactoryTalk Linx delivers a solution from small applications running on a single computer with a single controller, to large distributed and even redundant data server configurations communicating with large automation systems.
