Maybe it’s time to upgrade.
Don’t let a failure stop production. Start your PLC-5
migration to ControlLogix today.
Due to the end-of-life status of Allen-Bradley® PLC-5® hardware, the cost and scarcity of replacement parts, and increasing risk of using obsolete hardware – we urge you to upgrade now. Start planning your PLC-5 migration to the ControlLogix® platform today. Cates can help!
The Cost and Risk of Using PLC-5 Hardware is Increasing
PLC-5 Hardware is Obsolete
Rockwell Automation discontinued the 1785 and 1771 series hardware in June 2017 and no longer sells or supports it.
Many Systems Continue Using It
Don’t risk a failure without an available replacement to minimize downtime. We urge you to migrate to the ControlLogix platform.
Replacements are Scarce
Many users buy expensive components from third party suppliers — increasing cost and risk as the parts often have no guarantee.
Assess the Impact of a PLC-5 Failure
- The Allen-Bradley PLC-5 controls many critical manufacturing processes
- What would the business impact be if a replacement were not available onsite or online?
- Potential loss of income and other negative consequences can justify an upgrade

Reduce Cost, Risk and Stress
Planned migrations are less expensive and reduce the risks associated with upgrading an entire facility at once.
