Have made this request before.
Sure would be helpful to get Contrologix tags from the Rslogix5000 *.acd file into the SQLtags browser. FactoryTalk ME & SE can do this.
Or at least a driver for the Contrologix simulator
Don’t always have a physical PLC at the start of a project.
Yeah, this would be cool. I’ll make sure there’s at least a ticket for it somewhere.
If not from .ACD, this should be very doable from an RSLogix .L5K (XML) export.
Not from us.
@pturmel has a module that can do stuff with the XML export but not sure if it’s exactly what you’re looking for.
I am familiar with this module. I was hoping for a better solution. Thanks for the update
Is there a published schema for the L5X XML? I don’t see one in 1756-RM084.
Not something I know. I will continue messing around with the third party module
Seems like page 35 has what you’re looking for no?
Not really; I’m looking for an XML schema document, not written documentation and examples.
Check out here. After trying it further, there is a lot to offer. I am having this one problem.
I’m circling back to this, I tried it out, uploaded a .L5X and it seems to work pretty well, except I can’t seem to find any tags that were aliases of another tag. Any thoughts on that?
I have an unofficial L5X schema that works on v32 (working on v33 compatibility with PlantPAx objects). I could get it hosted on GitHub if there’s interest.
I’d at least be interested in taking a look at it.
We’re not building anything right now, but if/when we do it would certainly help if I could generate an XML parser from a schema rather than write one by hand…
Thanks. I hope you didn’t have to do that by hand
Ain’t nobody got time for that
I’ve seen a CLX program with ~1 million tags in it… I wonder how big that XML export would be and if it could even be parsed without a custom streaming parser anyway…
That would be interesting to play with–my module uses a custom streaming parser that discards the parts of an L5X that it can’t use…
