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 have a question that a more seasoned programmer probably doesn't have any trouble with but, I am having issues uploading a program from a 1769-L33ER PLC that is using Studio5000 Logix Designer V23. I can see the PLC on WhoActive and the RS Linx Classic and even am able to see the Driver Diagnostics for the PLC, however, the program never uploads. I am at a loss and am hoping you can help me. Thank you in advance for your assistance. I have attached a screen shot from RSLinx Classic; let me know if you would like anything else.
Good morning everyone!
Hope your week is off to a great start :-) I wanted to kick the week off by asking everyone who their favorite automation vendors are?
I ask because I want to be sure I reach out to all of them about having them on my show.
For reference, this a list of vendors who've come on this year:
See anyone you use that's missing?
Would you like to see any of these folks come back on?
Thanks in advance!
