  • SLC 500 Controller
  • SmartGuard 600 Controller
  • Compact GuardLogix Safety Controller
  • Compact Logix Controller

SLC 500 Controller

SLC 500 is a small chassis-based family of programmable controllers, discrete, analogue, and speciality I/O, and peripheral devices. The SLC 500 family delivers power and flexibility with a wide range of communication configurations, features, and memory options. The RSLogix 500 ladder logic programming package provides flexible editors, point-and-click I/O configuration, and a powerful database editor, as well as diagnostic and troubleshooting tools to help you save project development time and maximize productivity.

SmartGuard 600 Controller

SmartGuard 600 is a general purpose programmable safety controller for safety applications that require some complex logic - allowing for more advanced safety functionality. It features 16 safety-rated inputs, 8 safety-rated outputs, 4 pulse test sources, and a DeviceNet connection that supports both standard and CIP Safety communication. Configuration and programming is accomplished through the built-in USB port.

Compact GuardLogix Safety Controller

The Compact GuardLogix controller brings together the standard control functionality of the Logix Control Platform. Ideal for mid-range applications, Compact GuardLogix controls up to eight axes of motion and supports the use of CompactBlock Guard I/O and POINT Guard I/O on Ethernet/IP, which creates a new option for machine builders looking to cost-effectively standardize on a single integrated safety control platform.

Compact Logix Controller

The CompactLogix system is designed to provide a Logix solution for small and mid-size applications. Typically, these applications are machine-level control applications. A simple system can consist of a standalone controller with one bank of I/O modules and DeviceNet communication. In a more complex system, add other networks, motion control, and safety control.

Large Control System

Large Control Systems fit your most demanding application needs. These controllers are ideal for applications that require high-performance communications, I/O, and motion control for up to 256 axes. 
  • PLC-5 Controller
  • GuardLogix Controller
  • SoftLogix Controller
  • ControlLogix Controller 

PLC-5 Controller

The PLC-5 programmable controller stands at the center of a control architecture that brings together existing and future systems by means of networks such as EtherNet/IP, ControlNet and DeviceNet. (Discontinued Product)

GuardLogix Controller

A GuardLogix controller is a full-function Logix processor that also provides safety control. The GuardLogix system is a dual processor solution that uses a primary controller and a safety partner.

SoftLogix Controller

The SoftLogix5800 controller is one of the Logix platforms. The SoftLogix controller is a soft control solution that runs in a Microsoft Windows 2000 or Windows XP environment. A simple SoftLogix system can consist of a single, stand-alone computer and its networked devices.

ControlLogix Controller 

ControlLogix provides a high performance control platform for multiple types of control. You can perform sequential, process, drive or motion control in any combination with this single platform. Because the platform is modular, you can design, build, and modify it efficiently.
