The Advantages of Allen-Bradley RSLogix 5000 in Manufacturing

In the vast world of automated manufacturing programmable logic controller (PLC) are one of the most reliable and effective means of controlling any electro-mechanical process. One of the manufacturing that using PLC is a high strength pultruded fiberglass reinforced polymer composites. Previously this manufacturing was using RSLogix500, but now there is the latest of Rockwell PLC software that is RSLogix5000.

RSLogix5000 is the latest in the Allen-Bradley series of PLC software.

• Intuitive and simple to use.
• Compliant IEC1131-3 interface.
• Structured programming by way of symbols and arrays.
• Instruction set supplying multiple applications.
• Integrates DCS systems or single-loop controllers and dedicated servo or drive systems into one environment.
• Online troubleshooting capabilities.
