Nashville, TN – PLC to PLC communications will be easier for machine builders, system integrators, and end-users as a result of features that Molex Inc . added to the BradCommunications SST PLC communication modules.
The changes elimate latter logic programming from most applications by supporting Add-On Profiles for easy intrgration into ControlLogix using Rockwell Automation RSLogix 5000 software and Remote Link Library functionality, which allows remote configuration and diagnostics using the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture.
Faster configurations, improved diagnostics, and enhanced module data display are among benefits, Molex says. Molex provide more information about PLC backplane . The AS-I module went through AS-Inteface conformance testing to comply with AS-I specification 3.0.
The company also showed the
