  1. Q03UDVCPU

    I am new with PLC's and I am learning how to work with GX Works 2. I have two questions, 1st Question: Using a Q series PLC (Q03UDVCPU) Is it possible to convert the language of a project from ladder logic to structured text? 2nd Question: If I read a project from a PLC why is it always ladder logic? Is there any way to read out structured text?
  2. Hi I'm looking for Ladder Logic code that I could use for a plastic injection molding machine.  I am willing to purchase and/or modify existing code to meet our specifications.  We have lost the Ladder Logic out of the TI/Siemens Controller on our Newbury 100 Plastic Machine so we're looking at replacing both the PLC and the HMI interface with an Automation Direct Controller.  We have the HMI Basic Code for the Newbury but not the ladder.  I've pasted the manual below for our machine.  Any assistance would be much appreicated.  The manual was too large for me to post but I've posted a document with information about how we intend to upgrade which has a little information about the machine also.

  3. Hello! I have a project where I need to use Allen Bradley PLC, it might be one of CompactLogic series. In scope of the project I need to transfer few real values to DirectLogic PLC that installed on customer side. DirectLogic PLC has installed ethernet card that support Modbus TCP, TCP/IP and UDP/IP protocols as it says on automationdirect website. I start looking for Allen Bradley PLC that support Modbus TCP or TCP/UDP protocol and did find clear information. Could you help me to find out a way how I can pass the data to directlogic PLC from CompactLogic?   Thank you in advance!   Regards, Scotty
  4. Hi..  someone please help me.. i'm working in omron CS1H-H CPU67 PLC. My struggle is I/O in one particular rung is not getting updated.  Note: the rung is consist of a P_On flag followed by a FB ; all I/O to the FB were correctly assigned. but the inputs inside the FB instance are not getting updated so that the output not updated. can anyone please help me....????   sorry for my poor english... thanks in advance.
  5. I need to run 4 exactly same devices with 4 different controllers. The logic for them would be exactly the same but the IPs and controller names would be different. Is there a way to do it using 1 project file? Basically whenever download is done the logic would be downloaded but the controller name/IP would be left unchanged. They will be connected to the same network so the IPs must be different. I am using 1769-L32E for these and all racks are set up exactly the same. Any ideas?
  6. Hi Everyone, I'm working on my first PLC program and I have gotten my hands on some ladder logic I'm trying to duplicate. I'm using SoMachine 4.1 and have started a new Ladder Logic diagram POU. I'm curious on how do I create internal contacts. EXAMPLE: 24v--------l START BUTTON l----------------( COIL A)----- --------------l COIL A CONTACT 1; attached to a real output, solenoid valvel-------------l COIL A INTERNAL CONTACT TO CLOSE l---------------- Are there standards for numbering and labeling? I'm seeing L and U inside coil contacts. Does this have an underlying meaning according to standard? Is there a RTO function inside SoMachine 4.1    
  7. Hi everyone, I'm a newbie in the ladder logic programming languages. For my thesis project I've to develop a scenario but I'm stuck with the creation of a socket connection from the Modicon M340 PLC to a server for transfer continuous data given from sensors or similar. Does anyone have a sample program that could have such a functionality so that I can change it based on my needs? Thanks in advice for any further reply!
  8. Hello, I am currently working on programming my first sortation system.  Attached is a blue print of the in feed conveyors and their loadout lines.  As boxes merge together they will be scanned by the barcode scanner.  From there we will be told which lane each box must go down, from the WCS.   My question is, without encoders, what would be the best way to control this system? Counting the packages as they pass through the photoeye? Or setting timers?   Thanks, James Sorting Conveyor Layout.pdf

