  1. 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

  4. 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.  
  5. 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.

  7. 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.
  8. 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 
  9. 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.
  10. RSLogix 5000

    Hello Dear friends, I have following two problems in RSLogix 5000. I just started working with this software. I am using RSLogix 5000 for my project and I want to use inbuilt drag and drop elements like measuring instruments for example Voltmeter etc. in my ladder diagram. Does it possible or do I need to add some libraries or add ons for that?  I want to plot graph of different properties with respect to time in RSLogix 5000. my question is again the same; what is the way to do it or do I need extra Add ons?  Thank you in advance for your help :) Merry Christmas!!

  12. 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.
  13. 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

    This is a quick bit of code to show how a recipe function might be written if one were to do it in the PLC rather than the HMI. This is the basic building blocks with which a program could begin to be written. The BSET instruction combined with the indirect addressing method demonstrated would allow for a delete function. Copy and other functionality could be added using similar concepts.

  16. Is it possible to make the ladder logic display the name, address and comment? If so how can i do this? Thank you, Mike
  17. GX Developer

    hello, I have just joined Mr PLC so apologies if my question is answered elsewhere that I ought to have seen. I have just started to learn GX Developer and have produced a basic ladder diagram with just six rungs. When I print it A4 the result is far too small meaning any text cannot be read. I can find no way of making it print "fit the page" Can anyone advise me? Roger
  18. I'm just starting to learn Ladder Logic Programming. I'm using Allen Bradley RSLogix 5000. I've been tasked with developing a 'Simple' Coffee Machine which operates like so: Toggle Push Button to StartDrop Cup (for 10 seconds)Feed Hot Water (for 10 seconds)If required, Add Milk (for 10 seconds)If required, Add Sugar (for 10 seconds)Procedure Complete - Illuminate Complete Light (for 10 seconds)I have implemented everything except the OPTIONAL add Milk & OPTIONAL add Sugar. Options are: To have a Coffee without either Milk or Sugar.Or have a Coffee with Milk and Not Sugar.Or have a Coffee with Sugar & Not Milk.Or have a Coffee with BOTH Sugar & Milk. I'm considering using Toggle Buttons to select / jump to a Subroutine (choosing the required ingredient make-up). But I'm wondering if there is another way to sequentially go through the procedure? Thanks.
