- 1. 1 ___________________________________ 3. LOGIC CIRCUITS ___________________________________ This chapter is a consideration of the common logic functions. 1. AND Figure below shows a situation where an output is not energized unless two, normally open, switches are both closed. Switch A and switch B have both to be closed, which thus gives an AND logic situation. Truth table F = A & B F = A . B BAF F=AB An example of an AND gate is an interlock control system for a machine tool so that it can only be operated when the safety guard is in position and the power switched on.
- 2. 2 1. OR Figure below shows an electrical circuit where an output is energized when switch A or B, both normally open, are closed. This describes an OR logic gate in that input A or input B must be on for there to be an output. Truth table F = A OR B F = A + B BAF An example of an OR gate control system is a conveyor belt transporting bottled products to packaging where a deflector plate is activated to deflect bottles into a reject bin if either the weight is not within certain tolerances or there is no cap on the bottle.
- 3. 3 3. NOT Figure below shows an electrical circuit controlled by a switch that is normally closed. When there is an input to the switch, it opens and there is then no current in the circuit. This illustrates a NOT gate in that there is an output when there is no input and no output when there is an input. The gate is sometimes referred to as an inverter. An example of a NOT gate control system is a light that comes on when it becomes dark, i.e. when there is no light input to the light sensor there is an output.
- 4. 4 4. NAND Suppose we follow an AND gate with a NOT gate. The consequence of having the NOT gate is to invert all the outputs from the AND gate. An alternative, which gives exactly the same results, is to put a NOT gate on each input and then follow that with OR. BAF An example of a NAND gate control system is a warning light that comes on if, with a machine tool, the safety guard switch has not been activated and the limit switch signaling the presence of the workpiece has not been activated.
- 5. 5 5. NOR Suppose we follow an OR gate by a NOT gate. The consequence of having the NOT gate is to invert the outputs of the OR gate. An alternative, which gives exactly the same results, is to put a NOT gate on each input and then an AND gate for the resulting inverted inputs. BAF
- 6. 6 6. Exclusive OR (XOR) The OR gate gives an output when either or both of the inputs are 1. Sometimes there is, however, a need for a gate that gives an output when either of the inputs is 1 but not when both are 1.
