Rockwell Automation Control with scalable safety system levels
The Allen-Bradley GuardLogix 5580 and compact GuardLogix 5380 controllers can be scaled from safety system levels SIL 2/PLd to SIL 3/PLe. This scalability can help engineers optimize a safety system design while adhering to the latest machine safety regulations. Engineers also can consolidate the number of controllers they use in complex machines by having a single high-performance controller for both standard and safety control. The controllers’ embedded Gigabit Ethernet provides greater communications capacity to support the growing number of smart devices, helping to meet data-intensive smart-manufacturing goals without adding extra hardware.
