Uploading Program from Quantum PLC

Thanks

Yes, you can include the "Proworx" logic in a Concept project as a non IEC section, 984LL. You should also consider moving to Unity. Unity will import the entire Proworx project and integrate it fully into a powerful and full featured IEC software package. Check with a Schneider sales office or a distributor.

will there be no conflict on the configuration such as tag addresses, Derived Function block (user-defined function block) and etc?

thank you for the additional option (Unity)

With the new feature introduced with Unity V5.1, it is possible to open an existing Modsoft, Proworx NxT or ProWorx32 project directly into Unity as another "language" (non IEC).

The conversion works best with projects configured for Quantums but will convert old Modicon 785 style projects. Currently, the result is a Unity Quantum project. There will be a Compact to M340 project conversion later this year.

References (addressed I/O) without a tag (symbol or variable name) will have a tag name constructed out of their address (eg 10001 will become _10001).

Solution of the logic in the new 984LL editor remains as you would expect, solution is column by column and bit type instructions remain, for this editor, in the "old" Modsoft format.

The GUI for this editor has the look and feel of Proworx NxT.

Even nicer, no need to upgrade the controller. The 6th language in Unity (FBD, ST, IL, LD, SFC plus 984LL) is simply compiled and downloaded with the IEC languages. You can mix editors as required (984LL plus FBD plus ST etc). Full online edits remain.

The conversion is amazingly accurate and eliminates the necessity to re-write logic. Save time and money and simply use your old logic.
