logix5000 driver


logix5000 driver configuration

Each I/O point name (e.g. BOOL_IN_0) represents an existent PLC tag. It is defined by setting a Prefix (1) and an Offset (2) index which will be added to the prefix for each point created (e.g. BOOL_IN_3). Count defines the number of I/O points to use for each data type. You may choose any prefix you wish, as long as each I/O point has a matching tag defined on the PLC. When connected to a PLC, non-existent tags or tags with an error are grayed out. Hover the mouse cursor over a grayed out point to get relevant information about the error.

Auto connect Periodically tries to connect to the PLC until a successful connection is established.
Host PLC network name or IP address.
Slot / Path CPU slot / path.
Bool Inputs Name of the PLC's tags for Boolean inputs (max 128).
Bool Outputs Name of the PLC's tags for Boolean outputs (max 128).
Float Inputs Name of the PLC's tags for Float inputs (max 32).
Float Outputs Name of the PLC's tags for Float outputs (max 32).
Int Inputs Name of the PLC's tags for Integer inputs (max 32).
Int Outputs Name of the PLC's tags for Integer outputs (max 32).
Default Click to reset to the default options.
