Product Overview

CompactlLogix System Overview

The CompactLogix system is designed to provide a Logix solution for small and mid-size applications. Typically, these applications are machine-level control applications. A simple system can consist of a standalone controller with a single bank of I/O modules and DeviceNet communication. A more complex system may include other networks, motion control, and safety control.


System Components

CompactLogix system components include:

Component Description
CompactLogix Controllers • Options include: CompactLogix packed controllers, modular controllers, integrated motion controllers, and GuardLogix safety controllers.
• User memory ranges from 0.5 to 3 MB standard, plus 0.5 to 1 MB safety, depending on controller type.
• CompactFlash cards offer nonvolatile memory (flash) to permanently store a user program and tag data.
CompactLogix Communication Modules • Options include: EtherNet/IP, ControlNet, DeviceNet, DH-485, and Serial communication modules.
• Install multiple communication-interface modules into the CompactLogix backplane to configure a gateway to bridge or route control and information data between different networks.
CompactLogix Integrated Motion Modules • SERCOS interface for 1768 modules.
CompactLogix I/O Modules • Options include: digital, analog, thermocouple, RTD, motion, and specialty modules.
• Densities range from 4 to 32 points per module.
• Remote terminal blocks (RTBs), interface modules (IFMs), or I/O module-ready cables are used for connecting to each I/O module.
• Modules are rate IP20, Class I, Division 2/Zone 2.
CompactLogix Power Supplies • Packaged controllers have an internal power supply.
• Other modules require one power supply for the controller and local I/O, and one power supply for each additional bank of I/O modules.

Optional system components include:
