This programmable controller is installed directly on-machine
The Allen-Bradley Armor GuardLogix programmable automation controller (PAC) can be installed directly on-machine, simplifying wiring layouts and decreasing maintenance requirements. This controller has four megabytes of internal storage space for application code and features two Ethernet/IP device-level-ring (DLR) capable connections. The Armor GuardLogix PAC provides access to the controller-mode switch, USB port, secure digital (SD) card and power-supply switch, along with 24 V d.c. power pass-through to supply power to other on-machine products. This feature allows power to be routed from one machine device or module to another, eliminating the need for a power supply for each device. Mounting tabs can be rotated vertically or horizontally. — Rockwell Automation, Milwaukee, Wisc.
