Large Control Systems

Our Large Control Systems fit your most demanding application needs. They offer modular architectures and a range of I/O and network options. These powerful control solutions deliver world-class capabilities for all disciplines, from process to safety to motion. Designed for distributed or supervisory control applications, our large programmable automation controllers (PACs) and programmable logic controllers (PLC) provide exceptional reliability and performance.
  1756 CONTROLLOGIX CONTROL SYSTEM
ControlLogix® systems use a common control engine with a common development environment to provide high performance in an easy-to-use environment. Tight integration between the programming software, controller, and I/O modules reduces development time and cost at commissioning and during normal operation. You can perform standard and safety control in the same chassis for a truly integrated system. Leverage the high-availability and extreme environment capabilities to meet your application needs.

Features
  • Provides premier high-speed, high-performance, multi-disciplined application control
  • Provides fully redundant controller architecture with bumpless switchover and high availability
  • Provides modular and scalable network communications
  • Offers broadcast range of communication and I/O options
  • Provides time-synchronization capabilities for first fault, process sequencing and other applications
  • Offers select products that are TÜV-certified for use in SIL 2 and SIL 3applications
 1756 GuardLogix Integrated Safety System
GuardLogix® Integrated Safety Systems provide the benefits of standard ControlLogix® systems, plus safety features that support SIL 3 safety applications. GuardLogix safety controllers offer integrated safety, discrete, motion, drive and process control, as well as seamless connectivity to plant-wide information systems, all in the same controller. Use EtherNet/IP™ or ControlNet™ networks for safety interlocking between GuardLogix controllers. Connect field devices over EtherNet/IP or DeviceNet™ networks.

Features
  • Provide safety and integrated motion in the same chassis
