Modernizing Extinct Process Controls
This utility converts (migrates, translates) Schneider Electric programs that were created with the Telepace Studio programming software to Studio 5000, in other words Telepace to ControlLogix (CLx).
Each register (0xxxx,1xxxx, 3xxxx, 4xxxx) will be converted into a one-dimentional array of type INT.
The 0 and 1 registers access the individual bits. For example, 10017 will become M1.15.
The 3 and 4 registers use the same word offset. For example, 40100 will become M4.
Timers and counters will have new tags created of type TIMER and COUNTER. For example, timer 43493 will become T43493.
The network logic is converted using Smart Translation Technology.
Some instructions will convert without any issues. Some instructions convert but have additional logic added by the conversion utility to emulate the original instruction. Some instructions cannot be converted. They will be noted in the conversion log. Please review the conversion samples to see how the most common instructions will be converted.
|0xxxx, 1xxxx||Alias (1)||No||No|
|3xxxx, 4xxxx||Alias (1)||No||No|
|Network (2)||No||Rung comment||Rung comment|
(1) Tags are converted to aliases. Some characters cannot be used in tag names. These aliases will be renamed and noted in the conversion log.
(2) Rung comments are created in this format: “Network #”, title, comment.
Here are two options for remapping the I/O:
NONE: I/O addresses stay at their M0 and M1 address
1756: I/O addresses will be remapped to an equivalent 1756 I/O module
We convert your program, review it for accuracy, and manually cleanup the logic so that you can download it and start testing. This includes remapping the I/O if possible.
Typical conversion turn around time: 5 business days
Starting at: $8.00 (USD) per network
We guarantee that your program will be converted correctly. (no fine print)
