PLC3 to Controllogix Conversion - timers


Thread Starter

Jigar Shah

I have an PLC3 ladder which has timers with base as SCAN. This option is not available in Controllogix. I m looking for methods to impliment the same in CLX.... Any insight in this would be appreciated..

use a counter as a scan then add the scan times together. The PLC 3 scan time base was used in various ways, I would try to understand the reason why scan was used and re-think the app if necessary.
