  1. Dear Shawn,
    we have an application deploying panel view micro 300 and compact logix L32 connected via serial DF1. Recently, we have to replace the panel view with panel view 800. we have successfully re-configure the panel view application to be suitable for panel view 800. the problem is that the panel view can not access the mapped integer data files in compact logix and gives alerts of no access or error in writing to tag , while it can access real tags. we followed steps given in below link

    • Good morning Amr,

      Sounds like you’re 90% there with the reals working but not the integers.

      Can you check to see if the Integer array you mapped is a 16 bit INT, and not a 32 bit DINT?

      PS – The process I used in this video for DH-485 would be nearly identical for DF1 and CompactLogix.

      Hope this helps,
