The Allen-Bradley GuardLogix controller features a two-processor safety architecture and is rated up to a Safety Integrity Level (SIL) 3 functionality. Suitable for a range of safety applications, the controller is based on the same Logix control engine, networking and I/O as other Integrated Architecture control systems the co. produces. This design commonality, coupled with the use of RSLogix 5000 software, is said to allow for better sharing of information, reduced training costs and faster programming and commissioning. The architecture features multidisciplined control across process, discrete, motion, drive and safety applications, as well as seamless connectivity to plant-wide information systems. It allows users to program and manage the safety control system using familiar standard control methods, the co. says. Safety memory can be read by standard logic and external devices such as HMIs and other controllers.
