Milwaukee, WI — Rockwell Automation has released the newest member of the Allen-Bradley MicroLogix family of programmable controllers—the MicroLogix 1400. This controller is said to provide end users and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with a higher I/O count, faster high-speed counter and pulse train output (PTO). The MicroLogix 1400 controller builds upon the features of the MicroLogix 1100 controller, featuring online editing, EtherNet/IP and an embedded LCD.
“An embedded Ethernet port and two embedded serial ports with advanced communication protocols provide the customer a valuable solution in many applications,” said Seung Ju Lee, MicroLogix product manager, Rockwell Automation.
This new family of controllers is available with an embedded I/O count of up to 38, and can support up to seven additional I/O modules for a maximum of 144 discrete I/O points.
