Good morning! Later this week, i will have to try to figure out how to put a program that's currently running on a MicroLogix 1500 onto a Micro830 controller. Both controllers will have a PanelView Plus 700 HMI connected via serial. I haven't tried this yet, I'm just anticipating problems because it's ...

Phillip, thank you for the very detailed response! I appreciate the pictures, it's much easier to follow. I ended up removing the HMI and PLC and hooking them up in the office for testing. However, i will download the emulate 500 program so i can fully test everything next time without having to do ...

To clarify, i want to communicate on the PC between the two programs.

Thanks for the responses. I believe i was unclear on my question. I would like to be able to run the runtime file, as you show, but also have the PLC program open for that runtime file so i can see and test the inputs in the PLC in real time. I attached a pic of what i'd like to do. My PLC program is ...

I have HMI and PLC programs on my computer that I'm trying to get to work together. I know I can run the runtime file as it shows up on the terminal, but can i connect that to the PLC program i'm using so it behaves as if it were in its installed form? It would be very handy to have the PLC program running ...

Thank you, everyone, for your help. I'm likely to be back on here next week but until then, i'm going camping! Y'all have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend.

So, i had a spare ML1500 sitting around, i dumped the program into it, plugged it in, and the damn thing took off talking.

I should clarify, i changed the run time driver port to com 1 and made sure the device address was set to 1 to match my PLC com port

That is correct. I know that the file i downloaded most recently was working at one point and the problems i've had in the past week or so were not related to that one... So theoretically the communications settings should be unchanged. I just did everything you suggested. I've had my HMI plugged ...

If i have FT View open and use the transfer utility to download a file that previously communicated fine, does it overwrite the communication settings of the file with whatever is open in the background? Because now even the old programs aren't working. I haven't intentionally changed anything about ...

Hopefully yall can enlarge that enough to be able to read it. I changed the com settings to exactly match what Ryan posted and i'm still not communicating. The only thing i've changed throughout this entire process has been the HMI program, everything else remains the same. I have been having issues ...

Also, if I'm using the external memory card to do the file transfer, do i really need anything in the "design" tab?

Thanks for the info GlaDos. I have more questions. I've been able to open an old runtime file that had the functional communications and do some comparing. In the functional one, the device name is under the "serial-DF1" driver and in the non-functional one, the device (in this case a Micrologix 1500 ...

Can someone explain the relationship, in simple terms, between Factory Talk View studio, Factory Talk Linx, HMI, PLC, and the shortcuts under the communications tab? I'm working on a PVP700 running FW 5.10 and connected to a MicroLogix 1500 via serial on CH1. The development environment was FactoryTalk ...
