Video: How do I add a remote drop to an M580 configuration?

Published date: 26 April 2019

Issue
Procedure to adding a remote drop to an M580 configuration in Unity Pro.

Product Line
Modicon M580 ePAC (Ethernet Programmable Automation Controller)

Environment
Unity Pro

Resolution
To add a remote drop to an M580 configuration, you need to open the EIO bus. Once the EIO bus is open you can double-click the small box. That will launch a window where you can select the appropriate rack and CRA. 

Note: There is a similar small box directly under the local rack in PLC bus window. Double-clicking this box does NOT add a remote drop but rather an extended rack.
