Happy Monday morning!

This week starts off with a just recorded interview with Rockwell on CCW13 - can wait to publish it - hoping for next week ;-)

Then later this week I'll be sitting down with the ISA to learn what's new and exciting with them, and following that I talk to a vendor to get a deep dive on EtherCat (a DeviceNet replacement.)

I'm also still reaching out to vendors on a regular basis, and have some preliminary calls later this week to see about having more on the show.

If you have a favorite vendor you'd like me to have on, please let me know with a comment below (include their contact info in known,) or you can ask them to contact me directly at

With that, let me wish you all a great day and I hope to be back mid week with more insider updates ;-)

But when i runtime on my PC, the trend shows the past data, tho when i download to HMI, the trend disappear.
Any ideas ? Does anyone face this problem?

Panel view plus 600 went bad. Installed a pane view plus 6 600 in its place. Everything works fine but the none AB motor that was setup with KEPserver enterprise. Never worked with the kepware drivers so AB can communicate with the device (motor). How can I get the upgraded panel to communicate with the motor
