    Hey DaleW,

    Yeah, with those jobs the biggest thing to look for is the existing DNET mapping in the 1500.

    Also, making sure the data ends up in the same place in the new program since the 1500...

    Good morning DaleW,

    I don't have any DeviceNet training currently - it's something I want to do but don't have scheduled.

    I hope to do a video on DeviceNet for The Automation Show later this...

    Good morning usama,


    Congrats!


    You can also select Auto Config for the runtime as well, but keep in mind that "auto config" only runs when the PanelView Plus boots up. I personally prefer...

    Good morning rickey painter,

    I've been running v30 for awhile without issue, but I did have to set it to run as administrator: https://theautomationblog.com/studio-5000-fatal-error-5/

    Good morning @usama,

    First, I'd suggest opening your SLC-5/03 program and checking the channel 0 configuration, and then make the configuration in RSLinx Enterprise match. I have a few videos of...

    Good morning PDashnaw,

    Yes there is - you can definitely message through the 1756-DHRIO across the backplane and out the 1756-ENBT.

    I haven't filmed an episode doing that yet, but you should...

    Good morning @welshcnc,

    Absolutely - I've done this myself (but not since 2018) and wrote about it here: https://theautomationblog.com/saving-money-rockwell-software-upgrades/

    Good morning again AndyLadbrook,

    I kind of thought you did. It really is no problem to pull up ViewPoint on mobile devices inside the plant (assuming the plant has wifi,) but to connect safely...

    Good morning @AndyLadbrook,

    You could definitely allow him to "dial into" your FTVP server, but does he really have a phone modem?

    If he did, he could view the Viewpoint screens assuming he had...

    Good morning RoboTeal,

    If your PanelView Plus does not have a goto config button, there are a couple of different methods to get to the Configuration Menu as I describe in my article here:

    Good morning AndyLadbrook,

    IMO, you're best solution would be to install a VPN so you could remotely connect to ViewPoint over the internet.

    When the predecessor to ViewPoint first came out, I...

    Did you try this?

    This is also the below tech note (requires support contract) which has a free preview which says: "The PanelView Plus system date/time is incorrect. Solution Do the following: Go...

    Good morning @maitrey27,

    My first suggestion would be to open this display in View Studio and search for a "Parameter" as it sounds like a parameter being used on this display is not right.

    Good afternoon Catlett,

    Both products are good, but also very different.

    XLReporter is less expensive and focused on using Excel for reports, while Dream Report is more expensive but also more...

    Good afternoon @Rankhornjp,

    This article isn't about downloading a copy of the Firmware Wizard. I do have an older article on doing that below:

    Good morning FarmerJ,

    Could be a few different things, including the port isn't set to System (Point-To-Point)

    First thing I would do is open the offline file and check the settings of channel...

    Good morning @bodboy92,

    You can easily use VBA scripting inside of Excel to accomplish this.

    Well, first you need to know how to use VBA, and there are some good books here: ...

    Good morning bodboy92,

    The pictures are really small - hard to see what they say?

    In any case, I'd recommend starting at page 15 in the below lab and paging through to see if you find the...

    Good afternoon @kmayreis,

    I wish I could help but I don't have any experience with the IQ-F plcs. We do have an upcoming article planned for later this week that might help - and the author typically will try to answer...

    Good morning @bodboy92,

    In response to your statement, "For the CSV file, it doesn't update the data once I close the file" I'm confused - MS Excel can't update a file when it's not open and...

    Good morning @bodboy92,

    In the article and video you reference, I have a PC connected to a PLC via a paid copy of RSLinx (not the free "Lite" version.)

    Then on the PC, in an Excel file, I use...
