Our Products:

1)Controllogix Redundant Solution


Bulletin 1756 ControlLogix® Redundancy Modules support fully redundant controller architectures with no additional programming required. Programs are cross-loaded automatically from the primary to the secondary controller. The primary automatically updates the secondary with data changes to maintain controller synchronization. If the primary fails, control switches to the secondary automatically, and highest priority functions are guaranteed a ‘bumpless transfer.’ Controller redundancy is transparent to any devices connected over an EtherNet/IP™ or ControlNet™ network. Select the ControlLogix extreme environment redundancy module for applications that must run in extreme environments.



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.



FlexLogix Controllers

A FlexLogix system provides a multi-purpose programmable controller. You can distribute I/O to locations close to sensors/actuators. Connect multiple FlexLogix controllers in networks for distributed processing.
Rockwell Automation no longer offers FlexLogix controllers for general sale; however, we plan to provide repair services and technical support for FlexLogix controllers for an additional five years, if components remain available.


Bulletin 1747 SLC™ 500 PLC is a chassis-based, modular family of controllers and I/O. With multiple processor choices, numerous power supply options and extensive I/O capacity, the SLC 500 family provides a powerful solution for mid-range stand-alone or distributed industrial control. As one of the first full-featured small controllers on the market, it remains the gold standard in logic controllers more than a decade after its introduction.



The MicroLogix Family of Controllers Today’s marketplace is more competitive than ever.Thriving          in suchan environment means    using the best tools and          technologies the world            has to   offer. All overthe globe,companies requiring      compact controllers look to the           Allen-Bradley®          MicroLogix™ family of controllers from Rockwell Automation. With five controller versions to      choosefrom,you’ll find a wide variety of features to suit most applications.



6)Powerflex Drives

PowerFlex® 755 AC Drives provide ease of use, application flexibility, and high performance. They include multiple control and hardware options, as well as optional embedded safety features. These drives are well-suited for a wide variety of motor control applications including pumps, fans, and conveyors. With Integrated Motion on EtherNet/IP™, you can place these drives on the same network as Kinetix® drives. A Dual-port EtherNet/IP™ Option Module supports ring, linear, and star topologies, as well as Device Level Ring (DLR) functionality for fault tolerant connectivity and high drive availability.


 7)RS View SE

RSView®32™ is an integrated, component-based HMI for monitoring and controlling automation machines and processes. RSView32 is available in English, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, and Korean. RSView32 expands your view with open technologies that provide unprecedented connectivity to other Rockwell Software products, Microsoft products, and third-party applications.


 8)Panelview HMIs

Bulletin 2711P PanelView™ Plus 6 Graphic Terminals let you monitor, control and display application status information graphically. These terminals offer the open-platform flexibility of the Windows® CE operating system. They are available in 6…15 in. display sizes. FactoryTalk® View Studio Machine Edition software lets you program all of your PanelView Plus 6 graphic terminals.


9)Ethernet Distributed Architecture

EthernetAutomation architectures must provide users with three primary services. The first, control, is the most important. Control services involve the exchange of time-critical data between controlling devices such as PLCs and I/O devices such as variable speed drives, sensors and actuators. Networks that are tasked with the transmission of this data must provide some level of priority setting and/or interrupt capabilities. Second, networks must provide users configuration capabilities to set up and maintain their automation systems. This functionality typically involves the use of a personal computer (PC) or equivalent tool for programming of various devices in the system. This can be performed at commission, and also during runtime, such as recipe management in batch operations. Lastly, an automation architecture must allow for collection of data for the purposes of display in MMI stations, analysis and trending, and/or troubleshooting and maintenance. Networks that can provide all three services – control, configuration, and collection of data – deliver the greatest amount of flexibility and efficiency for better overall system performance.  Networks that are based on the producer/consumer model – where data is identified, rather than tied to explicit source and destination addresses – can support control, configuration, and collection of data services. Application layers using distributed objects and producer/consumer communication services meet the requirements of automation architectures.  In providing these services (Figure 1 shows a typical automation architecture), it cannot be assumed that a single network level will meet all application requirements as each network’s physical and data link layers have their own attributes and benefits. Where a multi-level network structure is required, then the network architecture must provide consistency of data between disparate network segments.

10)Controlnet Distributed Architecture

The ControlNet™ network is an open control network that meets the demands of real-time, high-throughput applications. ControlNet supports controller to controller interlocking and real-time control of I/O, drives and valves. It also provides control networking in discrete and process applications including high-availability applications.



11)Devicenet Distributed Architecture

The DeviceNet™ Network provides open, device-level control and information networking for simple industrial devices. It supports communication between sensors and actuators and higher-level devices such as programmable controllers and computers. With power and signal in a single cable, it offers simple and cost-effective wiring options.
