CIRCUIT DIAGRAM:

Fig: 2.1. Synchro transmitter and receiver pair


THEORY :A synchro is an electromagnetic transducer commonly used to convert an angular
position of a shaft into an electric signal. The basic synchro is usually called a Synchro
Transmitter. Its construction is similar to that of a 3-Phase alternator. The stator is of laminated
silicon steel and is slotted to accommodate a balanced 3-Phase winding which is usually of
concentric coil type and is Y connected. The rotor is a dumbbell construction and wound with a
concentric coil. An AC voltage is applied to the rotor winding through slip rings.

This voltage causes a flow of magnetizing current in the rotor coil which produces a
sinusoidally time varying time varying flux directed along its axis and distributed nearly
sinusoidally, in the air gap along stator periphery. Because of transformer action, voltages are
induced in each of the stator coils. As the air gap flux is sinusoidally distributed, the flux linking
any stator coil is proportional to the cosine of the angle between rotor and stator coil axis and so
is the voltage induced in each stator coil. The stator coil voltages are of course in time phase
with each other.
The classical synchro system consists of two units.
1. Synchro Transmitter
2. Synchro Receiver
PROCEDURE :
SYNCHRO TRANSMITTER
1. Switch ON the transmitter unit that provides supply to the transmitter rotor.
2. Set the Transmitter rotor angle to 0
3. Note down the voltages across the stator terminals i.e., VS1S2, VS2S3, VS3S1 by connecting
the corresponding terminals to the voltmeter provided.
4. Vary the transmitter rotor angle in steps of 30 , and note down the voltages across the
stator terminals for every step.
5. Plot the characteristics of synchro transmitter by taking angular position on X axis
and voltages of stator on Y axis.
SYNCHRO TRANSMITTER RECEIVER PAIR
1. Connect the stator terminals of the transmitter S1, S2, S3 to the corresponding stator
terminals of the receiver S11, S21, S31 .respectively.
2. Switch ON the supply to the transmitter and rotor.
3. Vary the rotor position of the transmitter (from 0 to 360) in steps and note down the
rotor position of the receiver.
4. If the transmitter rotor position matches with the receiver position, then the system is
synchronized. If there is any difference between both the positions, note down the
difference as error.
5. Plot the characteristics by taking the transmitter rotor angle on X axis and receiver rotor
angle on Y axis.

EFFECT OF P, PI, PID CONTROLLER ON A SECOND ORDER SYSTEM
AIM:

To study the effect of proportional, integral, differential, controllers on a


second order system.

CIRCUIT DIAGRAM:

Closed loop system with PID controller


BLOCK DIAGRAM :-

THEORY :A controller is a device introduced in the system to modify the error signal and to
produce a control signal. The controller modifies the transient response of the system.
9

Proportional Controller (P-Controller): The P-Controller is a device that produce a control signal u(t) which is a proportional
to the input error signal e(t).
U(t)

e(t)

U(t) = Kp e(t)

Kp = Proportional gain Constant

On taking Laplace Transformation of above eq.


U(s) = Kp E(s)

--- 1

U(s) / E(s) = Kp

--- 2

Eq. 1 & 2 gives the output of the P-Controller for input E(s) and transfer function of
the P-Controller respectively.
From Eq. 1, we can conclude that the P-Controller amplifies the error signal by an
amount of Kp. Also the Introduction of the controller on the system increases the
loop gain by an amount of Kp. Increase in loop gain improves the steady state
tracking accuracy and relative stability and also make the system less sensitive to
parameter variations. The draw back in P-Controller is that it leads to a constant
steady state error.
Proportional plus Integral Controller (PI-Controller): The PI-Controller is a device that produces a output signal consisting of two terms
one is proportional to error signal and the other is proportional to the integral of error
signal.
U(t)

[e(t) + e(t) dt]

