    3m 49s · Streamable only

    In this lesson, we are going to introduce you to the instructions that exist in the “program controls operations” folder. Those are the Jump, Jump Not, and Label instructions. These instructions allow you to execute a network or networks in an order of your choosing. For instance, you may have a comparison instruction in network 7 that, when equal, needs to do a particular math instruction located in network 14 or network 3. The jump instruction, w...

    In the previous lesson, we got you familiar with the Jump, Jump Not, and Label instructions. In this lesson, we are going start writing some code that uses a Jump instruction, in a creative way, to perform an Exponential math function. We start the lesson by adding a couple of move instructions that will set our base and power numbers. Following that, we will add some math instructions and show you how we are going to get the code to execute some o...

We will continue, in this lesson, writing the rest of the code and insert a Jump instruction to loop through some of the networks that will produce our desired result. We will download the code to the simulator and demonstrate the functionality. We will then take the code, with the hard-coded base and power numbers, and replace those with memory addr...

    4m 5s · Streamable only

    In this lesson, we are going to familiarize you with a process called a watchdog. In all computers, including PLC’s, there is a background process that ensures that the logic solve or processing of all of the needed functions occurs in a timely manner. We describe exactly how this background process functions and what happens if the watchdog determines that the logic solve is taking longer than is expected. We are also going to talk about scan cycl...

    In a previous lesson we explained the purpose of the watchdog timer. In this lesson, we will expand that lesson a little further and demonstrate the function of the watchdog timer. We are going to modify a previous program that contains a properly executed jump instruction such that it creates a condition called an infinite loop. An infinite loop condition causes the watchdog timer to time out, which in turn causes the PLC to go into Stop mode. We ...

    In the previous lesson, we had a program that contained a comparator instruction and it properly executed our jump instruction. We then changed that instruction to a field input. When we forced that input to true in the simulator, we managed to put our program in an infinite loop, causing a Stop mode in the PLC. In this lesson, we will be working in the simulator again and viewing the diagnostics buffer. We will again make the program enter an infi...

    3m 55s · Streamable only

    In some cases you may need to flash a bit in your PLC program. Let’s say that you have an HMI that is not capable of flashing an alarm notification. In that case, you may use the PLC program and one of a number of ways to flash a bit. You can then use that bit on the HMI to indicate a flashing alarm symbol. There are many reasons why you may want to use flashing bits. Let’s open up this lesson and see how you can do that.

    In the previous lesson we talked about the different ways to generate timing pulses or flashing bits within your PLC program. Also, in other lessons, some time ago, we discussed how to generate pulses using timers. In this lesson, we are going to recap how to create these pulses and work with the simulator to demonstrate the code.

    In this lesson, we are going to discuss how to handle alarming. Visual alarm indicators may be lights on the plant floor or alarm symbols on an HMI screen and as common industry standard, an indicator should flash when an alarm occurs but only until acknowledged. After acknowledgement, the indicator should remain steady until the alarm condition clears, at which time, the indicator will be deactivated. We are going to write some code in this lesson...

As you know, we ran into a little problem with the code clearing the alarm after acknowledgement but it would not re-post the alarm in constant mode. In this lesson, we are going to troubleshoot the code and determine what we need to do in order to post the alarm as flashing and when acknowledged, post the alarm in constant mode. Open up ...

    In this lesson we are going to energize 16 lamps at the same time, with the press of a switch. After some time delay, we want the lamps to turn off one at a time, one every second, until all of lamps are de-energized. We will be using the shift instruction to accomplish this task. After we write the first network of code and download it to the simulator, we discover that the code doesn’t work quite as we expected. We correct that problem and retest...

Once the switch is released, after a short delay, the lamps are supposed to turn off, one by one, every second until they are all off. We simulated the code only to find that we had a problem. In this lesson, we continue working with the same code and add some additional logic to make the program work as we anticipate. Let’s see h...

After a short time delay, the lamps are supposed to turn off one at a time, one every second until all of lamps are turned off.

    In previous lessons, we have been working with the shift instruction and have written a few lines of code that will turn on and off some PLC outputs in a specific order. We’ve been writing code to create different patterns to turn on and off 16 lamps. We started out using 2 switches and eventually, through a series of lessons, thought it would be more operator friendly to use only 1 switch so we wrote code to take care of that. In this lesson, we w...

We will continue to modify our program from the previous lesson, where we worked with the logic such that we wanted to turn on the first lamp and after a delay, turn it off. We then want the next lamp to turn on and then off, repeating this pattern until all lamps have cycled, from top to bottom, but we want to leave ...

As we’ve discussed previously, the CPU first scans the inputs and puts the statuses or values within a memory area in the PLC. The scan then solves the logic based on the input statuses. And finally, the CPU sets the outputs. On some occasions you may have an input that is not yet functioning and you may want to temporarily change the status of that input in o...

This modification option modifies the value of an input address after the logic solve portion of the scan cycle. We will give you more details about this...