  12. Monitor alarm block

    Hi all, I would like to monitor the status of my alarm word (MW100) and if any bit turns from 0 to 1 then an alarm signal should be generated, am new to siemens plc and am having a tough time accomplishing this easily. In omrom CX programmer its quite easy to do. Could anyone help me on this using ladder logic, all help will be deeply appreciated.  Regards, Ablex  PS: I'm using Step 7 V5.5
  13. Hi guys, I'm in the middle of a little university project, I'm attempting to implement a control system purely based on artificial intelligence. A neural network will be used to map the characteristics of a power plant. A fuzzy logic controller will be used instead of the conventional PID and finally a genetic algorithm will be used to tune the controller while the system is online. This is all simulated of course. Each of those AI's will be developed in Matlab. Only problem with that is, is it outputs the code in C or C++ (From memory). I would have to convert this to structured text (Based on Pascal). So to circumvent this problem I thought I would just directly interface matlab to the PLC (Schneiders M340).  My idea being, all the calculations are done in matlab which are then sent back to the PLC. However this presents me with a new problem of how I would be able to interface matlab to the PLC. If anyone has experience with this sort of connectivity, any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance, Luchek
  14. Hi, I am using syswin and i am doing an exercise on saving and moving data. My challenge is am monitoring temperature from a sensor and the range is -20'C to 100'C from the 4-20mA sensor, after conversion and testing for positive and negative the values are stored in D205. (I have done the conversion and testing for positive and negative values only assigning of bit 15 in D205 is left) The simple program has to turn on Bit 15 if the value is supposed to be negative. 1000 0000 0000 0001, a simple approach to telling us this is -1’C.  0000 0000 0000 0001, is telling us this is 1’C. Bit 15 is going to be our Sign Flag, so we have to ensure that if the temperature is positive then  Bit 15 = 0, how can we do this make Bit 15 of D205 = 0? If the temperature is negative then  Bit 15 = 1, how can we do this make Bit 15 of D205 = 1? How can i turn on this bit inside a data word? for negative i thought i could just add #8000 to the values after conversion then storing in D205 but for positive values how do i ensure that bit 15 is 0? How could you approach this? Am a bit stuck, all thoughts and ideas are much appreciated if possible you could add a snapshot from syswin or cx-programmer. I have attached the WTANK.SWP file which can be opened in syswin or cx-programmer. Look in block Main 8 Temp Buffer, Network 3 Convert to 'C WTANK.SWP
  15. Enable bit in function block

    There are a lot of instructions in function block that are missing the enable input that is present when programming in ladder logic, such as  ADD or MOV.  It seems to be very limiting. The only way around it that I know of is to write your own function block in ladder logic or statement list and use that. I seems rather limiting of a language if it relies on other languages for it to be usable. Does anyone know why the enable bit was left out in many function blocks when it is so useful in ladder logic? Pat

  17. Mitsubishi PLC

    Dear all,    I need to develop a PLC program for cycle operation. The logic is as follows : When I/p 1 is ON o/p1 should ON, with a time delay o/p2 should ON ,like wise four outputs should ON , if stop button is pressed the output should stop at the current position ,them again if start is pressed it should resume with that output . Can anyone help me with this logic ?? I am using Q03UDE Cpu..Thankyou.

  19. Function Block or any other method

    Hello, I am a student that has been taught ladder logic for three years( on many different plc's ) but, I would like to learn an alternative method is there any way to convert ladder into Function Block or some other type of programming in RS logic 5000 or any other controller? If not can some one explain the basics of Function Block programming.
  20. Need to build this

    3 It has been decided to introduce a Programmable Controller into a manufacturing plant to control a three phase induction motor via an autotransformer in order to reduce high starting currents. It is required to include an alarm circuit which is to give an audible and visual alarm when the motor is overloaded. A momentary actuated Reset push button is to be included in the alarm circuit which will turn off the audible alarm but leave the overload lamp on until the motor overload is reset. Once the motor overload is reset the overload lamp is to be de-activated. The conventional relay circuit diagram for this starter is shown below. A single Stop/Start push button control station is required to initiate the following motor control sequence. a. Motor 1 turns on the instant the start push button is operated; b. Motor 2 turns on 10 seconds after Motor 1 starts; c. Motor 3 turns on 15 seconds after Motor 2 starts; d. Motor 3 turns off after running for six seconds; e. Motor 2 turns off 6 seconds after Motor 3 stops; f. Motor 1 turns off 3 seconds after Motor 2 stops. If the Stop push button is operated, or a thermal overload from any motor is tripped, the whole system will shut down. Motor 1 will start the control sequence again next time the Start push button is pressed.
  21. Hello Everyone, I am new to ladder logic, and trying to understand flow of below attached ladder logic- How does the program flow ? Does PT4601_I in rung 3 waits for rung 2 to complete inorder to consider updated value of PT4601_I or it consider PT4601_I default value and runs simultaneously with rung 2 ? Thank you in advacne
  22. Hello, anyone know how to make a logic that monitors the change in position of a carriage through some rails ?. In my application I measure the position of the carriage by means of a laser sensor and I have to detect if the laser beam is interrupted when the carriage is stationary or moving. I have implemented a logic as the adjunct file, but doesn't work.
  23. Hello!! I am a beginner in PLC and Automation. I have built a ladder logic program in RSLogix 5000, the controller I selected is 1756 L62 ControlLogix 5562. I want to test my logic. I have installed RSLinx Classic Lite already. Can I use RSLogix Emulate 500 (free downloadable from Rockwell Automations) for testing my ladder logic?
  24. Is it possible to make the ladder logic display the name, address and comment? If so how can i do this? Thank you, Mike
