Configuration and use of the Allen Bradley 2080-SD-2GB Micro SD card

Posted by PLC Cable Inc on Nov 02, 2022

The card has several uses, ours is for loading the program and firmware on the 2080-LC20-20QWB and the 2080-LC20-20QBB for our trainers, we sell a lot of them and its easier to have an SD card with the program and the firmware ready to go, once its built we put it in and power up... First the PLC will flash to the firmware that we have loaded on the SD, this save a ton of time as it take long to load it from a PC, next it will load our same program to test the I/O on the trainers, we need to verify that the PLC is wired correctly and that all the I/O works as it should.

If you need to purchase one see this link

Below are some links that should help accomplish what is needed on your end.
