Automatic device configuration (ADC) allows Logix controllers to detect a replaced network PowerFlex drive and download all configuration parameters automatically, minimizing the need for manual reconfiguration. This feature helps to enhance productivity by facilitating reduced downtime.
ADC can be used with Rockwell Automation PowerFlex drives that have a standard built-in EtherNet/IP port or drives using a dual-port EtherNet/IP option (PowerFlex 523 via Dual Port Ethernet, PowerFlex 525, PowerFlex 755, PowerFlex 753 via Dual Port Ethernet).
Automatic Device Configuration is an RSLogix 5000 (version 20) and Logix Designer (version 21 or greater) feature that supports the
automatic download of configuration data upon the Logix controller establishing an EtherNet/IP network connection to a compatible PowerFlex EtherNet drive and associated peripherals.
