PREMIER Completes Over 150 PLC-5 to ControlLogix Upgrades!
PREMIER completed its 150th PLC-5 retrofit/upgrade earlier this year and is rapidly marching towards 200 as purchase orders for these services continue to increase in the 3rd quarter of
2017! Due to the impending date of obsolescence without support from Rockwell Automation and the high cost of replacement parts, customers are looking not only to remove the risks of hardware and system failure, but also improve operational efficiency through the deployment of improved technology.
These upgrades have been done in several different ways including:
Complete I/O replacements using the Allen Bradley migration kits or by completely re-wiring
For more information on the migration kits see Migration Kits
Processor only upgrades retaining 1771 I/O racks on Remote I/O or ControlNet
Conversions to Rockwell Automation PlantPAx® in lieu of straight conversions
Collapsing multiple PLC-5’s and/or SLC500’s into one ControlLogix system
PLC-5 to ControlLogix upgrade concurrent with Foxboro Integrator 30 to FDSI upgrade
These upgrades have been implemented as single processor and redundant processor systems
See Rockwell Migration Profiles for more information
