Modular simplicity
A ProcessLogix system is a combination of server,
operator station, engineering and maintenance tools
operating as a single, optimized system. And since
ProcessLogix uses the same chassis, I/O, power
supply, communication modules and networks as
ControlLogix, you can easily mix and match
components to fit your application.

Redundancy where you need it

ProcessLogix can easily be expanded to include
redundancy when required, reducing the risk of a
process shutdown due to a single component failure.

Additional ProcessLogix features include:

• integrated detail displays, custom graphics,
alarms, history and reports
• integrated deterministic networking
• automatic peer-to-peer messaging
between controllers
• standard and user-definable application templates
Object-based graphics provide a powerful interface
• hierarchical control development environment for the ProcessLogix user:
• easy, high speed connectivity to other • Group displays are a direct result of application
