Re: [Fishing ?]: RSLogix 5000 - Removing source protection

Is it possible to upload the program on your computer? If so, then you could export to an .L5X file and use the tool from above in this thread. I havent tried with a real live PLC that is locked, so it depends on how it was locked. The PLC lock is something completely different, it is not possible ...

Re: Logix CPU Security

Fixed that for you.

Vendors lock PLCs for two reasons:

1. To protect their intellectual property.
2. To stop idiots messing with the code and killing themselves, or other people.

Re: Upload AB PLC 5

Howdo,

You will need RSLogix5 & RSLinx software and an RS232 cable as a minimum. There are other connectivity options available depending on the PLC5 type, but the serial cable will probably be the cheapest option for you.

Re: Problem in uploading from Logix5561

No, that's not how it works with AB - the version of Logix you are using has to match the controller firmware.

In this case you will need Logix v16, have a look here or here.

Re: [?]: RSLOGIX 500 ver 8.3 is not correctly installed

It's highly possible that it's due to an invalid serial number.
You can correct this in the registry:

Code: Select all

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Rockwell Software\RSLogix 500 English\UserInfo
A valid serial for RSLogix 500 is 1012169604

From the Rockwell knowledgebase: 1. Search your PC for RSEds.dll - default path C:\Program Files\Rockwell Software\RSCommon 2. Download RSEds.zip and unzip 3. Replace RSEds.dll on PC with the downloaded one 4. Test, if it still fails then try a repair installation of RSLogix 5000 version 20 RSEds.zip

Those videos make no mention of emulator analog modules whatsoever.

RSEmulate is a controller emulator and not a process simulator, if you want to manipulate analog values then you will have to either change them manually from the tag monitor, or write simulation code to do what you need to do.
