  1. Is it possible to upgrade the firmware in an NJ controller?
  2. NS10 system program update?

    Hello, I would like to download my project to the NS10 -v2 but i get the following error:   I kind of remember that it was p;ossible to update this automaticaly in similar cases, like 8.7->>8.8 or something like that, i just clicked on okay and it did it automatically. But after ok the application just stucks on loading, NS restarts, in case of ethernet. I tried it with usb, it just quits after ok, and nothing happens. How can i upgrade the NS10 to 8.8 or 8.7 or 8.9 to be able to download my new project??  
  3. Hello everyone, we have two damaged analog cards for CompactLogix PLC ( 1769-OF8C  & 1769-IF8) that we are going to replace. my experience is with Siemens and Schneider PLC's  but for Allen Bradley, not so much so my question is : are there any requirements or specification other than the part-number that could prevent the cards from going in service directly ? as for the firmware, series and so on ?  and do i need to do any extra work after replacing the card ? thank you Best Regards
  4. We have L61's and L63's and are looking at upgrading them to the L7 equivalent. Has anyone had any experience of this and any pitfalls to avoid? Tech support have said that there might be issues with the comms cards resolved by updating their firmware. Is the upgrade that simple? We currently use Logix5000 at version 20.01 but are preparing to go to Studio5000 as part of the upgrade.
  5. Hello everyone! This is the first time I use Micro850 controller (2080-LC50-48QWB) and after I made a really simple programme (just for testing) I wanted to download it to my controller (which I was able to see and connect to via Ethernet and USB normally) and I got a message saying that firmware version didn't match (programme - v9, and PLC - v4). So I found some datasheet where was explained how to upgrade device firmware with ControlFLASH. I started the mentioned software, choose the right controller, and I choose the version 9 and the process started, but near the end I got the ERROR message, and the update wasn't finished successfully. So my controller went to fault (FAULT red light flashes) and now I can not see it in RSLinx nor via Ethernet nor USB. Does anyone have any idea what could I do to try to establish connection with my controller? I have tried to change from prog mode to run, and back to prog, but the fault remains. I really hope that I didn't make some serious mistake, because we need this PLC very soon for work. Thanks  in advance!
  6. F940GOT firmware

    Hi everybody, My client got a problem with F940GOT HMI, probably due to its lithium battery has dicharged. We have managed to find it and to replaced the battery, then have downloaded the working copy of the HMI program, which was uploaded from GOT to PC in good time, when the equipment was working fine. However after that not all is working well, something went wrong: there are unexpectable symbols on the HMI screen, undefined in the project... Perhaps, the HMI got a problem with its firmware... Therefore the questions are: 1) Where is to find the firmware? (may be somebody has it)  2) How to download the firmware into HMI? Thanks in advance for a quick answer and help, because the issue is quite urgent !
  7. LM90 to Proficy Upgrade

    This is a preliminary post to see if anyone can point me towards information on upgrading from LM90 to Proficy ME. We have a system that I was involved with 15 years ago and a new company that owns this rig is looking to upgrade from LM90 to PME and change out all of the Field Control Cards and update to VersaMax...... Was going to keep the Genius Comm until I heard that's on it's way out by the end of 2017 as well. Now looking to upgrade to Profinet. Any information that you want to throw at me would be appreciated. Cheers

