Rockwell controller family offers customizable solution for nano- and micro-level applications.
At Interpack 2011 in Dusseldorf, Germany, Rockwell Automation introduced its latest family of Allen-Bradley Micro800 component-class micro programmable controllers. Designed for standalone machine applications with fewer than 48 I/O, the initial launch consists of two controllers – the Allen-Bradley Micro810 and Micro830 controllers. The controllers offer a range of plug-in modules for analog/digital I/O, communications and expanded memory. The new controller family also offers removable terminal blocks (most models) and simplified communication via point-to-point data exchange. Both controllers will be available later this year, the company says.
