How to configure the 1747-PIC to connect to a SLC 500, SLC 5/01, or SLC 5/02

Setting up a PIC driver for Allen Bradley PLC’s

This is used for SLC 500, SLC 501, SLC 502, you will need a 1747-PIC cable or equivalent.  You can purchase our replacement cable HERE.  Also note that the 1747-PIC only works with a laptop that has a real serial port.  If you need an option that works with USB, look at our 1747-UIC

Open RSLinx launch control Start/Rockwell/RSLinx/RSLinx Control Panel
