To create a new LogixNG, click on the Add... button. The Add
LogixNG window will be displayed.
The system name is required. The system name for a LogixNG always begins with the letters
IQ. If the entered name does not start with IQ, it will be
automatically added. The typical suffix is a number. If Automatically generate System
Name is checked, the system name format will be IQ:AUTO:nnnn. Any
other format requires adding a $ (dollar) character between
IQ and the suffix.
The user name is optional but recommended. A user name may be any useful text, provided
the new user name was not previously assigned to another LogixNG. Once a LogixNG is created,
its system name cannot be changed. Its user name may be changed in either the LogixNG Table
or the Edit LogixNG window. The user name is usually used to provide a more descriptive name,
for example, "Signal 5 Control".
After clicking Create, the LogixNG will be created and the Edit LogixNG window will appear.
