Good morning visitors,
If you're new to The Automation Guy blog, this is where I post about what I've working on over at The Automation Blog, Minute, Podcast, and School.
Recently in preparation for recording some advanced communication lessons in my ControlLogix course, PAC Basics course, I took a break from filming lessons to created some new content for my YouTube channel.
The result is over two hours of free PLC communications videos releasing in the next three weeks.
It all starts with The Automation Minute Season 3, Episode 9, in which I discuss the odd fact that Rockwell now states you need RSLogix 500 to program the MicroLogix, while the much less expensive RSLogix Micro will do.
Next in Episode 10, we take a look at the programming cables needed to program the MicroLogix family of PLCs.
And to wrap the series up, in The Automation Podcast Episode 36, I show where I find demos for all of the above PLC's, as well as the process I used to re-configure and download them.
In total, the result is over two hours of free PLC connectivity videos which I'm hoping people will find useful for many years to come.
