## Counters Example I

Basic example of Counter contact with IECuino Here, we will see another example, but this time it is going to be about Counters. It means that this is Counters Example I.  As the previous post, we are going to explain what Counter means, in case you forgot its function. As the name suggests, this contact count …

## Timers Example I

Basic example of Timer Contact with IECuino In this post, we are going to see a super basic example of Timers, which is the Timers Example I of this blog, but before we start to explain it…can you differentiate Counters and Timers? We are going to explain to you what Timer means so easily.As the …

Filling and emptying a tank Ladder Logic Basic Example II Ladder Logic Basic Example I In this another Ladder Logic basic example (filling and emptying a tank), we must follow conditions for this Ladder Logic Interlocking. We will go over the process step by step, so you do not miss anything. Firstly, let’s take a …

## PLC Wiring & Ladder Logic

It is a bit complicated to understand the PLC Wiring, Ladder Diagram symbol combinations and their logic states when one starts with PLCs and Ladder Logic. Therefore, we will be explaining in detail how to go about it. For ease of understanding, here you have an illustration: Referring to the image above, there are 3 …

Ladder Logic Basic Example In this post, you are going to see a Ladder Logic Interlocking example. In this way, you can get to know the applications of this programming language. This example will consist of making an interlocking (self-retention) of a single-phase motor. To make it easier, we will go over everything step by …

## Ladder Logic Components in IECuino

In other posts, we have already briefly explained the Components of Ladder Logic, but in this post, we are going to go into detail about these Ladder Logic Components in IECuino. Specially, we will look at five components, which are the principal ones: Inputs Rung Comments Outputs Rails Tag Names Rungs 1. Inputs The Ladder …

In the top 5 most popular PLC programming languages, we found Ladder Logic. Before developing PLCs, manufacturing plants used relay-based circuitry to activate various loads depending on the Relay’s interconnection. The problem was that relays were expensive, needed continuous maintenance, and were difficult to modify. It was necessary to maintain the previous system’s similarities; hence, …

## PLC Scan Cycle with LL (II)

How Ladder Logic instructions work with the PLC scan cycle In this second part of the post “PLC scan cycle with LL”, we are going to talk about the Output Latch and the Normally Closed Contact. We recommend that you have read the first part of this post. Output Latch As we have explained previously, …

## PLC Scan Cycle with LL (I)

How Ladder Logic instructions work with the PLC scan cycle The first part of the post about the PLC scan cycle with Ladder Logic will consist of how the contacts affect to the PLC scan cycle. In Ladder Logic, each symbol represents an instruction and do you know how they work with the PLC scan …

## The Binary Code applied to Ladder Logic (II)

Binary Code in Ladder Logic Programming In this second part of the Binary Code applied to Ladder Logic, we are going to explain other examples of Binary Code applied to Ladder Logic. The OR function examines multiple PLC inputs and has one resulting output. If we translate an OR function into a Ladder Diagram, we …
