Easy PAC-to-PLC Communication

As the latest module in the vendor’s Appliance Transaction Module (ATM) platform, the RA56-cATM exchanges data between the latest Allen-Bradley ControlLogix PACs and installed Allen-Bradley PLCs including SLC 500, PLC-5, MicroLogix and CompactLogix.

It provides a simple and inexpensive way for users to maximize their investment in installed PLCs while migrating to the latest PAC technology, says the vendor, by eliminating the need for programming message instructions between the two control platforms. The ATM platform consists of hardware modules with embedded transaction software for the exchange of data between specific dissimilar products such as a factory floor controller and a database. Each one features an easy-to-use interface with automatic identification of connected products such as controller tags and database tables. The interface also features intuitive screens and drag and drop operation for easy set-up and configuration of data transactions such as establishing preset actions and reactions between products.
