Simmi posted a topic in Allen BradleyHello, I am hoping I can get some assistance configuring an Allen Bradley PanelView C600 (2711C-T6C). All a long I have been able to communicate with the HMI using Ethernet protocol, but after I switched communication settings to what my Professor recommended by using the Panelview software, the Ethernet connection seems to have stopped working. The HMI has now been reset to the factory settings (by pressing ctrl + shift during start up then selecting F1 when prompt appears asking if the user desires to return to factory condition of terminal). Once the terminal resets I am able to eventually get to the configuration screen. When in the communication settings Protocol says "*", Status says "Unavailable", I've changed the device name to "plc" and the Node Address says "0". When I click on the "Ethernet" option the IP mode says "DHCP" then the IP Address, Mask and Gateway all read "0.0.0.0". I get into CMD/DOS PROMPT on my laptop while the terminal is connected to my laptop via an Ethernet cable and type in "ipconfig" to see if my laptop is communicating with the terminal but it is not. The lights where the terminals are located are also not blinking. After plugging in several different Ethernet chords from the terminal to my laptop I am convinced the issue is not the cable. I've tried resetting the terminal several times as well and I'm having no luck. Can anyone assist me with regaining Ethernet communication with the terminal or some work-arounds? I see there is an option to use the USB but it looks like AB no longer provides the drivers on the website. If it helps, the manuals I am using are 2711C-UM001 and 2711C-QS001.
python01 posted a topic in Allen BradleyI am working on a project with Micrologix 1400 and PanelView C600 I am not able to communicate over Ethernet with any device and my computer. I was not able to load the HMI screens so I don't know if they are communicating between themselves. The RSLinx does not see any device connected via Ethernet. I am using EtherNet/IP driver for this, not sure if that is right. I have tried connecting directly to each device from PC over ethernet and also connecting to them through switch. I can however ping each device and the packets are coming back. The IP assignments are as follows: 192.168.0.1 Router 192.168.0.2 PLC 192.168.0.3 HMI 192.168.0.25 PC Would anyone have any suggestions what I need to try to get this resolved? I was able to communicate with the MicroLogix via serial port but was not able to communicate with the PanelView through serial port at all. I have tried using the USB-2711-NC13 cable for the PanelView connection. Thank you.
