  1. is their any chance you are in Alberta
    I have a problem where I purchased equipment that does not talk to each other
    I have two normally open NPN speed sensors and two proportional valve controllers of different designs, One is from Canada and the other from China. It turns out I have no technical support from either manufacturer as well

    the goal is to speed control a conveyor belt to a constant speed as the load varies. I used DO3 hydraulic proportional valves and I have a charlynn motor with a built in sensor. Its simple enough but wow.

    1. Hi Evan
      Unfortunately, I am in Ontario.
      If you can send me the specifications and information on the system, I’ll take a look at them.
      Thanks Evan,

  2. Hi
    You are doing a great job.I want you to advertise the prices of click and Do more miniature PLCs. Great videos and resources at website.

    1. Hi Wisdom,
      Thank you for the comments. Prices vary depending on the models and options. The Click, Do-More and Productivity series of PLC’s are constantly still being developed with new and improved features. This has always been something that I look for in a PLC supplier. Since I do not sell the product, prices will not be shown on the website. I will say that you will not be able to find a more cost-effective automation solution than these PLCs offer.
      This site is done as a way to give back to the industry. It pays for itself through advertising on the site alone.
      Thanks again,
      Garry

  3. Hi Gary,

    thanks for all the work on this site. I am designing a pallet stack for sod. I am using encoders to position the sod on the pallet. i am trying to figure out after i calibrate the arm how to save the position location so i dont have to calibrate every time i turn the stacker on? How do I write to the Micro SD Card and then read the configuration back into the Task?

    1. Hi Harry,
      Thank you for the comments on the website.
      Normally this is done with the memory retentive addresses within the PLC. What hardware (PLC Model) are you planning to use?
      Regards,
      Garry
