    I have no idea what you are asking here.  When you go into the software to create a project, you pick the part number of the CPU.  The whole part number, as shown on the CPU.  What is there to remember?

    Im just trying to Catorgize each one of these in memory  I have three or 4 different options

    Q series is a family or series of products. Products of one family tend to have similar characteristics such as form factor, instruction set, supported types of expansion modules, memory type etc. individual members of the family will have some differences such as memory size or maybe CPU speed etc.

    to get familiar with something you need to spend more time with it. study catalog and manuals, do some programming. really important thing here is to use correct manuals so you need to be able to identify products you use. 

    Thanks alot. I was really liking Allen Bradley it seemed straight forward. Hopfully I can find tricks to remember which PLCs go with that in the drop down list. Like updated PLCs just have a prefix added to the name ect

  4. Question. After install 3 months ago...What would cause a plc module to stop working during production, not let people apply settings and revert back to old settings and permeters. Using some Intelligent design functions. Also it would not let the backup be applied. 


     Im always looking for a clever way to remember what plc name or type goes with what on the communication type/ on the test screen. A plc or a I/O module connection and how to diferentiate between with the naming sceme.

    Needing a better way to remember how too see the plc name in cabnet and select what type of plc and connection is needed to be selected on the software steps....

    How do I determime what type plc to select in the drop down list?? How would I know? What series naming goes with what listed in drop down list?

    What plc connection type and what name in the list on gx2 is needed with the pictured PLC type? How would i know?

    Also is there a list of steps to getting online with gx2?
