Rockwell (Allen-Bradley) AB Suite Supported Devices

Get Connected to Rockwell / Allen-Bradley(AB) PLC5/xx, SLC 5/xx, MicroLogix, Logix and Micro800 Family Processors

Devices Supported (By Driver) - Don't See Your Device Listed? Contact Us

The below table is meant to provide a high-level overview of the device types and families of devices supported by the AB Suite - it is not an all-inclusive list of every model due to the sheer volume of model variants for AB controllers. In general, if your controllers is a PLC5, SLC, MicroLogix, Logix (ControlLogix, CompactLogix, FlexLogix, etc) or Micro800, the AB Suite should be able to get you connected.

We always recommend taking advantage of the TOP Server Free Trial to get connected to your controllers prior to purchase to ensure your needs will be met.

Looking for DH+ Support? Allen-Bradley DH+ (DataHighway) driver support for in-computer cards was deprecated starting with TOP Server V6.10.623.0 due to lack of vendor support for OS level drivers.

Important Notes:

  • The TOP Server ControlLogix Ethernet Driver specifies all Node IDs in Decimal format.  Rockwell software (RSLogix, etc.) specifies all Node IDs in Octal format, so please be aware that this conversion may be necessary when defining Device IDs in TOP Server.
  • It's also technically possible to use Logix routing syntax to perform ethernet-to-ethernet routing to a remote Logix controller on a different network from the PC where TOP Server is installed - for details on formatting the Device ID for ethernet-to-ethernet routing, click here.

The demo is the full product once licensed. Once a client application connects to the  TOP Server, the TOP Server runtime will operate for 2 hours at a time. At the end of the 2 hour demo period, the demo timer must be reset by restarting the TOP Server runtime service.
