Hi Guys, I'm with a trouble here.


Recently we started to get our outdated temperature test cabinet to work, and the best way is to upgrade our PLC. But there cames 2 problems, the biggest is the budget, we do not have any money so we have to work with what we already have, and the second, i'm intern here and there is no one from automation to guide or help me.


Now lets face the problem.


PLC Allen Bradley micrologix 1100

cards: 1762-IQ16 and 1762-IQ8W6


My first thought is to use Labview to control the PLC, as HMI and data-logger without OPC server to simplify the instalation and cost.


The communication: this is really where the problems begin. It will be done through Ethernet. I could not manage Ethernet/IP driver to work, nor pcc or CIP message...


which is the best way to communicate?

CIP Message, OPC, or any other i do not know? Do you guys see any problems to make a dataloger without OPC?


Some things I have tryed


Implementation of Common industrial Protocol (CIP) via EtherNet [EtherNet/IP (CIP)]



Ethernet/IP Driver for Micrologix 1100



EtherNet/IP Driver for Industrial Communication




Thanks for any help
