Pulseroller has authored and made available Add On Instructions (AOI) in order to make your programming easier to follow. In this document up until this section, when connecting to a ConveyLinx-Ai Family Modules regardless of mode; your PLC program needs to directly access the register data array tags created when you created the ConveyLinx-Ai Family Modules instance. The AOIs attach to the created ConveyLinx-Ai Family Modules’s register data arrays and maps the data into user tags and functions with meaningful names. There are two separate AOIs for use depending on the mode of the ConveyLinx-Ai Family Modules you want to connect: a ZPA mode AOI and a PLC I/O mode AOI

Selecting the Proper AOI Instruction

AOI files are imported to your specific PLC program file and not into the RSLogix 5000 environment like an EDS file. The following chart provides a cross-reference for selecting the proper AOI file based upon the mode of operation

ConveyLinx-Ai Family Modules Mode EDS File AOI File
ZPA Mode ConveyLinxAi_V5_1.eds Ai2_ZPA_AOI_4_5.L5X
PLC I/O Mode ConveyLinxAi_V5_1.eds Ai2_PLCIO_AOI_4_5.L5X
