Back in February I wrote this article about converting MicroLogix programs to the Micro800 by using CCW and the MicroLogix Library Converter.
However, along with the release of CCW 11 there is an updated version of the MicroLogix to Micro800 Converter utility that has been updated to support converting the entire family of MicroLogix controllers to Micro800s.
Just as with previous versions of the tool, you'll first need to export your MicroLogix program to a .SLC library file, a capability not available in RSLogix Micro Starter or the free Lite version of the same software.
If you do find your version of RSLogix is not able to export your program to a library file, I'd recommend contacting your local Rockwell distributor or representative and kindly asking them to preform the export on your behalf (as shown in this article.)
I've also recorded an updated video demonstrating this new feature, and have embedded it below:
