The ControlLogix CIP Safety I/O modules are TÜV certified for use in safety applications up to SIL 3 and PLe, Cat. 4. They can be selected with conformal coating options for added protection against environmental stresses.
The three new FLEX 5000 safety I/O modules provide distributed safety I/O for the Allen-Bradley Compact GuardLogix 5380 and GuardLogix 5580 controllers. The safety modules can be combined with FLEX 5000 standard I/O modules to achieve integrated safety and control in one distributed I/O platform.
The ArmorView Plus 7 graphic terminal has an IP66 rating, providing ingress protection against dust and high-volume pressurized water. It’s available in several configurations, allowing push buttons and multi-position selector switches on the terminal to be customized to each user’s needs.

SA (Sensor/Actuator) power provides field power for 5069 Compact I/O modules and field-side devices that are connected to them. Field-side power is provided through the SA Power connection and can be either DC or AC depending on the IO modules that are connected immediately afterwards. SA Power is passed from controller to I/O modules unless a 5069-FPD is used.

Production facilities can contain thousands of technologies from different vendors. Cybersecurity threats only need to exploit one of them to steal trade secrets, stop production or even harm workers. To better secure today’s complex and often vulnerable production operations, the ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance recently announced Rockwell Automation as a founding member.
An EtherChannel (or port group) is a group of two or more Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet switch ports bundled into a single logical link, creating a higher bandwidth link between two switches. Each EtherChannel can consist of up to eight compatible, configured Ethernet ports. The switch supports up to six EtherChannels.
With Flex Links, you define an active uplink interface and a backup uplink interface. The figure below shows the process by which Flex Links converge a redundant star topology.
Food and pharmaceutical makers can better protect the integrity of their products using new hygienic industrial control hardware from Rockwell Automation. The new Allen-Bradley Kinetix VPH hygienic servo motors and a new stainless-steel version of the Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 7 graphic terminal both help minimize contamination during production and ease compliance.
