44 - NEW! The Complete PLCLearn Series, RSLogix500 for Micrologix Controllers - Volume I
This is Vol. #1 of the two-volume set of hands-on lab project manuals for learning how to program and troubleshoot SLC500 and Micrologix Controllers. Everything that you learn with these projects and video lectures will support the RSLogix/Studio5000 learning path when you begin that platform.
247 pages of full color step by step lab projects. Manual only...video lectures on YouTube , cables, hardware and software are not purchased on this site.
Click below to take a quick peek at the lectures available on our YouTube channel that support the projects in this set of manuals...
This manual can be used with SLC500 and all Micrologix controllers; 1000/1100/1200/1400/1500...the 1000 has a different one shot instruction than the others...
In addition to lab projects this manual includes many technical discussions that support the understanding of industrial automation.
The five original instructions; XIC, XIO, OTE, OTL and OTU are well exercised throughout the manual. Timer and counter datatypes are integrated into practical applications using the TON, TOF, RTO, CTU, CTD and RES instructions. The practical programming challenges include the use of all of the comparison instructions; GRT, LES, GEQ, LEQ, EQU, NEQ, MEQ and LIM.
The basic math instructions; ADD, SUB, MUL and DIV are covered in more than one lab project as well as some of the practical programming challenges.
Data movement is demonstrated with the MOV and MVM instruction along with an in depth discussion of Mask values and how to use them.
Bit shifting with the BSR and BSL instructions are given adequate coverage.
A comprehensive section, with lab projects, on Boolean Algebra.
More than 100 pages of evolving programming strategies provide a good background in the most common programming techniques. Virtual processes are used to demonstrate many different styles of programming.
Although you can execute some of these projects with other Micrologix controllers, the optimum use of this manual will be the result of using a Micrologix 1400. The 1766-L32BXB or BXBA is the recommended controller.
It is recommended that you build your hardware learning station using our Digital Field Device Simulator. An image of the units that we use in live classroom delivery is shown. Kits can be purchased on this site; pre-built units are special order only. Request a quote. The kit is just for the grey enclosure with switches and lights. Our live classroom station shown below has a 1766-L32BXB controller that you can purchase on EBay.
This digital field device simulator has six enhanced 4 state inputs and six LED outputs behind the pushbuttons. The processor is a 1766-L32BXB with the PTO/PWM outputs landed on orange terminals for external usage. One of the high speed counters is connected to the white terminals for use with devices such as encoders. Two additional inputs and outputs are extended to the blue and green, respectively, terminals for external input and output field devices.