U(t) = Kp e(t) + (Kp/Ti) e(t) dt

--- 1

Where Kp = Proportional gain Constant


Ti = Integral Time
On taking Laplace Transformation of above eq. with Zero initial conditions
U(s) = Kp E(s) + (Kp/Ti) (E(s)/s)

--- 2

U(s) / E(s) = Kp (1+ 1/Tis)

--- 3

Eq. 2 gives the output of the PI-Controller for input E(s) and eq. 3 is the transfer
function of the PI-Controller respectively.
The advantages of both P-Controller and I-Controller are combined in PI-Controller.
The Proportional action increases the loop gain and makes the system less sensitive to
variations of system parameters. The integral action eliminates or reduces the steady
state error. The integral control action is adjusted by varying the integral time.

10

Proportional plus Integral plus Derivative Controller (PID-Controller): The PID-Controller is a device that produces a output signal consisting of three terms
one is proportional to error signal and the second is proportional to the integral of
error signal and third is proportional to the derivative of the error signal.
U(t)

[e(t) + e(t) dt + e(t) d/dt]

U(t) = Kp e(t) + (Kp/Ti) e(t) dt + KpTd e(t) d/dt

--- 1

Where Kp = Proportional gain Constant


Ti = Integral Time Constant
Td = Derivative Time Constant
On taking Laplace Transformation of above eq. with Zero initial conditions
U(s) = Kp E(s) + (Kp/Ti) (E(s)/s) + KpTd E(s) s

--- 2

U(s) / E(s) = Kp (1+ 1/Tis + Tds)

--- 3

Eq. 2 gives the output of the PID-Controller for input E(s) and eq. 3 is the transfer
function of the PI-Controller respectively.

2. LEAD NETWORK:

THEORY
LAG COMPENSATOR
A compensator having the characteristics of a Lag network is called a lag
compensator. If a sinusoidal signal is applied to a lag network, then in steady state the
output will have a phase lag with respect to input.
Lag compensation results in a large improvement in steady state performance
but results in slower response due to reduced bandwidth. The attenuation due to the
lag compensator will shift the gain cross over frequency to a lower frequency point
where the phase margin is acceptable.
The general form of lag compensator transfer function is given by:
G(S) = (S+T) / (S+P) = (S + 1/T) / S + 1/BT Where, T > 0 and B >1
LEAD COMPENSATOR
14

A compensator having the characteristics of a Lead network is called a Lead


compensator. If a sinusoidal signal is applied to the lead network, then in steady state
the output will have a phase lead with respect to input.
Lead compensation increases the bandwidth, which improves the speed of
response and also reduces, whereas there is a small change in steady state accuracy.
Generally, Lead compensation is provided to make an unstable system as a stable
system.
A Lead compensator is basically a high pass filter so it attenuates high
frequency noise effects. If the pole introduced by the compensator is not cancelled by
a zero in the system, then lead compensation increases the order of the system by one.
The general form of Lead compensator transfer function is given by:
G(S) = (S+T) / (S+P) = (S + 1/T) / S + 1/aT Where, T > 0 and a<1

THEORY :The Magnetic Amplifier sometimes called the Mag Amp. The Magnetic Amplifier
is an electromagnetic device for amplifying electrical signals. It uses a non-linear
property of a certain class of Transformer cores. The Magnetic Amplifier has certain
advantages over other types of amplifiers. These include (1) High efficiency (up to 90
%) (2) Reliability (Long life, Free from maintenance and reduction of spare parts
inventory) (3) Ruggedness (Shock and Vibration resistance, high overload capability
and free from effects of moisture (4) No warm up time.

18

The Magnetic Amplifier has no moving parts and can be hermetically sealed within
a case similar to the conventional dry type transformer.
However, the Magnetic Amplifier has a few disadvantages i.e. It cannot handle
low-level signals, It is not useful at high frequencies, it has a time delay associated
with the magnetic effects and the output waveform is not an exact reproduction of the
input waveform (poor fidelity) etc.

