Productivity 2000 Series PLC Online Programming

The Productivity Suite Software allows us to modify our existing program and execute the new code without stopping the scanning of the PLC. This is referred to as online programming or editing. We change the ladder logic code and when we save it to the PLC, the current scan of the PLC is held until the new code is written into the unit. It then releases the scan and our new program starts to execute. This happens in milliseconds so our process can continue to operate.
Productivity 2000 Series PLC Online ProgrammingWe will be taking our existing Start / Stop circuit from last time and add a Jog input using online programming. Changing the program online is a common method of programming. The documentation will also be changed during this online program change. Let’s get started.

Productivity 2000 Series PLC First Program

We will be creating our first Productivity 2000 Series PLC program. This will be done in ladder logic. The default physical IO and PLC task management will be discussed. Previously we communicated to our productivity 2000 PLC and automatically created the hardware configuration. We also set the hot-swap feature of our physical input and output cards on the controller.
Productivity 2000 Series PLC First ProgramWe will now write our first PLC ladder logic program in our Productivity 2000 Series controller. This will be a simple start-stop circuit. We will download and then run the program, monitoring the ladder logic using the Productivity Suite software. Let’s get started.

Productivity 2000 Series PLC Communication

We will be connecting the Productivity 2000 Series PLC with our computer running the Productivity Suite Software. A micro USB and an Ethernet (RJ45) communication link will be made to our programmable logic controller.
The latest Productivity Suite software version is 3.10.2.1. This is the programming software that we installed last time and will be used to communicate and create our logic for control.
Productivity 2000 Series PLC CommunicationWe will be connecting the P2000 PLC to the Productivity Suite programming software with both the micro USB and an Ethernet (RJ45). Once connected we will be automatically setting the PLC configuration and writing this into the controller. Let’s get started.
