  1. If you want to use Version 19 then you will need to download it from the Rockwell Website.
  2. The software version has to match the hardware version, so if you go to version 19 software you will need to go to version 19 for the hardware, note when you do the firmware change on the processor it will wipe out the existing program in the PLC.
  3. Produced-Consumed tags exchange

    I either got that way of doing it from a TechNote/Tech Support or from Ken Roach.
  4. Produced-Consumed tags exchange

    I set one up the other day and in the L55 (v16) I could not put the L73 (v32) in the tree so I put a L63 and it is working fine I just had to turn of unicast in the L73 on the consumed  as the L55 did not like that setting, after that it all worked fine, the 2 processors are in the same chassis.
  5. Changing a PowerFlex 753

    20-COMM-E are active mature.
  6. RS485 and DH485 are not the same, I am sure someone who knows all the differences can comment about them. From my understanding RS485 is a physical standard whereas DH485 is a protocol used by Allen Bradley.
  7. What is the BAS module connected to? You may be able to replace the unit with something that talks Ethernet.
  8. Are you writing your logic in ladder 2 or another ladder, if it is in another ladder then you will need to put a JSR(Jump to Subroutine) in ladder 2. By default ladder 2 is the only one scanned when the PLC is in run mode.
  9. FTV version 11 lets you make version 5 .mer. I think there is a patch from Rockwell that lets you do it with FTV version 12, but it will not from the standard install.
  10. rymac63, it may pay to talk to your distributor as there maybe an adapter plate that lets you keep the power wiring in at the top and out at the bottom.
  11. It sounds more like that the Comms port on the SLC is no good. If the program was lost or corrupted then the Fault light would be flashing red.
  12. The problem with using an ethernet cable is that the 24volts on the plc socket can damage a UIC, that's why you should use the correct C13 cable as it only has 3 pairs instead of 4 pairs.
  13. RsLogix 500 Tags

    Also these symbols and descriptions are only stored in the RSLogix 500 file, so if you uploaded the program from the PLC it will not include comments, you need a copy of the original RSLogix 500 file for that.
  14. Do you have a speed reference to the VSD, check Parameter 2 when you tell it to run, then check Parameter 1 to see what the output frequency is.
  15. Have you set up your communication path in the runtime area for this project, when you import a PV standard this does not get done automatically you need to do it manually.
  16. Compact Logix L24ER

    If you download RSLinx Lite and install (it is free) you will be able to use it to see the software version of the PLC.
  17. It looks like you are trying to write 2 to a digital (bool) tag, which you can only write a 0 or a 1 to. The tag that you are writing to needs to be an INT or a DINT, not a BOOL.
  18. RSLogix500 Software

    You will need to buy it from a Rockwell Automation distributer in your region.
  19. What is the full part number of the Panel View in question? There is no free software for AB Panel Views. Alan.
  20. SLC5/03 FactoryTalk

    Yes PvP = Panel View Plus, and out talk to the SLC's via RS232 DB9 ports and cables either with DF1 or DH-485.   Alan
  21. SLC5/03 FactoryTalk

    We have plenty of PvP's talking to SLC 503's and 504's in the plant I work in.   Alan
  22. To get online or look at SLC files you will need RSLogix500, RSLogix5000 is for ControlLogix and CompactLogix not SLC processors.     Alan
  23. SLC5/03 - FTV

    Which PanelView do you plan on using and how far away from the PLC will it be, is the serial port on the SLC 5/03 being used for anything?   Alan
  24. I just did a quick test starting at version 16 the filter/search did not appear until version 18.   Alan  
  25. ML1400 RSlogix Micro

    The MicroLogix 1100 and 1400 both allow online editing. The MicrLogix 1000, 1200 and 1500 DO NOT allow online editing. The version of software may also be a limiting factor, I did a quick search to try and find the differences but came up with too many answers.   Alan
