    Good afternoon jimmackey

    In RSLogix, open the I/O configuration and click on "Adv Config" - that's where you change the base for the 1500.

    I honestly don't think changing the series of the base...

    Good afternoon @pat_utimate,

    In the PanelView Plus we'd do this with a Derived Tag expression triggered RemoteMarco, but you could also just repeat the expression everywhere you needed to display...

    Good morning @LcAuto,

    Thanks for your question.

    As you probably have found, it's not easy to find DH-485 to Ethernet converters, and every option I can think of isn't cheap :-(

    A few options...

    Good morning @maitrey27,

    I'm not sure I understand you correctly, but I'll give it a shot:

    If you need to turn on an LED, just wire it to your PLC output... most PLC transistor outputs can...

    Good morning @maitrey27,

    I can't be sure without the full diagram, but it looks to me like 11 to 12 is normally closed, and 11 to 14 is normally open. So energizing the coil from the PLC output...

    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.

    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...
