I am quite new to Ignition, installed it only a few hours ago been playing with the trial. Trying to understand if its fits for the purpose of a project currently following. So far so good, pretty easy and powerful.
Ignition Version 8.0.8
I trying to set up basic testing, I want to read tags from a MicroLogix1400 PLC.
- Added the Micrologix1400 on the Ignition Gateway - status reported as "Connected: Protocol EIP
- Ignition Designer - browsed for device - I/O Tags.
- Add them to the tags list to be monitored.
- The I/O Tags report the following error: “[null, Bad, Tue Feb 18 09:55:37 AEDT 2020 (1581980137862)]”
I checked with the AB SW and other SW that I could connect and read those tags. Can reach the PLC, and it’s on RUN.
Notice that the I/O Tags are coming as short, tried to change the type to Bool.
What else could I try?
Apologises if this is a basic question, but I am starting I can’t sort it after reading the docs or searching on the forum.
