Rockwell Automation’s Midrange Architecture provides machine builders with a scalable control platform to meet both their custom and standard machine needs. The new Allen-Bradley Compact GuardLogix® 5370 controller provides machine builders with the performance needed for both integrated motion and integrated safety on EtherNet/IP™. With Studio 5000® software as a single design and configuration environment, scalability has never been simpler.
Whether you are in the design, operation or maintenance cycle, engineers now can share code between different machine types and sizes, reducing the design cycle and commissioning time while improving uptime through the machine’s lifecycle.
Built on standard Ethernet TCP/IP, EtherNet/IP provides a simplified architecture for machine builders. The ability to be future-proof provides the flexibility and security to meet the end user’s needs while converging to the plant-wide network.
Features and benefits include:
- Built-in dual Ethernet port for Linear and DLR (Device Level Ring) topologies
- Integrated safety up to SIL 3, PLe, CAT 4, 1oo2 hardware structure
- Integrated motion on EtherNet/IP up to 16 axes
- Built-in energy storage eliminates the need for batteries
- Removable 1-GB Secure Digital (SD) card improves data integrity
- Support for kinematics eliminates the need for additional robot controllers and software
- Integrated Safe Torque Off SIL 3/PLe with Kinetix® 5500 and PowerFlex® 527
- Supports reuse of existing 1769 I/O
- On-Machine™ IP67-rated Armor™ Compact GuardLogix controller options
