Productivity 1000 Series PLC System Hardware

The Productivity 1000 series of programmable logic controllers has a slim stackable super compact design. This is sometimes also referred to as a shoebox PLC because of the shape and way in which expansion modules are added. This new Productivity 1000 series PLC is the latest in the Productivity series of controllers that have hit the market.
Productivity 1000 Series PLC System Hardware
Productivity 1000 (Stackable Micro PLC)
Productivity 2000 (Micro Modular Programmable Controller)
Productivity 3000 (Modular Programmable Controller)

These three series currently make up the Productivity Series from Automation Direct.
Productivity 1000 Series PLC System Hardware

The Productivity 1000 series PLC provides the following features for your automation control panel.
– 50MB user memory – Can handle very complex applications easily.
– 4 built-in communication ports – Easy connectivity to your network. This would include your PC, HMI, Networks, etc.
– Data logging up to 32 GB on a microSD card
– Add up to 15 IO modules to communicate to your field sensors.
– Free Software and 30 days of free training with every CPU from Automation Direct.
– Interactive PLC Configuration Tool
– Tag Names
– Auto-discovery IO – Physical I/O tags will be generated based on each module’s position in the base. You can also reconfigure the setup and assign new tags manually.
– I/O Modules have QR codes under the wiring cover. This can be scanned so you can have the latest specifications/wiring diagrams for the module.
– Limitless PID – Autotuning – Individual or Cascade Mode – etc
– Web Server and Mobile Access
– Advanced Software instruction set

We will be looking at a lot of these features of this powerful controller. Let’s start by looking at the hardware. Continue Reading!

Omron CP1H Data Control Instructions

The data control instructions in the Omron CP1H programmable logic controller are used to manipulate the outputs based upon control conditions. Control is the main purpose of these instructions within the PLC. Instructions include PID (Proportional, Integral, and Derivative), PID with Autotuning, Dead Band Control, Limit, Dead Zone Control, Time Proportional Output, Scaling, etc.
We will be looking at some of these instructions in the Omron CP1H PLC. Examples of the instructions will be presented. Continue Reading!

Omron CP1H Program Control Instructions

The Omron CP1H programmable logic controller has several different ways to control the program and the way in which your program executes. Sequence control, Subroutines, and Step instructions can be used. These are just a few ways in which the controller will execute your logic using a synchronous PLC scan. Understanding the PLC program scan will explain the synchronous and asynchronous program scanning.
Interlocks, Jumps, For Next Loops, Subroutines and Step instructions are some of the ways in which we can control our program in the PLC. We will be looking at some of these instructions in the Omron CP1H PLC. Examples of some of the instructions will be presented. Continue Reading!

Omron CP1H PLC Programming Counters

The Omron CP1H series of programmable logic controllers are capable of having 4096 basic counters. There are two basic counter instructions in the PLC. Each of the basic instructions can be either binary or BCD. The memory area for counters has separate areas for the Counter PVs (Present values) and the Counter Completion Flags. We will be looking at the basic Counter instructions in the CP1H along with some programming examples. Continue Reading!

Omron CP1H PLC System Hardware – CP1 Series

We will now look at the system hardware of the Omron CP1H controller. The Omron CP1 series of programmable logic controllers consists of three different units. CP1E is the cost-effective unit, CP1L is the high-performing controller that can come with embedded Ethernet and the Omron CP1H is the position control and comprehensive programmable logic controller.
We will be looking a the Omron CP1H for this series, but a majority of the information can be applied to the CP1E and the CP1L controllers as well.
Let’s start by looking at the Omron CP1H hardware.

The CP1 series is designed with the same basic architecture as the CS and CJ Series. The special I/O units and CPU bus units of the CJ series can then be used. Always use CPM1A expansion units and CPM1A expansion I/O units when expanding the I/O capacity. The following diagram indicates the position of the unit with respect to the CJ and CS series hardware.
