Controller for smart devices in manufacturing, industrial operations
Rockwell Automation’s Allen-Bradley ControlLogix 5580 controller is designed to enable faster system performance for smart devices in manufacturing and industrial operations. The ControlLogix 5580 controller provides up to 45% more application capacity and includes an embedded 1GB Ethernet port to support communications, I/O and applications with up to 256 axes of motion. In addition, the product selection process is easier with the ControlLogix 5580 controller because users can now select the appropriate model using the total number of Ethernet nodes required. A single ControlLogix 5580 controller can support up to 300 Ethernet nodes. The controller also supports enhanced security as part of a defense-in-depth approach to help protect facilities, assets and intellectual property. The controller incorporates advanced security technologies and software features, such as digitally signed and encrypted firmware, change detection and audit logging.
