  1. Could someone please printout the attached .ACD files for me? I need to reprogram this modified unit using a Micrologix 1500 PLC system and I don't have RSLogix 5000 software to view the old program it ran with before. Thank you!
  2. Hi, I'm building an AOI in RSLogix 5000 to connect to a 3D Vision sensor. This sensor has an object called a Region Of Interest (ROI), the value of which I output from my AOI as "MyTag.ROI1", "MyTag.ROI2" and so on, up to as many as 20 ROIs. My question is this: Not every instance of the vision sensor will use all 20 ROIs. I want to be able to select how many MyTag.ROI# outputs are visible per each AOI instance, but it appears I can only toggle the parameter output visibility on a global scale. I don't want each AOI to have 20 outputs visible and hogging space if, for example, only 3 are used. On the other hand, I do want the outputs to be visible on the AOI block, and not hidden. Is this possible, and if so, how do I do it? Thanks
  3. RSLogix 5000

    For all those who cant find a demo/trial version of RSLogix 5000 can download one from here http://files.rockwellautomation.com/UR/V17_Demo.zip Thanks.
  4. I'm just starting to learn Ladder Logic Programming. I'm using Allen Bradley RSLogix 5000. I've been tasked with developing a 'Simple' Coffee Machine which operates like so: Toggle Push Button to StartDrop Cup (for 10 seconds)Feed Hot Water (for 10 seconds)If required, Add Milk (for 10 seconds)If required, Add Sugar (for 10 seconds)Procedure Complete - Illuminate Complete Light (for 10 seconds)I have implemented everything except the OPTIONAL add Milk & OPTIONAL add Sugar. Options are: To have a Coffee without either Milk or Sugar.Or have a Coffee with Milk and Not Sugar.Or have a Coffee with Sugar & Not Milk.Or have a Coffee with BOTH Sugar & Milk. I'm considering using Toggle Buttons to select / jump to a Subroutine (choosing the required ingredient make-up). But I'm wondering if there is another way to sequentially go through the procedure? Thanks. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/26930902/ladder-logic-simple-coffee-machine-optional-add-milk-add-sugar?noredirect=1#comment42839041_26930902
  5. I'm having a bit of difficulty with the MSG function on a logix5000. I'm simply trying to get a REAL value ("BH5_Flow") out of another logix5000 and assign it to a tag in the PLC. I've created a MSG function and created a new tag "BH_5_Flow_MSG" for the message, and created "BH5_Flow_M" for the value that will come from the MSG function. When I click the "..." button to bring up the config, I put the following in: Message Type: CIP Data Table ReadSource Element: BH5_FLOWNumber Of Elements: 1Destination Element: BH5_FLOW_MIn the PATH tab, i then put the following in: Path: LocalENB, 2, [iP ADDRESS OF SOURCE MACHINE]When I test the edits, I then get the ERR bit activate with error 16#0004 when the message rung runs. Anyone got any ideas where Im going wrong? I've practically copied another MSG instruction from further up the ladder but it doesn't seem to work
  6. I am planning on buying a new laptop computer and I need to be able to run RSLogix Micro Starter Lite and RSLinx Lite (the free download version). The release notes for RSLogix Micro Starter Lite list which operating systems are supported. Windows 8.1 is not on the list, but that is the operating system that will be on the new computer that I am looking at. Does anyone know if it will run on Win 8.1? I would sure appreciate any information I could get on this. Thanks Mark
