RSView32 demonstrator with SLC5/05


Thread Starter

B.M. Huk

We are trying to use RSView32 demonstrator with SLC5/05 connected to a ethernet network. Using the direct driver & Who Active shows which PLC's are available, when you select one, RSview comes back with the message "Invalid Selection. Cause: Device Type not supported"
Any clues?

Precisely correct. It's a bug, where RSView can't use RSWHO to select a SLC-5/05 on Ethernet. Prior to version 6.10.15, it couldn't select PLC-5E or Softlogix 5's on Ethernet, either. Fixed in version 6.20.

It's technote E783 on the RSI support site.
