Compact PLC

PLC Programming Practice-Types of PLC

1. Compact PLC:- Inbuilt power supply, I/O modules, CPU, Communication Ports.Compact PLCs are characterized by their all-in-one design, incorporating an integrated power supply, CPU, I/O modules, and communication ports within a single unit. They are typically used in applications where space is limited or where a simplified setup is desired. Example: Siemens SIMATIC S7-1200 series.

PLC Programming Practice-Processor Memory Organization

The memory of a PLC is organized by type. The memory space can be divided into two broad categories: Program Memory Data memory. Advanced ladder logic functions allow controllers to perform calculations, make decisions, and do other complex tasks. Timers and counters are examples of ladder logic functions. They are more complex than basic input

Central Processing Unit

PLC Programming Practice-Basics of PLC

National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) defines PLC as a digital electronic device that uses a programmable memory to store instructions and to implement specific functions such as logic, sequence, timing, counting, and arithmetic operations to control machines and processes. ● The PLC is an assembly of solid-state digital logic elements designed to make logical decisions

Elements of the modernization example system to be left hardwired

Large Relay System Modernization

This is an example of modernization for a machine control system. It will go from hardwired relay logic, to PLC programmed logic. With the exception of the ones that the controller can execute (e.g. timers and control relays), the field devices will not change. Modernizing this machine’s control system will bring many benefits: * A

Bottle-filling system

Continuous Bottle-Filling Control use the PLC

This example (see Figure 43) will show how to implement a control program. It detects the position and waits for 0.5 seconds before filling the bottle with water until the photosensor detects that it is full. Figure 43: Bottle-filling system. The control program will wait for 0.7 seconds after the bottle has been filled before

PLC implementation of the VS drive

The PLC’s AC Motor Drive Interface

Speed control of AC motors with variable speeds (VS) drives is a common PLC application. Figure 39 illustrates an operator station that can be used to control a VS motor manually. This station’s programmable controller implementation will allow for automatic motor speed control via an analog interface. The output voltage can be varied (0-10 VDC)

Real inputs and outputs to the PLC

Reduced-Voltage-Start Motor Control using the PLC

Figure 36 illustrates the control circuit and wiring diagram of a 65% tapped, autotransformer, reduced-voltage-start motor control circuit. The reduced-voltage start reduces the motor’s inrush current (locked-rotor current), to only 42% at full speed. The timer should be set at 5.3 seconds in this example. The instantaneous contacts in lines 2 and 3, must also

Forward/Reverse Motor Interlocking use the PLC

Figure 31 shows a hardwired forward/reverse circuit with push button and electrical interlockings. The simplified wiring diagram of this motor is shown in Figure 32. Figure 31: Hardwired forward/reverse motor circuit. This circuit must be implemented using the overload contacts in the PLC. They are used to monitor the existence of overload conditions.
