  1. PLC that can hold its memory

    For example the MicroLogix 1200 Memory module (1762-mm1) Could that also hold the memory for a PID? The issue at the moment is that since the processor goes without power for such long periods of time that all information on the PID gets lost. Does that module or even a processor that takes a SD card, does that also hold the variables for the PID? 
  2. I want some recommendations for a PLC that can hold its memory for long periods of time with no power. I have a customer that has the molds that only get used a couple of times a year and when they are not being used they sit in storage until they need them again. Currently they have a DirectLogic05 controller and what they have noticed is that when they pull these molds out of storage to use them, the program is lost and they got to download it again. They want to make it to were all they gotta do is plug and play basically for this machine. Is there a special module or a processor that can hold its program for long periods of time while it has no power on it? 
  3. IDEC MicroSmart PLC

    I have never programmed a IDEC PLC. I have played around with one a little bit but thats about it. I have a customer that has a very simple task for this PLC. He wants to monitor a input and send what ever data that PLC gathers via email to people in the company. I am unsure of the specs of this prodject at the moment, but I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction on where to start when it comes to setting up the email on this device. 
  4. Retrofitting old PLC5

    @pcmccartney1Thank you for the information!!! And as of more info on the rsview, sad to say but I am unsure of what they got. I have yet to even had the time to go out to the site to even look at the setup that they have. 
  5. Retrofitting old PLC5

    I have a customer that is wanting to upgrade his old PLC5 to something newer. I am still pretty new to the PLC world and was hoping to get some insight on possibly what might be the best fit. I still do not know a lot on this sytems. What I do know is that there are 5 input cards 2 output cards 1 analog input and 1 analog RTD card. Also the customer has a screen that uses rsview and he would still like to use that. Anyone got any suggestions on where I should start? Or even what other information I would need in order to find the perfect fit?
