Logix Platforms
1
Allen-Bradley Logix platforms provide a single integrated-control architecture for discrete,
drives, motion, process, and safety control.
The Logix platforms provide a common control engine, programming software
environment, and communication support across multiple hardware platforms. All Logix
controllers operate with a multitasking, multiprocessing operating system and support the
same set of instructions in multiple programming languages. One RSLogix 5000
programming-software package programs all Logix controllers. And, as part of the
Integrated Architecture, all Logix controllers offer the benefits of the Common Industrial
Protocol (CIP) to communicate via EtherNet/IP, ControlNet, and DeviceNet networks.

FlexLogix System
Overview
A FlexLogix system provides a multi-purpose programmable controller. You can distribute
I/O to locations close to sensors/actuators. Connect multiple FlexLogix controllers in
networks for distributed processing.
Because it has a Logix control engine, a FlexLogix controller supports the Logix instruction
set, tasking model, and data model. A FlexLogix controller and other Logix controllers
have a common approach to programming and configuring I/O with RSLogix 5000
programming software. The 1794 I/O products offer a range of digital and analog I/O
(including intelligent I/O) in a rugged modular assembly.
A simple FlexLogix system can consist of a single, stand-alone assembly with one
controller and as many as eight I/O modules.
In a more complex FlexLogix system, use multiple controllers across networks. Distribute
the I/O platforms over multiple I/O links.

FlexLogix Selection Guide
Lay Out the System
3
Lay out the system by determining the network configuration and the placement of
components in each location. Decide at this time whether each location will have its own
controller.
If you use multiple FlexLogix systems, use a central controller, such as a ControlLogix
controller, to coordinate the FlexLogix controllers. If the FlexLogix controller uses remote
I/O, place it on its own network. If you plan to share I/O, make sure the I/O is on a
network that each controller can access locally.
Each FlexLogix controller can support:
y 8 local I/O modules.
y 8 extended-local I/O modules.
y 32 connections per communication card over a ControlNet or an EtherNet/IP network
(two communication cards per controller maximum).
y 496 input bytes and 492 output bytes over a DeviceNet network.
Layout a FlexLogix
Backup System
FlexLogix backup on a DeviceNet network is a simple, low-cost, backup system targeted
towards smaller applications that require fast switchovers from a primary to a secondary
controller. FlexLogix backup is faster that a software-implemented switchover and lower
cost than ControlLogix redundancy.
FlexLogix backup is suited for RTU (remote terminal unit) and power generation
applications. It is also suited for small process applications where environmental control
is critical.
Requires:
y RSLogix 5000 software must be version 10 or later and FlexLogix firmware must be
revision 10 or later.
y The primary controller and the secondary controller each need their own 1788-DNBO
scanner. The 178-DNBO firmware must be at revision 2.x or higher.
y The DeviceNet network should be set up with both the primary and secondary 1788DNBO node addresses set to 0.
y All the I/O and operator interface devices that require backup must be on the
DeviceNet network.

y Extender cables
y 1794-FLA adapter for an extended-local

y 1797-BIC and 1797-CEC, if using FLEX Ex
I/O modules
The FlexLogix controller adds control to the flexible, low-cost, modular FLEX I/O
system. Use FlexLogix controllers to meet the needs of your distributed and standalone applications.
When planning I/O communications, consider:
y which FLEX I/O modules to use.
y where to place FLEX I/O modules.
y how FLEX I/O modules operate.
The FlexLogix controller supports FLEX and FLEX Ex I/O modules. FLEX and FLEX Ex
I/O modules are packaged I/O modules that plug into terminal bases. The terminal
base makes the backplane and provides the terminal connection points for wiring the
I/O module.
This family of I/O modules Provides
FLEX I/O
FLEX I/O builds an I/O interface onto a terminal strip. Use
the terminal strip on the terminal base to wire field
devices directly.
FLEX Ex I/O
FLEX Ex adds galvanic isolation to the modularity of FLEX
I/O. Dual-fault, intrinsically-safe circuits let you install I/O
or connect to field devices in a hazardous area while
maintaining a high degree of safety.
Important: If you use FLEX Ex I/O modules, only connect the intrinsically-safe I/O
modules to other intrinsically-safe apparatus to maintain the integrity of the
intrinsically-safe system.
Do not mix regular FLEX I/O and FLEX Ex I/O on the same ControlNet network segment.
You must separate the modules on different ControlNet segments using either a fiber
hub (1786-RPA, 1786-RPFM and 1797-RPA, 1797-RPFM) or a ControlNet coax barrier
(1797-BCNR).
You can connect FLEX Ex modules only on the local rail (not the extended-local rail) of a
FlexLogix system using a 1797-BIC and 1797-CEC module pair.

