Personally, I'll take RSLogix 500 any day of the week over the 800 series.

I've had good applications for the micro800 line, and the CCW software has come a LONG way from the early days. (I started with version 1 ). I'm excited to see what V11 offers.

There are some really annoying things - like how the timers work, lack of bit access in a DINT, INT, etc. I end up writing some function blocks to make it work more like RSLogix, but it is still a chore.

That all being said - my Rockwell rep did the *wink wink* and implied they will be phasing out the 500 line. It costs way more hardware-wise, and they have full *convert from 500 to 800* catalogs and software.

I never heard the 800 is replacing the SLCs and don't think they will or are.... the 800's are replacing the MicroLogix 1000-1500

The SLC is being phased out but is being replaced by the Compactlogix, next time your rep winks at you... ask them if they have something in there eye

We got an official notice, that Micrologix 1100 and 1400 would be available for at least next 7 years. That was roughly 6 months ago.

Perfect, I hope to be retired by then

Yes, I guess I 'misspoke' by saying '500' series - I meant devices using RSLogix 500 like Micro 1000 series.

No worries... and welcome to the forum
