Our Commitment to You During COVID-19 Click here


When you think “modernization,” you probably visualize a rip-and-replace. Extended downtime. Profit losses. The negatives you prefer never to ponder. There’s a better way, though: With a phased modernization of your Allen-Bradley® legacy equipment, you’ll update your systems on your timeline and your budget, minimizing drastic effects on your operation.

By handling it this way, you can include costs as part of your operating, rather than capital, expenditures. Have money you need to use before you lose it at the end of the year? Take another step on your modernization path. Before long, you’ll have a completely updated facility – without the losses and downtime. (If you need to migrate from a different vendor to Rockwell Automation®, find out what that journey would look like here.)


Modernizing Legacy Remote I/O™ and DH+™ Equipment

Your legacy Allen-Bradley equipment needs to be updated. But how do you keep the custom programming? Or keep everything running while trying out the new system? You probably thought you couldn’t do either of those. We’ve got great news, courtesy of the Modernization Gateway.

Find out how you can modernize your Variable Frequency Drives, PanelView™ terminals, FLEX™ I/O Adapters, PLC-5®, and SLC™!
