It is important to find the right products for your industrial control solution to optimize productivity. We have a number of tools and resources to help you find the most effective products for your system and also identify where a product is in its lifecycle.
Before you upgrade one or more products, check the compatibility between the new products and the other products in the system. Select multiple products to view compatibility between products and product features. You can also find release notes, download firmware and software, see the lifecycle status, and check for dependencies or issues of compared products.
We know it is critical for you to maximize your investment in your automation system and stay competitive in the market. As products age and give way to new technologies, we can help you meet the demand to innovate and help you optimize performance. We can evaluate, plan, and execute your modernization project, so you can achieve better asset utilization and system performance. Learn about our modernization programs and get the benefits of smart manufacturing.
It is important to clearly identify a product's current lifecycle stage, which makes it easier for you to proactively plan and manage the transition from existing equipment to leading-edge products. Use this search tool to get the most accurate and up-to-date lifecycle status of any Allen-Bradley product. You can get recommendations for product replacements, to make it easier to migrate to the latest product.
Our CrossWorks™ software helps you refurbish or upgrade the existing industrial controls in your machines or systems. You can enter your catalog numbers from Rockwell Automation or other manufacturers and CrossWorks software will check to see whether a potential replacement is available. If CrossWorks displays a potential replacement, you can research it further to see if it meets your requirements.
If no replacements are found, you can request help from us to identify potential replacements.
CrossWorks software is available at no charge as part of ProposalWorks in Rockwell Automation’s Product Selection Toolbox software.
