Description

This talk describes how to use an EPICS “soft IOC" to control and monitor an Allen-Bradley PLC-5 through a TCP/IP link. I will explain how we converted twenty accelerator process water station PLC'S from a slow obsolete serial copper wire system to a fast network TCP/IP interface.

Summary

How to control an Allen-Bradley PLC-5 PLC with a "soft IOC".
