With any controller or computing device, being able to define a function once and reuse the function over and over is a great way to make your program more efficient and robust.

In Siemens TIA Portal, an FB, or Function Block, is used to define a function, or set of instructions, which can be executed on command from an organization block, or OB. The function block is executed each time it is called from an OB.

    9m 27s · Streamable only

    In the previous videos in this series, we learned how to create and configure the logic for an FB in the STEP7 programming environment.

    In this video, we will learn how an FB can be used in a practical way through creating the logic for an on/off valve with a command disagree alarm.

    In the next video in this series, I will configure the logic to call the FB from the Main OB block.

  6. 6. Practical Example of using an FB (Valve Control) - Part 2

    10m · Streamable only

    In the previous video in this series, we created an FB in the STEP7 programming environment to open and close an on/off valve with 2 position feedback sensors.

    We also configured an alarm to indicate a command disagree alarm that is generated if the valve has not reached the commanded position in a set amount of time.

    In this video, you will learn how to create the logic in the Main OB1 for an on/off valve with a command disagree alarm.

    In the previous video in this series, we learned how to create the logic in the Main OB1 to call an FB to control an on/off valve with a command disagree alarm.

    In this video, I will configure the Data Block, or DB, for the Function Block, compile the OB and simulate the operation of the valve.

    7m 27s · Streamable only

    In the previous videos in the series “How to Use Function Blocks (or FB) in a PLC Program”, I showed you how to configure an FB and its associated Data Block, or DB, and how to call the FB from the main program.

    In this video, you will learn:

    – What a drum sequencer is, and,
    – How it can be used to adjust several outputs based on the state of the process.
