The Allen Bradley CompactLogix controllers use the exact same programming and plan organisation as the ControlLogix units but utilise Allen Bradley 1769 MicroLogix 1500 technique I/O and communications alternatives. Their memory room is lesser than the ControlLogix units but it is far more than suitable for medium sized PLC apps.
The Rockwell CompactLogix controllers offer a answer for lesser, device-stage manage apps, demanding a lower-expense, modular answer. The CompactLogix technique is also configured and programmed with RSLogix 5000.
Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC units use the exact same Logix manage engine as the rest of the Logix series controllers. This means CompactLogix supports the Logix instruction set, job configuration and facts tags.
The multi-tasking operating technique supports 4, 6, or eight configurable tasks (depending on the processor) that can be prioritized for executing the plan code according to the software. Tasks can contain up to 32 applications, just about every that contains individual routines.
Symbolic addressing utilizing tags is used to establish facts by its use in the software, independent of the hardware. You can develop libraries of common routines that can be re-used on multiple machines or apps.
The Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC technique also provides you with peer-to-peer communications to other equipment by means of the adhering to interaction interface equipment, DH-485, DeviceNet, Controlnetm and Ethernet
All CompactLogix controllers offer you with the adhering to characteristics and features:
3-place crucial change.
Battery backed memory.
Channel default RS232 interaction.
Created-in RS-232 port.
Integrated Compact/1769 Bus.
All of the processors in the range have these capabilities other processors have an more serial port, Ethernet port or ControlNet port.
All the Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC processors have Operate-REM-PROG Critical change has the adhering to features.Operate – PLC in Operate mode no edits probable. REM – PLC in distant mode manage of the processor and distant programming out there utilizing RSLogix 5000. PROG – PLC in Quit or Program mode, plan adjustments can be downloaded.
Allen Bradley CompactLogix Nearby I/O enables just one added lender of I/O modules can be additional to a CompactLogix technique. The initially lender includes the CompactLogix controller in the far left place. Every lender requires its possess power offer and the controller will have to be inside four slot positions of the power offer. A optimum of just one controller may perhaps be used in a CompactLogix technique.
The technique earlier mentioned has a key lender consisting of a processor, two I/O cards, a power offer and two far more I/O cards. The second lender also has two I/O cards, a power offer and two far more I/O cards.
Allen Bradley CompactLogix Remote I/O is accomplished in the exact same way as the ControlLogix technique it can be linked to a CompactLogix technique only utilizing an Ethernet port on the Processor, or a ControlNet port on the processor. A DeviceNet scanner module is also out there for any of the CompactLogix controllers.
