  1. Hi guys. I have a question, with HMI pages. I have to make 20 pages 3 times. Its kind of like layer in layer. At the and of the layers always there are only 2 choices. But ofc course its important the route like what the choose, and what is the order. Like we have to detect lets say first layer page2 second layer page13 third layer is page5 and then we choose the first choice. But if the order is different we have to get a different input from the choice1, like we need different address. I could do that if I make ton of pages, but its sounds crazy. A lot of permutation. (20*20*20*2) I attached a picture maybe its easier to understand if Im not explained well. I am using AB control logix PLC, with logix 5000 software. Do have someone a good and quicker idea, to solve this problem.  Thanks ahead. Any idea is highly appriciated.    
  2. Hi guys,  I have been thinking about wether can increase the numbers of produced and consumed tags, between my plc-s. Currently I have two plc it already have produced and consumed tags, but unfortunatelly soon we are running out of free tags. I read the manual and it said I can make 125 dint tags, currently we have only an array with 10 element.  If I make a new one and I kinda copy it, with different names, will it be work ?  Or do I have to set something else ?  Can I ruin the communication with the two plcs ?  THanks ahead.
  3. Hello guys! I'm interesting about rfid communication. I currently using control logix and compact logix plcs, and rslogix 5000 software. I'm wondering if someone can help me with a sample project, or any documentation. Its also can be wonderful if someone can share a project with panelview if its possible. I wanna know about reading and also writing. What type of device do you guys using ? I would like to make a simple program what is contain reading and writing. Thank you ahead any help of yours.     
  4. controller is not coming online with rslogix 5000, but i can ping the ip from the pc. getting the error message says "controller failed to come online - error 701-8004250B" appreciate ur help.
  5. hello, I want to ask, maybe some of you know about this, I want to take a program on compactlogix but it has a firmware version 19.xx while the rslogix application I have is version 21.xx, there are several options offered by the application to be able to take the program, update the firmware in compactlogix or downgrade the rslogixku application to version 19.xx. if i upgrade the firmware in compactlogix, what about the program is the program safe or not, and if i upgrade the firmware will the program in compactlogix work properly?
  6. CommandLogix

    Version 1.0.2


    COMMAND LOGIX is a command line tool that works with Logix Services to automate various functions in Logix using a CLX file as setup. The functions include Upload, Download, Partial Imports, Mode Change, etc. The tool comes with an editor to create the setup file. This tool is really useful if you have multiple tools to update or if you have a couple updates to make and you don't want to wait for RSLogix to load.

