The 1768-KY1 is a replacement part that is manufactured by the Allen Bradley brand. This replacement part should only be used in devices that have also been manufactured by Allen Bradley and should not be fitted in devices not listed in the replacement part’s compatibility list. This replacement part is suited for certain products in Allen Bradley’s series of CompactLogix Controllers. This is a replacement key that is used to provide a convenient approach to switching between different controller modes that have been configured in a compatible controller that is installed in a facility. The 1768-KY1 is compatible with a number of different devices that are part of the CompactLogix Controller range from Allen Bradley. Compatibility includes devices in the CompactLogix 1768-L43 Controller series and devices in the CompactLogix 1768-L45 Controller series. Devices that do not fall within these ranges should not be coupled with this replacement key in order to avoid potential issues caused by incompatible parts.
The initial configurations were implemented during the installation of the CompactLogix controller can cater toward the installation of the replacement key in most cases. This makes the process of replacing the existing key in the affected device a relatively simple process that will not cause the facility to experience a loss of productivity or time. Pre-defined modes can be switched accordingly once the 1768-KY1 has been fitted into the device. It should be noted that the replacement of the 1768-KY1 should only be performed by a trained professional. Certain procedures that are involved in the replacement of this key in a CompactLogix controller device require the skills of an expert to avoid the possibility of complications developing. The incorrect installation could lead to a mode switching to work incorrectly, which means the appropriate output power and settings provided by the CompactLogix controller where the replacement key is installed will not match the requirements of the motor attached to the device or the overall expectations of the operations where the device is utilized.