Place FLEX I/O Modules
The FlexLogix controller supports a local DIN rail of as many as 8 I/O modules and an
extended-local DIN rail of as many as 8 I/O modules.
If you have a mix of analog and digital I/O modules, place the digital I/O modules on one
DIN rail and place the analog I/O modules on the second DIN rail. You can then configure
a faster RPI for the digital I/O and a more appropriate RPI for the analog I/O without
impacting the digital I/O.
Isolate FLEX Ex I/O
Modules
To maintain the intrinsic safety (IS) isolation of FLEX Ex I/O modules in a FlexLogix system,
you must install:
y the FLEX Ex I/O modules only on the local rail.
y a 1797-BIC Flexbus isolator module and 1797-CEC connector module between the
FlexLogix controller or FLEX I/O modules and the FLEX Ex modules.
You can also use a 1797-BCNR ControlNet barrier module to interconnect between

NetLinx Open Network Architecture
NetLinx Open Network Architecture is the Rockwell Automation strategy of using
open networking technology for seamless, top-floor to shop-floor integration. The
NetLinx-based networks – DeviceNet, ControlNet, and EtherNet/IP – all use the
Common Industrial Protocol (CIP), so they speak a common language and share a
universal set of communication services. NetLinx architecture, part of the Integrated
Architecture, seamlessly integrates all the components in an automation system from
a few devices on one network to multiple devices on multiple networks including
access to the Internet – helping you to improve flexibility, reduce installation costs,
and increase productivity.
y The EtherNet/IP network is an open industrial-networking standard that supports
implicit and explicit messaging and uses commercial, off-the-shelf Ethernet equipment
and physical media.
y The ControlNet network allows intelligent, high-speed control devices to share the
information required for supervisory control, work-cell coordination, operator interface,
remote device configuration, programming, and troubleshooting.
y The DeviceNet network offers low-cost, high-speed access to plant-floor data from a
broad range of plant-floor devices and a significant reduction in wiring.

ControlNet Network
The ControlNet network is an open, state-of-the-art control network that meets the
demands of real-time, high-throughput applications. The ControlNet network uses the
proven Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) to combine the functionality of an I/O network
and a peer-to-peer network providing high-speed performance for both functions.
The ControlNet network gives you deterministic, repeatable transfers of all missioncritical control data in addition to supporting transfers of non-time-critical data. I/O
updates and controller-to-controller interlocking always take precedence over program
uploads and downloads and messaging.

The DeviceNet network is an open, low-level network that provides connections between
simple industrial devices (such as sensors and actuators) and higher-level devices (such as
PLC controllers and computers). The DeviceNet network uses the proven Common
Industrial Protocol (CIP) to provide the control, configure, and data collection capabilities
for industrial devices.

Backup Systems via a DeviceNet Network
FlexLogix backup relies on the ability to have shared DeviceNet mastership of slave I/O
devices. The heartbeat communications between the primary and secondary controllers
determines which 1788-DNBO scanner is the master and which scanner is in standby.
Requires:
y RSLogix 5000 software must be at version 10 or later and FlexLogix firmware must
be at revision 10 or later.
y The primary controller and the secondary controller each need their own 1788DNBO scanner. The 178-DNBO firmware must be at revision 2.x or later.
y The DeviceNet network should be set up with both the primary and secondary
1788-DNBO node addresses set to 0.
y All the I/O and operator interface devices that require backup must be on the
DeviceNet network.

