Programmable logic controller PLC book. The relay control systems they were used to employed ladder diagrams, so named because the relay circuits, drawn between a hot and neutral common, resembled the rungs of a ladder.

A ladder diagram is a schematic representation of a relay control circuit. Ladder diagrams gained popularity in the early days of automation because of their simplicity and intuitive nature. Over time other programming methods such as instruction list, flow chart, and structured text have been developed; however, ladder logic is still a popular choice because of its graphical and intuitive nature.

Ladder logic to control a transfer bar looks very much like a relay ladder diagram but instead of coils and contacts connected by wires mounted on a backplate they are bits in a computer. By , Allen-Bradley and others had entered the market in direct competition with Modicon.

Innovation became essential to support market share. Not only were PLCs rapidly growing faster and more powerful, but programming and documentation tools were also evolving quickly.

Early PLCs did not offer a method of program documentation. They stuck a handle on it and called it portable.

Programming terminals were developed that would allow programmers to enter logic programs remotely. The finished program could then be copied onto a cassette tape to be downloaded to the PLC.

Printouts could also be generated, eliminating the need for time-consuming hand drawings on the drafting board.

These machines were slow by today's standards but much faster than hand drawing. By the end of the decade, most electrical designers were weaned off of their drafting boards and were working exclusively on desktop computers. Lettering guides and circle templates had been relegated to the bottom drawer.

Portable computers were making their way onto the shop floor as well. Computers could now interface directly with PLCs and software improvements made monitoring machine motions much easier.

See a Problem?

The PLC program had become the best diagnostic tool available for troubleshooting and was viewed by many as a window into the machine. Other engineering firms developed their own versions of this device, and it eventually came to be known in non-proprietary terms as a PLC, or Programmable Logic Controller.

The purpose of a PLC was to directly replace electromechanical relays as logic elements, substituting instead a solid-state digital computer with a stored program, able to emulate the interconnection of many relays to perform certain logical tasks. In an effort to make PLCs easy to program, their programming language was designed to resemble ladder logic diagrams.

Programmable Logic Controllers And Industrial Automation An Introduction

Thus, an industrial electrician or electrical engineer accustomed to reading ladder logic schematics would feel comfortable programming a PLC to perform the same control functions. PLCs are industrial computers, and as such their input and output signals are typically volts AC, just like the electromechanical control relays they were designed to replace.

Although some PLCs have the ability to input and output low-level DC voltage signals of the magnitude used in logic gate circuits, this is the exception and not the rule. The following illustration shows a simple PLC, as it might appear from a front view.

The actual logic of the control system is established inside the PLC by means of a computer program.

This program dictates which output gets energized under which input conditions. Although the program itself appears to be a ladder logic diagram, with switch and relay symbols, there are no actual switch contacts or relay coils operating inside the PLC to create the logical relationships between input and output.It lists the most important areas to consider when choosing a system, as well as provides space for recording determinations of your system needs.
