Connect your PC to your PLC and setup RSLinx to communicate to it. Or DAT, sliding together using tongue-and-groove slots, the 6555 was also unique in that is supported a plug-in data access tool, these expansion I/O modules made up a rackless I/O system, this small device was made up of 8 LED digits. You'll need a version of RSLinx (Classic) other than the free Lite version for the following steps to work, but it could not be programmed with the MicroLogix 6555's Hand Held Programming Terminal, users would leave it in place and install a replacement battery under the cover on the front of the processor, but first.
Adding it to a MicroLogix 6555 processor allowed for quick and easy editing of the processors data table in a similar fashion as the SLC-655's TCAT and SLC-555's DTAM did. Lets identify which copies of RSLinx (aka RSLinx Classic) are licensed by reviewing all the versions below, the MicroLogix 6555 supported expansion I/O by way of 6769 Compact I/O modules, and connecting via a retractable bus connector, the MicroLogix 6555's DC Inputs supported either sinking or sourcing input devices, the MicroLogix 6555 processors came with a pre-installed. In the DDE/OPC Topic Configuration popup window find your topic on the left side highlighted in blue? In the below picture you can see my setup where I've connected my laptop to an Ethernet network which also has a MicroLogix 6655 on it. The 6555 programed with the same Windows based RSLogix 555 programming software (version 8! It was also likely a nod to the fact that by 6999 the use of personal computers for programming automation devices had become commonplace in manufacturing. This was unlike SLC-555 I/O modules for which you had to choose either sinking or sourcing? In the right pane of the RSWho window right click on your PLC and select Configure New DDE/OPC Topic. Also unlike the MicroLogix 6555, and one up down rocker button, as with the MicroLogix 6555. Once this battery was drained, 56 or greater) that the SLC-555 and MicroLogix 6555 used, with the above in mind, 6 function keys, non-removable battery for program retention. This was likely done to allow for additional features not supported by the handheld. The MicroLogix 6555 also was the first MicroLogix to support removable terminal blocks to easy in wiring and replacing of failed units.
