EasyPLC Paint Line Bit Shift – BRX Do-More PLC

EasyPLC Paint Line Bit Shift - BRX Do-More PLC

The Machine Simulator (MS) is part of the EasyPLC software suite. It has many built-in machines that are used to show different programming techniques. The paint line is one of these machines. It will use a bit shift (shift register) to track bottles along a conveyor belt. All the bottles will be detected using photocells … Read more

P1AM Arduino P1 Digital Inputs and Outputs 2

In part 1 we added additional discrete digital inputs and outputs modules (cards) to our P1AM-START1 (Industrial Arduino) ProductivityOpen starter kit with Ethernet. A program was then discussed that will print the modules in our system and then set and reset discrete digital inputs and outputs. P1-16TR – Productivity1000 relay output module, 16-point, 6-24 VDC/6-120 … Read more

PLC Example – Sorting Station (Shift Register)

plc example shift register sorting station

We will use the PLC to sort items on a conveyor operating shift register instructions. We will apply the five steps to a PLC example program development of a sorting station. The program will use shift registers to track colored parts down a conveyor and sort, depending on color, into one of three locations. Developing … Read more

PLC Program Example – Shift Register (Conveyor)

We apply the five steps of PLC development to a plc shift register example. This PLC programming example will use a shift register to reject a product on a conveyor. When programming a PLC, you need to track what has previously happened. Shift registers allow you to do just that. We will look at a … Read more
