IntelliCENTER Software from Rockwell Automation Simplifies Controller Integration and Energy Reporting for CENTERLINE MCCs


Latest version of software gives users simplified integration and advanced energy data for more cost-effective production

MILWAUKEE, — Rockwell Automation has released two new features in Allen-Bradley IntelliCENTER software – IntelliCENTER Integration Assistant and IntelliCENTER Energy – to accelerate the configuration time and enhance end users’ data-driven energy decisions.

With IntelliCENTER Integration Assistant, users can seamlessly integrate their IntelliCENTER Motor Control Centers (MCCs) into their Rockwell Software RSLogix 5000 programming software. This feature reduces programming time by automatically adding the Allen-Bradley CENTERLINE MCC devices to the RSLogix 5000 I/O tree. In addition, Integration Assistant also takes advantage of existing premier integration features to automatically create controller tags and IP address configuration in RSLogix 5000 software, reducing errors and the time it takes to configure the intelligent devices.

IntelliCENTER Integration Assistant enables faster installation and commissioning time, providing real-time, device-level information and higher productivity. “Manufacturers expect intuitive software packages that work together,” said Paul Krause, IntelliCENTER product manager, Rockwell Automation. “Integration Assistant enables customers to take advantage of information already in IntelliCENTER software and load it into RSLogix 5000, the premier controller programming software on the market. This makes commissioning faster, and results in time and cost savings.”

IntelliCENTER Energy offers a pre-configured setup of FactoryTalk EnergyMetrix software for intelligent motor control devices in the MCC, including variable speed drives, overload relays and SMCs. In addition, users can view energy consumption at the device level directly from IntelliCENTER software. With IntelliCENTER Energy, it becomes easier to monitor and manage energy usage in the industrial facility for cost savings, and allows for easy integration of IntelliCENTER MCCs into plantwide energy-management systems. IntelliCENTER Energy gives users the information necessary to make fact-based decisions to help them optimize energy usage, improve equipment performance, and even predict equipment failure.

“Powered by FactoryTalk EnergyMetrix software, IntelliCENTER Energy builds on the monitoring and diagnostic functionality that is currently offered in IntelliCENTER software,” said Krause. “This feature allows manufacturers to remotely monitor energy at the load level – where the devices are consuming energy – rather than at the utility level. This device-level information helps them implement the best energy decisions and can lead to energy savings.”
