Program Robots in RSLogix

Feb. 2, 2011
The MLX100 robot gateway—announced at the 2010 Pack Expo show in Chicago and at the Rockwell Automation Fair event in Orlando—enables control and programming of the vendor’s robots from the ControlLogix platform.

“We are excited about the MLX100 robot gateway and what it means for the wider adoption of robotics in the consumer packaging industry,” says Roger Christian, vice president, marketing and development. “The ability to program the robot from within RSLogix software opens new possibilities for packaging-machine OEMs and end-users. Using PAC/PLC language, the MLX100 allows users to program, deploy and support robotic system solutions utilizing their existing in-house PAC/PLC expertise.”
