  1. 1756-L61 ControlLogix 5561 losing program

    On the series A the program was lost if the battery goes dead. On the series B, the battery is used strictly for the internal clock. The program would be stored in an internal flash memory. Not a compact flash card.
  2. Add on instructions (FB's)

    All changes to AOI's must be done offline. 
  3. Cannot open a FT View Archive File (.apa)

    I only questioned it because I wanted to know how far to upgrade my software...
  4. Cannot open a FT View Archive File (.apa)

        Since when? I have never had this issue before!
  5. RSLogix 5000 BOOL Base tag not activating output

    Am I missing something here? You say the base tag has no cross-references or duplicate tags. How is this bit being controlled? Are you just toggling this bit in the PLC? What exactly is turning this bit on?
  6. Auto assign IP PowerFlex 525

    Are you using the embedded Ethernet Adapter? Or a COMM adapter? If using a BootP server, you need to have C-128 set to a 2. Remember to power cycle after you change the parameter.  
  7. Micro830 -Calculating Flow Rate from pulses with EII

    I was just curious myself is why I looked it up. Honestly never gave it much thought until this post. 
  8. Micro830 -Calculating Flow Rate from pulses with EII

    From the manual here:   https://literature.rockwellautomation.com/idc/groups/literature/documents/rm/1756-rm003_-en-p.pdf    Page 852.   These processors use a LINT as well:   LINT data type is a 64-bit integer. The LINT data type can be used in numerous instructions on Compact GuardLogix 5380, CompactLogix 5380, CompactLogix 5480, ControlLogix 5580, or GuardLogix 5580 controller however the LINT data type cannot be used in most instructions on CompactLogix 5370, ControlLogix 5570, Compact GuardLogix 5370, GuardLogix 5570 controllers. Consider the following when using LINT data type on CompactLogix 5370, ControlLogix 5570, Compact GuardLogix 5370, GuardLogix 5570 controllers.   Tip: LINTs can only be used with copy (COP, CPS) instructions. They are used with the CST/WallClock Time attribute, time synchronization and Add-On Instructions. You cannot add, subtract, multiply, or divide this tag type.
  9. RSView32 Key Function

    That is the command. But don't you have to enable/disable that in the startup editor? Been a while for me too.
  10. powerflex 525

    I miss the days when discovery actually worked! Been pretty hit or miss lately!

    Maybe see this?    http://www.plctalk.net/qanda/showthread.php?t=74463
  12. SAFE Torque OFF Status

    If you are not using any safe torque off wiring, make sure you have a jumper installed into S1, S2, and S+. This will bypass the integrated safe torque off feature.   Also, if not using the safe torque off, the drive must be set at the default settings. I.E. right out of the box states.
  13. OTE instruction

    There you go then! Nothing executes in program mode.
  14. OTE instruction

    To clarify, you are in remote mode and not program mode?  
  15. PowerFlex 525 PID Feedback

    Maybe try this link? Honestly I didn't read it, so you may have tried this already.     https://367he63vt2ig32zhzt329os1-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/tech-topic-pid-setup.pdf
