Programmable Controllers

Programmable Controllers

Our control solutions 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 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 for all disciplines, from process to safety to motion. Designed for distributed or supervisory control applications, our large programmable automation controllers (PACs) and programmable logic controllers (PLC) provide exceptional reliability and performance.

1756 ControlLogix Control System

ControlLogix® 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.

1756 GuardLogix Integrated Safety System

GuardLogix® Integrated Safety Systems provide the benefits of standard ControlLogix® systems, plus safety features that support SIL 3 safety applications. GuardLogix safety controllers offer integrated safety, discrete, motion, drive and process control, as well as seamless connectivity to plant-wide information systems, all in the same controller. Use EtherNet/IP™ or ControlNet™ networks for safety interlocking between GuardLogix controllers. Connect field devices over EtherNet/IP or DeviceNet™ networks.

GuardPLC Safety Control Systems

Our GuardPLC™ Safety Control Systems offer superior speed in PLC throughput and network functionality. These controllers meet worldwide PLC standards and global standards for functional safety. This family is ideal for sensing speed, direction, zero-speed, temperature, pressure and flow applications. These controllers communicate on a Safe Ethernet communications network that is TÜV-certified for use in safety applications up to EN954 Category 4 and SIL 3.

 

Micro & Nano Control Systems

Our micro and nano PLCs provide economical solutions to basic control needs for your simple machines ranging from relay replacement to simple control timing and logic. Compact packaging, integrated I/O and communication, and ease of use make these controllers an ideal choice for applications such as conveyor automation, security systems, and building and parking lot lighting.

Micro800 Control Systems

Our Micro800® Control Systems are easy to install and maintain. One software package applies to the entire family. These systems offer just enough control for your lower-cost, stand-alone machines. You can buy only the functionality you need, and use plug-in modules to personalize your system for specific application needs.

MicroLogix Control Systems

For a proven, small programmable logic controller solution, look to our MicroLogix™ family. The MicroLogix 1000 controller offers control capabilities in an affordable, compact package. The MicroLogix 1200 provides features and options to handle extensive range of applications. The expandable MicroLogix 1500 controller helps you achieve high-level control in a variety of applications. The MicroLogix 1100 and 1400 controllers increase the application coverage with enhanced network communications at an affordable price.

Pico Control System

The Pico™ family of programmable logic controllers offers a practical solution that is easy on your budget. The standard Pico controllers are small, simple and flexible. They fit a wide variety of applications. The PicoGFX™ controllers offer graphical, multi-function displays and options for inter-connectivity. These controllers lead the Pico controller family in flexibility and capability.

 

Small Control Systems

The perfect solution for your mid-range applications, our small controllers offer the features and flexibility you need 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.

Compact GuardLogix Safety Controllers

Our Bulletin 1768 Compact GuardLogix® Safety Controllers is a CompactLogix™ controller that also provides safety control. As part of the Logix family, Compact GuardLogix controllers use a common control engine with a common development environment to provide high performance multi-discipline control for SIL 3 safety applications. GuardLogix Safety PACs offer integrated safety, discrete, motion, drive and process control, as well as seamless connectivity to plant-wide information systems, all in the same controller. Use EtherNet/IP™ or ControlNet™ networks for safety interlocking between GuardLogix controllers. Connect field devices over EtherNet/IP or DeviceNet™ networks

 

CompactLogix Control Systems

Our CompactLogix™ and Compact GuardLogix® controllers use a common control engine with a common development environment to provide mid-range application control 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. 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 a single controller..
