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.
Productivity 2000 PLC Ladder Logic OutputsWe 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.

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 Debug Mode

The productivity suite programming software has a debug mode. This will allow you to view and control the rung execution on your ladder logic code. These programming tools allow you to troubleshoot, find, and correct errors in the PLC programming logic.
Productivity 2000 Series PLC Debug ModeWe will be adding a couple of rungs to our exiting start-stop circuit we created last time in our productivity 2000 PLC. Using the debug mode we will explain the scan of the PLC and use these tools to sequence the logic. Let’s get started.

Productivity 2000 Series PLC – P2000 Hardware

The Productivity 2000 series of programmable logic controllers has a slim DIN rail density form factor. This means that this micro-modular PLC can have a power supply, CPU, and seven IO modules in only 10-1/2 inches. Input and output cards can be installed, removed, or replaced without turning the power off to the PLC system. (Hot-swappable) This means that your system can remain running while troubleshooting your system hardware. The Productivity 2000 hardware supports up to 240 local I/O for discrete, analog, and motion applications with a high-performance CPU equipped with five communications ports and 29 discrete and analog I/O modules. Several remote IO options are available on this award-winning PLC in the Productivity series family.
