All Logix controllers provide DIN-rail mounting convenient for panel installation. Logix controllers can be extended using remote I/O modules, from 144 I/O with a MicroLogix 1100 CPU to over 128,000 I/O for a ControlLogix 5580 processor.
CompactLogix and ControlLogix processors have options for integrated safety and motion and can be networked with up to 250 nodes, such as motion and robot controllers via Ethernet/IP. The specialized, high-reliability GuardLogix models can be used to perform monitoring and actuation in SIL2 and SIL3 safety systems.
There are many types of I/O subsystems that are possible with Logix controllers.
MicroLogix 800 I/O can range from plug-in modules to high-density I/O modules.
CompactLogix and ControlLogix I/O range from directly connected to the processor via an I/O rack or piggyback connection to full remote I/O capability through Ethernet/IP connections to subsystems like FlexIO for panel-mounted I/O or PointIO for local machine-mounted I/O.
