How Are Field Devices Wired to PLCs? – Part 2

As the devices in your home need power to operate, so do the modules within your control system. In this video, we talk about the different ways to find the information needed in order to properly power your modules.   This detail explains that the power wiring may differ based on the field devices that you are wiring as well such as two and four wire transmitters.   We discuss the different front connectors that are used for different module types and which terminals to use for your power wiring based on specific types of field devices and the information…

How Are Field Devices Wired to PLCs? – Part 1

Have you ever wondered how the digital and analog signals, coming from devices such as valves or sensors, are connected to the PLC’s input and output modules? In this video, using a practical example, you’re going to learn exactly how these field devices are wired and connected to the PLC’s input and output modules.  

Encoder Position Feedback

This video explains how to read the Position feedback from the Encoder by reading A Phase feedback in the PLC. We have to use High speed counter to read the encoder feedback pulses.  

Servo Basic Concepts

A practical overview of AC servo systems and their implementation is presented by Yaskawa. Aimed at the technical person who is new to the world of servos, this video 1) defines what a servo is and examines its components, 2) explores how a servo works within a motion control system, 3) the concept of a servo “axis”, 4) system power up, 5) directional movement, 6) over-travel limit switches 7) distance and position, 8) homing, 9) actuator types.  

Use Arduino to Switch Power On and Off!

Mike picked up a $10 SainSmart 8 Channel DC 5V Relay Module, hooked it up to an Arduino micro controller (a Raspberry Pi should work, too!) and the next thing you know he’s remotely controlling 8 electrical devices… it’s like building an 8 channel remote, each relay on the board can handle some serious juice, up to 10A 230V AC, 30V 10A DC. It’s super easy to set up. Learn how in the video!  

Arduino Water Control System

This video shows a water control system I designed and built to control multiple water tanks, solenoids, sensors, and one water pump. I used the Arduino UNO to control the conditions needed for the application and to manage IO.
