On June 29th in this article I wrote about Rockwell's recent announcement that the product life cycle designation for the MicroLogix 1000 and 1500 family had been changed to “end of life.”
It then provides a handy “feature and specifications” comparison table, part of which can be seen below:
Chapter 2 covers the selection of a Micro800 to replace a MicroLogix 1000, with helpful tables like the one below for the Micro820:
Chapter 3 walks the user through migrating a sample program from RSLogix 500/Micro to CCW (aka Connected Components Workbench) version 8, using the Pick and Place Machine sample program found in the MicroLogix 1000 documentation as the project being converted.
The final chapter, Chapter 4, covers the functional differences between relay ladder instructions in RSLogix 500/Micro and CCW.
If you get a chance to use this document to aid in converting a program I'd like to here what you think!

Note: This coming Wednesday I plan to cover the release of a free CCW import utility which is suppose to aid in the converting of MicroLogix 1000 programs to a Micro800, so if you have any questions about how that works please also feel free to leave those below as well.
