5! ou want to connect our PanelView Plus to the 6pin mini 15. port 3channel 04 !ound on an o! the
MicroLogix" then ou can use the cable $%11&.($1" which is a 6pin mini 15. to 7 pin 1&Shell straight&
through cable. This technote uses a MicroLogix 1500 LRP because the two (,MM ports o! the MicroLogix
means the user can go online to the MicroLogix while it is still connected to the PanelView Plus. Please see

Setting up your MicroLogix:
,pen RSLinx
8o to the :(ommunications &= (on!igure 1ri-ers>< screen.
Stop and delete all o! our 1?1 dri-ers.
?rom the a-ailable dri-ers select RS$/$ 1?1 de-ices" :@dd .ew><
Press the @uto&(on!igure button then ,A.
Bou now should ha-e a linC to our MicroLogix.
RSLogix 500:
,pen RSLogix 500.
,pen the .RSS proDect ou wish to use !or our MicroLogix. ,r ou can use this one.
31ouble clicC4
8o to the (omms &= Eho @cti-e 8o ,nline dialog" and select the MicroLogix ou wish to download to.
1ownload our program and go online.
Lea-ing the MicroLogix in remote run mode" close RSLogix 500.
5n RSLinx" 8o to :(ommunications &= (on!igure 1ri-ers>< and Stop the 1?1 dri-er. This allows
RSView Studio to communicate with the MicroLogix -ia its own" built in RSLinx +nterprise.
Setting up your PanelView Plus:
The PanelView Plus needs an 5P address in the same subnet as the P(.
To obtain our P(Fs 5P address" go to :Start &= Run< tpe :cmd< and press oC. 5n the command prompt"
tpe :ipcon!ig< and hit enter. MaCe a note o! our 5P address and subnet masC.

Reset our PanelView Plus to appl the changes to our 5P address.
RSView Studio:

5! ou open the new dri-er" ou should see our MicroLogix 1e-ice. Bou should also be able to see the
PanelView Plus under the +thernet dri-er. 5! not" !or either de-ice" checC RSLinx has still stopped the
dri-er" checC the cabling then checC the de-ices ha-e power. RechecC our 5P settings.
The Local tab is now con!igured" which has the settings !or connecting the P( to the other de-ices.
.ow ou need to con!igure the Target tab" which has settings !or connecting the PanelView Plus to its
de-ices. Right clicC on the computer icon o! the Target Tab" and select :@dd 1ri-er<. Ise the Serial

.ow we ha-e to create shortcuts" so our program Cnows how to access its -ariables. Still in the
(ommunication setup" clicC the @dd button. This adds a shortcut !or our application which we can linC
to di!!erent de-ices. 8eneral practice is to gi-e it the same name as ou named our processor in
RSLogix 500. Eith the new shortcut selected" also select the MicroLogix in the Target tab. Git the
