The best is operators trying to explain away a shattered CRT, behind a shattered plastic cover, when it isn't even touch screen.

I'm amazed at the price difference between a ControlLogix 2MB 1756-L71, and a 32MB 1756-L75. I doubt the incremental cost of 30MB memory is close to the 4x price tag.

Emulate 5000 is included with Studio 5000 Professional license (9324-RLD700NXENE), along with RSNetworx licenses.

I'm thinking 9310-WED200ENE is the right standalone license.
