General Setup

This setup contains information about the hardware, software, job

aids, and setup procedures required for the lab exercises.

Required Hardware
Required Hardware

The following hardware is required:

-

-

-

Computer that meets the minimum requirements to run all

application software

ControlLogix Workstation:

-

Catalog number ABT‐TDCLX3 or equivalent hardware

PanelView Plus Workstation

-

-

Catalog number ABT‐PVPLUSTC02 or equivalent hardware

For a detailed component list, see the Workstation

Description available from Literature Library.

IMPORTANT The exercise files used with these exercises were created for the PanelView Plus 1000 terminal.
IMPORTANT
The exercise files used with these exercises were created for
the PanelView Plus 1000 terminal. If a different terminal is
used, each display in all of the exercise files will require
modification. Using a smaller terminal will result in graphic
objects being positioned outside the available viewing area;
using a larger terminal will result in the existing graphic

objects not filling the entire terminal screen

-

Switches and/or hubs and the number of Ethernet cables to

connect the workstations to a network:

-

Ideally, each controller, computer and PanelView Plus in a

workstation group should be connected to its own private

network using a 4-port switch/hub.

-

If multiple workstation groups are being networked using

larger switches/hubs, be sure that duplicate IP addresses

are avoided.

-

If the PanelView Plus terminal and controller are not part of a

network, one of the following cables (for transferring files to

the controller and terminal):

-

-

Ethernet crossover cable (recommended)

Serial cable (1756‐CP3 or equivalent)

Locate the Ethernet port on the PanelView Plus terminal. Does
Ethernet communication require an optional communications
module?
4.
Does the PanelView Plus terminal have a communications
module installed? If so, which network options are available?

Exercise A
Objectives
In this exercise you will practice how to:
Create and modify tags
Situation
Your project calls for a variety of scaled and raw data, so you should
create the appropriate tags for viewing and storing the data.
Practice
It's your turn to try it:
1.
If you already created a bottling line application, continue
working with that application; otherwise restore the
CMT_9701_A1.APA file.
Tip "
Before using this file, you must verify that the RSLinx Enterprise
communications setup has been updated.
2.
Your project requires an HMI tag that scales the data from a timer
(in milliseconds) so that the data will be displayed in seconds.
Create an analog tag and configure the following properties:
Tag name: Scaled_Timer
Minimum value: 0
Maximum value: 10,000
Scale: 0.001
Data Type: Long Integer
References the accumulated value of the ten_sec_timer tag
3.
Create a digital tag and configure the following properties:
Tag name: Machine_Status
References the FactoryTalk View data table memory
Initial value: 0
Non‐retentive value
4.
Create a string tag and configure the following properties:
Tag Name: Operator_Message
String Length: 48
References the FactoryTalk View data table memory
Initial Value: Machine Off
Retentive value
5.
Create an HMI folder named Conveyor.

Exercise B
Objectives
In this exercise you will practice how to:
Create and configure buttons
Situation
Now that you have created and configured Shutdown and Goto
Display buttons, you have been asked to add additional buttons to
your application.
Practice
It's your turn to try it:
1.
If you already created a bottling line application, continue
working with that application; otherwise restore the
CCO_9701_B1.APA file.
Tip "
Before using this application, you must verify the RSLinx Enterprise
Communication Setup has been updated to use your ControlLogix
controller.
2.
Open the Conveyor graphic display.
3.
Inside the dark gray panel at the upper left of the graphic display,
create a numeric input enable button that exhibits the following
properties:
Tip "
Be sure to leave enough room to create two smaller pushbuttons
below the numeric input enable button.
Default graphic object Appearance
Caption (first line): Number of Bottles
Caption Variable (second line): “to Fill:”. Then insert a
two‐digit numeric variable referencing the Bottle_Preset tag
(located in the Program:Filling of your Logix5000 program
file)
Default Caption Settings
Numeric Pop‐Up: Keypad
Keypad Minimum/Maximum Values: 0 to 10
Size: 55 pixels high by 120 pixels wide
Value Connection: Assign the same tag used to display the
button's caption variable (the Bottle_Preset tag).

Indicator connection: Assign this connection to the
Machine_1\Machine_Status HMI tag.
12.
Align the tops of the pushbutton and the multistate indicator.
13.
Under the left pushbutton, create a numeric display and
configure it to exhibit the following properties:

Value Connection: Assign this connection to the accumulated
value of the ten_second_timer tag.
Tip "
The ten_second_timer has been programmed to accumulate 10
seconds of value. A ControlLogix or SoftLogix controller records
timer values in milliseconds, so 10 seconds is equal to 10,000ms.
