PLC Counter Programming – 3 Things to Know

PLC ladder logic counters are used in just about every PLC program. They will indicate how many times something has happened within the controller logic. Counters then can be used to trigger other outputs or items in the PLC. You can find counter applications in a variety of things every day.

Freight Carrier Weighing & Distribution EasyPLC


The freight carrier weighing and distribution will demonstrate sequencing and shift registers on the EasyPLC machine simulator. The product comes in two different ways and must be organized, weighed, and delivered on the right output ramp. This will be based on the weight of the product. The EasyPLC simulator freight carrier will show you how you can control this process through a programmable logic controller. Learning PLC programming can sometimes be challenging, but EasyPLC allows you to practice and learn your ladder logic skills on the controller of your choice. It is the best method of learning industrial control PLC programming.
Freight Carrier Weighing & Distribution EasyPLC
Using the five steps for PLC program development, we will discuss and show you how to program this freight carrier weighting and distribution simulator. An Automation Direct Click PLC will be used for this application, but the general methods can be used for just about any PLC on the market. This PLC simulator will show you sequencing and shift registers programming. Let’s get started.

Ladder Logic (NO) Contact – 3 Things to Know

Normally open (NO) contacts or inputs in the PLC ladder logic program do not mean the same as a wired normally open switch. NO contacts on the ladder logic provide the logic condition for the rung to turn on the output.
Ladder Logic Normally Open (NO) Contact - 3 Things to Know
We will be looking at three things about the normally open (NO) contact on our ladder logic program. The normally closed NC ladder logic contact will also be discussed at the end. Let’s get started.
