  1. look at parameter 2 this is the commanded speed value it should be the same as parameter 1 the output speed.     Alan
  2. PF527 opto digital output

    Do you have 0v connected to terminal 17?
  3. Also unlatches can be used to turn off bits turned on by a HMI.    
  4. The ML1400 uses RS500.   Alan
  5. .cha vs .mer

    Use CCW to open the .cha file.     Alan
  6. FT View Numeric Display

    Using Joe E. suggestion if you make the number right aligned and then put the % as a text beside it.     Alan
  7. FT View Numeric Display

    Create a text object and imbed the variable and put the % after the variable.     Alan
  8. RSLogix5000, Codemeter & Studio 5000

    The 20.05 is the software version, the others you mentioned are the processor firmware. You should be able to use software version 20.05 to go online with PLC firmware version 20.   Alan.
  9. Interfacing a ControlLogix 5571 PLC

    What module are you trying to use and what firmware is the 5571?   Alan.  
  10. SLC 5/03 System Conversion To Ethernet

    The problem is the 1756-DH485 module was discontinued at the end of July 2015.   Alan.
  11. How do I find out if a poweflex vfd LP or HP?

    Low power in PF755 and PF755 go upto 467amps (at 400v in my case)  The PF755HiHP drives are a modular construction and start at 460amps (at 400v in my case) So if your drives are below 400amps it is a safe bet that they are LP drives.   Alan.
  12. Problems with upgrading server?

    Do you have any of the old standard Black panel views that use Panel Builder 32 if you do that software will not be able to talk to the panel views with RSLinx 4.12   Alan
  13. Powerflex 525 single phase

    Some of the PF525's have single phase input and 3 phase output. All PF525's have 3 phase outputs. Which model of PF525 do you have?   Alan.
  14. Password protected PLC programs

    I think you can use the data table monitor in RSLinx, I don't have any password protected PLC's to try it on.   Alan 
  15. Temperature Sensor's Raw value Scalling

    You will get a better answer if you list part numbers and which version of Logix you are using.
  16. 5069-L310ERM

    With the 5069 controllers you can set the ethernet ports to different IP address, or have them both have the same IP address. With having different IP addresses it allows you to connect to a scada network and a local IO network.   Alan.
  17. ip Finder

    Doesn't Rockwell have a tool called System Ferret that does this?
  18. Adding an analog output card

    No you must right click in the tree in RSLogix 5000 and select add module then add the correct module, NOTE you are limited to 8 modules in 1794 Flex IO, if you need more you will need to add another 1794-AENT(R) and then add you extra modules into that "rack".   Alan
  19. Adding an analog output card

    Is the remote rack a ControlLogix rack or Flex or Point IO, is the remote rack on ControlNet or Ethernet. All these things will need to found out to be able to add a new module.   Alan 
  20. Drive Executive software is no longer supported by Rockwell, they want you to use CCW(Connected Component Workbench). You should still be able to get Drive Executive Lite and RSLinx Lite. Drive Executive Full is a paid product and usually comes with Drive Observer, the latest version of CCW (ver12 ) come with its version of trending, which can be configured offline. RSlogix/Studio5000 used DE up to a certain version and now uses CCW (not sure when this changed).   Alan  
  21. 2098-DSD-HV150-SE behaving as a 2098-DSD-HV150

    That's what I was talking about.   Alan
  22. 2098-DSD-HV150-SE behaving as a 2098-DSD-HV150

    If you go online with Ultraware, you can turn the Sercos function back on, someone may have turned it off to make the drive a indexing drive. Note you need to be online to do this, I do not have access at the moment but if I remember correctly it is at the top left hand of the menu tree when online.   Alan  
  23. SLC 500 Communications issue

    Open up your program that you downloaded and see what the settings are for the comm ports, did you click on accept comms changes, if you did then it should now have the comms settings that are in the downloaded program, just configure RSLinx to those settings.   Alan
  24. Micrologix 1200 Fault

    Go online and look at the fault code and let us know what it is we will then be able to help you.
  25. Compactlogix L32e IP Address

    Which Ethernet driver are you using AB-ETH-IP or AB-ETH. If using AB-ETH, then type the L32E's IP address in the configuration box and then set your laptop to 192.168.10.x (just not the same as the L32E) and RSLinx Classic should see it. Are you able to ping the L32E from your laptop?   Alan
