Courtesy: Rockwell AutomationRockwell Automation has released two upgrades in Allen-Bradley IntelliCenter software – IntelliCenter Integration Assistant and IntelliCenter Energy – to accelerate the configuration time and enhance end users’ data-driven energy decisions.

With IntelliCenter Integration Assistant, users can integrate their IntelliCenter Motor Control Centers (MCCs) into their Rockwell Software RSLogix 5000 programming software. This feature reduces programming time by automatically adding the Allen-Bradley Centerline MCC devices to the RSLogix 5000 I/O tree. In addition, Integration Assistant also takes advantage of existing premier integration features to automatically create controller tags and IP address configuration in RSLogix 5000 software, reducing errors and the time it takes to configure the intelligent devices.

IntelliCenter Integration Assistant enables faster installation and commissioning time, providing real-time, device-level information and higher productivity. IntelliCenter Energy offers a pre-configured setup of FactoryTalk EnergyMetrix software for intelligent motor control devices in the MCC, including variable speed drives, overload relays and SMCs. In addition, users can view energy consumption at the device level directly from IntelliCenter software. With IntelliCenter Energy, it becomes easier to monitor and manage energy usage in the industrial facility for cost savings, and allows for easy integration of IntelliCenter MCCs into plantwide energy-management systems.
