WAGO is offering free Add-On instructions for Allen-Bradley
RS-Logix 5000, allowing Allen-Bradley PLC users to easily implement control
logic that supports the functionality of WAGO-IO-SYSTEM distributed I/O
modules. The instructions allow customers to adapt standard analog, digital and
specialty module I/O functions into ControlLogix, CompactLogix and DriveLogix
The Add-On instructions are designed to bring the modularity
and flexibility of the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM to projects requiring compact, granular,
DIN-rail mount I/O using DeviceNet and EtherNet I/P, while providing additional
specialty functions including: motor control (dc and stepper), serial
communications, vibration monitoring, HART Device monitoring, 3-phase power
measurement, AS-Interface Gateway and DALI Lighting Control.
Integration of WAGO Add-On Instructions into RS-Logix 5000
software (version 16 and up) is straightforward: use the import feature, select
the proper file and insert it into existing PLC code. Both relay logic and
structured text programming languages are supported. The fully documented
function appears as a native component of RS Logix 5000 software, ready for
configuration required by the application.
