It only works if you work through the modified version of RS-Linx which means removing the regular version off every laptop. Actually RS-Linx IS the security system. Just one serial cable and a direct link to the processor and your security is almost totally bypassed.Rockwell makes a program that keeps track of changes, designed for just the situation you describe.
I believe this works best in a server enviroment
f you are using RSLogix 5000 you can do an upload and get the most current. RSLogix 500 you have to keep the off line version to get all the edit comments.
So tell me the difference between a software and a hardware jumper? If I jumper out an interlock, does it matter what the mechanism is?Things that are actual safety issues should never be handled in software that can be readily changed.
Issues of damage to the machine are not safety problems, although they are often treated like they are.
