An Allen Bradley PLC5 handles all aspects of individual device control and some sequencing tasks. It is programmed in Ladder Logic.
The user interface is configured using Allen Bradley's ControlView software which runs on a PC platform. The operator console consists of two PCs. They supervise the PLC, exchange commands and data via Allen Bradley Data Highway+, and provide alarms, data logging, event responses, and slow sequencing.
