Case Study:

Migrating from PLC-5 to ControlLogix


Share via:

After Rockwell Automation discontinued the PLC-5 Control System and recommended that users migrate to its ControlLogix PLC platform, some users try to source parts on e-commerce sites, where they’re often expensive and without any warranty. Eventually, they will have to face the limited life of the PLC-5 and risk failure and significant downtime without a replacement. Our customer in the oil & gas industry had been pleased with the robust nature of the PLC-5 but felt that the time had come to make the change to the Control Logix L72 processor-based solution.