CHARACTERISTICS OF AC SERVOMOTOR
AIM:

21

To study the Speed-Torque and Speed-Back emf characteristics of AC


servomotor.

APPARATUS:
1. Trainer kit
2. Multimeter
3. Patch Cards
CIRCUIT DIAGRAM:

THEORY :1. AC Servomotor :-

22

The motors that are used in automatic control systems are called Servomotors.
When the objective of the system is to control the position of an object then the
system is called Servo Mechanism. The servomotors are used to convert an
electrical signal (control Voltage) applied to them into an angular displacement of
the shaft. Then can either operate in a continuous duty or step duty depending on
construction.
There are different varieties of servomotors available for control system
applications. The suitability of a motor for a particular application depends on the
characteristic of the system, the purpose of the system and its operating
conditions. In general, a servomotor should have the following features.
1. Linear relationship between the speed and electric control signal.
2. Steady state stability.
3. Wide range of speed control.
4. Linearity of mechanical characteristics throughout the entire speed range.
5. Low mechanical and electrical inertial.
6. Fast Response.
Depending on the supply required to run the motor, they are broadly classified as
DC Servomotor and AC Servomotor.
An AC Servomotor is basically a 2-Ph induction motor except for certain special
design features. A 2-Ph servomotor differs in the following 2 ways from a normal
induction motor
i.

The rotor of the servomotor is built with high resistance, so that its X/R
ratio is small which results in linear speed-torque characteristics. But
conventional induction motors will have high value of X/R ratio which
results in high efficiency and non-linear speed-torque characteristics.

ii.

The excitation voltage applied to two stator windings should have a phase
difference

of

90.

2. Construction of AC Servomotor :The AC Servomotor is basically a 2-Ph induction motor with some special design
features. The stator consists of two pole pairs mounted on the inner periphery of

23

the stator, such that their axes are at an angle of 90 in the space. Each pole pair
carries a winding. One winding is called reference winding and the other is called
control winding.

The exciting current in the winding should have a phase

displacement of 90. The supply used to drive the motor is single phase and so a
phase advancing capacitor is connected tone of the phase to produce a phase
difference of 90. The rotor construction is usually squirrel cage or drag cup type.
The squirrel cage rotor is made of laminations. The rotor bars are placed on the
slots and short circuited at both ends by end rings. The diameter of the rotor is
kept small in order to reduce inertia and to obtain good accelerating
characteristics.
The drag cup construction is employed for very low inertia applications. In this
type of construction the rotor will be in the form of hallow cylinder made of
aluminium. The aluminium cylinder itself acts as short circuited rotor conductors.
The speed-Torque curves of AC Servomotor are non-linear except in the low
speed region. In order to drive a transfer function for the motor, some linearizing
approximations are necessary. A servomotor operates at high speeds, therefore the
linear portions of speed-torque curves can be extended out of the high speed
region by use of dashed lines. But even with this approximation, the resultant
curves are still not parallel to each other. This means that for constant speeds,
except near Zero speed, the torque does not vary linearly with respect to input
voltage.
3. Transfer Function of AC Servomotor :Let

Tm = Torque developed by Servomotor


q = angular displacement by servomotor
= d /dt = Angular velocity
Tl = Torque required by load
J moment of inertia of load and rotor
B= Viscous frictional co-efficient of load and rotor.
K1 = slope of control phase voltage Vs torque characteristics
K2 = slope of speed torque characteristics
Torque developed by motor (Tm) = K1ec - K2 d /dt
Load Torque = J (d2/dt2) + B (d/dt)

At equilibrium, the motor torque is equal to load torque (Tm = Tl)

24

J (d2/dt2) + B (d/dt) = K1ec - K2 d /dt


On taking laplace transform of above eq. with zero initial conditions
J s2 (s) + Bs (s) = K1Ec (s) K2S (s)
==>

(Js2 +Bs+K2s) (s) = K1Ec(s)


