Introduction

This utility converts (migrates, translates) Allen-Bradley (AB) PLC2 (1772) programs that were created with the 6200-PLC2 programming software to RSLogix 5, in other words PLC2 to PLC5.

Data

The data table is converted to a single data file (N10) as type INT. All data will change from BCD to decimal in the conversion process. Addresses will change from octal to decimal. For example, an address of 370/17 will become N10:248/15. New addresses will be created for timers, counters, and control.

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:

Instruction Comment will be used if no Address Comment is found.

I/O

Here is one option for remapping the I/O:

NONE: I/O addresses stay at their I/O address.
