Password change at Linux-based PLCs (IPLC500, IPLC510, MXPLC-L, mark…)

Since February 2018, the administrator password for Linux-based PLCs has changed. The old password was “sharkXXXX”, where XXXX were the last four digits of the PLC serial number. Now the password is the number stated at the PLC label as “code:”. The process stations affected are easy to recognize according to the “code:” item at the device label (see image). The user is root, as before.
