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

Productivity 1000 PLC AdvancedHMI Modbus TCP

We will now look at communication between the Productivity 1000 PLC (Modbus TCP Server) and AdvancedHMI (Modbus TCP Client). Advanced HMI is a powerful, adaptable HMI/SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) development package that takes advantage of Visual Studio. There is no coding required and you can simply drag and drop items onto the page. … Read more

Productivity 1000 Series PLC Firmware Update

Firmware is usually PLC operating system code that is written into a read-only memory. The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) of a PC (personal computer) is a good example of firmware. It provides a low-level interface between the hardware and software. The firmware for the productivity series of PLCs must be downloaded separately from the … Read more
