Importing from RSLogix 5000 CSV Databases

This wizard allows you to import tags from a program for ControlLogix/FlexiLogix PLC developed with RSLogix™ 5000 and exported to a CSV file. When you import tags from the RSLogix™ 5000 CSV file, the ABCIP driver worksheet is automatically created to link the tags imported with the PLC, eliminating the need to configure the communication interface between IWS and the PLC manually.

In the grid displayed in Step 3 (Importing a Database) for this Data Source Type, there is an additional field with the label Address, which displays the name of the items from the RSLogix™ program.

Note: See Steps 1, 2 and 3 of Import Wizard for the settings and fields that are common for all Source Types.
