I am not getting communications set-up correctly in a message in CompactLogix. Here is what I am trying “1, LocalENB, 2, 10.220.59.212”
- Can you ping the RMC?
- Hopefully you have an Ethernet cable that you know works
- What is the IP address of the RMC, the PLC and your laptop?
- We have example programs. I don’t think we have one specifically for the CompactLogix but you should be able to copy and paste the rungs with the MSG blocks from a Control Logix block into a Compact Logix blocked and then tweak the blocks so the compact logix accepts them.
- I know that one of our guys has a compact logix with about 8 or 10 RMCs connected to it. I will ask tomorrow.
I am talking to the PLC over the network, and developing the HMI that software is on an other network. I am having no comms issues there. The PLC is 10.220.59.211 the RMC is 10.220.59.212 the laptop get assigned a address in the same range.
Perhaps the problem is with the message block. I am using your ControlLogix example thing it would be the same for the CompactLogix. I will check that out thanks.
FYI I was trying to make it too hard. All it needs is. “LocalENB, 2, 10.220.59.212”
