EasyPLC Machine Editor – Design a Simulation

EasyPLC comes with many prebuilt machines for you to develop the programming logic. These can be modified, or new custom machines can be programmed using the machine editor. The machine editor comes as a standard feature of the EasyPLC Software Suite. The EasyPLC Machines Simulator editor is an easy-to-use tool enabling you to create easy, medium, or complex mechanical systems. These machine systems can include assembled mechanical, electrical, and electronic components.
If the components you need are unavailable in the library, you can use the components editor to create your mechanisms and devices. These machines help you to enhance your PLC programming skills. You can also replicate real, physical systems to be programmed virtually and avoid damaging the existing system. Alternatively, you can start programming and verifying your program before making the machine.
EasyPLC Machine Editor - Design a SimulationEasyPLC comes with over 40 prebuilt machines. We will be using the Machine Simulator Editor to create a new machine mixing tank simulation. It will include a tank, control panel, and operation indication. 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.
Freight Carrier Weighing & Distribution EasyPLCUsing 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.

EasyPLC Simulator Productivity PLC Robotic Cell

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. The logic will step through different steps in order to perform the task. In this case, an engine is lifted and placed onto a rack.
EasyPLC Machine Simulator Productivity PLC Robotic CellWe will be using a Productivity Suite Programming Simulator to program this engine loader of the robotic cell. This will be done using Modbus TCP (Ethernet) for communications. Using the five steps for program development we will show how this sequencer is programmed. Let’s get started.

Click PLC – EasyPLC PLC Mixer Programming

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 industrial mixer is one of these machines. When the start pushbutton is energized it will fill up a tank until the lower level sensor is detected. The mixer blades will then be turned on until the top sensor is detected. The tank is then drained past the low sensor and the process repeats for 3 cycle times. Once the sequence is complete, the tank is completely drained and ready to start again.
The Click PLC will be used to program this virtual 3D mixer machine. A DRUM instruction will be used in the PLC for the sequencing. Using the Click Plus PLC, we will connect to the mixing machine. This will be done using Modbus TCP (Ethernet) for communications. Using the five steps for program development we will show how this is programmed. Let’s get started.

EasyPLC Software Suite – Quick Start

The EasyPLC Software Suite is a complete PLC, HMI, and Machine Simulator. This quick start aims to help you quickly learn this software suite. The manual that comes with EasyPLC Software Suite can always be referenced when required.
EasyPLC Quick Start Software Suite
EasyPLC Quick Start Software SuiteWe will be using the simple conveyor in the machine simulator. The EasyPLC PLC will be used to program the ladder logic for this simple conveyor. Compiling and transferring the program to the EasyPLC Virtual CPU, we will demonstrate the conveyor’s control. An HMI will also be programmed to indicate the direction of the conveyor. Let’s get started.
