Is that a 5/05? I've got a 5/03 sitting on my desk, but haven't rounded up a rack or I/O. I've also go a scadapack with built in I/O, but no good way to bring temp into a 4-20.

It's a 5/04 so no ethernet (I believe that's what the 05 gave you...I may be wrong)

Max, if you're talking about the CLogix Redundancy issues then the latest I've seen have actually been card issues. The most recent is with the ControlNet cards. If they are at firmware 11.002 (I think that's right, kinda guessing here) then they have an anomaly where they lose communications after 72 days without a power cycle. To correct it you have to upgrade to v 11.003. Very annoying.

Max, we (I) use them for VERY different situations...anything from bulk material handling to power generation, natural gas compression systems and a lot in between. You?

I would not sell any cards, soon or later you will fill up each I/O point

Yea our last issues actually turned out to be the power supply. For some reason it would drop power for a spit second, enough to fault it.
I work in the pharmacuetical industry and we have experienced the exact same issues with some of our allen Bradleys...hmmmmm

I just looked and the cards we have on the shelf are V 11.003. Maybe the ones installed from the contractors had older 11.002, we dont have the cards anymore. I know that we did swap out the cards with an 11.003 and we still had the issues until we just so happened to catch the issue in the act. We swapped out the supply and it has been good to go so far.

Oh, and we mainly use the AB's on our baggage handling systems.

Nice score! heh, well the batteries are cheap on ebay any ways. What they charge for the flash modules is like being prison raped.... Use a SLCs quite a bit in the fresh/waste water industry. I've heard of guys ripping and stripping old panels and giving them away, never been lucky enough to be around when it happens.

The programming is part of what I do at work so that's not a problem. There's more than enough IO so I'm thinking I might sell some of the extra cards for some cash to start upgrading the brewery.
Do you have a thermalcouple card on there you don't need? If so let me know I need one.
