We will create a new project file in RSLogix 500.
We will select the MicroLogix 1100 Series B processor.
For this example, We will be using more I/O than is available on-board with the CPU, so we open the I/O configuration item to add one 16-point DC digital input card. For this purpose, we want to add a 1762-IQ16 card to the first available slot, which is slot 1.
Then we add one 8-point DC relay output card, 1762-OW8 card to slot 2.
Whenever we construct a program that involves equipment that moves boxes or other items from one location to another using conveyors, robots, or autonomous vehicles, there is always a possibility of a jam, sensor failure, or motor failure.
Whenever a normal operation is interrupted, it is imperative to stop all motors in order to prevent harm to the product or personnel.
An Emergency Stop button coupled with fault detection logic will be required to ensure that all conveyor motors are stopped upon sensing a failure condition.
