Bulletin 1789 SoftLogix Programmable Automation Controllers

SoftLogix Controllers

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.
