  1. Using DHCP in the OT Space

    I.T. needs to stay out of controls.
  2. Use Nat is irrelevant when properly connect via VPN.
  3. Slow Dell Laptop

    Itemize a new laptop 
  4. Connecting Sensors to External devices

    Loop power exists because one cannot trust electricians to power field devices. 
  5. factorytalk view SE

    Slap a panelview on each station. Throw a PC up with view SE for this main blah blah [it's called scada]
  6. Connecting Micro800 to SCADA via SMS

    You need to use tcp not sms
  7. FX5U RS485 and Delta DOP-B03S211

    First you let the customer spec serial communications.  But it's probably something stupid like the Numeric Input widget will not show data read from comms.  
  8. I've been running tests on NODE-RED and I'm impressed so far. The hardware seems to be the only limit I can find.
  9. Auto assign IP PowerFlex 525

    I wouldn't depend on a dhcp reservation to assign an IP to a vfd.
  10. DLR topography is somewhat overblown. Especially as shown in the examples in that document.
  11. SPST Illuminated Momentary Push Button

    Sounds like he got hold of some push to test lights.
  12. I've never seen the right-click method work use the tool.  
  13. Major Fault

    It's a micrologix or an SLC isn't it?  Fault Code = 0002H  accompanied message:"Unexpected hardware watchdog timeout or an ASIC reset occurred. Cannot go online or upload from default processor (no program). You must perform download." This occurs from one of three conditions on AC powered units. AC power browns out slowly. AC power modulates below 50hz before failing The PLC is now a crippled self-bricking POS that can no longer hold a program past a power cycle.
  14. Setting up Crimson 3 emulator with rs emulate

    rslogix emulator connects through a virtual port in RSlinx, so you'll have to get the crimson to read it through the OPC-DA of RSlinx.  I'm unsure if the OPC-DA service runs in RSlogix Lite.
