ACD file to PDF

6 posts in this topic

Hello,

I have an .ACD file but do not have any software to read the controller tags. Can anyone please help me convert the file into a pdf? I can see from Notepad that is was made using RSLogix 5000 V21.

 

Thanks!

I don't know of any way to extract data from a .acd without Studio installed on the laptop. If the file is small enough that it can be attached to an email, you might try sending it to someone that has V21 or later. They can then export the tag data base and send it back to you as  a text or .csv file.

If you have RSLinx on your laptop and access to the controller, you can also monitor the tags live without going on line with the controller. Open Linx as an application and after setting up an appropriate driver for the network being used, right click on the controller and open the Data Monitor. It will produce an alpha-numeric list of the tags with their current values without interfering with controller operation.

If anyone has a trick for extracting data from a .acd without access to Studio, I'd love to hear it.

Hope this helps.

That's exactly what he was asking someone to do! He doesn't have the software, and wanted someone to print it for him. But at least you got credit for another post.

 

 

Here you go. See attached. One has just the controller tags. The other has the ladder in it as well. Sorry for the late response.

I don't have v21 installed, so I converted it to v24 and printed it out, selecting every option it let me select.