(s) / Ec(s)

= K1 / (Js2 +Bs+K2s)
= [K1 / (B+K2)] / [s (J/(B+K2))s +1]
= Km / (Tms + 1)

Where Km = K1 / (B+K2) = Motor gain constant


Tm = J/(B+K2) = Motor time constant
Hence the transfer function of AC Servomotor has derived.
PROCEDURE:
1. Study all the controls carefully on the front panel.
2. keep the switch SW3 in upward position, indicating that the armature circuit
of D.C. machine is not connected to auxiliary power supply 12V dc. Switch
SW2 should be in OFF position.
3. Ensure P1 and P2 are in fully anticlockwise position.
4. Now, switch on SW1 and also switch on SW2 . You can observe that AC
servomotor will start rotating and the speed will be indicated by the meter M1
on the front panel.
5. With SW3 in OFF condition, vary the speed of the A.C. servomotor by
moving P1 in clockwise direction and note the e.m.f. generated by the D.C.
machine. Enter the results in tabular column.
6. Now switch SW3 in OFF condition, switch ON SW2 and keep the pot P1 in
minimum position. You can observe that the A.C. servomotor starts moving
with speed being indicated by the RPM indicator. You can measure the
reference winding

voltage (about 100v A.C.) and control winding voltage

(which is variable byP1). Note the speed of A.C. servomotor. Now switch on
SW3 and start loading A.C. servomotor by controlling pot P2 in a slow
fashion. Note down corresponding values on Ia and N.
7. Now you may set control winding voltage to a new value of 30volts after
switching OFF SW3. Again repeat the process as indicated in step No. 6
8. Plot the speed torque characteristics for various values of control winding
voltages.

SPEED TORQUE CHARACTERISTICS OF DC SERVO MOTOR

27

AIM: To plot speed torque characteristics of a DC Servomotor.


APPARATUS:
Multimeter-(0-200)v
DC servomotor kit
CIRCUIT DIAGRAM:

THEORY :The types of DC Servo Motors are (i) Series Motor (ii) Shunt Motor (iii) Permanent
Magnet Motor. A DC Servo Motor can be controlled by varying either the field
current or the armature current. DC Servo Motors offers higher efficiency than that of
AC Servo Motors of same size, but radio interference is a problem in some
applications.
Most of the DC Servo Motors used in low power applications are of the PM type.
The ease of controllable speed along with the linear torque-speed characteristics
makes the DC Servo Motor ideal for servo mechanism applications. The torquespeed curve is quite similar to that of the AC Servo Motor. These motors are
available in 6, 12 and 24 V models making them applicable to solid-state circuitry.
By comparison, the DC Servo Motor has some advantages over AC Servo Motor. The
DC Servo Motor inertia is greater than that of the AC Servo motor. This greater
inertia is due to the wound armature and commutator, which produces a heavier rotor.
The DC Servo Motor does not require any standby power whereas the AC Servo
Motor continuously draws power for its main (reference) winding.

28

Such DC Servo Motors are popular in compact systems such as pneumatic


control and robotics systems and in automatic control machines. DC Servo Motors in
some modern servomechanism may be one of the brush less types, which lend
themselves to easy computer control Alone the same lines, the stepping motor has
become a valuable type to be used as a servo motor.
PROCEDURE:
1. Adjust spring balance so that there is minimum load on the servomotor. Note
that you have to pull the knob K1 in the upward direction to apply load on the
servo motor. You may make use of holes to apply a fixed load on the system
by using a locking screw.
2. Ensure the pot P1(speed control) is in Max. anticlockwise position. Switch ON
the supply and slightly press the control knob in anticlockwise direction so
that soft start relay is turned on and armature voltage is applied to the armature
from zero onwards.
3. Connect a digital or analog multimeter across the terminals marked armature
to measure armature voltage in the range 0-35 volts.
4. Adjust P1 so that Va =10 volts and P2 so that Vf = 20volts.
5. Note down T1,T2 and speed and enter the results in tabular colulmn.
6. Keeping Va = 10 volts, adjust T1 upto 500gm. In suitable steps to get a set of
readings.
7. Now for Va =15,20,25 volts etc repeat step no. 6

PROGRAMMABLE LOGIC CONTROLLER

43

AIM: To verify truth tables of logic gates.


APPARATUS:
1. PLC Kit
2. Patch cards
3. PLC Softwrae
THEORY: A programmable controller, also known as programmable logic controller (PLC),
is a device designed to perform sequential logic control in which one event follows another in
a prescribed way to complete a task. An industrial machine may contain pushbuttons, limit
switches, timers, interlocks, etc. In the past, these devices had to be hard-wired to perform a
specific function, and they could not easily be modified to perform a different task. With a
programmable controller, however, all that is required is to change the controller's program
and possibly some of the connections to the inputs and/or output. Today, programmable
controllers are used for the control and operation of almost any machine, process, or
production line. The continued advancement of PLC technology and the partnership of PLCs
with computers and other digital devices are providing industry with sophisticated control
systems and advanced decision making processes.
A programmable controller is composed of three components as illustrated in Figure
1.1. These three components are the input/output (I/0) interface system, the central processing
unit (CPU), and a programming device.
The input/output system forms the interface by which field devices are connected to the
controller. The main purpose of the interface is to condition the various signals received from
or sent to external field devices. Incoming signals from sensors such as pushbuttons, limit
switches, analog sensors, motor starters, etc. are wired to terminals of the input interfaces.
Devices that will be controlled, like motor starters, solenoid valves, pilot lights, and position
valves, are connected to the terminals of the output interfaces.
The CPU section of a PLC has three components: The memory system, the processor,
and the system power supply. The memory system stores the program usually in the form of a
ladder diagram. The processor executes the control program stored in the memory system.
The system power supply provides all the necessary voltages required for the proper operation
of the various CPU sections.
The programming device allows the user to enter, change, or monitor a PLC program.
The programming device may be a CRT terminal, a hand-held unit with a display or a
personal computer. Four major languages can be used in programming the modern PLC.
These languages may use Boolean algebra equations, mnemonic commands, logic diagrams
and ladder diagrams. Some PLCs also permit BASIC language statements or allow the
programmer to use a special high-level control language. Ladder diagram logic, which is the
same as that for relay control circuits, is a popular choice for programming most PLCs.

44

During the operation, the CPU reads or accepts the input data or status of the field
devices via the input interfaces, executes the control program stored in the memory system,
and writes or updates the output devices via the output interfaces.

This process of

sequentially reading the inputs, executing the program in memory, and updating the outputs is
known as scanning.
Allen-Bradley's programmable controllers are efficient and effective in providing
industrial control. Allen-Bradley was one of the first companies to manufacture PLCs for
enhancing plant productivity. Allen- Bradley's PLC family of programmable controllers, are
among the most advanced and versatile PLCs worldwide. In the Industrial Control Lab we
have SLC-5/02 in the benches and PLC-5 and SLC-500 on the wall.
Ladder Diagrams
The logic implemented in PLCs is based on the three basic logic functions (AND,
OR, NOT). These functions are used either singly or in combinations to form instructions that
will determine if a device is to be switched ON or OFF. The most widely used languages for
implementing ON/OFF control and sequencing are ladder diagrams. It is easy to understand,
and most plant or industrial electricians are accustomed to working with elementary relay
diagrams. Since this type of instruction set is composed of contact symbols, it is also referred
to as contact symbology. The ladder circuit connections in the PLC are implemented via
software instructions. All the logical wiring can be thought of as being inside the CPU
(softwired as opposed to hardwired).
The complete ladder diagram can be thought of as being formed by individual
circuits, each circuit having one output. Each of these circuits is known as a rung. Therefore,
a rung is the contact symbology required to control an output in the PLC. A complete PLC
ladder diagram program then consists of several rungs, each controlling an output interface
which is connected to an output field device as shown in Figure 1.5.

Each rung is a

combination of input conditions (symbols) connected from left to right between two vertical
lines, with the symbol that represents the output at the far right. The symbols that represent
the inputs are connected in series, parallel or some combination to obtain the desired logic;
these input symbols represent the input devices that are connected to the PLC's input
interfaces. When activated, these devices either allow current to follow through the circuit or
cause a break in current flow, thereby switching a device ON or OFF. The input symbols on a
ladder rung can represent signals generated from connected input devices, connected output
devices, or from outputs internal to the controller.
In general, PLC architecture is modular and flexible, allowing hardware and software
elements to expand as the application requirements change. A PLC eliminates hardwired
control in favor of programmable control. Once installed, the control plan can be manually or

45

automatically altered to meet the day-to-day control requirements without changing the field
wiring.
Programming with RSLogix 500 Software
Creating a directory on your network drive
To work correctly, the software needs a directory for your RSLogix programs on your f drive.
Using either Windows Explorer or the My Computer icon on your desktop, create the
directory f:\RSLogix on your network drive.
Running RSLogix 500 and starting a new project
Double-click on the RSLogix 500 icon on the Windows desktop to start the software.
With a new project, before you can edit a ladder program, you must configure the controller
to reflect the actual hardware. The configuration procedure is outlined in section 2.2. Save
this configuration in your F:\RSLogix directory with a file name say PLC500CONFIG.RSS.
If you followed the configuration procedure the processor and I/O configuration has been
completed, for your next project you can skip section 2.2 and copy the PLC500CONFIG file
under a new file name, which you want to assign to your project.
Processor and Input/Output Configurations
The PLCs in S-340 have a 10-slot backplane with the following modules:

You can go through the configuration process as follow:


Double-click on the RSLogix 500 icon on the Windows desktop to start the software. To
create a new project either click on the blank page icon or select New... from the File
menu. A dialog box requesting processor information should appear, as shown

46

Select the 1747-L524 5/02 CPU for the processor type and enter your bench number for the
processor name.
You should now see a project tree window and a window to enter your ladder logic.

47

Next, the chassis (the rack in which the modules are installed) and the individual modules
must be defined. Double-click on the IO Configuration icon in the project tree window to
access the I/O Configuration dialog box. In the Rack 1 pull-down menu select 1746-A10 10Slot Rack chassis. In slot 0 under Part # and Description you should see the 1747-L524 5/02
CPU 4K Mem. Next, the I/O modules are defined. To do this, highlight slot 1 and doubleclick on the 1746-IA16 input module. Place the same input module in slot 2. Use slot 3 and 4
to configure the 1746-OA16 output modules. Finally place 1746-NIO4V analog module in
slot 8.
A completed I/O Configuration dialog box is shown below.

Click on the X in the upper right corner to close the configuration dialog box.
You should now save the file by selecting Save As from the File menu. Save with a file
name say PLC500CONFIG. We will use this file as a starting point (the base project file) for

48

the remaining projects. For example, to start a new project you can copy the PLC500CONFIG
file under a file name, which you want to assign to your project say example Lab1a.
2.3 Editing Ladder Logic
With RSLogix 500 Window in the OFFLINE mode, select the PLC500CONFIG file (i.e., the
base project file that you configured in section 2.2) and save it under a new name, for
example, Lab1a. You should see icons for the instructions you need for editing a program at
the top of the RSLogix 500 programming window. A detailed description of the instruction
appears in a balloon and on the status bar when you move the cursor over one of the
instructions. Click on the tabs below the icons if you dont see an instruction you need. Use
the following Step-by-step guide to edit the ladder diagram of Example 1 as shown in Figure
1.5.
1. Select the number of the first rung to begin entering instructions. The rung number
should now be highlighted in red.
2. Click on the examine if closed (XIC) icon. An XIC instruction should now be on the rung.
3. Enter the instructions address. There are two ways to enter the instruction address:
a. Click on the question mark and type in the address I: 1/0.
b. Click on the I1-Input under project tree and drag the desired address (I: 1/0) to the
instruction.
You may add a symbolic address. A symbol, once it has been associated with an address, can
be used for other instructions referencing its address. To add symbols, click on the instruction
and with address highlighted type over the address SP0 as the symbol for this instruction.
You may also add a description for the instruction. To add a description, right click on the
instruction and select Edit Description.

A dialog box then appears for entering the

description. You may type START for the description of this instruction.
4. Click on the examine if open (XIO) icon. An XIO instruction should appear on the rung
next the XIC instruction. Follow step 3 for entering the address (I: 1/1), symbol (LS0), and
description Limit Switch.
5. Click on the output enable (OTE) icon. An OTE instruction should appear at the end of the
rung. For the addresses enter O: 3/0 and for the symbol type PL1.
6. Click on the branch icon. A branch appears with one end highlighted. Drag each end of the
branch to its proper location. A green box appears at each possible location when you drag the
branch ends.

49

7. Select the bottom left corner of the branch and click on the XIC icon. An XIC instruction is
added to the branch. For its address you can type the symbolic address PL1 defined in step 5.
8. Select and double click on the End rung to insert a new rung. Add an examine if closed
(XIC) instruction and type PL1 for its address. Next add the output enable (OTE) instruction.
B3/1 (you may use B3 Binary icon under project tree and drug the desired address to the
instruction).

Type INT_OTE_1 for the symbolic address, and Internal output for the

description.
9. Repeat step 8 to add an XIO and an OTE instructions for the last rung.
After you have placed all the instructions, make certain they are all addressed. As a shortcut,
you can drag addresses from one instruction to any other.
Verify the program logic
Click on the file verify or project verify icon, or select them from Edit menu, to verify the
program logic. If there are any logic errors in your program, a window appears below the
project tree and ladder logic windows. Correct any errors before proceeding on with the
lab.2.4
Downloading Program to SLC-500
The Upload/Download Program, transfer programs between the computer and the SLC-500.
By performing a download operation, you will be able to monitor your program when you
enter the Online Programming mode. Turn on the processor Main Power and download the
program of Example 1. The system displays a message stating:
Downloading Program

Are you sure you want to proceed with Download?


If this is the correct files to download press Yes. If the processor was in the Run or Test mode
before you began downloading, the system asks if you want to switch the processor back to
the PROG mode? Press yes to switch to the program mode. During the download procedure,
the system displays a status screen showing the ladder and data table files being downloaded
to the processor. After the program is downloaded, you can switch back to the desired mode.
Testing mode
Select the

test mode. The system displays a message stating, Are you sure you want to

change processor mode to Test? Press Yes to test the program.


In the test mode the ladder diagram executes, but outputs are not enabled.

50

To test the program press the start pushbutton SP0 the input address is forced, causing the
output for that rung to be true and they will appear in reverse video. Control contact across
pushbutton closes, sealing in the output coil PL1. On the second rung, since the condition is
true, the NO contact and its output will appear in reverse video, and the internal bit B3/1 is
turned on. On the third rung, the condition for an examine OFF is not true and the output for
the rung is not energized and will not appear in reverse video.
Close the toggle switch LS0. On the first rung, the NC contact LS0 opens, and the output coil
PL1 is turned off. On the second rung, the condition for an examine ON is not true and the
output for the rung is de-energized and will not appear in the reverse video. On third rung,
since the condition is true, the NC contact and its output will appear in reverse video, and the
internal bit B3/2 is turned on.

