## Productivity 2000 PLC Ladder Logic Math

Math instructions perform mathematical calculations. The Productivity 2000 Series PLC has math instructions that you can use in various applications. We will look at the Data Statistics (DATA) and the Math Editor (MATH).
We will demonstrate both of these instructions using the examples in the help file. An average wind speed will be calculated using the data instruction based on six different inputs. Converting Celsius to Fahrenheit degrees will be done with the math instruction for an oven temperature. The automation system that you implement may involve these instructions. You will require using these instructions in your commissioned programs as a system integrator.
Let’s get started with the Productivity 2000 Series PLC Math Instructions.

## EasyPLC Palletizing Robot Programming Click PLC

The EasyPLC palletizing robot will demonstrate sequencing and robot control using a PLC. This palletization process will fill a box container with six cans. A servo-controlled gantry robot using x and y is used to do this operation. The complete box will then travel along to another conveyor to an unloading area. A robot will then pick up the box and place this on a pallet.
We will discuss and show you how to program this EasyPLC palletizing robot machine using the five steps for PLC program development. This will involve all the ladder logic to load and unload using the robot simulator. This PLC simulator will show sequencing instructions. A drum instruction in the PLC will be used with events and a counter to load the box with six cans. Another drum instruction in the PLC, with time, will be used to unload the container onto a pallet. 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. Serial Modbus RTU communication between the machine simulator and the Click PLC will be used. An Ethernet connection will be used with the Click programming software. Let’s get started.

## Productivity 2000 PLC Ladder Logic Timers

Timers are one of the first things you learn about programmable logic controllers. (PLC) Just about every PLC program will include timer instructions. The Productivity 2000 Series PLC has several different timer instructions for your program. We discussed the timed coil (TMC) and flasher coil (FLS) last time as part of the ladder logic output discussion. (Ladder Logic Output InstructionVideo)
We will now look at using the Simple Timer (STMR) and the Timer (TMR) instructions in the productivity suite software. Let’s get started.

## Productivity 2000 PLC Ladder Logic Outputs

The Productivity Suite Software comprises more than 82 instructions divided into 14 categories. These instructions include Out, Set, Reset, OR Out, Flasher, Debounce, Timed, Toggle, Program End, and No Operation. Coils (Outputs) are one of these categories of ladder logic instructions to program your productivity PLC controller. Ladder logic outputs or coils are in every PLC program.
We will be looking at these instructions in the Productivity 2000 series PLC. We will also look at organizing your favorite instructions. This will make them easier to find when programming the productivity PLC. Let’s get started.

## 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.
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.
