CompactLogix 5380 Controllers

Our CompactLogix™ 5380 Controllers provide increased performance, capacity, productivity, and security to help meet the growing demands of smart machines and equipment for manufacturing. All CompactLogix 5380 controllers use a common design environment, Studio 5000®, as the standard framework. This environment optimizes productivity, reduces time to commission, and manages Integrated Motion over EtherNet/IP for high-speed motion applications and SIL2/PLd safety solutions. These controllers are ideal for applications requiring high-performance communications, I/O, and motion control for up to 32 axes.
