32 - RS5000 Volume 2 - Advanced Lab Project Manual

Volume Two of the Complete PACLearn Series. This is not a good starting place to learn Programmable Logic Controllers. It assumes that the reader already understands basic programming and that they are upgrading to the Logix Engine and the Logix Engines HCI (Human Controller Interface) RSLogix5000. We do not repeat the same concepts in this manual that we covered in the “Complete PLCLearn Series” or in Volume One of this series.
We do not accept any responsibility for the reader’s ability to access the appropriate software and hardware to complete the projects in this manual. With RS5000, you will have to invest monetarily in the learning process to a much higher degree than for RS500. The Complete PLCLearn Series is based upon the least expensive Micrologix1000 or the RS500 Simulator comprised of the Micro Starter Lite, RSLinx Lite and RS500 Emulate which is software pro gratis from Rockwell Automation. With RS500 there is enough “free” stuff to complete the learning process.
With RS5000 there is a Version 17 available for download that is time limited and does not support download to a controller or upload from a controller. You can use this version of RSLogix5000 in the offline mode only and it will limit your use of the lab projects in the manual. With RS500 you could use the MicroLogix1000 or the simulator, whereas with RS5000 the least expensive option for hardware is purchasing used from the web for $500.00 plus and still you cannot use the free version of RS5000 with this hardware. Because of this hardware challenge, we will do most of the labs with CompactLogix and a few with ControlLogix. Keep in mind that almost anything that you can do with ControlLogix, you can also do with CompactLogix. Setting aside any differences in I/O part numbers, a 16 point digital output module serves the same basic functions in code whether it is a 1769 backplane or a 1756 backplane.
The Complete PACLearn Series is the most effective, least expensive and yet, the most complete training package available in the Programmable Automation Controller arena. To support that claim, it must provide real hands on experience, not product feature demonstrations, all lab exercises need to be step by step and fully illustrated; the lab exercises must address the less apparent nature of the products as well as the obvious. Nothing builds confidence like seeing it work with a real PAC. This manual is designed for the individual with some experience with a PLC. It is also an excellent introduction to RSLogix5000 for the experienced engineer that is familiar with the SLC500-Micrologix products and needs a quick start. The Complete PACLearn Series includes Lab Project manuals and supporting videos available for purchase.
