BRX (Do-More) PLC PID Ramp Soak Profile

The purpose of a ramp soak profile is to make gradual, controlled changes in temperature (Ramp), followed by a temperature hold (Soak) period.
We will be using our Do-More Proportional-Integral-Derivative PID Instruction with PWM output that we looked at last time to apply the ramp/soak profile. This will be done on the BRX Do-More PLC.
Using the immersion heater in a cup of water to keep the temperature at a constant value, we will be adjusting the profile of the temperature as we increase the setpoint (Ramp) and hold that set point for a predetermined time. (Soak) We will then decrease that temperature back to the original setting. (Ramp)

We will be modifying our existing program from our PID with PWM Output post. Let’s get started.