Optical Isolator
The FlexLogix controller is grounded through its DIN rail and its grounding stud. An
isolator is recommended between the controller and the workstation.
Application
Example Configuration
If you connect the controller to a
modem or an ASCII device,
install the optical isolator
between the controller and end
device.
An optical isolator is
recommended if you use the
serial port to directly connect a
programming workstation to the
controller.
Modbus Support
To use Logix5000 controllers on Modbus, you connect through the serial port and execute
a specific ladder logic routine. The controller project is available with RSLogix 5000
Enterprise programming software. For more information, see Using Logix5000 Controllers
as Masters or Slaves on Modbus Application Solution, publication CIG-AP129.

DH-485 Network
On the DH-485 network, the controller can send and receive messages to and from other
controllers on the network. The DH-485 connection does support remote programming and
monitoring via RSLogix 5000 software. However, excessive traffic over a DH-485
connection can adversely affect overall performance and can lead to timeouts and loss in
RSLogix 5000 configuration performance.
Important: Use Logix5000 controllers on DH-485 networks only when you want to add
controllers to an existing DH-485 network. For new applications with Logix5000
controllers, networks in the NetLinx open architecture are the recommended networks.
You need a 1761-NET-AIC converter for each controller you want to put on the DH-485
network. You can have two controllers per one 1761-NET-AIC converter, but you need a
different cable for each controller. Connect one controller to port 1 (9-pin connector) and
one controller to port 2 (mini-DIN connector).

FlexLogix controllers can monitor and control I/O across the 1794 backplane, as well as
over I/O links. FlexLogix controllers can communicate with computers or other processors
across RS-232-C (DF1/DH-485 protocol), DeviceNet, ControlNet, and EtherNet/IP
networks. To provide communication for a FlexLogix controller, install the appropriate
communication interface module into the controller.
The multi-tasking operating system supports 8 configurable tasks that can be prioritized.
One task can be continuous. The others must be periodic or event tasks. Each task can
have as many as 32 programs, each with its own local data and logic, allowing virtual

Determine Total
Connection Use
The total connection requirements for a FlexLogix system include both local and remote
connections. Tallying local controller connections is not an issue because the controller
supports the maximum number of modules on both the local and extended-local DIN rails.
It is important to tally remote connections through a communication card because the
communication card you select determines how many remote connections are available
for I/O and information. Use the following table to tally remote connections for a
communication card.
Connection Type

RSLogix Emulate 5000
Software
RSLogix Emulate 5000 software (9310-WED200ENE) is the emulation package for the
Logix5000 controllers. RSLogix Emulate 5000 software, used in conjunction with RSLogix
5000 software, lets you run and debug your application code while at your computer. In
addition, RSLogix Emulate 5000 software lets you test HMI screens, developed in RSView
software for example, without the need to connect to a real controller.
You can set tracepoint and breakpoint instructions (ladder diagram only) in your
application code, use traces, and also vary the execution speed of the emulator. RSLogix
Emulate 5000 software supports all the programming languages (ladder diagram, function
block diagram, structured text, and sequential function chart). RSLogix Emulate 5000
software does not allow for control of real I/O.
Use RSLogix Emulate software for:
y troubleshooting.
Stop the process whenever a selected rung goes true, effectively freezing the process at
the instant that any error occurs.
y ladder logic scanning options.
Scan your ladder logic continuously, one program scan at a time, rung-by-rung, or select
a specific block of rungs to emulate. Selecting a block of rungs lets you isolate a
particular section of the program for testing purposes. You can also set trace points to
trace application program tags and set break points to halt program execution at
predetermined locations.
