Courtesy: Rockwell AutomationThe Allen-Bradley Compact GuardLogix 5370 controller from Rockwell Automation is designed to combine networks and controllers for safety and motion in applications with up to 16 axes. This makes it easier to design safety into a wide range of standard and custom machines, and results in simpler system architectures. The Compact GuardLogix 5370 controller also helps users meet global safety standards. When used in combination with the Allen-Bradley Kinetix 5500 servo drive or the Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 527 AC drive, users have integrated safe torque off (STO) on EtherNet/IP. The Rockwell Software Studio 5000 software is used to configure the Compact GuardLogix 5370 controller and develop all elements of their control system.

Data can be defined once, and then accessed and re-used across different machine types to speed system development and commissioning. In addition, a single programming environment for both safety and standard control removes the need to manually manage separate standard and safety memory, or partition logic to isolate safety. The GuardLogix 5370 controller also includes dual Ethernet ports to support both linear and device-level-ring (DLR) network topologies.
