Well turns out that my machine only has DeviceNet lean. The ABB rep we had at work said we couldn't get third party units to work with it. The wrong tree has been well barked. So, it's physical I/Os for me! Thanks!
Hey folks, new to PLCs and new to this forum. ---- Ok, so this is my issue: Boss wants me to hook up a 350 to an IRC5 ABB controller, preferably through an ethernet cable. No fieldbus adapter on the controller. No devicenet on the PLC. ---- I'm looking at modbus, but I do not really know where to start. ---- What's the recommended protocol for this situation? What kind of programming is involved? ---- ANY help at all would be awesome. Thanks in advance!!
