SLC 500 to CompactLogix 5380 Control System Migration

Modern technology helps you stay ahead with better performance and greater efficiency in a global market, and Rockwell Automation has now made it easier to modernize your existing 1746 SLC I/O with the I/O conversion modules.

I/O conversion modules provide a fast and efficient method for converting 1746 SLC I/O to Compact 5000 I/O. The I/O conversion is accomplished without removing any field wires from the existing terminal block, virtually removing the risk of wiring errors and reducing wiring/installation time. The existing removable terminal block fits directly into the new 1492 conversion modules.

The cables are pre-wired and have a connector for the conversion module on one end and a removable terminal block (RTB) on the other end. The I/O signals are routed through the conversion module and the cable to the appropriate terminals on the Compact 5000 I/O module.

The I/O Conversion System Includes:

  • Conversion Chassis
    • Upper Mounting Plate
    • Lower Mounting Plate
  • Conversion Module
  • Chassis Mounting Hardware
