Controller reduces system complexity
Rockwell Automation has expanded its Allen-Bradley ControlLogix family of controllers to enable faster system performance and support the growing use of smart devices in manufacturing and industrial operations. The new ControlLogix 5580 controller provides up to 45 percent more application capacity and includes an embedded 1-gigabyte Ethernet port to support high-performance communications, I/O and applications with up to 256 axes of motion.
Dennis Wylie, global product manager at Rockwell Automation, says: “The new port and additional capacity cuts the amount of control and communications hardware required, reducing system complexity, costs and required panel space.”
