Rockwell Automation's Connected Components program
CONNECTED MACHINE COMPONENTS
Connected Components combine a controller with a full suite of compatible components and a dedicated set of application development tools. It speeds the time it takes for machine builders to identify the right control products needed for their specific applications. The Connected Components program is built around a core of Allen-Bradley MicroLogix PLCs, Allen-Bradley PowerFlex drives and an Allen-Bradley PanelView Component HMI. These building blocks include prewritten software code for the PLC that can be modified to help meet the needs of a given machine.
