Panel Builder System Integrator

July 22, 2019

Allen-Bradley's Bulletin 1769 CompactLogix 5370 Controllers are part of the Integrated Architecture system. These controllers include integrated safety, and use the same programming software, network protocol, and information capabilities as all Logix controllers. This provides a common development environment for all control disciplines. Consistent tools and features help users to lower engineering investment costs, ease diagnostics and troubleshooting, and speed up time to market for small to mid-size applications.

Features

  • Ideal for small, to mid-size applications that require low axis motion and I/O point counts
  • Offers support for Integrated Motion over EtherNet/IP™ for maximized scalability
  • Provides support for Device Level Ring (DLR) network topologies to help increase network resiliency
  • Removes the need for lithium batteries with built-in energy storage
  • Includes up to a 2-GB secure digital (SD) card for fast program save and restore
  • Offers a smaller form factor for maximized cabinet space
  • Supports up to 2 axes Kinematics for simple articulated robotics
  • Offers open socket capability that allows support for Modbus TCP as well as devices such as printers, barcode readers and servers
  • Provides ability to connect with scaled HMI options from the PanelView™ Plus portfolio to PanelView 800 graphic terminals for simple features
  • Available with conformal coating

Compact GuardLogix® Safety Controllers

  • Provides integrated safety and integrated motion in a single controller
  • Supports integrated safety up to SIL 3, PLe CAT 4

On-Machine Controllers

  • Delivers standard, safety and motion control for On-Machine™ applications
  • Provides up to 16 axes of Integrated Motion over EtherNet/IP
  • Minimizes hardware in the control cabinet with placement directly on the machine
  • Helps protect against dust and water with IP67-rated wash down protection
  • Offers integrated safety control up to SIL 3, PLe, CAT 4 in an On-Machine version

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.

Coming Soon: The new EPLAN Pro Panel, Version 2.8, Virtual control cabinet engineering – fully matured

The new EPLAN Pro Panel, Version 2.8 is making its first big appearance at the SPS IPC Drives. The software for virtual 3D control cabinet engineering is characterised by its expanded flexibility, surprising users with a brand new 4K-capable user interface. It’s also causing decision-makers to sit up and take notice: during live, joint presentations in Nuremberg, EPLAN and Rittal will be introducing a whole series of innovations in the context of control cabinet engineering.

These include complementary software solutions for engineering and preplanning operations, innovative system technology for housings, power distribution and climate-control systems, automation technologies, and digital assistance systems for integrated automation of manufacturing processes. EPLAN and Rittal are thereby positioning themselves as solutions providers offering integrated solutions for optimising processes in control cabinet engineering: combined machine/hardware and software solutions, product-accompanying data and comprehensive on-site process integration services for customers.
