PLC-5 Control System
Bulletin 1785 PLC-5® programmable logic controllers (PLCs) offer flexibility in programming, network, and I/O. Designed for larger sequential and regulatory control applications with specialized I/O requirements, PLC-5 control systems bring together existing and new systems through networks such as EtherNet/IP™, ControlNet™, and DeviceNet™. Embedded network ports in PLC-5 controllers enable connectivity to a wide range of devices including MicroLogix™, SLC™ 500, CompactLogix™, and ControlLogix® controllers, letting you expand your control system without additional training investments.
Certifications apply when product is marked. See our Product Certification site for Declarations of Conformity, certificates and other certification details.
Our Migration Solutions programs and services will help you leverage the investments you've made in knowledge and equipment when you decide it's time to migrate.
Bulletin 1785 PLC-5® controllers are available in a range of I/O capacity and memory sizes. Our controllers have on-board Universal Remote I/O scanner ports and optional communication modules. You can connect our controllers in a variety of networks for distributed processing and I/O control. Selected models of PLC-5 controllers have on-board ports for Ethernet™, ControlNet™, or Extended Local I/O communication.
The PLC-5® system requires a 1771 chassis to contain the various modules. Chassis are available in sizes up to 16-slots to fit your application requirements. The backplane provides a communication path between the I/O modules and either the controller or the I/O communication adapter module.
Bulletin 1771 PLC-5® Communication Modules let you add another communication port to the PLC-5 controller. This adds network capability beyond the available on-board ports.
Bulletin 1771 Universal I/O provides a full range of digital, analog, and specialty I/O for a wide variety of applications. Use Universal I/O modules in a local I/O chassis of a PLC-5® system. Or, use an I/O communication adapter module to place I/O in a chassis at a location remote from the controller.
Bulletin 1771 PLC-5® power supplies provide 5V DC to power installed controllers or communication adapters and I/O modules in a 1771 chassis. Both chassis-based and stand-alone power supplies are available. They support a range of AC and DC input voltages.
Use RSLogix 5 programming software to program your PLC-5® system. Programs developed with A.I. Series PLC-5 software and 6200 software can be reused in RSLogix 5 software.
The controllers and modules you select, along with your network configuration, determine what additional software packages you need to configure and program your system. Additional required software may include:
