ControlLogix 101: Looking at PLC Functionality


ControlLogix programmable logic controllers are emerging as next-generation solutions that drive major efficiency gains in industrial settings. Learning the nuances of these systems can give manufacturers an edge. A few especially noteworthy attributes of ControlLogix systems include:

  • The architecture allows for integration of control disciplines through a common software tool set and hardware platform.
  • The system is capable of running at three to four times the speed of a PLC 5 controller for typical ladder applications.
  • The solution allows for programming through relay-ladder logic, structured text, function block and SFC languages.
  • Communications are possible through Ethernet/IP, ControlNet, integrated Sercos motion and analog motion.

The ControlLogix PLC platform has begun to emerge as the future of the PLC sector, and RedVector offers a full suite of coursework to help organizations get their staff up to speed on how to use the technology. Key material covered in the course includes:

  • An introduction to basics.
  • Programming training.
  • Exposure to project structures.
  • Insights into communications configurations.
  • Training in hardware and software configuration and troubleshooting.
