CompactLogix System

The CompactLogix platform brings together the benefits of the Logix platform—common programming environment, common networks, common control engine—in a small footprint with high performance. Combined with Compact I/O modules, the CompactLogix platform is perfect for tackling smaller, machine-level control applications, with or without simple motion, with unprecedented power and scalability. A CompactLogix platform is ideal for systems that require standalone and system-connected control over EtherNet/IP, ControlNet, or DeviceNet networks.

ControlLogix

The ControlLogix controller provides a scalable controller solution that is capable of addressing a large amount of I/O points.

The controller can be placed into any slot of a ControlLogix I/O chassis and multiple controllers can be installed in the same chassis. Multiple controllers in the same chassis communicate with each other over the backplane (just as controllers can communicate over networks) but operate independently.

ControlLogix controllers can monitor and control I/O across the ControlLogix backplane, as well as over I/O links. ControlLogix controllers can communicate over EtherNet/IP, ControlNet, DeviceNet, DH+, Universal Remote I/O, and RS-232-C (DF1/DH-485 protocol) networks and many third party process and device networks. To provide communication for a ControlLogix controller, install the appropriate communication interface module into the chassis.

Available controllers include: ControlLogix controllers, GuardLogix safety controllers, and ControlLogix -XT extreme environment controllers

  • Standard Operating Systems—Windows XP and Windows 2000.
  • Platform independence (whitebox, industrial computer, etc.).
  • Network agility—connection to open networks, including EtherNet/IP, ControlNet, and DeviceNet.
  • Customization—data access, virtual backplane toolkit for integration of third party networks or specialty modules.
  • Support for multiple I/O interfaces.
  • Uses the same RSLogix 5000 programming software and Logix control engine as the other Logix platforms.

Micro1100 Controllers

With online editing and a built-in 10/100 Mbps EtherNet/IP port for peer-to-peer messaging the MicroLogix 1100 controller adds greater connectivity and application coverage to the MicroLogix family of Allen-Bradley controllers. There are 10 digital inputs, 6 digital outputs, and 2 analog inputs on every controller, with the ability to add digital, analog, RTD, and thermocouple modules to customize the controller for your application. On versions of the controller with DC inputs, there is a high-speed counter, and on the DC output version, two PTO/PWM (pulse train outputs and pulse width modulated) outputs, enabling the controller to support simple motion applications.

Benefits

  • Online Editing—modifications can be made to a program while it is running, making fine tuning of an operating control system possible, including PID loops. Not only does this feature reduce development time, but it aids in troubleshooting.
  • Built-in LCD—lets you monitor data within the controller, optionally modify that data and interact with the control program. The LCD displays status for embedded digital I/O and controller functions, and acts as a pair of digital trim pots to allow a user to tweak and tune a program.
  • EtherNet/IP Port—for peer-to-peer messaging offers users high-speed connectivity between controllers and the ability to access, monitor and program from the factory floor to anywhere an Ethernet connection is available.
  • Isolated RS-232/RS-485 combo port—provides a host of different point-to-point and network protocols.
  • Embedded Web Server—lets you custom configure data from the controller to be displayed as a web page.

Micro1500 Processors

The standard MicroLogix 1500 processor (1764-LSP) provides 7.65K words of user-configurable memory for program and data. The enhanced MicroLogix 1500 processor (1764-LRP) provides 14K words of user-configurable memory for program and data. An optional memory module (1764-MM1 or -MM2) can be installed to back up the program and data. A backup memory and real-time clock module (1764-MM1RTC or -MM2RTC), or the real-time clock only module (catalog number 1764-RTC) can be installed separately instead of a memory module.

Program and data file sizes are user-configurable. Maximum user data is 4K words. 

You can create long-integer data files (32-bit signed integer, ±2 billion) for use with math and embedded high-speed I/O instructions. You can also create floating point data files, each of which can contain up to 256 IEEE-754 floating point data elements.

The MicroLogix 1500 processes a typical 1K word user program (including bit, timer, counter, and math instructions) in approximately 1ms. Programs are created using Windows-based RSLogix 500 programming software. Programs written for other Allen-Bradley MicroLogix and SLC 500 controllers can be easily modified for use with the MicroLogix 1500 controller.

Two built-in 3/4-turn analog trim potentiometers with a digital output (range from 0 to 250) allow quick and easy adjustments of timers, counters, set points, and more. The optional Data Access Tool (catalog number 1764-DAT) adds the functions of 48 electronic push buttons, 48 electronic digital trim potentiometers, and two function keys. Trim potentiometer and Data Access Tool data is available to the user program through built-in function files.

The MicroLogix 1500 processor supports backplane messaging, which allows the processor to read or write data to other devices on DeviceNet. PCCC and CIP messaging are supported. Processor memory includes function files that store user-specified configuration data for system resources:

  • Selectable Timed Interrupts
  • Event Input Interrupt
  • High-Speed Counters
  • Pulse Train Output
  • Pulse Width Modulation
  • Base Hardware Information
  • Memory Module
  • Data Access Tool
  • Trim Potentiometers
  • Real-Time Clock
  • Communication Status
  • I/O Status
  • Programmable Limit Switch
  • Recipe Data
