About this eBook

PREFACE I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving. Oliver Wendell Holmes Control engineering has evolved overtime. In the past humans were the main methods for controlling a system. More recently electricity has been used for control and early electrical control was based on relays. The development of low cost computer has brought the most recent revolution, the Programmable Logic Controller PLC . The advent of the PLC began in the 1970s, and has become the most common choice for manufacturing controls. Since the development of first logic controllers, the capabilities of programmable logic controllers have grown by leaps and bounds. Likewise, the applications of PLCs have grown with them. In fact, in today s increasingly computer controlled environment, it is almost impossible to find a technical industry that does not use programmable controllers in one form or another. This book, provides a comprehensive theoretical, yet practical, look at all aspects of PLCs and their associated devices and systems. After finishing the book, the student will most likely be employed in a position designing, programming and maintaining systems using PLCs of some brand or model, or even more likely, many machines with many different brands and models of PLC. The authors desire that this text not only be used to learn programmable logic controllers, but also that this text will become part of the student s personal technical reference library. The organized material that resulted in this book is our attempt at providing a reasonable degree of balance between rigor, clarity of presentation and at the same time keeping the length of book at manageable level. The principal objective of the book is to provide an introduction to various PLC concepts and to develop a foundation that can be used as basis for research and further study in this field.
Organization of this Book Chapter 1 is on PLC introduction highlighting evolution of PLCs, Advantages of PLC, PLC components, PLC Programming techniques, PLC applications and manufacturers. Chapter 2 is on Fundamental concepts of Digital electronics incorporating number systems, conversions, Logic gates and Boolean Algebra. Chapter 3 is on Ladder Logic concepts incorporating Basic Control system components and their symbols, Ladder logic input, output and programming concepts,Basic and Advanced Ladder Logic Functions. Relay logic and Boolean logic concepts. Chapter 4 is on File structure and Addressing Formats, highlighting fundamental concepts of SLC 500 BASED SYSTEM, Addressing formats and elements of output and Input, Timer data, Bit data, Counter data and various other associated files. Chapter 5 is on PLC Project development, including features of RS Logix 500 and RS Linx software, Various installation steps, Micrologix, SLC 5 03 driver configurations, Various phases in developing a New Project, followed by LADSIM based simulation. ix
x Chapters 6 and 7 are on Instruction set highlighting operation and significance of various Bit, Timer, Counter, Comparison and sequencing Instructions. Chapter 8 is on PLC Applications highlighting the use of RS Logix software to program and develop some of PLC applications like Liquid level control, Process control, Drink dispenser. Chapter 9 is PLC SCADA interface with emphasis on SCADA software Installation, SCADA Project Development, Basics of PLC interfacing with SCADA working with developed projects. Chapter 10 is on SCADA animations highlighting various SCADA animations like Visibility animation, text animation, Numeric display, Numeric input and Project creation using memory tags. Chapter 11 is on Alarming and Data logging highlighting the Use of Alarm, Alarm configurations Procedure for Alarm set up, Alarm start up and operation and Concept of Alarm summary and Data logging.
