Rockwell Automation introduces ControlLogix 5570 Series PACs

Rockwell Automation introduces Allen-Bradley ControlLogix 5570 Series PACs.

Rockwell Automation introduces Allen-Bradley ControlLogix 5570 Series PACs. This series, which includes ControlLogix: 5571, 5572, 5572S, 5573, 5573S, 5574 and 5575 controllers, features enhanced process, motion, safety and information capabilities, leverage a common design environment and networking of the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system.


For process applications, the ControlLogix controllers significantly improve the amount of information that can be exchanged between the control and supervisory layers, while allowing more control strategies to be executed. This helps boost system performance while enhancing access to real-time information for improved productivity.

For motion applications, the ControlLogix 5570 series controllers provide high-speed axis and trajectory planning making it ideal for synchronizing complex motion applications. Each controller is capable of supporting more than 100 axes of motion and seamlessly integrates through EtherNet/IP and SERCOS network interfaces.

For discrete applications, the ControlLogix controllers provide two to three times faster scan times and a range of memory options from two to 32 MB.

All ControlLogix 5570 Series controllers are equipped with on-board display features that provide enhanced diagnostics and run-time information to help ease troubleshooting and increase uptime. The controllers also have improved security features including improved data integrity and faster data transference with a one-GB secure digital card.

"With faster processing speeds, the new PACs can provide more timely data for improved decision making," said Kevin Zaba, vice president and general manager, Control and Visualization business, Rockwell Automation. "We continue to improve and build out our offerings within our Integrated Architecture system to help a greater range of customers minimize costs, improve data flow and achieve plantwide optimization."

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
