    Thank you very much, Shawn! You saved my day!

    I don't like their paywall either. I signed up once for a year but just to find out that they still could screw things up even you pay the money. I...

    Yeah I'm glad too! Yes there is a free program call Wondershare Filmora9, the free version does leave a watermark at the bottom of the video but its really not that.

    I finally figure this out! I ended up downloading a video editing software and used it to changed the resolution size of the video. Once this was done the Panelview would play the video at that size....

    I am a fan of both of them. Cost wise they tend to be a wash for the most part. I have found you cannot really make any general statement about which solution will cost less without pricing up the...

    I quite enjoyed the Flex/IO in the previous generation of wiring field devices because an input 3-wire sensor cable could be fully terminated in the same spot with the +24 and common directly under...

    Another difference I've found between Flex and Point I/O is how analog modules work in a Logix 5000 application. The Logix platform doesn't support the SCP instruction (without using an AOI), but...

    as far as i know, no other way to edit routine viewable option in ML1400,
    only 1 at a time since each is stored as separate memory block within controller to call.
    i usually have only 3 to 8...
  9. Good to know this

    Thanks again for another "heads up".

    Thankfully I am already using the encrypted password option for each ladder routine. I think this is a solid option. The only catch is that, if you have a...

    I always use Alias tags for everything. Luckily I developed that habit of using symbols in SLCs & PLC5s and I have encouraged every new controls engineer to do the same. Online editing of tags has...

    I advocate for IO Mapping, and I advocate using alias tags. However my interpretations of pros and cons seems to be a bit different than most.

    IO Mapping allows me to continue with software...

    I utilize a controller fault handler routine to capture a few common faults and reset them, mostly the indirect address pointer out of range fault caused by a typo. Using GSV to get fault code and...

    Regarding the 5380 IO tags, when adding a new input card for exemple, you can change the input data format to "packed data":

    But now thinking how most PLC have LAN access and maybe...
