One of our reader's asked if a PanelView800 can connect to a 5380.
I did a little research and here's what I found:
The latest manual (2018) for the PV800 states:
"CompactLogix 5370 L1 controller is supported only in PanelView 800 terminals with firmware revision 3.011 or later. CompactLogix 5370 L2 and L3 controllers are supported only in PanelView 800 terminals with firmware revision 4.012 or later. Connected Components Workbench Release 9 or later software is also required."
And the knowbase states:
"The PanelView 800, 2711R, does not support the 5069 and 5380 series controllers."
So as of today it looks like the PV800 does not support the 5380, but the good news is that it does seem to now support all 5370's (initially I believe it only supported the L1.

I've been getting a lot of vendor requests to come on my shows, so yesterday I buckled down and put 12 hours into overhauling my Media Guide so it was up to date and contained all the info that has changed over the last several months, and I released the updated version this morning here:
If you know any vendors you'd like to see come on, please share this link with them!
