Welcome to The Automation Blog's “Flashback Friday!”
Today I'm highlighting my RSLogix 500 “Providence Beer” demo.
The year was 1996 and I was tasked with designing a “hands-on” seminar for the new PanelView 550. The hands-on labs I needed to create would include setting up communications, as well as basic screen creation.
In order to do this, I would need several PLC's running some kind of simulation program. To address that, I created this RSLogix 500 program.
It's a simple program that demonstrates recipe handling, as well as simulates various process variable for display on the PanelView.
Posted on my original website back in 2002, you can now find this article and sample code HERE on The Automation Blog:
