Allen-Bradley SLC 500 controllers are compact and economical

Routeco is promoting the Allen-Bradley SLC 500, Rockwell Automation's small, chassis-based, modular family of programmable controllers and I/O. The SLC's smaller size means that the SLC can be used in applications where the size and overhead of a traditional, full-size PLC are not wanted. With its multiple processor choices, numerous power supply options and extensive I/O capacity, the modular SLC 500 controller enables users to create systems tailored to the applications.

SLC 500 controllers control hundreds of thousands of processes around the world "" everything from amusement park rides to pharmaceutical processing. There are said to be 1.5million processors and 12million I/O modules installed worldwide.

Benefits of the SLC 500 include:

  • Large choice of I/O available from Rockwell Automation and third-party companies
  • Proven reliability
  • A Step Forward program that ensures customer can upgrade to the latest technology
  • Excellent quality now and in the future
  • Continued support for a substantial installed base
  • On-going engineering investment
  • Customer advance warning long before any products are no longer available

For customers looking for the latest innovations in small/medium programmable logic controllers, CompactLogix brings together the benefits of the Logix platform "" common programming environment, common networks, common control engine "" in a small footprint with high performance. Combined with Compact I/O, the CompactLogix platform is suitable for tackling smaller, machine-level control applications, with or without integrated motion, with excellent power and scalability. CompactLogix is suitable for systems that require standalone and system-connected control over EtherNet/IP, ControlNet or DeviceNet.
