ACC Automation 2016 Review

Acc Automation

We would like to take a few minutes and reflect on the past, current and future of ACC Automation. You have help us succeed in our best year yet.

Starting off we learned how to:
Create a PLC with HMI Training and Learning Environment Free – Utilized the Do-More Designer Software and the AdvancedHMI Software we communicated Modbus TCP to the Do-More simulator. This was all done on one computer without any need for additional hardware. The best thing about this was that the investment was only time learning the packages. Continue Reading!

Click PLC AdvancedHMI Communication

Advanced HMI is a powerful, adaptable HMI/SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) development package that takes advantage of Visual Studio. There is no coding required and you can simply drag and drop items onto the page. The best thing is that the software is free. We will look at using AdvancedHMI with the Click PLC. Our sample Click PLC program will read the present value (PV) and the indicating lights on our Solo Process Temperature Controller. It will then write the set value (SV) to the Solo. This communication will be done using Modbus RTU protocol over a RS485 serial port on the Click. The AdvancedHMI package will communicate Modbus TCP over Ethernet to the Click PLC. We will be able to monitor our PV and set our SV on the Solo via the AdvancedHMI window.  Keep on Reading!

Click PLC Program Control Instructions

The program control instructions will allow us to specify what parts of the logic get solved and when this happens. This will control how the PLC will scan and solve your logic in your program.  Keep on Reading!

Click PLC Compare and Math Instructions

Compare and math instructions in the Click PLC will allow you to do a number of things. We will use the compare instructions to turn on bits which will indicate production shifts. Using the math instruction we will convert the number of units made to a weight.  Keep on Reading!

Click PLC Timers and Counters

Continuing our series, we will now look at timers and counters and how they are used in the Click PLC. Previously we have discussed:
Click PLC System Hardware
Click PLC Installing the Software
Click PLC Establish Communication
Click PLC Numbering System and Addressing
The programming software and manuals can be downloaded from the Automation Direct website free of charge.  Keep on Reading!
