Rslinx Classic and Enterprise Software

RSLinx is a communication software package developed by Rockwell Automation, and it is commonly used in conjunction with Allen-Bradley programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and other automation devices. The primary purpose of RSLinx is to provide connectivity between different Rockwell Automation products, allowing them to communicate with each other and with other devices on an industrial network.

How to communicate with PLC-5s and SLC 5/04s on DH+?

ANC-120e: USB to Allen-Bradley DH+ Converter / PLC Programming Cable $1,295 USD List

The ANC-120e is an economical and high performance USB-to-Allen-Bradley Data Highway Plus converter interfacing major HMI, SCADA, PLC Programming packages to Devices on DH+. The PLC Programming Cable is a superior alternative to AB’s 1784-U2DHP.

The ANC-120e was efficiently engineered, allowing the RSLINX Controllogix Ethernet/IP Driver to function at 12Mb USB speeds and DH+ communications up to 230.4Kb. (ANC-100e, Ethernet/IP converter to Data Highway Plus “Pocket-sized” , Din Rail / Desktop option also available using the Controllogix Ethernet/IP Driver.)RSLINX/LOGIX PLC Programming. The ANC-120e works with all SCADA, MMI, PLC programming packages installed on your PC with USB direct access to the DH+ network and stations. These packages include RSLINX/LOGIX Classic & Enterprise with RSLOGIX 5/500, Wonderware DAServer & TCP/IO Server, Citect, and Kepware using Controllogix Ethernet/IP Drivers.

Replacement Compatibility with AB 1784-U2DHP, 1784-KTX, 1784-PKTX, 1784-PCMK, 1770-KF2.
The enhanced ANC-120e gateway converter is useful for PLC programming, accessing and monitoring DH+ network from a computer. It is a direct replacement to the 1784-U2DHP providing superior 12Mg USB speed communications and cost efficiency.

Convenient DH+ Connections.

The ANC-120e USB-to-Data Highway Plus Cable lets you connect a USB port on your computer to a DH+ network by either wiring directly to the AB blue hose or to the 8-Pin Din connector on any SLC 5/04 or PLC-5 processor.
