    Good afternoon @NARAYAN...

    Good afternoon @NARAYAN,

    I've never tried hooking up a new USB Printer to an old PanelView Standard.

    What you'll need to find is an RS-232 to USB printer converter cable, which seems to be...

    Thanks for your comments bhosay, still haven't found a workaround for 5069 I/O :-(

    Hoping to get my hands on a S7-1200 in the near future, and tips you can share?

    Wow, thanks for writing this up!

    Good afternoon @yannick,

    Hey, thanks for sharing that!

    Unfortunately that does help in my scenario as the 16 inputs (or outputs) don't become part of a DINT like with the 5370, so all my...

    Good morning Carissa,

    Sorry I missed your post. I'm sure at this point you've probably found your answers, but for those who come after here's some food for thought:

    1) I've never run into an...

    @BB32152,

    I'll let the article and video speak for themselves :-)

    If you decide you don't want to write Excel VBA code to automate data collection, there are lots of products out there that...

    pct_jimmy,

    Thanks for your comments. Yeah, I was a little stunned that they changed the I/O bit addressing (why change something that works?) and that there are no Encompass modules yet for the...

    Good morning jamesonline,

    Thanks for sharing your experience! I'm a fan of the L1 as well, and it's great that it can also control remote Ethernet I/O (unlike the Micros.)

    I also avoided the...

  11. Good morning @estan...

    Good morning @estan,

    I think the best place for you to get the details would be in the products manual, but the a quick answer is that if your recipes are always written to the same set of tags in...

    Good morning @Engineer...

    Good morning @Engineer,

    Not sure what your question is because the Micro820 appears to support everything you want to do?

    If you've never programmed Micro820 communications and need help, I'd...
  14. Good morning @land5150...

    Good morning @land5150,

    Did you try to upload from the PVPlus to see if you could open that .MER in ViewStudio? If you can, you should see in the Recipe config where the Recipe file is being...

    Good afternoon @pico-dc,

    As you say, nesting is possible.

    In fact, if you check out Rockwell's PlantPAx Process Library you will find they use nesting of AOIs quite a bit.

    Good morning Texasknowhow,

    Which video are you referring to?

    Good morning @EPHRAIM,

    1) Which RSLogix do you have - it will show at the top of the program in the title bar, something like RSLogix 500, Micro, Micro Starter, Micro Starter Lite
    2) Try remote...

    Good morning EPHRAIM,

    I've never seen a VGA cable that wasn't 15 pins.

    That said, PLC to HMI 9 Pin Serial cable is a standard serial cable you can purchase for $5, so why not just use the...

  22. @arbj...

    @arbj,

    Since the Micro800 and CompactLogix both support EthernetIP but are different, your best bet might be to ask your local distributor to borrow a Micro800 and CompactLogix, and then spend a...

    arbj,

    My recommendation would be based on your budget, which you didn't mention.
