Looking to use Ignition at an existing facility where they have a custom/proprietary HMI project communicating to a PLC-5/40E series D over DH+. Looking at the ethernet port on this processor, which is a 15-pin D-shell connector and only 10MB. AB made a 15 pin to RJ45 adapter but it is now obsolete. I’ve confirmed with AB that the Black Box LE180A is a suitable adapter to use with this processor. Wondering if anyone has experience using Ignition to communicate with a PLC-5 with the 10MB (15-pin) ethernet port?
This customer would like to upgrade HMI/SCADA first (to save cost) and then upgrade the PLC-5 to CLX later down the road.
