CompactLogix L43 System
Vertical Form Fill and Seal
NO!!! The L43 uses internal flash to store the program during shutdown. Energy stored in the power supply provides the few seconds of hold time required to store the entire RAM image on to onboard Flash.
This is onboard flash and is NOT the front accessible CompactFlash. The CompactFlash card is still optional and continues to function identical to CompactLogix L3x operation.
The L43 controller still uses the 1769 bus for Digital, Analog, and Specialty I/O. In addition, the L43 controller will support a new high performance bus -1768.
This new 1768 bus provides the performance to support Integrated SERCOS Motion and multiple NetLinx Networks.
The L43 controllers support bridging from one bus to the other, so data can still seamlessly pass between the two buses
The following products will be available at initial release, April 2006
- 1768-L43 Controller
- 1768-ENBT EtherNet/IP Module
- 1768-M04SE 4 Axis SERCOS Module
- 1768-PA3 AC Power Supply
Supported in RSLogix 5000 V15
The ControlNet Module will be released with v16 release
The DC Power Supply will be released July timeframe
Since the existing 1769-SDN will work with the new L4x controllers, there are NO plans to create a new Devicenet Module for the 1768 Bus
The L4x is positioned at the top end of the CompactLogix Family.
The new L4x will bring improved performance, added memory and network capacity, modularity, and Integrated SERCOS Motion to the CompactLogix Family.
These improved capabilities will result in a price premium over the other L3x CompactLogix Controllers.
The 1768-L45 Controller is positioned below the ControlLogix 1769-L61 controller
The new L4x controllers will support less memory, less module expansion, and less Motion Axis than a ControlLogix system. ControlLogix is the exclusive platform for Redundancy, SIL2/SIL3 Safety, RIUP, Advanced I/O Diagnostics, and multiple Controllers per chassis.
The L4x rackless design and reduced functionality will result in a price savings over the more advanced ControlLogix System.
The CompactLogix L4x is a very powerful modular controller and is positioned at customers that value a system linked, architecture solution.
