FactoryTalk Linx


As devices are getting smarter, so is the software that moves that device data. At Rockwell Automation, technology advancements in connectivity software have made accessing and transporting data easier than ever before.

No matter the size or nature of your application, we have communication solutions that provide greater operability between your Rockwell Automation and third-party devices, machines and software.  This allows you to harness information in your control system to make smarter, faster business decisions that will help you maintain your competitive advantage.

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.
