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.

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.
