PLC Conversions

Modernizing Extinct Process Controls

Telepace Studio to Studio 5000


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[1].15.
The 3 and 4 registers use the same word offset. For example, 40100 will become M4[100].
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.


Address Tag Comment Title
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

Conversion samples

Telepace_Program Telepace_CLx (a picture’s worth a thousand words)




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: $2.50 (USD) per rung (to convert networks to rungs count the total number of output instructions)

What do I need to do

Upload the program from the PLC!
Save the program (<project name>.*) as a zip or 7-zip file. Do not include the path. (One PLC program per zip file.)
Your program will include file extensions such as: TPJ

Satisfaction Guaranteed

We guarantee that your program will be converted correctly. (no fine print)
