The Allen-Bradley compact GuardLogix 5380 SIL 3 controller allows engineers to scale applications up to and including SIL 3/PLe performance with 1oo2 architecture. The controller’s increased processing power can achieve faster reaction times and shorter safe distances, helping to create smaller machines, save floor space and increase operator efficiencies. Having one high-performance controller for both standard and safety control reduces system complexity and cabinet size and enables engineers to mix and match standard and safety I/O in the same chassis. Embedded Gigabit Ethernet ports provide greater communications capacity for smart devices. This can help engineers meet data-intensive smart manufacturing goals without adding extra hardware.
