    Micrologix 1200 and software question

    Hi, I have just bought a second hand AB 1200 Micrologix PLC and 2 modules with a view to learning more about PLCs' and how to program and interact with them. One thing I overlooked was the software available to program them!

    I have downloaded and installed the free software as per the help on this forum. My question is will I be able to use this software to program my 1200? As we all know with the free software I only get 1000 and 1100 options.

    Any advice would be warmly welcome as I am a complete novice when it comes to PLC's,

    Thanks inn advance,

    Mike

    Good afternoon Mike,

    To program the MicroLogix 1200, 1400, or 1500 at a minimum you'll need a copy of RSLogix Micro Starter (not lite) which according to proposal works is current around $150:

    9324-RLM0100ENE, RSLogix Micro Starter, English - Digital Download $145.00
    9324-RLM0100ENM, RSLogix Micro Starter, English - DVD $145.00 (also includes Digital Download last time I checked)

    You could also ask your local distributor for a 30 temporary license, but I'm not sure if that will help:

    Hope this helps,
