CompactLogix 5370 Controllers

Our Bulletin 1769 CompactLogix™ 5370 Controllers are part of the Integrated Architecture® system. These controllers include integrated safety, and use the same programming software, network protocol, and information capabilities as all Logix controllers. This provides a common development environment for all control disciplines. Consistent tools and features help users to lower engineering investment costs, ease diagnostics and troubleshooting, and speed up time to market for small to mid-size applications.
