Application development software for micro PLCs

Paul Boughton

Rockwell Automation is offering free RSLogix Micro Starter Lite software for creating, modifying and monitoring application programs for the cost-effective Allen-Bradley Micrologix 1000 and Micrologix 1100 programmable controllers. The application development software will help users to save time and increase productivity by streamlining the development and deployment processes.
According to Rockwell Automation, the software provides Micrologix 1100 users with the ability to modify application programs while machinery is operating. The Micrologix 1000 and Micrologix 1100 controllers share a common architecture and are compatible with the Allen-Bradley Panelview family of operator interface devices. The RSLogix Micro Starter Lite programming software therefore enables users to integrate Rockwell Automation controllers, drives and operator interface products more easily into existing process architectures, thereby helping to reduce installation and configuration costs.
Paul Gieschen, marketing director for components products at Rockwell Automation, comments: "The RSLogix Micro Starter Lite software allows users of Micrologix 1000 and Micrologix 1100 controllers to fully maximise the efficiency and performance of their machines. The software helps our customers reduce costs and increase uptime, especially in today's global economy where innovation and efficiency are critical."
