  1. RSLinx Pro and RSView32

    Thank you all for your continued patience and guidance: I took your advice and downloaded KEPServerEx. I am using it as my OPC server and I continue to use RSView32 as OPC client. I added Kepware as local OPC server and I am getting valid results in Tag Monitor. But I am getting this message in KEPServerEx "Attempt to add OPC client item '[Eccles]CV01_CLI' failed". Example of how my tags were configured '[Eccles]CV01_CLI' using RSLinx Pro. It is now configured this way 'SYSTEM.CPU._System._Enabled' with Kepware. I would like to know if I have configured it correctly? I added one channel (controllogix ethernet) and one device (controllogix 5555) with ID 130.130.130.2,1,0 Do I have to add any tags in OPC server? Why the error to add OPC client? I was able to see processor in RSWho when I had RSLinx configured.

    I need help connecting my RSView32 OPC Client to RSLinx Pro OPC Server on same computer. Thanks
  3. Copy DDE/ OPC Link

    I need help connecting my RSView32 OPC Client to RSLinx Pro OPC Server.
  4. Copy DDE/ OPC Link

    I am using RSView32 as OPC client v 6.30.17 and RSLinx Professional as OPC Server v 2.40.01. I cannot connect my client to the server, hence I am unable to browse my tags and view data in display. Everything is on one XP pro machine. I configured driver (able to browse I/Os), created Topic and pointed to Controllogix controller. I created Node: RSLinx OPC Server (local), enabled, left Address Path blank. My tag monitor is returning errors. I was told to copy DE/ OPC Link in RSLinx to RSView32 but I am not sure where to paste it or where I am copying it to.
  5. RsView32 OPC Server

    I would like to know the answer to that question too.
  6. Copy DDE/ OPC Link

    Everytime I try to run my project I am getting a fault saying "Client could not be connected to OPC Server" I was told to copy DDE/ OPC Link but where should I paste it, my right pane is blank. I cannot see my tags offline/ online in left pane. Any suggestions? What is Data Tag Address?
  7. RSLinx Pro and RSView32

    I update my RSLogix from V9 to v11 and I was able to go online. But I got I/O Not Responding Msg. Description: Module Fault: (Code 16#0115) Electronic Keying Mismatch: Electronic Keying Product Type Mismatch. Module is 1756-IA16 v1.1 set to compatible module. I am still not able to browse my tags in RSview32. My OPC Server and Topic are configured. Quick question: I am about to reinstall RSLogix, RSLinx and RSView32 on a new machine. Sequence for creating my tags in RSLogix and RSView32. Thank You!
  8. RSLinx Pro and RSView32

    I am using RSLogix 5000 version 9.0 (control logix) with RSLinx Pro version 2.40.01 and RSView32 version 6.30.17. Ethernet cross-over cable. I have included some screen shots to show whats really going on. I resolved the IP problem, it was due to a damaged RJ45. I am able to browse the I/Os on the rack in RSWho. I cannot browse my tags, I am getting errors in Tag monitor. I tried going online with RSLogix5000 using Ethernet and got the message in the screen shot. Please note: my PC and PLC are in the same room, I do not require remote access.
  9. RSLogix500 "Key"

    Download file directly to your USB Flash, next connect the flash and 3.5 to PC. Extract EVMOVECF.ZIP and chose current location of keys (which should be A: or B:) to whatever drive your USB is using (eg. E: F:, G: etc) and move them to destination (which would be your USB Flash Drive). Very simple. Wish you luck! http://www.software.rockwell.com/support/d...ail.cfm?ID=3428
  10. RSLinx Pro and RSView32

    Sorry guys but I think I configure the driver incorrectly. Driver configurations: Station 0. Should this field have any data or left blank? I assigned my ENBT IP to station 0 and I need to know if this is correct. I left station 1 blank. My controller (L55) is in slot 0, ENBT in slot 1 and various I/Os from slot 2 through slot 11. I cannot browse anything. My IP is 130.130.130.1 for NIC and 130.130.130.2 for 1756-ENBT.
  11. RSLinx Pro and RSView32

    I need some help urgently! I am running Control Logix, RSLinx Pro (v: 2.40.01), with RSView32 (v: 6.30.17) and my display has no data. My driver (ETHERNET) is properly configured and browsing. My topic and channel are set. Node is set to topic. My tag monitor is returning stale and error messages. I tried everything: created new Node (OPC Server-local). My question, should the controller key be set to RUN or REM (remote)? Do I need to configure DCOM. My setup is as follows: Channel: 1 Network Type: TCP/IP Primary Communication Driver: AB_ETH-1 Messages: 3 Active Driver:Primary Data Source: OPC Server Name: USA (enabled) Server Name: RSLinx OPC Server Server Type: Local Access Path: (blank) Tag Database (added) Scan Class (default)
