  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Activate rslogix500& rslogix5000

    Contact your  Rockwell Technical support, activation support is free.
  5. Newbie Screwed up AB 5/04

    If you look at the settings for port 1 in the old and the downloaded programs you should be able to see what they were both set for and then set up your laptop to suit the program you have just downloaded, providing you have the correct hardware. If that does not work you can default the processor (which will change the comms to the default DF1 setting) and use RSLinx autoconfigure to go online with a serial CP3 cable, you can then alter the port 1 config (to what it was in the old program, which I hope you uploaded before you downloaded your program) and download your program, so that you can go online again and also your HMI can talk to it.   Alan  
  6. CompactLogix slot numbers

    Power supplies are transparent to the slot numbering, they do not count as a slot. Alan.
  7. Wireless connectivity for Ultra 5000 IPD

    So you want serial at the U5000 and ethernet to the plant network. You could use the handwave connected to the U5000 and the otehr end connected to a PLC that has serial port. What do you want to get out of the U5000 whilst on the plant network?  
  8. Wireless connectivity for Ultra 5000 IPD

    I have used a serial wireless device it plugged into the serial power and needed a 5v power supply at the device and at the laptop I could plug it into the serial port and a USB port, I think it was called Handywave. I used to use it on Automax PLC's and was able to connect up to 150 meters away inside a factory.   Alan.
  9. 1747-pic/aic+ driver not found

    Also what is your Windows version and SP level as this also will effect the AIC driver.   Alan
  10. Micro830 send character & receive

    If you tell us how you solved it, it may help someone else later.
  11. Certification of PLC trainer

    Hi kaiser_will, Australia and NZ do instructor led training, and I am sure other countries do as well.
  12. Replacement For Ultra 5000 Servo Drive

    The Ultra 5000 drives have a motion processor on board which is programmed in I think C and then complied and downloaded into the drive (unless you have the original program you may not be able to read the on-board program) To the best of my knowledge none of the current range of AB have motion controllers built in. The only other AB servo drive (to the best of my knowledge) that had a motion controller on board was the 1394 system but that has been obsolete for many many years.   Alan.
  13. I believe you do not need tech connect for activation problems.
  14. Contact your local Rockwell distributor.
  15. As far as I am aware you can use motion instructions on the PF755 as long as you have added it to the program as CIP drive, this will let you use the motion instructions. you will need to read the manual to get further details.   Alan
