    Good afternoon @maitrey27,

    Yes, you have to add the .0 and .3 yourself - sadly it's been that way for a long time :-(

    Good morning @rwcanary,

    Setup the Design/Local paths for your shortcuts only if you wish to test run the application on your PC - it also does not have to match the Target/Runtime tab as I show in...

    Good morning @rwcanary,

    Could be several reasons why you're not seeing communication paths based on your SW and HW versions, and which tab is missing the paths. But worse case you can pull them up...

    Good afternoon qanggoro,

    From your pictures you have yet to ADD a new Emulate 5000 controller to your virtual chassis?

    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,

    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,
