P21 & SLC5 Driver

Hello,

I have had an issue with a P21 HMI.  Its original fault was it reported that the security module was not programmed.  Using the help guides on this site I updated the software to Interact 7 which does not use the security module.

The old software used the SLC5 driver for comms to the AB SLC 5/04 plc.  This driver is not an option on interact 7.  The guides suggested using the ABDH driver.  I have tried this but cannot get the HMI to 'talk' to the plc.  All the buttons and number displays on the HMI are now question marks.  Would there by any detailed guides as to how to configure this particular set up?

Thanks

Rob

  • Hello Rob.  I think I can help you with that.  There is a SLC5 driver for Interact 7, but it does not ship with the software.  This is because that driver originally required extra licensing and royalties paid to a third party.  Since you are using this driver in an existing application, I can send it to you and tell you how to install it in your Interact application.  Send me a personal message with your email address and I will send that information your way.  For legal reasons, I can't just post it to the Forum or Knowledge Base.
