Rockwell Automation is offering free RSLogix Micro Starter Lite software for creating, modifying and monitoring application programs on the cost-effective Allen-Bradley MicroLogix 1000 and MicroLogix 1100 programmable controllers. The application development software will help users to streamline the development and deployment processes, thereby saving time, increasing productivity and reducing costs.
The software provides MicroLogix 1100 users with the ability to modify application programs while machinery is operating. The MicroLogix 1000 and MicroLogix 1100 controllers share a common architecture and are compatible with the Allen-Bradley PanelView family of operator interface devices. The RSLogix Micro Starter Lite programming software enables users to more easily integrate Rockwell Automation controllers, drives and operator interface products into their existing process architecture, thereby helping to reduce installation and configuration costs.
Compact and cost-effective, the MicroLogix 1000 controller can handle a wide variety of demanding control applications with 32 I/O or below, while using less space than a full-size controller. With online editing and a built-in 10/100Mbps EtherNet/IP port for peer-to-peer messaging, the MicroLogix 1100 controller offers greater connectivity and application coverage to the MicroLogix controller family. Its built-in LCD screen displays controller status, I/O status and simple operator messages.
Paul Gieschen, marketing director for Components Products at Rockwell Automation, comments: "The RSLogix Micro Starter Lite software allows users of MicroLogix 1000 and MicroLogix 1100 controllers to fully maximise the efficiency and performance of their machines. The software helps our customers reduce costs and increase uptime, especially in today's global economy where innovation and efficiency are critical."
