  1. Thanks a lot !!
    It’s a great move from Rockwell to give free access to this library. Version 2.0 has several cons, like not having P_Gate’s in P_AnalogInput HiHi, Hi, Lo, LoLo. but version 3.0 solved this. I’m going to check what’s new in 3.10

    Great tip

    Greetings from Spain

    • ragundo,

      Thanks for your reply and greetings from across the Atlantic!

      I’ve also very glad they made this free and can wait to play around with them to see what’s new.

      If you do get a chance to check out 3.1 please let us know what you think 🙂

      Have a great weekend,

      Shawn Tierney

  2. Thanks for the POST it was really helpful an advance I would like to know if there is any object that helps to integrate a Schneider VFD and softstarters Altistart , Iam using a Prosoft Card With a CLX .

    • Good morning Manuel,

      I’ve found when using Prosoft cards that bench testing the system with the Prosoft sample code is the best way for me to learn how to setup the communication.

      I would also say if something doesn’t make sense contact the Prosoft tech support right away as I’ve found their support to be pretty good.

      Hope this helps,
