Parking Cars Simulator PLC Programming Part 2

Parking Cars Simulator PLC Programming Part 2

We began using the five steps to PLC programming development in part 1 for the parking cars simulator. This involved determining what must be done, looking at the inputs and outputs, and developing the sequence of operation. Automated car parking is a great way to learn PLC programming. It is easily understood how this system … Read more

BRX Do-More PLC Data Logging (CSV)

Data logging does not have to be complicated anymore. The BRX Do-More Series PLC can log your specific data up to 32 Gigabits on a Micro SD Card. It will store your data for future data analysis in a CSV (Comma Separated Value) Txt file based on time and/or event. This is all accomplished with … Read more

BRX Do-More PLC Drum Instruction Sequence

We will now look at the drum instruction in our BRX Do-More Controller. Drum instructions are great tools when you have a simple sequence of events that need to occur at a set time interval or as a result of an event. They mimic an electromagnetic drum sequencer. The BRX Series PLC has a drum … Read more

BRX Do-More PLC Math Instructions

Math instructions are used to perform mathematical calculations. The BRX Do-More PLC has math instructions that can be used in a wide variety of applications. We will be looking at the INC increment, DEC decrement, LERP linear Interpolation, RANDSEED Random Number Seed, and the MATH Calculated Expression instructions. The automation system that you implement may … Read more

BRX Do-More PLC High Speed IO (Input / Output)

The BRX Do-More series of programmable logic controllers has built in high speed inputs and outputs. Every CPU will have either 6 or 10 high speed inputs (HSI) available depending on the model. These inputs can be used for input frequencies from 0 to 250Khz. 250Khz represents 250000 input counts per second that can be … Read more

BRX Do-More PLC Counters Explained

A majority of the programmable logic controller (PLC) programs will include a counter instruction. The BRX Do-More series of programmable logic controllers have several different counters available for your program. There are five different basic counter instructions in the PLC. The memory area for counters (CT) includes the Counter PVs (Present Values) Counter SVs (Set … Read more
