    • PROGRAMMABLE LOGICCONTROLLERS (PLC): AN OVERVIEW

    • Mixer Process Control Problem • A mixer motor is to be used to automatically stir the liquid in a vat when the temperature and pressure reach preset values. • Manual operation of the motor is provided by means of a separate pushbutton station.© 2011, The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc
    • Hardwired relay method for control of motor The motor starter coil (M) is energized when both thepressure and temperature switches are closed or when the manual pushbutton is pressed. © 2011, The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc
    • PLC method for control of motor The same input field devices Field devices are(pressure switch, temperature hardwired to an switch, and pushbutton) are input module. used. © 2011, The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc
    • PLC method for control of motorThe same output field Starter coil isdevice (motor starter hardwired to an coil) is used. output module. © 2011, The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc
    • Enter the PLC ladder logic program into the memory of the CPU.• The symbols represent instructions and the numbers represent the instruction’s addresses.• Each input and output device is given an address, which lets the PLC know where it is connected. © 2011, The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc
    • • For the program to operate, the controller is placed in the RUN mode.• During each scan the controller examines the status of input devices, executes the user program, and changes outputs accordingly.• The coil O/1 is energized when contacts I/1 and I/2 are closed or when contact I/3 is closed.• Either of these conditions provides a continuous logic path across the rung that includes the coil. © 2011, The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc
