Courtesy: Rockwell AutomationThe Allen-Bradley Armor GuardLogix programmable automation controller (PAC), by Rockwell Automation provides users with multidisciplined control in a controller that can be installed directly on-machine.

The Armor GuardLogix PAC is designed to move the industrial controls and hardware closer to the application or onto the machine, minimizing the number of components in the cabinet. This reduces wiring time while helping increase uptime as maintenance and repair is made faster with pre-configured, quick connect systems and simplified wiring layouts.

The Armor GuardLogix PAC is IP67, SIL 3, PL(e), CAT 4 rated with 4 MB of application code storage space with two full-featured EtherNet/IP device-level ring (DLR) capable connections.

The Armor GuardLogix PAC provides access to the controller-mode switch, USB port, secure digital (SD) card and power-supply switch, along with 24 V dc power pass-through to supply power to other On‑Machine products. This feature allows power to be routed from one machine device or module to another, eliminating the need for a power supply for each device and simplifying the overall system architecture. Mounting tabs can be rotated vertically or horizontally, giving users flexibility on where and how the product can be mounted. The controller is programmed in the Rockwell Software Studio 5000 design and engineering environment.
