Rockwell Automation releases ControlLogix 5580 controller

November 21, 2015 - Rockwell Automation releases ControlLogix 5580 controller that includes an embedded 1-gigabit Ethernet port to support high-performance communications, I/O and applications with up to 256 axes of motion.

In addition, the product selection process is easier with the ControlLogix 5580 controller because users can now select the appropriate model using the total number of Ethernet nodes required. A single ControlLogix 5580 controller can support up to 300 Ethernet nodes.

The controller also supports enhanced security as part of a defense-in-depth approach to help protect facilities, assets and intellectual property. The controller incorporates advanced security technologies and software features, such as digitally signed and encrypted firmware, change detection and audit logging.

Engineers can use the Rockwell Software Studio 5000 design software to configure the ControlLogix 5580 controller and develop all elements of their control system. Data can be defined once, and then easily accessed and re-used across the entire Studio 5000 environment to speed system development and commissioning.
