  1. Greetings, I'm here in my home lab trying to acquire a working knowledge of UDT's.  I've had to work with them in the past in large existing programs and they were a pain to track down and find out what IO they were really controlling.  I have a decent understanding of what they are and I've created several to play with here using my softlogix processor and a digital flex IO rack. My issue starts when i'm trying connect my UDT's to the physical IO.  it looks like I cant use a simple move instruction (which would be way too easy and exactly what I need)  I have a flex IO 8 point output.  Local:1:O.Data[0] I have a UDT consisting of (see attachment) Valve001  Valve001.Out     Valve001.Out.OPEN     Valve001.Out.CLOSE   Valve001.In     Valve001.In.OPEN     Valve001.In.CLOSED I have a copy instruction set to copy Valve001    to Local:1:O.Data[0]     Length 2 that allows the Out.Open and Out.Close UDT's to control bits 0 and 1 of the 8 bit output . .... great. Now I have another UDT setup to control lighting... Door   Door.Out.OPEN   Door.Out.CLOSE I want to control bits 2 and 3 I make another copy instruction in a line before the original copy instruction that states Copy Door to Local:1:O.Data[0] Length 4 but i'm really just fighting for the same 2 bits that the valve controls.... how can I control bits 2 and 3 for the door/lighting logic using these UDT's?   and that's not yet getting into having physical inputs moved/copied to the UDT input bits. thanks!!    
  2. First of all im using a softlogix 5860 processor connected via 1784 PCIDS card to the 1794 devicenet adapter. my first module is a 16 bit DC input followed by a 16 bit output and finally my 2channel input/ 2 channel output. I can write code in 5000 for the digital IO's just fine and i have the .dnt file setup correctly with all lights green and i can see voltage change from rsnetworks when i monitor the input from the 1794 ADN (setup for 0-5v). From the reading i've done, i know i have to use block transfer msg and there is a sample file included with the version of rslogix that i have but its setup with different controllers and adapters. I've read anything i can get my hands on online from rockwell but the docs on these adapters only show the setup example using the ethernet IP version. in the ethernet IP version you can right click on the 1794 IP adapter in rslogix 5000 and add the module.... you cannot do this using the devicenet adapter. I can include my basic logix file but theres not much to it since I have no idea where to go from here. If anyone has ANY experience with this i would be forever greatful thanks in advance.ANALOG.zip