  8. I have 23 Micrologix 1400s and I want to take the same register, N100:99, out of each one and put in a single array in a CompactLogix L18ER. From what I have tried, it only seems like I can only map a range of integers, N100:77-N100:100, to the array and not an individual register to a particular element. (For example, mapping N100:99 from machine 16 to Selected_Model[15]) Can you map to individual elements in an array? If so, are there any instructions on how to do so? Thank you in advance for reading my post!
  9. Hi! I'm using RSLinx Classic, RSLogix Micro English and RSLogix Emulate 500 to emulate a Micrologix 1100 Series B. I'm able to run, program and simulate different input and output with the emulated PLC. Everything works fine. My problem is that I'm writing a program using the nodePCCC library ( and I'm not able to connect to the emulated PLC using the address and the port 44818. I tried  running 'netstat -a' on Power Shell and I found out that the port 44818 is not being used.  Could someone help me identify what I'm doing wrong?
  10. Hello guys!  Im using RS Logix 5000.  Can someone explain me what is the difference between when a servo is shutdown or disabled ?  I read the help but it says the same. I can assume it like when its shutdown, there is inside some circuit which is not allow the 3 phase for the drive.  Disabled is that when it have the 3 phase but nothing can happen ? Is there any difference with the break ? Like when its shutdown it can rotate until its slow down by itself or the break will be active ?  I tried to uplod a pic but it was not succesful. When you open a servo axis properties and you choose the Fault actions tab. You can find there these settings.    Thanks a lot. 
  11. Hello Guys! I have couple of questions about tuning an ab servo motor. -Actually what does the drive or plc doing when I launch a servo auto tuning?  - What are the little boxes like position error integrator ? There are checkmarks in fornt of the lines. Can I choose the methode or something? I mean its not "auto" ? Why it is auto then ? - Can someone send me some basic literature where they explain me what these stuff acutally meaning ?  - What is the hook up test what for is good ?  -When you are doing a servo auto tune what are the parameters that you are monitoring and why ?  -I should do the auto without or with load ? Whats the difference ? I know there are so many question I would be so grateful if someone could help me with these answears, or even just with one. Thanks again. 
  12. Hello! I am using the Plant PAX AOI L_CPU_24_Up and am having zero luck finding out both independently and from tech support what the 16 bits of the Ref_Out.Identity.Status are. The description says Tag to receive CPU data, device status (bitmapped, see documentation).  I have a techconnect contract, but cant find the correct documentation where this information lives.  Could someone please send me a link or just give me the number of the publication.  I attached a screen shot of tag info I am looking for. Thank you!!!!    
  13. Hello Folks... The pictures show it all... I just need to produce a one-shot inside the IF...THEN, and the Oneshot's input bit goes from 0 to 1 as you see from the trend, but the output bit is not going to 1, or giving a pulse ? can anyone help me understand why i am not getting a pulse in this code ? And is there another easy way to get pulse inside IF...THEN without changing the condition which activates the if loop ? Thanks in advance for your time
  14. I have a Base tag of BOOL logic that will not activate the MOV output.  The Base tag is paralleled with an Alias tag for a NO pushbutton.  When the pushbutton is actuated it produces the desired output.  Has anyone encountered this issue from a togglebit base tag before?  Why would a base tag produce a different outcome from that of an alias tag that function properly?
  15. Can anyone explain to me what this would mean in a COP instruction? Source: #N[N187:4]:[N187:5] Dest: #N[N187:1]:0 Length: 20 I am doing a PLC5 conversion to rslogix5000 and some (most) of it has been a nightmare -.-
  16. I have a counter tracking the number of cases packed through a robot program and an option to count less than a case (pack now). In order to update the correct number, I'm using math (ADD) to increment the counter by one.  I used that in conjunction with a MOV instruction to increment up the counter by one.  However, when I energize the button, my accumulated value goes up by +220 or so. Any way to fix this?
  17. Can I download an old program (written with RS Logix 500 version 5.2) into a newer SLC 5/04 Series C with a higher FRN than my copy of RS Logix supports? I don't want to use any newer functionality. Just wanting to get a spare 5/04 and load the application software on so it is ready to swap out in the event of a failure. I see some 5/04's on eBay that are new in box but have a FRN of 11 which wasn't out at the time my version of RSLogix was created.  
  18. Hi Guys. I have a trouble to determine the dispersion of an array. Like I have an array what have 1000 elements. I need to know the dispersion of the numbers. I checked but I didnt find any instruction for this. Im using RS Logix 5000. Can someone pls help me out ?  Thanks in advance.
  19. Hi all. How to replace an Ethernet ip communications module(1756 en2t) with a new one if the old one stops working. What should be done to configure the new module in rx logix? Should I set the IP address? Or is it plug and play? Thanks in advance.
  20. Hi, All!  I am very new to PLCs and I am currently writing ladder logic for an Allen bradley MLX1200.  I have a number of inputs which i have addressed in the format: I:1.0/1 etc. which should equate to I:Slot.Word/Terminal. I have checked the SLC 500 Instruction Set document which has informed me that this format should be structured correctly however I still receive the error message "ERROR: Address must be specified to the word level!"  Can anyone see where I am going wrong?  For reference Slot 1 is a 4-Channel Thermocouple Input Module (1762-IT4).  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks C
  21. Team Can anyone help me converting the *.RSS file to PDF format.   R8-41335.RSS
  22. I have came across some Allen Bradley SLC processors with no backups running version 3 firmware. Does anyone have software that old or a connection? Rockwell will not support. Any assistance will get appreciated!
  23. I had two esoteric question I was curious if anyone might be able to help with. First, I am playing around with way to monitor the internals of a PLC and I was curious if anyone has any idea on why to pull the internal memory off a ControlLogix 5580. Ideally, I would like to avoid just directly reading the config out and reading individual tags. I prefer to be able to get a little deeper.  Something similar to the crash dump, the RSlogix software can generator or something like the S7dump.exe tool for the S7 PLCs i.e. getting at the actual memory in specific memory addresses. Second, I was curious if anyone knew anyway to grab the actual binary are sent over to the controllogix after the RSLogix 5000 processes a configuration file. In this case I am looking for something similar to the binary files in codesys not the project file. This might be an assumption. Maybe RSLogix doesn’t ever produce anything like that but I figured I would ask
  24. I'm attempting to make a backup of a program, complete with comments. I go connect to the PLC over Ethernet, and select Use Upload File to merge the comments from an original copy of the program. After that, I go file-saveas to backup the program. However the new saved file, complete with comments is only 134 KB, and the very original copy of the program is 230 KB, from 2003. Is there a reason for this, the program hasn't shrunk in size, only minor tweaking of some span calibration numbers.
  25. We have two computers and a plc that we use for training purposes to teach new techs the basics of going online with a plc and simple troubleshooting techniques. For some reason a couple classes ago we started getting an error from one of the pc's when we would try and download a program to our teaching plc. The exact same .ACD file can be downloaded to the plc with no issues from pc-1 but from pc-2 it gives the error attached below. I tried uninstalling all Rockwell related software from pc-2 and reinstalling but this didn't solve anything. Once I download using pc-1, pc-2 is able to go online with the plc and make edits no problem; it is just the downloading of the .ACD file it cannot seem to do. Processor: 1756-L55 ControlLogix5555 Firmware Version: 16.21 pc-1 OS: Windows 7 pc-2 OS: Windows 7 I'll be happy to include any extra details if needed but my team and I are just at a loss. Just short of formatting pc-2 we have no idea what could be causing this.
