      Has anybody ever found any tools :
      That can automagically translate code from one PLC vendor code to another PLC?
      So for example if I can get the simple Ladder file out of one PLC , I would like to translate it via an application into my new vendor PLC.. ?

        Hey Ken,

        Now that would truly be magical! If you find something that will do that please share. I know Rockwell provides conversion tools for their PLC5, SLC500 to go to Logix but automagically converting a Siemens program to a Logix program…I’m not aware. Hmmm…I wonder how big a market there would be for a piece of software like that? I’m guessing there is one and it would be large! On the other hand, we can’t automate our own jobs 🙂

          Isn’t part of programming the SLOTH principle.
          How can I make my job easier and faster so I have time to experiment and to ‘play’ er learn …
