    Your welcome.

    No, it is for a PLC5's RSLogix 5. If you want to view it then post it here and someone will make a PDF of it for you.

    Looks like the link posted here still works. https://www.theautomationstore.com/where-can-i-download-rslogix-500/
  5. Micrologix 1400 HSC INPUT PULSE REQUIREMENTS

    Most paddle wheels end up needing some pull up resistors on them. Look in the details of the wiring diagram and see if it doesn't say anything about that.
  6. Micrologix with 2 ethernet

    I'm not aware of a way to do this easily.  I've used routers to allow for separate networks to be connected to one PLC, but it is still going across the single port in the end.

    If you had posted you program like we asked, we would have walked you through it.  I'd say all of us are around 90% certain of you are doing wrong, but without seeing your work it is hard to be sure how to guide you.  Vague questions will always lead to vague answers.  I'd consider editing your last post.  Most of these guys are going to less like to help you after they read it.

    Why don't you post your program so we can have a look.
  9. Retrive Password from mer file

    No one here can help you bypass any type of password. It's against the terms of use of the website.

    Have you written out the steps it will take to do the sequence including inputs and outputs required for each step?
  11. Major Fault

    Thanks for letting us know what you found. I would recommend adding a ring of code so that that array index ends up being greater than the array size, it moves the safest possible value back into it and sets some alarm.
  12. Major Fault

    What is the size of the arrays used in your message instruction?
  13. Interview Question

    Here's a question for you. Are you looking for an employee that can troubleshoot PLC programs or the machines? 95% of the time there's nothing wrong with the program. The question usually is can he figure out why the motor isn't running. I think a better test would be a ladder program with numerous permissive to start a motor. Then the question be if the motor will not run what should you look at on the machine to determine why it's not running. Safety gates, e stops, limit switches, Etc
  14. To Infinity

    I didn't catch the decimal.  Probably switching the low tag to floating and lowering the trigger will work, but how many decimals to the left and the right will you need?
  15. To Infinity

    You are pretty much on the right track.  If it were me I would have two DINTs, LowDint and HighDint.  LowDint increments as normal, then have a GEQ source A being the LowDint and source B being 1,000,000,000 to add one to the to the HighDint and set the LowDint back to 0.  Then convert both to strings and Concatenate them into a string that represents the flow total.
