You have to make sure you have the correct version of Logix5000 or Studio 5000.

FYI it is Logix 5000 version 17

Here's a tip: if you just need to know the version of the ACD file, you can open it in notepad.  The top of the file has a version history.  Scroll to the last entry in that history to see the current version of the software.

Hello,

I am in the same situation. I have .ACD file but do not have any software to read ladder logic. Can anyone help me convert the file into pdf please?

 

Is there any software, apart from RSlogix, available out there to view this type of file?

 

Thanks,

HA

I will let someone else convert that for you since I don't have v28 installed on my machine.

 

Only RSLogix/Studio 5000 can open *.ACD files. Which software (RSLogix 5000 or Studio 5000) depends on the version. They changed the name somewhere around v21 or so.

Harsh,

Looked at the program, I see that you are an admin for the machine.  I also see the name of the original company that created the logic and the programmer.  I checked and that person exists.  Have you contacted them and him to get a pdf of the program?  I'm concerned that you are asking us to print this program and go around the OEM of the equipment and possible intellectual property rights.
