Logix5550 Controller Quick Start


(catalog number 1756-L1)
Before You Begin
Use this document as a guide for installing and powering-up your
Logix5550 controller. You should already be familiar with the
ControlLogix system components. See the documentation references for
detailed information.

Tools that you need

1/4 slotted (#2) or phillips screwdriver


1/8 slotted screwdriver
mounting tab hardware (for mounting the chassis)
drill (for mounting the chassis)
needle-nose pliers

Important: Installation instructions ship with each ControlLogix


component. If you want the Logix5550 User Manual or other
ControlLogix documentation, you must order the
documentation separately:

Logix5550 Controller Quick Start

Handling the ControlLogix system components


Take these precautions to guard against ESD damage:

ATTENTION: Electrostatic discharge can damage the


components. Follow these guidelines:

touch a grounded object to discharge potential static


wear an approved grounding wriststrap
do not touch connectors or pins on component boards
do not touch circuit components inside the controller
if available, use a static-safe work station
when not in use, store each component in the anti-static
packaging in which it was shipped

You can install or remove ControlLogix system components while chassis


power is applied and the system is operating. If you remove the controller,
all the devices owned by the controller go to their configured faulted state.

ATTENTION: When you insert or remove a module while


backplane power is on, an electrical arc may occur. An
electrical arc can cause personal injury or property
damage by:
sending an erroneous signal to your systems actuators
causing unintended machine motion or loss of
process control
causing an explosion in a hazardous environment
Repeated electrical arcing causes excessive wear to contacts
on both the module and its mating connector. Worn contacts
may create electrical resistance that can affect
module operation.
