THE new Allen-Bradley CompactLogix L45 controller from automation group, Rockwell Automation, delivers scalable and integrated motion control.
Controlling up to eight axes of motion, the CompactLogix L45 is ideal for OEMs and end-users with small- to mid-range applications, or machine builders looking to standardise on a single integrated motion control platform.
An extension of the Logix control platform, the CompactLogix L45 is ideal for small integrated motion and distributed control applications, and helps lower system costs, simplifies installation and eases maintenance.
The newest member of the Logix family of controllers also supports the use of multiple network cards, including DeviceNet, ControlNet and EtherNet/IP.
This flexible communications functionality provides seamless interaction and flow of information from the smallest plant-floor device, up through the enterprise business system.
The new CompactLogix L45 leverages the same control engine, development tools, network and operator interface technologies, and communications services as the Logix control platform.
Controller applications are developed using Rockwell Software RSLogix 5000 programming software, allowing users to move seamlessly from one control application to another with no additional program development or training.
