  • productivity suite suggestion

    It would be nice for documentation purposes that when in the ladder view that when you right click on an instruction that it would allow you to edit the tag comments. it makes things more difficult that the only place i found to edit the tag comments is from within the tag database.

      You guys are awesome. Keep up the good work.

      The productivity series has become my favorite platform to develop in. I can easily do things in it that i cant in other brands that cost 5 times more and the platform keeps getting better.

          The biggest thing negatively separating it from your main competitor for the P3000 in this plant is only one user configurable Ethernet port. I have a few workarounds I have thought about like using a modbus serial to modbus TCP adapter or getting a layer 3 switch with network address translation and inter VLAN routing. neither are ideal and it would be much simpler if i could just add a card to the rack like the serial card

          Another thing I just thought of would be to integrate the scale linear instruction in to the analog card hardware config screen and add 4-20ma in the ranger drop down selector. i am thinking add 2 columns to the right of range labeled scale min and scale max and having it default to 0-65535 for backwards compatibility.
