A-B Migrations : Equivalent SoftPLC Products

 
A-B Crossover Equivalent

Crossover to SoftPLC

The tables on this page "crossover" the SoftPLC products that can be used for the same purpose as the listed Allen-Bradley products. These are not drop-in hardware replacements, but products that perform the same function in your control system. If you have an A-B part list and want to see what a SoftPLC based system would require, or if you have an existing A-B system and want to upgrade it, these tables will be very useful.

  • Overview

    A-B Crossover Equivalent

    Whenever you see this symbol in our store, it means we've made it easy for A-B users to find which Rockwell Automation/Allen-Bradley product(s) are equivalent in functionality to the SoftPLC product being described.

    For example, if you want to take advantage of our migration path from an A-B PLC to SoftPLC and leave the existing I/O in place, the "CPU" tab can help you select the right SoftPLC controller. If you need to replace some of the I/O or add more I/O, the "I/O" tab is the place to go. If your A-B PLC system uses a special module, such as for communication, the "Other" tab can help. For "drop-in" replacements for PanelView HMI's, select the "HMI" tab.

    Of course, every product from any vendor is unique and will include a different set of detailed specifications and capabilities. You will need to research the details if your application has strict requirements. Contact us if you have specific questions about the suitability of one of our products for your needs.

  • A-B PLC/PAC to SoftPLC CPU Crossover Chart

    The table below should be used only as a rough guide to help choose a SoftPLC CPU to replace or be used in lieu of an Allen-Bradley controller. Any SoftPLC, including the Micro SoftPLC, has more memory and computing capacity than the largest A-B controller. Most SoftPLC's have more built-in ports than any A-B controller. Choice of a SoftPLC controller is very application dependent, taking into consideration factors such as quantity/type of I/O, communication requirements, environment, physical space and cost. Contact us if you need assistance in choosing a SoftPLC CPU for your particular application.

    A-B to Tealware I/O Crossover Chart

    SoftPLC's Tealware I/O can be used locally with a Smart SoftPLC, or as remote Ethernet ModbusTCP I/O with any controller. The table below indicates which Tealware module can be used in lieu of Allen-Bradley I/O module for the same signal type and approximate number of channels. Note that the Tealware modules are not a hardware replacement to fit into an existing A-B system, the crossover reference is for use in determining the closest functional match that you would purchase as an alternative to A-B products for a SoftPLC system using Tealware I/O.

    As an open architecture platform, SoftPLC controllers support I/O from hundreds of vendors, we only list our own Tealware brand in this chart. If an A-B module is not listed, the functionality you need may be obtained using another vendor's I/O or firmware function within SoftPLC. Contact us if you need assistance in choosing a SoftPLC CPU and/or I/O for your particular application.

    * The Tealware module may not have all the characteristics required as an alternative to this A-B module. Check the specifications of both before assuming you can use the Tealware module as an equivalent.

  • I/O Racks & Power Supplies

    The tables below list the components which are used with modules to create complete I/O systems. Note that Tealware bases hold as many I/O modules as the number of slots, whereas A-B racks hold less due to slots reserved for CPU's, adapters, and power supplies. The Tealware components are not a hardware replacement to fit into an existing A-B system, the crossover reference is for use in determining the closest functional match that you would purchase as an alternative to A-B products for a SoftPLC system using Tealware I/O. Contact us if you need assistance in choosing a SoftPLC CPU and/or I/O for your particular application.

    Drop-In PanelView Replacement HMI

    The table below lists SoftPLC Web Studio HMI "drop-in" crossover replacements for PanelView models. Combined with the automated application conversion utility, upgrading old PanelView's is easy. You can also download a chart, which includes cutout comparisons and supported network protocols.

    By "drop-in" we mean that the Web Studio HMI will fit into the existing/same panel cut-out as the PanelView model. In almost all cases the Web Studio HMI is slightly larger than the PanelView, so no coverplate would be required, just minor filing/cutting. Where the Web Studio HMI is smaller, the difference is minor. Contact us if you need assistance in choosing product(s) for your PanelView upgrade.
