1761 MicroLogix 1000

Bulletin 1761 MicroLogix™ 1000 Controllers are the most compact of the MicroLogix family. This controller fits a wide variety of applications up to 32 I/O points, while using a fraction of the space of a full-size controller. It contains embedded analog I/O, providing compact and cost-effective analog performance.

1762 MicroLogix 1200

Bulletin 1762 MicroLogix™ 1200 Controllers are small enough to fit in tight spaces and powerful enough to accommodate a broad range of applications. Our controller is available in 24-point and 40-point versions. You can expand the I/O count using rackless I/O modules. You can build larger control systems, achieve greater application flexibility, and expand your system at a lower cost and with reduced parts inventory. A field-upgradeable flash operating system keeps you be up-to-date with the latest features.

1762 MicroLogix Expansion I/O

Bulletin 1762 MicroLogix™ Expansion I/O modules extend the capabilities of the MicroLogix 1100, 1200, and 1400 controllers by maximizing flexibility of the I/O count and type. The modular, rackless design enhances cost savings and reduces replacement parts inventory. Modules can be either DIN rail or panel mounted.

1763 MicroLogix 1100

Bulletin 1763 MicroLogix™ 1100 Controllers add embedded EtherNet/IP™, on-line editing and an LCD to the MicroLogix family. The built-in LCD shows controller status, I/O status and simple operator messages. With 2 analog inputs, 10 digital inputs and 6 digital outputs, the MicroLogix 1100 controller can handle a wide variety of tasks.

1764 MicroLogix 1500

Bulletin 1764 MicroLogix™ 1500 Controllers are the most expandable members of the MicroLogix family. Building upon the critical features of the MicroLogix 1200 controllers, this controller fits many applications that traditionally called for larger, more expensive controllers. With a processor, base unit with power supply and embedded I/O, this controller packs the best features of a modular system into a low-cost, small footprint.

1766 MicroLogix 1400

Bulletin 1766 MicroLogix™ 1400 Controllers build upon critical MicroLogix 1100 features: EtherNet/IP™, on-line editing and a built-in LCD. These controllers feature a higher I/O count, faster high-speed counter, pulse train output, enhanced network capabilities and backlight on the LCD. Controllers without embedded analog I/O points provide 32 digital I/O points, while analog versions offer 32 digital I/O points and 6 analog I/O points. You can expand all versions with up to seven 1762 expansion I/O modules.

1769 Compact I/O

Bulletin 1769 Compact I/O™ modules can be used as local and distributed I/O for a CompactLogix™, Compact GuardLogix®, or MicroLogix™ 1500 controller. Rack-type features in a rackless design lower costs and reduce replacement parts inventory. A built-in removable terminal block provides connections to I/O sensors and actuators.

Communications

Bulletin 1761 Communication Interfaces and Bulletin 1769 DeviceNet™ Scanner Module support your MicroLogix™ controller systems with a variety of features. Any DH-485 compatible device that has an RS-232 port can access any other DH-485 network with these products. Connect to Ethernet networks and upload programs, download programs, communicate between controllers and leverage web server functionality. Program and monitor your MicroLogix system over the DeviceNet network. Upload, download, and monitor programs through the DeviceNet scanner.
