Allen Bradley Tag Export
Export file does not have ranges for analog points.

I exported tags into csv using Controllogix 5000, but I do not see ranges/0&span (Engineering Units) for analog points. What am I missing? Any related input is greatly appreciated.

Controllogix tags don't generally have range or engineering unit information built into them unless it is a UDT or an AOI
type tag that has been made to have those features. Standard tags just
don't have them.

I found out that ranges are stored on the IO modules, which is not a part of tag export.

What about analog tags that come across Modbus TCP datalink? Where are their ranges defined and how can they be exported?

You have to look at the module configuration to see how it is set up.
