In this video, we will take a quick tour of RSLogix 500.
The tool ribbon is displayed in two parts.
The left half shows the online status of the program and the status of program forces. The picture of the ladder with the connected boxes will animate and rotate when RSLogix is connected and the PLC is online.
On the right-hand side, we see an instruction selection portal, with multiple tabs and individual program instruction icons, all of which are currently grayed out.
If we hover over the second icon in the instruction selection portal, we see that it is a rung branch icon used to insert a branch in the ladder program.
If we hover over the large yellow “plus sign” in the command toolbar, we see that this icon is used to “add or remove add-in instructions”.
