The Allen-Bradley CompactLogix 5370 programmable automation controllers (PACs) from Rockwell Automation bring machine builders a high-performance, right-sized integrated motion control solution for machine applications. The 5370 series, which includes the 5370 L1, L2 and L3 controllers, features the same processing speed upgrades seen in the ControlLogix 5570 series launched in 2011. The new controllers offer users more than twice the processing speeds to boost system performance and enhance access to real-time information for improved productivity, notes the company. With user memory in the CompactLogix 5370 series of PACs ranging from 384KB to 3MB, the controllers are ideal for a variety of applications, including sorting, labeling and packaging, blending, batching and filling. The new CompactLogix 5370 controllers are fully compatible with application code generated for earlier generation CompactLogix products, requiring only a simple catalog number change in the programming software to convert.
