  1. Adding an analog output card

    No you must right click in the tree in RSLogix 5000 and select add module then add the correct module, NOTE you are limited to 8 modules in 1794 Flex IO, if you need more you will need to add another 1794-AENT(R) and then add you extra modules into that "rack".   Alan
  2. Adding an analog output card

    Is the remote rack a ControlLogix rack or Flex or Point IO, is the remote rack on ControlNet or Ethernet. All these things will need to found out to be able to add a new module.   Alan 
  3. Drive Executive software is no longer supported by Rockwell, they want you to use CCW(Connected Component Workbench). You should still be able to get Drive Executive Lite and RSLinx Lite. Drive Executive Full is a paid product and usually comes with Drive Observer, the latest version of CCW (ver12 ) come with its version of trending, which can be configured offline. RSlogix/Studio5000 used DE up to a certain version and now uses CCW (not sure when this changed).   Alan  
  4. 2098-DSD-HV150-SE behaving as a 2098-DSD-HV150

    That's what I was talking about.   Alan
  5. 2098-DSD-HV150-SE behaving as a 2098-DSD-HV150

    If you go online with Ultraware, you can turn the Sercos function back on, someone may have turned it off to make the drive a indexing drive. Note you need to be online to do this, I do not have access at the moment but if I remember correctly it is at the top left hand of the menu tree when online.   Alan  
  6. SLC 500 Communications issue

    Open up your program that you downloaded and see what the settings are for the comm ports, did you click on accept comms changes, if you did then it should now have the comms settings that are in the downloaded program, just configure RSLinx to those settings.   Alan
  7. Micrologix 1200 Fault

    Go online and look at the fault code and let us know what it is we will then be able to help you.
  8. Compactlogix L32e IP Address

    Which Ethernet driver are you using AB-ETH-IP or AB-ETH. If using AB-ETH, then type the L32E's IP address in the configuration box and then set your laptop to 192.168.10.x (just not the same as the L32E) and RSLinx Classic should see it. Are you able to ping the L32E from your laptop?   Alan
  9. SLC 504 and Prosoft AN-X2-AB slow

    Can you use a CLX gateway Chassis with a 1756-ENBT(or newer) and a 1756-DHRIO modules to bridge the ethernet to the DH+ network?   Alan
  10. Using RTC To Shut off Motor

    I thought that RTC = Real Time Clock.    
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. PV+ 2711P-RDT15C can't communicate to 2 CLX processors

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