Download code to a PLC without RSLogix

2 posts in this topic

Is it possible to download a project, or even just one function, to a ControlLogix or a CompactLogix PLC without opening the RSLogix software?

For example, by a command line or a small VB program

Not that I am aware of.  One must have (2) software packages...RSLinx, the communication layer software, and Logix5000 or Studio5000 (depending on the revision level).

Logix5000/Studio5000 is required not only to download (via RSLinx) but to control the operating program status (run, stop).  Without the software just for downloading, one would also need control to operating program status.  And for that, I just do not see utilizing a Logix PLC platform without the software.
