How do I import Allen-Bradley CompactLogix and ControlLogix tags using an RSLogix L5X project file in EBPro?

With the Allen-Bradley Compact/Control Logix “Free Tags” drivers in EBPro, you can import tags using an .L5X project file exported from your RSLogix software. This method is preferred over using a CSV tag file, because it eliminates the need to define the data types for User-Defined tags.

In the System Parameter Settings window, select the device and click the “Import Tags” button. Multiple tag importers are available for this protocol. Select the “Import Files (*.L5X)” option from the list and click ‘OK’. Finally, browse to your exported .L5X project file and select it then click ‘Open’.
