New to AC500
I am a newbe to AC500 and using Automation Builder 1.2
I have set up a system with PM583 (192.168.0.10) and my own PC (192.168.0.20).
I can ping 192.168.0.10 from my PC.
When i scan the network it finds the PLC, 192.168.0.10 PM583-ETH.
I made a new project, TESTproject.
TESTproject/Interfaces/Protocols/<I have added a protcol "ModBus_TCP_IP_Server">
with standard settings. (i am not sure why i did this i just noticed it on an example project).
First i simulate/login/run and it works fine so now i want to dowload it to the PLC:
* I guess i download to PM583 (not in run mode) using "Online/Download". The problem is that it is grayed out and cannot be choosed.
* Simulateion Mode is NOT choosed.
* Tcp/Ip Adress 192.168.0.10 Port 1200 (default im not sure this is right)
Can antone tell me why i cant download or can anyone point me to the right manual that contains "AC500 for dummies"
