  1. RSLogix 500 Firmware question

    Ahh, the program migrator is junk, better off copy and pasting it.    
  2. RSLogix 500 Firmware question

    I've done it before. worked just fine. But if you're not using DH+ communications I'd get a 5/05 you just have to change the processor type in the project before you download it. If you are using DH+ communications I'd suggest budgeting to change them all to 5/05 at once and reconfigure for ethernet, that way you have some path for new equipment or scada.
  3. Warehouse ethernet cable

    You might want to consider ToughCable from ubiquiti networks it's rather durable and robust.
  4. THe L24 and L27 both will take up to four modules, All of them support Ether/ip assemblies or EIP  
  5. The compactlogix is modular. AOI, UDT, ST, FBD, LL, Ether/IP, 2 PID routines.
  6. Logicmaster 90 Software Needed

    I've got a 90 Micro I haven't been able to get online with I'll try it on. That's a big oh hell no. I don't have any PC's older enough to run that,
  7. how to change Panelview300 from DF1 to DH485

    Let me see the back of that.  
  8. Annoying little window in logix designer

    There must be because mine doesn't do that.
  9. Solenoid interlocks

    That is the most awkward drawing of a seal in circuit I've ever seen.  
  10. I'd look at Allen Bradley Compactlogix PLCs that have the sweet programming features of the controllogix with a lower price tag and no stupid backplane. I have avoided the Siemens mostly due to scada driver support and lack of engineers asking for it outside D.O.D. projects. I've only dealt with Mitsubishi Drives, hopefully their PLCs aren't as convoluted, 
  11. PLC and HMI freezing issue

    Sounds like your power supply needs to provide more amperes.
  12. Wire size <18awg

    That's probably a state level electrical code. Some states have gone nuts with their electrical codes. Maryland requires 12ga on anything over 60 volts excluding prefabricated assemblies.  This gets to be real fun with some 4 wire analog transmitters and a real nightmare with Hach sc200 controllers.
  13. grounding and fluctuation

    Correct! Don't ground the negative unless you are installing the system in an automobile! 
  14. Unity to RSLogix5000 conversion

    Since the SLC's predate XML I'm going to guess that won't work.  Since Unity Pro broke on this PC again I'm guessing copy and paste won't work.. At least it's not my Field PC anymore.
  15. What is your favorite and least favorite HMI software?

    Viejo any version HAte
