Ideal for motor control applications, the ArmorStart product family
allows you to mount your motor control near the motor.
The ArmorStart Distributed Motor Controller is an integrated, preengineered starter for applications such as material handling, automotive
assembly, airport conveyors, and sortation systems. Ideal for motor
control applications, the ArmorStart Family was developed to improve
productivity by allowing you to mount your motor control near the
motor. Now with the added capability of EtherNet/IP, the ArmorStart can
be configured, programmed and controlled using RSLogix™ 5000.
Ethernet has been the standard for business enterprise systems for many
years. Now, worldwide the industry is witnessing a convergence of the
Enterprise Ethernet and factory floor EtherNet/IP as the standard. This
relationship allows a more efficient exchange of critical information
without additional hardware to optimize your time and help with your
decision-making process.
The ArmorStart with EtherNet/IP incorporates the advantages of
distributed motor control, EtherNet/IP communication, and Embedded
Switch Technology. The ArmorStart EtherNet/IP family includes full
voltage or Sensorless Vector Control AC drive motor starters to cover
most of your critical applications. ArmorStart with EtherNet/IP is a simple,
seamless and cost-effective method of integrating pre-engineered
starters, I/O and network capabilities in your On-Machine™ architecture.
The dual port 10/100Mbps embedded Ethernet switch supports
high performance applications and allows connectivity directly to
your network, helping to reduce overall cost and simplifying system
configuration. Lastly, RS Logix™ 5000 is the preferred software tool used
for commissioning, programming and configuration.

Faster Time to Market with On-Machine
On-Machine is a design philosophy that moves control
and hardware closer to the application. On-Machine is
a pre-engineered, quick-connect system that simplifies
wiring, speeds up system commissioning, and minimizes
wiring mistakes. This can reduce setup and commissioning
time and provide faster time to market.

Reduces cost by minimizing panel size requirements
Reduces costs by using plug-and-play connectivity
Faster time to market with increased system modularity
Premier Integration
ArmorStart EtherNet/IP provides premier integration
within the architecture to deliver information with
enhanced control and access to parameter, status, and
diagnostics for faster response to changing environments.
ArmorStart EtherNet/IP supports:
Power, Control,
Network, and I/O
Quick Connect wiring
Device Level Ring
RSLogix™ 5000 Add-On Profile
• Quicker and more efficient program development
• Automatic descriptive tag generation for status,
diagnostics, and command information
• Help reduce mistakes and programming time

Integrated Motion on EtherNet/IP Support
ArmorStart EtherNet/IP Networks
ArmorStart EtherNet/IP delivers true embedded
dual port switch technology, not just a hub, to
support Linear and Beacon based Device Level Ring
(DLR) topology. You can quickly and easily configure
the IP address to be static or dynamic (DHCP) by
using the local address switches, add-on profile, or
embedded webpage.
Flexible, scalable and simplified
motor control solution
Embedded support of a transparent clock allows seamless
integration into applications with Integrated Motion on
EtherNet/IP – which uses CIP Motion™ and CIP Sync™
technology from ODVA. This is accomplished with no
additional components or performance loss.
