Still very new to this - I'm a Theatre Technician by trade!
I have an illuminated push button that I want to use to turn a relay on and off. The first push turns the relay on, the second push turns it off and then repeat indefinitely. I've done lots of research online, but I just can't get my ladder to work. I've been trying to get it to work using a CTU, but no joy. Could I have some help please with the simplest way of doing this? Ladder examples would be greatly appreciated, as I say, I'm very new and trying to learn this around my day job!
I am using an Allen Bradley Micrologix 1200 1762-L40BWA, RS Non-latching relay and a N/C Push Button. All programmed in RS Logix 500.
Just for clarity - I want to have just 1 input - the Push Button and 1 output - the relay.
Many thanks and best wishes,
This is what I did with the CTU. I used a N/O Count Up contact to latch the relay on and a N/O Done contact to un-latch the relay with the timer set to a preset of 2. However I couldn't get the RES contact to work within the programme to restart the timer once the counter had completed!
