Latest steps forward in integrated motor drive and control systems unveiled

Rockwell has developed a full portfolio of industrial ethernet managed switches, in cooperation with Cisco.

According to Peter Vorley, business leader, integrated architecture, at Rockwell Automation, use of Ethernet means the company can move vast amounts of data round the whole network.

“Most of our customers tell us they want to go to a single network standard, if they can,” he states.

The new switch can be configured using Allen-Bradley RSLogix 5000 programming software. It automatically generates Logix tags for integrated diagnostics, and include FactoryTalk View faceplates for status monitoring and alarming. The switch also comprises a removable compact flash card for one-step device replacement and default configurations.
