CompactLogix Control Systems

Bulletin 1768, 1769 CompactLogix Programmable Automation Control Systems

Our CompactLogix™ and Compact GuardLogix® controllers use a common control engine with a common development environment to provide mid-range application control in an easy-to-use environment. Tight integration between the programming software, controller and I/O modules reduces development time and cost at commissioning and during normal operation. This commonality provides cost-effective integration of a machine or safety application into a plant-wide control system because it integrates safety, motion, discrete and drive capabilities in a single controller.

Features

  • High functionality in an economical platform
  • DIN rail or panel mount for flexible installation
  • Packaged controllers offer embedded I/O to lower costs and simplify configuration
  • Analog, digital and specialty modules cover a wide range of applications
  • Advanced system connectivity to EtherNet/IP™ networks for CompactLogix™ 5370 platforms
  • Full support for standard EtherNet/IP networks and limited support for ControlNet™ and DeviceNet™ networks across all CompactLogix platforms
  • Integrated safety and motion capabilities in a single controller

5370 CompactLogix Controllers

Bulletin 1769 CompactLogix™ 5370 Controllers are ideal for small to mid-size machines and provide the benefits of Integrated Architecture™ for lower-cost machines. When combined with Kinetix® 350 servo drives, these controllers provide a strong motion solution for customers who require high performance in a compact and affordable package. These controllers expand on the scalability of the Logix family and share common features across all three platforms, including support for Integrated Motion on EtherNet/IP™ and Device Level Ring (DLR) for enhanced network resiliency.

1768 CompactLogix 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.

1769 CompactLogix Controllers

Bulletin 1769 CompactLogix controllers are ideal for small to mid-size control applications that don’t require motion or safety functionality. These controllers offer integrated serial, EtherNet/IP, or ControlNet channels; and modular DeviceNet communications.

Compact I/O Modules

The Bulletin 1769 Compact I/O™ modules can be used as local and distributed I/O for a CompactLogix or MicroLogix™ 1500 controller. Select from a variety of digital, analog and specialty modules. The 16- and 32-point modules provide high-density I/O in a small package. A built-in removable terminal block provides connections to I/O sensors and actuators. I/O wiring can be routed from beneath the module to the I/O terminals.

POINT I/O Modules

Bulletin 1734 POINT I/O™ offers digital, analog, and specialty I/O, as well as POINT Guard safety-rated I/O, with one to eight points per module. You can mix standard and safety I/O in the same system. Comprehensive diagnostics and configurable features make POINT I/O easy to apply.

Motion

Bulletin 1769 CompactLogix 5370 controllers support Integrated Motion on EtherNet/IP. The CompactLogix 1768-L4x controllers and the Compact GuardLogix 1768-L4xS controllers support integrated motion through the 1768 SERCOS™ interface modules.

Communications

Bulletin 1768 and 1769 CompactLogix and Compact GuardLogix communication modules help you configure your system to exchange information between operating systems and a range of devices and platforms. You can select a CompactLogix or Compact GuardLogix controller with built-in communication ports, or select a coordinating communications module for the networks that meet your needs.

Power Supplies

Bulletin 1768 CompactLogix Power Supplies and Bulletin 1769 Compact I/O Expansion Power Supplies help keep your system running smoothly. Select power supplies based on the controller and the number of additional I/O banks you're using. Packaged controllers (1769-L23x, 1769-L16, 1769-L18, 1769-L24, 1769-L27) do not require power supplies because each controller package includes an integrated power supply.

Software

Use RSLogix 5000 programming software from Rockwell Software® to design and configure your system with 1748-L4x, 1768-L4xS, 1769-L3x, or 1769-L23x controllers.

Use the Studio 5000 Automation Engineering and Design environment from Rockell Software to design and configure your system with 5370 controllers.

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
