Controller for accuracy and performance in high-speed applications

The Allen-Bradley CompactLogix 5380 controller from Rockwell Automation provides more precision, connectivity and up to 20 per cent more application capacity than previous CompactLogix versions, according to the company.

When combined with the company’s Bulletin 5069 Compact I/O system, scheduled outputs improve I/O response time to as fast as 0.2 milliseconds. Event triggers from the I/O modules provide near-instantaneous task execution. This allows engineers to design compact machines that achieve higher accuracy and precision.

The controller also supports enhanced security as part of a defence-in-depth approach to help protect facilities, assets and intellectual property. The controller incorporates advanced security technologies and software features, including digitally signed and encrypted firmware, controller-based change detection, and audit logging. It also provides role-based access control to routines and add-on instructions.
