Allen-Bradley Micro800 controllers and Connected Components Workbench software offer fully customisable solutions for nano- and micro-level controller applications. Together, the controllers and software are easy to configure, install and maintain. Designed to be used with other Allen-Bradley component class products, such as drives, motion control and operator interface products, the controllers are part of a solution bundle that offers machine builders easy selection, installation and commissioning of their low-cost, stand-alone machines.

Suitable for stand-alone machine applications with fewer than 48 I/O, the initial range consists of two controllers - the Allen-Bradley Micro810 and Micro830 controllers - and Connected Components Workbench software. Leveraging the controller’s embedded USB and serial ports, machine builders can quickly program the controllers and link them to HMI and other serial devices - ultimately helping minimise selection and installation time and the total cost of ownership for end users.

The Micro800 controllers offer a range of plug-in modules for analog/digital I/O, communications and expanded memory. The plug-in modules enable machine builders to personalise the controllers to increase functionality without expanding the product footprint. The family also offers removable terminal blocks (most models) and simplified communication via point-to-point data exchange.

The Connected Components Workbench software follows established IEC-61131 standards. A single package that is easy to acquire, install and update, the software makes it convenient and cost-effective for machine builders and end users to leverage one platform for their programming and configuration needs. It allows machine builders to program Micro800 controllers and configure other devices in the system, including PowerFlex drives and PanelView component HMI products.
