Parking Cars Simulator PLC Programming Part 1

Parking Cars Simulator PLC Programming Part 1

Automated car parking is a great way to learn PLC programming. It is easily understood how this system is to function and operates. The 3D graphics on the machine simulator are good for visually seeing this interaction between the PLC and the virtual machine. Using the five steps to PLC programming development, we will determine … Read more

Rock Crusher Plant EasyPLC BRX Do-More

Rock Crusher Plant EasyPLC BRX Do-More

A rock crusher (jaw crushers) is also known as “rock breakers” and is used to break up larger, more complex materials into more manageable pieces. The EasyPLC simulator rock crusher plant will show you how you can control this process through a programmable logic controller. We will be using Do-More technology to control this plant … Read more

EasyPLC Simulator Robotic Cell BRX Do-More PLC

EasyPLC Simulator Robotic Cell BRX Do-More PLC

The Machine Simulator (MS) is part of the EasyPLC software suite. It has many built-in machines that are used to show different programming techniques. The robotic cell example is one of these machines. This will demonstrate a sequencer example. In this case, an engine is lifted and placed onto a rack. The logic will step … Read more

BRX Do-More PLC Using Modbus IO Scanner Profile

BRX Do-More PLC Using the Modbus IO Scanner Profile

The Do-More Designer Programming Software (2.9) or higher includes a Modbus I/O Scanner with some profiles for Modbus Server (Slave) devices. This will greatly reduce the time it takes to implement and troubleshoot communications in your projects. Modbus communications are done independent of the PLC scan time and will have little or no ladder logic … Read more

BRX Do-More Simple Modbus Serial Communication

The newest Do-More Designer Programming Software (2.9) version includes a Modbus I/O Scanner. This Modbus scanner will simplify Modbus RTU serial communications to any device. Communications are done independent of the PLC scan time and will have little or no ladder logic for the program. We will be communicating to a Solo process temperature controller … Read more

BRX Do-More PLC High-Speed Input Pulse Catch

BRX Do-More PLC High-Speed Input Pulse Catch

The High-Speed Input Pulse Catch will set an output that can be seen by the PLC ladder logic scan in response to an input pulse. Inputs that are too fast to reliably be seen by the ladder logic scan time will be seen. The BRX Do-More series of programmable logic controllers have built-in high-speed inputs. … Read more
