ControlNet Network Scheduling
PLCs and related questions. topic
Posted by BIlly on 21 November, 2007 - 3:47 pm
This is my first time to use RSnetWorx to schedule a ControlNet Netwrok used in a four-chassis ControlLogix system. There is a ControlNet card in each chassis.

After I offline schedueled the ControlNet network using RSnetWorx, I saved the .xc file and the RSLogix 5000 project. Then, I found that some of the remote I/O cards have been in scheduled connection via ControlNet. But,some of them are NOT connected via ControlNet.

My question is: only after I go online and download the project do all I/O cards (local and remote) can be connected via ControlNet?

Thanks a lot for any help.

The easiest way to do this is actually online rather than offline, and with a ControlLogix platform, with I/O in the racks makes it easier. Be sure that you have the I/O tree correct in your RSLogix 5000 project, download this into the processor, go online with RSNetworx wait for the browse/update to complete and then save. Do a full optimise if it asks. If it does nothing tick the edit box and the save and it should bring up a dialog box asking either to merge or full optimisation of scheduled data.

If you have a MD license for RSNetworx then try running a maintenance check, you will most likely find the issue to be something simple.
