PLC - Programmable Controllers

Allen-Bradley PLC control solutions range from large to micro and even nano applications. They set the standard — from the original programmable logic controller (PLC) invented in the 1970s to the technology embodied in the scalable, multi-disciplined and information-enabled programmable automation controller (PAC). Our safety-certified controllers support your SIL 2 and SIL 3 application needs. We offer multiple controller types and sizes to fit your specific needs.

Large PLC Control Systems

Our Large Control Systems fit your most demanding application needs. They offer modular architectures and a range of I/O and network options. These powerful control solutions deliver world-class capabilities from process to safety to motion. Designed for distributed or supervisory control applications, our large programmable automation controllers (PACs) provide exceptional reliability and performance.

ControlLogix Control Systems

Our ControlLogix® control systems use a common control engine with a common development environment to provide high performance 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. You can perform standard and safety control in the same chassis for a truly integrated system. Leverage the high-availability and extreme environment capabilities to meet your application needs.

SoftLogix Control Systems

Our SoftLogix™ 5800 control system version 23 (Bulletin 1789) has entered active mature product lifecycle status.

The product remains active and available for sale and telephone technical support remains available. However, the SoftLogix 5800 control system version 23 will have no additional feature enhancements or PC operating system updates. Current users of this product placing additional orders agree that they understand and accept that no further features or operating system updates are planned.

Rockwell Automation will continue to collect, track and evaluate user submitted anomalies however any anomaly corrections and/or patches should not be expected.

Rockwell Automation recommends using the ControlLogix control system family of products which now includes an expanding line of in-chassis compute modules to allow for programming flexibility and multiple communications options.

Small PLC Control Systems

Our small control systems offer the capabilities to help meet the demands of smart machines and equipment for manufacturing, 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.

CompactLogix Control Systems

Our CompactLogix™ and Compact GuardLogix® controllers provide higher performance, increased capacity, improved productivity and enhanced security to help meet the growing demands of smart machines and equipment for manufacturing. These controllers use a common easy-to-use development 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 one controller.
