Jasen posted a topic in Allen BradleyHello. I am working on a pilot project building an automated RV park. Our goal is to have people sign in online, or in person at a kiosk. Make their reservation, payment, and get their confirmation e-mail. In that e-mail, will be a QR, or Bar Code, that when scanned at the gate opens the gate, and starts a light that flashes at the site they rented. Power will then be turned on at that site, and a timer in the process will begin, based off their rental time. Once their time has expired, the power at the site will be turned off, controlled by a PLC, and relays. So I am looking for help in all directions. I have some leads on some plug-ins for Wordpress that offer reservations, and other plug-ins that do Bar code production. As far as the web part I have that covered. We can generate a custom barcode, or QR code based on individual rentals and those can be sent to customers. So what I need is someone to help point me in the right direction of equipment that can speak between the online Barcode process and the PLC to allow a process to begin when scanned. Based off their rental parameters their power is turned on or off. Perhaps a SQL query in some form? I haven't used it, but am aware of its capabilities, and this does seem like an application where it would be used. Is there anything that you have used that are tried and true? I know it's a strange request, just hoping someone bites. Thanks in advance for any ideas, I look forward to solving this puzzle, one piece at a time.
I am having the same problem except with Logix5000. I am exporting out of Click programming software. It worked at one point, the export, and the EDS install went fine. When I had to modify the EDS file, I removed it from the database, and when I went to put the new EDS in rsLogix5000, it says it imported it fine, with no errors. But when I attempt to add new module, the newly added EDS file is not in the registry of modules to add. I am not sure what caused this to quit working. I have tried reinstalling all versions of Logix5000, and tried adding the EDS through the Rockwell Software, and running it as Administrator. I've tried doing windows updates, restarting, shutting down, cycling the power on the PLC's. I've tried everything. PLEASE HELP!!!
