Introduction

This utility converts (migrates, translates) Allen-Bradley (AB) SLC100/150 (1745) programs that were created with the AI100 (SLC Logistics) programming software to RSLogix 5000, in other words SLC100 to CompactLogix. This conversion is a direct translation into CompactLogix (1769).

Data

The data table is converted to a single dimentional array (tag name M) as type BOOL. New tags will be created for timers, counters, and control. For example, timer address 904 will become T904 as type TIMER.

Logic

The ladder logic is converted using Smart Translation Technology.

Most instructions will convert without any issues. Some instructions convert but have additional logic added by the conversion utility to emulate the original instruction. A few instructions cannot be converted. They will be noted in the conversion log.

Documentation

I/O

There are two options for remapping the I/O:

NONE: I/O addresses stay at their M array address
1769: I/O addresses will be remapped to a 1769-IA16 or 1769-OA16 module.
