What We Do: Logix control systems are highly functional and easy to use.

What We Do

Open Architecture Control System Design

The Logix Control System features a Pentium-based, industrial-grade controller specifically designed for demanding real-time process control applications. The Logix Axiom™ distributed processing architecture ensures system reliability, affords lower installation costs, and accommodates future additions easily. Off-the-shelf component construction means you're assured of replacement parts’ availability from multiple vendors. Functionality, reliability, cost-effectiveness and long service life make Logix the logical choice.

Flexible, Modular Design

The Logix Control System is based on a modular approach, making change simple and logical. As your plant grows larger, simply add Logix control modules to meet your increased control needs. An added module could be in the form of another control panel, or additional processing capacity in an existing Logix control panel. The modules integrate easily and seamlessly into your control configuration.

The Logix Control System is available in configurations to address your plant's specific control challenges, ranging from controlling single equipment items (for example, screw compressors, condensers, evaporators) to facility-wide integrated control.

Standard Features

Widely available, field-tested, industry-proven hardware: The Logix Control Panel hardware has been field-tested in harsh, electrically "noisy" environments to ensure reliability in the most adverse industrial conditions. Our PC-104 bus-compliant microprocessor hardware components are widely available and manufactured by numerous vendors. Logix Control Panels include NEMA-4 cabinets suitable for wash-down environments, and are UL listed for safety and code compliance.
