What are the machines running now ?

1756-L71 and -L72 controllers are available in stock from most A-B dealers. Why would you buy an intermediate controller (which you would have to program with v20 or lower software) ?

I am skeptical of any company that claims to "refurbish" a PLC controller. No other companies have access to the RA-specific chips that would be required for some things (like the backplane ASIC issue ten years ago). Most aftermarket sellers load the current firmware and do a short burn-in test (if that).
