Calling all Allen Bradley experts, I need a device recommendation please.
For reasons that don’t matter I NEED to setup a Factory I/O simulation that is driven by a physical Allen Bradley CompactLogix 5380 controller. I have no experience with AB kit so I’m at a loss to know which device to specify for the project.
The requirements are:
• 240v Power (we could use a separate PSU if necessary)
• Ethernet Interface for config / programming
• We don’t need a huge amount of physical I/O (so no need for extra modules), because we’ll be controlling a Factory I/O simulation, rather than physical devices
I also need a recommendation for the appropriate programming suite for this device (presumably Studio Logix 5000 Designer? But again there seem to be many versions at different prices).
Thanks in advance.
