  1. Output polarity selection

    Hello to everyone. Nice to meet you all. How are you? I hope you are doing well. I’m developing a program with the purpose of make something similar to a pulse train in the output. However, sometimes I need the output to be a “positive” pulse and sometimes a “negative” one. By positive and negative I mean the polarity in relation to the pulse train source. I’m trying to use a pair of bits in order to switch between the two choices of polarities. I attach a simplified version of the ladder diagram I’ve made. When I thought about the logic, it seemed logical to me, however, it isn’t working as supposed. SM0.4 is a pulse train source. According to the software manual, it is a pulse train with 50% duty cycle and a cycle time of 2 s. That it to say it says at TRUE for one second and return to FALSE for another second. I assign the value of that variable bit to the M0.0 memory bit. I get the negative version of the pulse train logically negating it in the Network #2.                 I assign the value of two inputs, I0.0 and I0.1, to other two memory bits, M0.1 and M0.2. ·         When both inputs are in a FALSE state, the output stays FALSE, disregarding the state of SM0.4. (Case #1) ·         When I0.0 is TRUE, M0.1 is TRUE. However, Q0.0 stays at FALSE no matter SM0.4 is TRUE or FALSE. I attach a pair of pictures. (Case #2) ·         On the other side, when I0.1 is TRUE, M0.2 is TRUE. In this case, the output shows the correct behavior. It is the negated version of the pulse train source. (Case #3)                 Has any of you experienced something similar? Is there a better way to execute my purpose?                 I’m not executing the program, just simulating it with KincoBuilder from Kinco. However, it has always worked fine for me. Thanks for you attention. I look forward for your responses. Kind regards!
  2. RSLOGIx 500

    Hello Dear Engineers; I am a PLC beginner learner, so please do not my my question as it sounds little ignorance my question is; how can i insert two output instructions in parallel but from the same input instructions. kindly check the drawing attached, the problem i can not find the right tool in my RSLogix 500 software.  please help me and i do highly appreciate that.   best regards,  Kevin 
  3. So I did this simple Function Block, pretty simple, and yet it keeps giving me this error, after a bunch of failed combinations the error persists, without telling me whats wrong. And therefore won't even allow me to download the program to the PLC (CJ2M CPU31) or even simulate.   I heard it's a simple thing to fix but I really dont know how to, since I'm quite new to this. Here's the function block  itself in the picture and the programming inside it, although since it gives me no errors, i don't think that would be the problem
  4. Hey guys, I am using RSLogix 5 and I noticed that anytime I go to add a rung comment/title and there is an output in the rung that it attaches the comment to the output by default, and if it is a blank/new rung then it attaches the comment to the rung by default. I want it to always attach the comment to the rung, not to the output. Is there anyway to change it so that it automatically always attaches the comment/title to the rung by default regardless if I have an output in it or not. It's not a super impotant thing, but it is just getting annoying to always have to switch to "attach to file/rung" every time, and if I forget, then I have to go back and remove it from that output. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
