Safety Programmable Controllers

Our Safety PLC systems bring the benefits of traditional PLC systems to complex safety applications, replacing the hard-wired relay systems normally required to bring automated processes to a safe state. Safety PLCs allow standard and safety-related programs to reside in a single controller chassis, providing flexibility in programming as well as a familiar and easy-to-use environment for programmers. Our safety controller solutions provide open and integrated control that will help to ensure machine safety and protect your current control investments.

1756 GuardLogix Integrated Safety System

Bulletin 1756 GuardLogix Integrated Safety System

GuardLogix® Integrated Safety Systems provide the benefits of standard ControlLogix® systems, plus safety features that support SIL 3 safety applications. GuardLogix safety controllers offer integrated safety, discrete, motion, drive and process control, as well as seamless connectivity to plant-wide information systems, all in the same controller. Use EtherNet/IP™ or ControlNet™ networks for safety interlocking between GuardLogix controllers. Connect field devices over EtherNet/IP or DeviceNet™ networks.

1756 GuardLogix Safety Controllers

Bulletin 1756 GuardLogix Safety Programmable Automation Controllers

Bulletin 1756 GuardLogix® Safety Controllers have a two-processor architecture (1oo2) and are suitable for SIL 3 PLe applications. As part of the Rockwell Automation® Integrated Architecture™ system, these controllers use RSLogix™ 5000 programming software (L6 models) and the Studio 5000™ environment (L7 models). They offer common information capabilities and support CIP Safety over EtherNet/IP™ and ControlNet™ networks. These high-performance controllers provide a common control engine with a common development environment for all control disciplines. Consider these controllers for more sophisticated machines and for connectivity to business systems.

1768 Compact GuardLogix Safety System

Bulletin 1768 Compact GuardLogix Safety System

Our GuardLogix® controller is a CompactLogix™ controller that also provides safety control. As part of the Logix family, Compact GuardLogix controllers use a common control engine with a common development environment to provide high performance multi-discipline control for SIL 3 safety applications. GuardLogix Safety PACs offer integrated safety, discrete, motion, drive and process control, as well as seamless connectivity to plant-wide information systems, all in the same controller. Use EtherNet/IP™ or ControlNet™ networks for safety interlocking between GuardLogix controllers. Connect field devices over EtherNet/IP or DeviceNet™ networks.

1768 CompactLogix Controllers

Bulletin 1768 CompactLogix L4x, L4xS Programmable Automation Controllers

Bulletin 1768 CompactLogix™ and Compact GuardLogix® controllers are ideal for small to mid-size applications that require safety, motion, and/or complex communications. These controllers offer integrated serial, EtherNet/IP™ or ControlNet™ channels, and modular DeviceNet™ communications. They support as many as 30 I/O modules and as many as 16 motion axes.

1752 SmartGuard 600 Controllers with Safety

Bulletin 1752 SmartGuard 600  Programmable Logic Controllers with Safety

Bulletin 1752 SmartGuard™ 600 safety controllers feature 16 safety-rated inputs, 8 safety-rated outputs, 4 pulse test sources and an optional EtherNet/IP™ port. Each controller also includes a DeviceNet™ connection to support both standard CIP and CIP safety. You can configure and program on EtherNet/IP, on DeviceNet or through the built-in USB port. These small, cost-effective intelligent controllers can perform safety interlocking between GuardLogix® or other SmartGuard safety controllers.
