CompactLogix 5380 Controllers

Our CompactLogix™ and Compact GuardLogix® 5380 controllers provide higher performance, increased capacity, improved productivity and enhanced security to help meet the growing demands of smart machines and equipment for manufacturing. All standard and safety controllers use a modern programming environment, Studio 5000 Logix Designer® application, to allow users to work collaboratively to design and maintain their systems. This common environment optimizes efficiency, reduces time to commission and manages integrated motion over EtherNet/IP™ for high-speed motion applications and up to SIL 3/PLe safety solutions. These controllers are ideal for applications requiring high-performance communications, I/O and motion control for up to 32 axes.
