    5274A ControlLogix Data Acquisition Module

    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).

    High-speed is the operative word for this data acquisition card that acquires data at a programmable sample rate, 50 microseconds minimum, and archives the data using the PLC’s registers for analysis or export. The 5274A can transfer a maximum of 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 (e.g. weigh scale, thermo-couple, vacuum sensor, etc.).

    Typical applications for this module include:

    • Research and analysis (factory, laboratory, etc.)
    • Design validation and verification
    • Manufacturing and quality test
    • Diagnostics and repair
    • Asset condition monitoring
    • Control and automation

    Say goodbye to complex, PC-based systems and standardize your high-performance data acquisition system using an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix PLC.