PAROCK1 for HMI/SCADA View File Now a software solution is available for your Modbus (MB) needs in Rockwell/Allen-Bradley Control Logix or Compact Logix (Clgx) family processors, instead of a traditional 3rd party hardware like Prosoft MVI-56, Molex SST-SR4-CLX-RLL etc.  It is an Add-on instruction (AOI) for PLC/PAC firmware v16 or later, (other solutions are available for pre v16 systems).  For hardware interface, use PLC’s channel 0 (serial) or TCP/IP Interface module(s) to have as many MB TCP/IP devices or serial devices.  (Some limits apply based on system configurations, Comm. settings depending on HW used.) Connect any MB Client/Master or Server/Slave device(s) to your CLgx PLC, including flow computers, analyzers, VFDs, Power Monitors, Level gauges, Smart I/O, etc.  All the MB public/native function codes are supported.  32-Bit integers/floats as single entity are supported with byte and word level swapping. A separate utility automates the data mapping to your PLC logic.  Features -Serial Master (BASIC required Option); TCP; Slave; Redundancy; More than 5000 accumulative registers; MB CFC (Custom/Private Function Code) Support; Data mapping too – Between PAROCK1 & your PLC logic; Packaged with Rockwell; TCP/IP Interface Module; Volume Discounts; Annual Support Requirements -Rockwell/AB-CLgx processor with v16 or later.  Contact PCI for earlier versions. -If using CPU’s Chan0, you cannot use Chan0 for any other user mode activity.

  10. I a tried upgrading logix5000 from v17 to v20.1.   While 5000 is launching, it shows at the bottom that versions up through 20.1 are installed, but once it is fully loaded and logix is up, when I go to the help- about, it only shows version 17 even if I choose the dropdown.  Does anyone know if this is normal?  Alternatively, would somebody have a file they could send me that is v20 so I can verify it works? When I did the update, most of the upgrade selections seemed to fail, but when I tried to reinstall, it said everything was already installed.    Kris
  11. Hi: I know how to update the S7-1200 by this link: , but anyone knows about update the Firmware with other type of Memory Cards??? Is it available with 12MB or 4MB card??? Thank you a lot.

  14. Question about firmwares

    Hello. I searched for an answer for this but it is still not very clear to me. I have a new Guardlogix 1756-L72S. I would like to create a project to work with it with firmware version 20.13. I have RSlogix5000 v20.01(CPR 9 SR 5) which should be compatible with it (in fact I can open projects with another guardlogix that have that firmware version) BUT when I create my new porject, the firmware version RSLogix5000 puts is v20.11 1. How could I create a project with the firmware version 20.13 for my guardlogix? (Didn't find an AOP for this) 2. If I update the guardlogix to firmware 20.13 with the CONTROLFLASH, could I still be able to go online and work with it, even though my project has a different firmware version? Thanks!
  15. Hello experts, There's an existing PanelView600 (2711-K6C5 which has only RS-232-DH485 communication port) communicating to a MicroLogix 1500 (it seem to be an LRP processor since the serial communication is connected on the CPU left side) via female-female 9pins ribbon cable (used all 9 wires that I tested just straight-connect). Now my questions: 1) I read that I can upload PV600 project direct to laptop w/serial port using also straight connect 9pins cable (using just pins 2,3 and 5) and 1747 PIC/AIC+ driver on RSLinx. Could I just use the 9pin straight ribbon cable (using all 9pins) currently used by the PV comm. to ML1500 (unplug port to ML1500 then plug to laptop serial)? 2) Could I also use this same cable to upload ML1500 program (unplug PV600 port then plug to laptop serial)? 3) The new PanelView Plus 600 is a 2711P-K7C4A8. Could this new one also used that old same ribbon straight cable? I checked that this PV+ basic RS-232 port could also handle DH485 protocol and I also checked on a manual named "Legacy PanelView to PanelView Plus 6 Catalog Number Conversion" that it seems it's the particularly the correct counterpart of the old PV600, which also particularly emphasize the comm. port (RS-232-DH485). That's exactly what this is supposed to mean right, namely that the 2 panels have similar communication port, hence no need to modify anything on communication (esp. hardware/cable) right? I'm worrying because the plant guys said that those previous conversion, the other guys wasn't able to use the same ribbon 9pins straight cable from ML1500 side port to new PV+, instead they had to use the round port of the ML1500 and then used cable with some converters along the way before reaching the PV+. What do you think? Any inputs would really be appreciated!
