MicroLogix 1000 Controllers

Rockwell Automation announces that as of June 30, 2017, our Bulletin 1761 MicroLogix™ 1000 Programmable Logic Controller Systems will be discontinued and no longer available for sale. Customers are encouraged to migrate to the Micro820® PLC Systems or Micro830® PLC Systems.

MicroLogix 1200 Controllers

Bulletin 1762 MicroLogix™ 1200 Programmable Logic Controller Systems 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.

MicroLogix Expansion I/O

Our 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.

MicroLogix 1100 Controllers

Our Bulletin 1763 MicroLogix™ 1100 Programmable Logic Controller Systems add embedded EtherNet/IP™, on-line editing, and an LCD panel to the MicroLogix family. The built-in LCD panel 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.

MicroLogix 1500 Controllers

Rockwell Automation announces that as of June 30, 2017, our Bulletin 1764 MicroLogix™ 1500 Programmable Logic Controller Systems will be discontinued and no longer available for sale. Customers are encouraged to migrate to the MicroLogix 1400 PLC Systems or the CompactLogix™ 5370 L1 and L2 Controllers.

MicroLogix 1400 Controllers

Our Bulletin 1766 MicroLogix™ 1400 Programmable Logic Controller Systems build upon critical MicroLogix 1100 features: EtherNet/IP™, on-line editing and a built-in LCD panel. These controllers feature a higher I/O count, faster high-speed counter, pulse train output, enhanced network capabilities and backlight on the LCD panel. 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.

Compact I/O Modules

Bulletin 1769 Compact I/O™ Chassis-Based 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.


MicroLogix controllers support access to DH-485 and Ethernet Network. Connect to Ethernet networks and upload programs,download programs, communicate between controllers and leverage web server functionality.


Use RSLogix 500 programming software from Rockwell Software® to configure your MicroLogix™ programmable controllers.
