Testing Allen Bradley Point IO Unit
Testing Allen Bradley Point IO unit without a PLC

I want to test a small cabinet that includes a POINT IO unit type 1734-AENT. How can I test this unit if I don't have a PLC?

Do you have soft plc? I dont recall if the plc emulator lets you connect to real io.

Otherwise a small controllogix is the answer.
