Do I need to manually enter all descriptive I/O tags into RSLogix5000 for Eaton Motor Control products?

No. Eaton provides two software tools that automatically generate all descriptive I/O tags for Eaton motor control products. One tool is EIP-Assist which generates a CSV spread sheet file that can be imported into RSLogix5000 where these tags are aliased to the generic tags the software creates for the Eaton products. The other tool is Add-On Instructions. The AOIs for each product create the descriptive I/O tags in RSLogix5000 and also handle all scaled values, providing them in engineering units. Both tools are on the Eaton website under Each specific motor control product.
