By Control Engineering Staff March 1, 2001

Mayfield Heights, O. -Expanding the EtherNet/IP suite, ControlLogix, Flex I/O, and PanelView products are reported to be the first Ethernet-for-automation tools with the capacity to handle real-time control. ControlLogix provides multiple types of control by performing sequential, process, drive, or motion control in any combination. Flex I/O is a modular I/O system for distributed applications. Its components provide the functionality of larger, rack-based I/O devices, but save costly hardware, installation, and space. PanelView Standard graphic terminals offer operator interface solutions with multiple operator input capabilities, monochrome or color displays, high performance functions, and flexible communication options.
