Productivity 1000 PLC to Modbus TCP RTU BX-MBIO

We will now look at the productivity 1000 plc modbus tcp rtu communication to the BX-MBIO controller. The Productivity 1000 PLC can communicate to a remote I/O (input and output) controller modules using the Modbus protocol for communications. The BX-MBIO provides both Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP interfaces. Modbus RTU is a serial communication and … Read more

Productivity 1000 Series PLC PID Ramp Soak

Productivity PLC – PID Ramp Soak Instruction The purpose of a ramp soak instruction is to make gradual, controlled changes in temperature (Ramp), followed by a temperature hold (Soak) period. We will be using our Proportional-Integral-Derivative PID Instruction that we looked at last time to apply the ramp/soak instruction. Using the immersion heater in a … Read more

Productivity 1000 Series PLC PID Instruction

PID Loop (PID) Instruction (Auto Tuning) – Productivity 1000 PLC A Proportional-Integral-Derivative algorithm is a generic Control Loop feedback formula widely used in industrial control systems. A PID algorithm attempts to correct the Error between a measured process variable and the desired setpoint by calculating and then outputting a corrective action that can adjust the … Read more
