Allen-Bradley CompactLogix 5370 programmable automation controllers bring a high-performance, right-sized integrated motion control solution for machine applications, providing the extensive capabilities of the Logix Control Platform in a small, integrated and cost-effective package. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.Allen-Bradley CompactLogix 5370 series PACs, which includes the CompactLogix 5370 L1, L2, and L3 controllers, features enhanced performance and motion capabilities while leveraging the common design and networking environment of the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system. When used with the Allen-Bradley Kinetix 350 servo drive, the CompactLogix 5370 series provides performance and cost competitiveness for machine builders requiring up to 16 axes of complex motion, all on one standard industrial network EtherNet/IP. The EtherNet/IP connectivity offers up to 250% more communication bandwidth than previous CompactLogix controllers, helping enable more network devices and higher performance control.

The CompactLogix 5370 series controllers offer users more than twice the processing speeds to boost system performance and enhance access to real-time information for improved productivity. With user memory in the CompactLogix 5370 series of PACs ranging from 384 KB to 3 MB, these controllers are ideal for a variety of applications, including sorting, labeling and packaging, blending, batching, and filling. Key features of the three new controllers include: The CompactLogix 5370 L1 controller is the smallest, packaged-style controller in the Logix Control Platform. It uses Point I/O modules as its local I/O, manages integration motion for up to two axes, and provides cost-effective price positioning for simple machine control. The CompactLogix 5370 L2 controller is 40% smaller than the previous generation and supports up to four axes of integrated motion.

From small standalone equipment to higher performance applications, these controllers are ideal for assembly machines, hoisting systems, process skids, indexing tables, and packaging. The CompactLogix 5370 L3 controller supports up to 16 axes of integrated motion on EtherNet/IP. The No Stored Energy version of the CompactLogix 5370 L3 controller offers additional features for hazardous environments found in industries such as mining, and oil and gas.
