Flashback Friday! RSLogix 500 "Providence Beer" Demo



Welcome to The Automation Blog's “Flashback Friday!”

Today I'm highlighting my RSLogix 500 “Providence Beer” demo.

Providence Beer LadderThe 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.