Running mode
Select the running mode. In the running mode the output is enabled, performing the Remote
Run intended operations. Press the start pushbutton and later close the toggle switch and
observe the events made during test procedure.
Saving a Project to a File
The project created in this exercise only exists in the computer memory. To save it to a file on
the hard disk of the computer, choose the Save or Save As command in the File menu.
This opens the Save Program As... dialog box. This box prompts you to type a project
filename (the processor name previously entered upon selection of the processor type is
suggested). Keep the processor name the same as the project filename (EXERC_1).
Make the following observations:
The path leading to the location where project files are to be stored is indicated at
the top of the dialog box;
The extension of project filenames is .RSS;
You can include a revision note and a version number with the project file.
Click the Save button in the dialog box. This will cause project EXERC_1 to be saved
in a file named EXERC_1.RSS.
Choose the Close command in the File menu to close project file EXERC_1.RSS. This will
cause project EXERC_1 to be removed from the computer memory and the RSLogix 500
window.
Close RSLogix 500. Turn off the computer.
AND Gate:
The function of an AND gate is simulated in the electric circuit displayed in Figure
below.

51

Notice that the lamp will be on only when both switches are closed.
a two-input AND logic gate symbol, its Boolean expression, and its truth table is
shown in figure below

. In the truth table, you can see that there is only one set of inputs that produces a
logic high output.
From the ladder logic diagram shown below, it performs the function of a two-input
AND gate. When normally open inputs I:0/0 and I:0/1 are closed, output O:0/0 is energized.

OR Gates:
The function of an OR gate is simulated in the electric circuit displayed in Figure
below.

52

Notice that the lamp will be ON when one or both of the switches are closed. Figure
below displays a two-input OR logic gate symbol, its Boolean expression, and its truth table.

The truth table shows a logic high output for all combinations of inputs except where
both A and B are low. When either input A, B, or both are on, the output is on.
Figure below displays a ladder logic diagram that performs the function of a twoinput OR gate. When either normally open (NO) inputs I:0/0, I:0/1, or both are closed, output
O:0/0 is energized.

NAND Gate:
The function of a NAND gate is simulated in the electric circuit displayed in Figure
below.

53

Notice that the lamp will be off when both switches are closed. The NAND gate takes
its name from NOT and AND. Its outputs are the inverse of the AND gate. Figure below
displays a two-input NAND logic gate symbol, its Boolean expression, and its truth table.

Notice that the NAND gate can be built by connecting an AND gate in series with a
NOT gate. Using the De-Morgan theorem, sometimes also called the Bubble method, you can
convert a NAND gate to an OR gate with inverted inputs where (A B) = A + B.
Figure below displays that there are two different types of ladder logic diagrams that
perform the NAND function.

Both normally closed inputs I:0/0 and I:0/1 must be energized (opened) to turn off
the output O:0/0.
When both normally open inputs I:0/2 and I:0/3 are energized (closed), the relay
coil B3:0/0 is energized. Then the normally closed contact B3:0/0 is opened to turn off output
O:0/1.
NOR Gate:
The function of a NOR logic gate is simulated in the electric circuit displayed in
Figure below.

54

Notice that the lamp will be ON when both switches are open. The NOR gate takes its
name from NOT and OR. Its outputs are the inverse of the OR gate.
Figure below displays a two-input NOR logic gate symbol, its Boolean expression,
and its truth table. Notice the NOR gate can be built by connecting an OR gate in series with a
NOT gate. Using the De-Morgan theorem, you can convert a NOR gate to an AND gate with
inverted inputs where (A + B) = A B.

Figure below displays that there are two different types of ladder logic diagrams that
perform the NOR gate function.

Both normally closed inputs I:0/0 and I:0/1 must be deenergized (remain closed) to
turn on the output O:0/0

55

When both normally open inputs I:0/2 and I:0/3 are de-energized, the relay coil
B3:0/0 is de-energized. Then the normally closed contact B3:0/0 remains closed to turn on
output O: 0/1.
Result: All the truth tables of the logic gates have been verified using programmable logic
controller.
