  1. Using RTC To Shut off Motor

    I thought that RTC = Real Time Clock.    
  2. You have to be  very careful when using the 1747-UIC and an ethernet cable, you should really use the C13 cable as some devices have 24volts on 2 of the pins but the C13 cable does not have those pins connected. If you use an ethernet cable you could damage the 1747-UIC. Alan
  3. PLC 5 to Compact Logix with a Message?

    You need to make sure that you have the correct firmware in the PLC5 otherwise the CLX cannot talk to the PLC5. Early firmwares will not be able be connected to CLX. Not sure which version you need.
  4. Create new input and output tags and map the I/O to the new tags, you will need to copy the tag descriptions accross but this can be done by doing a couple of them and exporting the tag database and using Excel to modify the tag descriptions and the import the tag database back into RSLogix5000.   Alan
  5. PV+ 2711P-RDT15C can't communicate to 2 CLX processors

    What is the part number of the Logic module?   Alan
  6. DeviceNet needs its on dedicated 24v supply, and to perform properly it needs to have particular rise time characteristics. Alan.  
  7. AB MicroLogix 1200 Backup

    You will need RSlogix500 to Upload the program out of the ML1200 (but you will not get any comments or descriptions, these are stored in the RSlogix500 offline file).   In the AB world you Upload from the controler and Download to the controller.   Alan
  8. POWER FLEX 523 DEVICE NET COMMUNICATION

    Each device on a DeviceNet network needs it own address, called nodes, usually node 63 is left out as any new device will have that node number by default, and most time node 0 is the DeviceNet scanner but it does not need to be. Alan.
  9. Copy data from/to a 5069 digital module

    Hi All,   Rockwell have created a Tech Note for these modules that describes how to convert the module data back to INT's.   TN number is 790954 Alan.    
  10. AB Kinetix Drive Jog with Dynamic Speed

    Another way might be to do another jog at the new speed and disable the first jog when the second is in process. Note I have not tried this.   Alan
  11. What software are you using?
  12. SLC5/05 upgrade

    You can use a CompactLogix and a 1717-AENTR to replace the SLC processor, as long as you do not have any fancy comms modules in the rack (ie DeviceNet/RIO etc).   Alan
  13. RSlinx and PAnelview C1000 software

    The ML1400 uses RSLogix500 and it is not free, there is a free version for ML1000 and ML1100. The software fro programming the C1000 shoild be Connected Components Workbench (CCW) and that is free.   Alan
  14. Input Module Configuration or compatibility Issue

    Also how many modules are you installing to the ML1100, I just checked the AB website and it has a limit of 4 extra modules, and a total of 144 digital IO points.   Alan
