Introduction

This utility converts (migrates, translates) GE Series 90 programs that were created with the GE Proficy Machine Edition (ME) programming software to Studio 5000, in other words GE Proficy ME to ControlLogix (CLx).

Data

Each register will be converted into a one-dimentional array of identical data type (O,I,R as INT).
Timers and counters will have new tags created of type TIMER and COUNTER. For example, timer R00901 will become T0901.

Logic

The ladder logic is converted using Smart Translation Technology.

Most instructions will convert without any issues. Some instructions convert but have additional logic added by the conversion utility to emulate the original instruction. A few instructions cannot be converted. They will be noted in the conversion log.

Documentation

All documentation converts with the following exceptions:

Nicknames are converted to aliases. Some characters cannot be used in tag names. These aliases will be renamed and noted in the conversion log.

I/O

There are three options for remapping the I/O:

NONE: I/O addresses stay at their O, I, and R address
AN-X: I/O addresses will be remapped to an AN-X-GENI module (See ProSoft under Resources).
1756: I/O addresses will be remapped to 1756 I/O. You must provide the CLx I/O configuration and remap cross reference.
