Improve functionality. HART modules (1756-IF8H, -OF8H and -IF16H) now feature updated Device Type Managers (DTMs) for compatibility with Windows 7 and Honeywell systems for increased functionality with HART instruments attached to a PlantPAx Process Automation System. Enhanced interoperability with RSLinx® software improves overall performance with HART-enabled architectures making configuration and management of HART instruments even easier. Download













Cost effective motion solution. Kinetix® VP low inertia motors support Integrated Motion on EtherNet/IP, delivering high performance and scalability that allows you to run motion applications on a single control platform using a single network. Now includes additional frame sizes from 63mm to 165mm and a continuous torque range of 0.46-33 Nm.













Robust design, easy installation. New external rotary operating handles improve one-hand operation and offer a more comfortable grip.














Expand your network capabilities. Adding a PanelView Plus 6 Ethernet accessory module to a PanelView Plus 6 logic module provides an Ethernet port that allows you to integrate separate data networks, and gives you additional options for remote connectivity and terminal-to-terminal communication.












Leverage the speed of EtherNet/IP. Connect the new dual-port EtherNet/IP communication adapter to PowerFlex® drives, SMC Flex and SMC-50 smart motor controllers to control, configure and collect data over an EtherNet/IP network. Supports linear, star and ring topologies as well as Device Level Ring (DLR) functionality.
