Allen Bradley 1745-PCC necessary for communication/programming the SLC 100 150 and software PCIS

Posted by PLC Cable on Mar 08, 2021

We have wrote a procedure on how to use this cable with Windows XP, this procedure is FREE and is on our product support page of our website, this is done by using a program called DosBox and works very well also free software and there are links on how to get the software PCIS that is needed to communicate with your PLC again for free from Allen Bradley.... if you have this PLC we recommend upgrading it to something newer or at minimum getting the program out and backed up... and other then buying this cable it can be done for free

Note: We have done this using Windows XP, Works GREAT with Windows 7 or 10, our USB cable can be found at this link

See here for the youtube video on setup
Try this PCIS software, you do not need to install it just place it on your hard drive C:/pcis (unzip it first) you can use it on the Win98 Win2k or WinXP, I have never had issues with it, AB does give it away... wanting everyone to upgrade to a newer PLC
This is the procedure we wrote for WinXP, but it will work on any Windows OS

You can download DosBox here

You will need to configure DosBox for the comport you are using, Also read this its from a forum that has a ton of information, this is about the PCC cable, post 30 is about the Com setting of DosBox

This is the user manual
