how to configure the PLC?
all together i can say i know hw to build up the logic, but dont know how to implement it..
i request you to help me in any way possible.

PLC basic configuration

I am assuming you are talking about RSLOGIX 500. This software serves The SLC 500 family, as well as micrologix PLC's, the RSLOGIX 5 is used for PLC 5 systems. It is almost Identical to RSLOGIX 500.
The primary PLC configuration takes place in the I/O configuration. There are also channel configuratios, but those usually don't need to be used in a PLC that doesn't need to communicate with other PLC's or computers. The micrologix generally doesn't need much other than for you to select the processor. For an SLC 500, you will need to configure what cards are in which slots. If you don't, and load the Program to the processor, the processor will fault. Double click the I/O configuration to open the window. If you are connected to the PLC, you can choose read I/O config. If not select the card from the list, and drag it to the appropriate slot. Not sure what the model of module card you have, power down the PLC, remove the card and look on the side. The information may also be found inside the door.

If you can tell me which processor you have, I can tell you how to connect to it.

I have a decent amount of experience with the SLC 500, Micrologix, and the PLC 5. If you have any questions about these, I am happy to help

SIEMENS OR AB

HI
I DIDN'T WORK BY AB BUT SIEMENS.
IT IS EASY TO LEARN AND USE SIEMENS PLC.
ALSO YOU CAN LEARN FROM SIEMENS WEBSITE AND USEFUL BOOKS ARE PUBLISHED.

siemens or AB

its better to start with AB ... its more user friendly .... may siemens has more complicated features but it is not as easy as AB both to program n to trouble shoot n understand ...

ANY MANUALS OR WEBSITE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT LADDER LOGIC

ANY MANUALS OR WEBSITE TO LEAR MORE ABOUT LADDER LOGIC? IM FOCUSING TO LEARN MORE ABOUT AB PLC. PLEASE HELP ME.

THANKS.
BRENTIZE@YAHOO.COM

An online course about automation

On this website are manuals about PLC programming with Step7. You can learn online.

All information of AB and seimans

Pleas

ACTUALLY I ALSO RECOMMEND

ACTUALLY I ALSO RECOMMEND YOU TO USE AB BECAUSE SIMENS PLC ARE MORE COMPLICATED TO USE BUT IT HAS WIDE RAGE OF FEATURE AND COMMUNICATION IS ALSO EASY IN THIS WITH PROFIBUS.

hello Calvin How are you

Allen Bradley Programming SW is easy so you can us only ab plc

THE AB RSLOGIX500 IS

THE AB RSLOGIX500 IS 'BASICALLY' ALL LADDER LOGIC AND IS A GOOD STARTING POINT FOR BEGINNERS WHILE THE AB RSLOGIX5000 UTILISES FUNCTION BLOCK DIAGRAMS AS WELL AS LADDER LOGIC BUILT INTO SUBROUTINES....START OFF WITH THE 500 SERIES UNTIL YOU GET MORE COMFORTABLE.

about how to connect the abplc500 with masterdrive

please give me a example,I want to konw how to make masterdrive commucation with ABPLC500,I need your help.Tkanks!

TRY WITH PROFIBUS PROTOCOL

TRY WITH PROFIBUS PROTOCOL IT MAY USEFULL.
OR GO FOR MODBUS (IT HAS LIMITED FEATURES)

RSLOGIX

Hi,
1st: you must know that Rslogix is not a PLC. Rslogix is a software required to program a Allen Bradley PLC.
The difference is: RSLOGIX500 is to program small PLCs like Microllogix1100,SLC500, while RSLOGIX 5000 is to program the smallest PLCs.I advice you to start with SLC500, but remember that the secret to program well any PLC you must undesrtand the structure of that PLC,otherwise it will becomes quite difficult.

micrologix1500

Hi! I need help with my micrologix 1500.
How can I delete the program inside and replace it with my new program?Because when I upload the new program, still the old program will show up.
thank you.

I need your advice about which type of PLC to use

Calvin,

I need advice for a specific one that you can recommend.
This is the experiment scenario: There will be a special battery charger that
charges only
Lithium ion batteries (I have that already). There will be two banks or sets
of
batteries. Only one bank can be charged at a time, once the first bank is
fully
charged, then the 'controller' or 'PLC' will switch the battery charger to the
second
bank to charge that one as well. The system that I'm experimenting will drain
each bank one at a time. I want the controller to determined when a bank is
drained then it will switch the battery charger to the second battery bank.
This will happen back and forth. While one is discharged the other is being
charged. The batteries will be 24V DC.
