  1. Ladder Display Format Change

    My program has the option Tool | Options | Program Editor | Ladder | Ladder Diagram Display Format set to 11 Contacts.  Are there any repercussions to changing this on an existing program?  I would like to spread it out to the 17 Contact setting.
  2. FX2N & Inverter iG5A on RS485

    Hello everyone, I'm a beginner in RS485 communications and i want to control 2 inverter LS iG5A via RS485 from a PLC Mitsubishi FX2N I really don't understand how i should aproach and start this part of program in Ladder Diagram, to write and read parameters from Inverters.  Please help me with an example    Thanks.

    Need Help! I uploaded structured ladder program into FX3S PLC. But When I try to read it from PLC it says the program cannot be opened. 
  4. RSLogix500 Ladder Problem

    Ok, so I have 22 bits that I need to monitor the status of; all in separate words. Each change of state (on each bit) I need to trigger a timer and have the timer done to completion. I'd like to have the timer reset if a bit changes state during timing. I'd like to keep it to one timer. I'd like to keep things as simple as possible so the less rungs / branches the better. Any help?
  5. 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    
  6. 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!
  7. Problem failed to start ladder engine

    Hello my brother and sister at this forum, please help me, my problem is after i make ladder diagram and iam click button simulation -> Work online simulator ( CTRL + SHIFT + W ) then appear warning  "failed to start ladder engine", what a problem?? thanks before
  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
  9. Starting Problem with FX2N-2LC

    Dear Experts, I have been trying to activate FX2N-2LC temperature control block but nothing could help. I have tried the ladder logic which is available in Mitsubishi manual but this is not any output from the module. Please help me or guide me to get rid over this problem, I am attaching the ladder diagram so you guys will get the Idea to where I am going wrong.   FX2N-2L Program.pdf
  10. I hate to start a new topic on such an old processor but I forced to keep this thing working until I can upgrade it.  We are having funny issues with outputs.  At first they were on a PLC5/60.  We suspected a bad processor so we changed to a PLC5/40 we had in our tool crib and the problem didn't go away.  Some of our outputs in the ladder are being evaluated to true but not turning on.  We can force the output on and it will come on and when we remove the force it will turn back off.  I've never seen this problem before on any processor.  All the logic leading up to the output is true but the output is not turning on and is there not green. I've already checked all the obvious causes.  The instruction is an OTE.  The output is not duplicated somewhere else in the logic that is turning it off.  The ladder file is being scanned.  I replaced the output with a B3 bit and on the next line had the B3 bit turn on the ouput.  The B3 output bit turned on but the output did not.  This output is on a remote I/O rack and other outputs on that rack are working. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  14. GX Developer commands

    Hello everyone! Could someone help me and explain me this block of a ladder diagram I'm working with? I do understand the M800 is always ON contact, for the PLC to not lose the values.  Also I know that the DIV is a division, the FLT is a integer to floating point (thing I don't understand), the DEMUL is a floating point multiplication (thing I also don't understand), the INT is a floating point to 16-bit integer, and the MOV is for moving a value from a data register to an other data register. Help... :(

  16. 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
  17. Hello, I got a new work job to design a cycle tester for a mechanism to make sure will work for at least 5000 cycles open - close. I never made a pls program I start researching few days ago and seams to be very complicate to make it. I have a TM221C16R PLC from Schneider. please help me with some instructions. the cycle tester will have a start pushbutton, stop pushbutton, door open switch, one air cylinder with solenoid to push and pull and a counter. Thank you, Romica

  20. plc ladder switch tricks

    PLC ladder, made to enter an inverted trapezoid, which is to complex, simple post, here is an inverted trapezoid diagram:   The output is made positive trapezoid that briefly after complex.   Writing good ladder, we must follow the above principles, the review does not meet the changes. First, draw the conventional logic circuit diagram, and then facing compile command statement table, table instruction statement written out, can be transformed into a ladder. Simple procedures can be directly edited ladder, more complex, and must be transformed by means of instruction statement tables. Some books say, the ladder of transformation, to follow the "Shen left and right light" principle, with the above said is a meaning. More experience and unwritten rules, but is conducive to the reader to understand, modify. In fact, PLC programming software, as long as the change can succeed, grammatical, are right.  
  21. 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

    I was hoping to get feed back on my website.  The site is for beginner PLC programers. The tutorials start right from the beginning with describing what a PLC is and then teaches basic instructions.

  23. 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.
  24. Starting Multiple Motors / Pumps

    Greetings, We (in the steel industry) have many pumps / motors (large and small).  Generally we use soft-starts,  cross-line starters (E3+) or even Flex drives. There may be several motors in a pool to start where we need only say 2 of 3 to be running at any one time  When it's time to start them, we may need to stagger start them, if one fails, the spare may need to start.  My question to the group is... Are there any philosophies out there (and hopefully pseudo or actual code) as to how to start a subset of motors/pumps within a pool of motors and maintain the configuration running ? I appreciate any and all comments. David
