Rockwell Automation offers free MicroLogix software
The software provides users of MicroLogix 1100 controllers with the ability to modify application programs while machinery is operating. The MicroLogix 1000 and MicroLogix 1100 controllers share a common architecture and are compatible with the Allen-Bradley PanelView family of operator interface devices. This programming software allows users to more easily integrate Rockwell Automation controllers, drives and operator interface products into their existing process architecture, helping reduce installation and configuration costs.
The compact, cost-effective MicroLogix 1000 programmable controller can handle a wide variety of demanding control applications at 32 I/O or below, while using less space than a full-size controller. With online editing and a built-in 10/100 Mbps EtherNet/IP port for peer-to-peer messaging, the MicroLogix 1100 controller offers greater connectivity and application coverage to the MicroLogix controller family. Its built-in LCD screen displays controller status, I/O status and simple operator messages.
The RSLogix Micro Starter Lite software allows users of MicroLogix 1000 and MicroLogix 1100 controllers to fully maximize the efficiency and performance of their machines, said Paul Gieschen, marketing director for Components Products at Rockwell Automation. The software helps our customers reduce costs and increase uptime, especially in todays global economy where innovation and efficiency are critical.
