SoftLogix Control Systems – 1789 Controllers provides the new way of programming PLC through an ordinary computer and integration machine control, motion control and information processing




1789 SoftLogix Contoller is part of SoftLogix Control Systems products from Rockwell Automation and Allen Bradley enfold the general function of dedicated programmable controllers in the software and can be run on a commercial operating system. The 1789 SoftLogix was developed based on the Logix platform in integrate machine control, motion control and information processing. One of the benefits is  you can prioritize 32 configurable tasks using the multi-tasking operating system.

1789 Soflogix Controllers can run on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 OS by fulfilling the current more modern of the vast industrial needs. It works with the same Studio 5000 environment. It means the controllers use Studio 5000 Logix Designer software to program the SoftLogix system. 1789 series also includes platform independence for industrial computer, white box and other platform. The controller provides connection to open networks like DeviceNet, ControlNet and EtherNet/IP.

If users familiar with further customization, they still can do make over to the data access of virtual backplane for integration to the third party networks or special modules. The I/O interfaces also supported. The controllers also provide the ability to develop C programs.

There are three models of 1789 Softlogix Controllers: 1789-L60, 1789-L30 and 1789-L10. Each features different amount of controller, memory size, and functions. For the detail to the each features read the following description:


1789-L60 SoftLogix Controllers Features to supports 16 PCI network interface cards

The model of software comes with six SoftLogix 5800 controllers with memory size of 64 MB per controller. It supports 16 PCI network interface cards, 16 1784-SIM modules, 16-slot virtual chassis, and third-party virtual backplane module.


1789-L30 SoftLogix Controllers Features to support two controllers with memory size limit up to 64 MB per controller

The models designed to support two controllers with memory size limit up to 64 MB per controller. The available slot with the controller is five slot virtual chassis. It can hold up to five PCI network interface cards and five 1784-SIM modules. The other supported features including EtherNet/IP support and third party virtual backplane module.


1789-L10 SoftLogix Controllers Features with three slot virtual chassis

If you have one SoftLogix 5800 controller, then the 1789-L10 is the ideal controller with three slot virtual chassis. It offers memory size limit up to 2 MB per controller, one 1784-SIM module and EtherNet/IP support. Remember, that the model does not support for third party virtual backplane module.


1789 SoftLogix Contoller System Requirements

To support its functions as platform in integrate machine control, motion control and information processing, the 1789 SoftLogix Contoller has System Requirements as below:
  • Processor:  Pentium IV 1.6 GHz (IBM-compatible) or greater
  • Operating System: Windows XP SP 1 or higher / Windows 2000 SP 4
  • RAM:Minimum 256 MB
  • Hard Disk Space: 50 MB free space or based on the application requirements
  • Network Requirements:
  • Primary or extended 32-bit PCI slot (one slot per communication card)
  • Supports 1784-PCIDS for DeviceNet
  • Supports 1784-PCICS for ControlNet
  • Video Requirements:
