Programmable Logic Controllers

Programmable Logic Controllers or PLCs were developed in the late sixties by Bedford Associates of Bedford, Massachusetts to replace the hard-wired relay control systems used at the General Motors Hydra-Matic automatic transmission plant (Programmable Logic Controller, 2014). While they are still used extensively, relays have some problems. The biggest problem being they are mechanical devices and like all things mechanical they wear out and have to be replaced quite often. In addition, relays take...

system to be controlled which is the security system in our case, the ultimate purpose of the programmable controller is to control the external output devices which are lights and siren in our system .The movement of the controller system is constantly monitored by the input devices (door and window switches, smoke detectors…etc.) that give a specified condition and send a signal to the programmable controller outputs then to the external output devices to achieve the external control action. II...

like industrial automaƟon and process control, energy, data centers, buildings and residenƟal. For this analysis, we would be assessing and strategically evaluaƟng the process automaƟon segment (which includes wireless instrumentaƟon, programmable logic controllers, Manufacturing execuƟon systems, etc.). The Global process automaƟon market is about US$120 billion (2012) and is expected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4 to 5.5% over the next 5 years. The process automaƟon market...

Abstract  - In this paper , a method of detecting the faulty bottles in process industry is proposed. Here we analyse the simulaton study of one programmable logic controller (PLC) based control system by building up a program using ladder diagram and different adressing modes of SIEMENS PLC. This paper also presents comprehensive simulation of the performance of the different sensors used for sensing the faulty bottles in the moving conveyer belt monitored by PLC. The outputs can also be observed...

oil level rises above the low level sensor and it becomes open. (i.e. FALSE) Examples continued: Scan 4 After scan 4 the oil level rises above the high level sensor at it also becomes open (i.e. false) Scan 5 Since there is no more true logic path, output 500 is no longer energized (true) and therefore the motor turns off. Scan 6 After scan 6 the oil level falls below the high level sensor and it will become true again. Examples continued: Ladder diagram with Latching(Example...
