ControlLogix 5570 Series PACs. The ControlLogix 5570 Series of programmable automation controllers from Rockwell Automation provide production control for the full range of automation disciplines using one control architecture. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.Manufacturers can achieve higher processing speed with the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix 5570 Series programmable automation controllers (PACs) from Rockwell Automation. This new series, which include the ControlLogix 5571, 5572, 5572S, 5573, 5573S, 5574, and 5575 controllers, features enhanced process, motion, safety, and information capabilities, leveraging a common design environment and networking of the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system.

For process applications, new ControlLogix controllers significantly improve the amount of information that can be exchanged between the control and supervisory layers, while allowing more control strategies to be executed. This helps boost system performance while enhancing access to real-time information for improved productivity.

For motion applications, the ControlLogix 5570 series controllers provide high-speed axis and trajectory planning, making them ideal for synchronizing complex motion applications. Each controller is capable of supporting more than 100 axes of motion and seamlessly integrates through EtherNet/IP and SERCOS network interfaces.

For discrete applications, the new ControlLogix controllers provide two to three times faster scan times and a range of memory options from two to 32 MB. Rockwell Automation will continue the line expansion in December with the Allen-Bradley GuardLogix 5572S and 5573S controllers.

Featuring the same automation capabilities as the ControlLogix platform, these new GuardLogix controllers provide safety-rated control for safety-related functions up to and including SIL3, PLe CAT IV. The GuardLogix PACs will further benefit from the introduction of the new POINTGuard SIL3 analog input module designed to provide automation and safety functionality in the POINT I/O system. Users can apply the POINT Guard analog input module to measure temperature, pressure, and flow rate for analog safety functions. All 5570 series controllers are equipped with on-board display features for enhanced diagnostics and run-time information to help ease troubleshooting and increase uptime. The controllers have improved security features including improved data integrity and faster data transference.
