Question
Is vertical mounting of SLC, Micro800, PLC and LOGIX processors, chassis, and power supplies a supported configuration?

Answer
Unless otherwise specified, Allen Bradley/Rockwell Automation does not recommend vertical mounting of any SLC/PLC/LOGIX chassis or power supplies.

Temperature, Shock and Vibration are all tested and rely on horizontal mounting in order to meet our published specifications. Temperature especially relies on convection air flow for cooling of the modules and mounting vertically would prevent this.

One noted exception is the CompactLogix 5370 L1x controllers. Vertical mounting of these controllers is supported, however, the 2" air gap all around the controller must always be maintained.
