Rockwell Automation machine safety portfolio aims to simplify machine designs

Friday December 15, 2017
Dec. 15, 2017 - Rockwell Automation says it has enhanced its machine safety portfolio to include a range of input, logic and output devices designed to help companies make safety a core function of smart machines.

The Rockwell Automation machine safety portfolio now includes the Allen-Bradley GuardLogix 5580 controller, Compact GuardLogix 5380 controller, and Compact 5000 safety I/O. The portfolio also has new advanced safety functionality with the Allen Bradley Kinetix 5700 servo drive. All of the devices are designed to communicate over EtherNet/IP. The portfolio also includes smart safety devices such as safety relays and light curtains that can be connected via the GuardLink safety-based communications protocol, helping users to identify which device was activated during a production stoppage, rather than manually investigating every device on a machine or line.
