SoftLogix Control System
Our SoftLogix™ controllers use a common control engine with a common development environment to provide high performance in an easy-to-use environment. A typical SoftLogix system uses a virtual chassis application that houses controllers and communication modules, which interface with other Logix controllers and I/O modules. I/O simulator modules in the virtual chassis make application debugging and system start-up easier.
Rockwell Automation® Integrated Architecture Solutions provide the foundation to drive plantwide optimization efficiently and effectively, enabling you to respond competitively to the economy and changes in consumer demand.
Bulletin 1789 SoftLogix™ Controllers are based on the Logix platform. They seamlessly integrate machine control, motion control, and information processing. They take the control functions normally found in dedicated programmable controllers, encapsulate those functions in software and run them on a commercial operating system. The multi-tasking operating system supports 32 configurable tasks that you can prioritize.
Use Bulletin 1784 Communication Cards with your SoftLogix™ controllers to monitor and control I/O on ControlNet™ or DeviceNet™ networks. Use your own Ethernet card to communicate over EtherNet/IP™ networks. Use the built-in serial port on your SoftLogix controller to communicate over RS-232 serial networks. Install multiple communication interfaces into the SoftLogix PC to configure a gateway to bridge or route control and information data between different networks.
Use the Studio 5000 Automation Engineering and Design environment from Rockwell Software® to design and configure your SoftLogix™ system.
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 RSNetWorx configuration software and RSLinx communication software.
Additional software products are available from Rockwell Software.
