Studio 5000 Versioning and Firmware

5/5 (1)

Hi, first of all this site looks great!

I’m having a problem, I have a ControlLogix 1756-L61 processor that has been programmed using Studio 5000 previously.

I’m running Studio 5000 versions 24 but when I try to open the programming file a popup saying that it was created using version 21.03. The two options I have to convert the program are only 20 or 24. First thing I did was try to import to 20, but did not work, so I tried version 24 and it seemed to convert. Is there anything I will need to do to download this now?

4/5 (2)

This topic covers the basic steps to take in order to get into the Stratix 5700 – Express Setup. Hopefully this post will save some time for others in the community. In order to enter the express setup there are a few steps to take for an out-of-the-box configuration.

  1. Make sure you ethernet port is configured for automatic IP assignment.
  2. Next power up the switch and when the “Setup” light blinks, using a paper clip press and hold the Express Setup button for approximately 4 seconds.
  3. This will illuminate a port for you to connect to to get an automatic IP address on the 169.254.0.0 network. (The switch will be 169.254.0.1 configured on default VLAN1000).
  4. Once online you will be presented with the Device Manager’s express setup page where you’ll be able to configure the IP address and Subnet.
