High-Speed DAQ Module works with ControlLogix PLCs.

Press Release Summary:

Able to acquire data at programmable sample rate of 50 µsec, 5274A plugs into Allen-Bradley ControlLogix™ and programs using RSLogix5000 (Studio 5000). This analog input, high-speed data acquisition (DAQ) module archives data using PLC's registers for analysis or export. Transfer capability of up to 128 samples — on one channel or evenly divided over 4 channels — enables data capture from up to 4 different analog sources.

Original Press Release:

High Speed Data Acquisition Module for ControlLogix PLCs

Terryville, CT — Advanced Micro Controls Inc. (AMCI), introduces their 5274A High Speed Data Acquisition module for ControlLogix™. AMCI’s 5274A is an analog input, high speed data acquisition module that plugs into the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix and programs using RSLogix5000 (Studio 5000). The module is referenced within the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork™ Encompass program, as its approved technology fills a gap within the Allen-Bradley product offering.

The AMCI 5274A High Speed Data Acquisition module acquires data at a programmable sample rate of 50 microseconds, and archives the data using the PLC’s registers for analysis or export. The 5274A can transfer up to 128 samples, either on one channel, or evenly divided over the module’s four channels, making it possible to capture data from up to four different analog sources, including weigh scale, thermo-couple, vacuum sensor, etc.

“AMCI’s 5274A plug-in module adds sophisticated, high performance data acquisition capabilities to the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix PLC. Customers working in labs, research and development environments, or test & measurement applications for production can finally standardize on a single controls platform. In years past customers had to supplement their PLC investment with a separate and expensive PC-based data acquisition system – not anymore!” - Bob Alesio, AMCI Sales Manager

All of AMCI’s plug in modules for Allen Bradley PLCs utilize Rockwell Automation licensed technology and have been approved within the Rockwell Automation Encompass™ program.
