Free software reduces installation costs

12 February 2010

Rockwell Automation is offering downloadable application development software free to allow users to create, modify and monitor application programs for Allen-Bradley MicroLogix controllers

Designed for the MicroLogix 1000 and MicroLogix 1100 programmable controllers, the Rockwell Software RSLogix Micro Starter Lite software cost effectively streamlines users’ overall development and deployment processes, helping to save time and increase productivity.

The software provides MicroLogix 1100 users 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. The RSLogix Micro Starter Lite 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 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 today’s global economy where innovation and efficiency are critical.”

Supporting the full family of MicroLogix controllers, RSLogix Micro programming software allows users to cost-effectively create, modify and monitor application programs. Please visit www.rockwellautomation.com/go/rslogixlite to download the free RSLogix Micro Starter Lite software. The software is available in the English and Chinese languages.
