    PLC selection and design points Sep 21, 2023
    Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is a device designed specifically for digital operations in industrial environments. It uses programmable memory to receive and store user instructions, which are then used to control various types of machines and processes. Due to its high reliability, high flexibility, and low power consumption, PLC has been widely used in the field of modern industrial automation. In this article, we will discuss the selection and design points of PLC, so that you can better understand how to select and design PLC systems. 1、 Selection of PLC When selecting a PLC, the following factors need to be considered: PLC specifications The specifications of PLCs are usually classified based on their input/output (I/O) points and processor speed. The number of I/O points is one of the important parameters of PLC, which determines how many input and output signals the PLC can control. The processor speed determines the processing power of the PLC, including scanning speed and execution speed. When selecting a PLC, it is necessary to choose the corresponding specifications based on actual needs. For example, if you need to control a large number of input and output signals, you need to choose a PLC with more I/O points; If you need to process a large amount of data quickly, you need to choose a PLC with a faster processor speed. Functions of PLC In addition to specifications, it is also necessary to consider the functionality of the PLC. The functions of PLC usually include logic operations, counters, timers, PID control, communication, and data processing. When selecting a PLC, it is necessary to select a PLC with corresponding functions based on actual needs. For example, if PID control is required, a PLC with PID control function needs to be selected; If communication is required, a PLC with a communication interface needs to be selected. Brand of PLC When choosing a PLC, it is also necessary to consider the brand of the PLC. Different brands of PLCs have different characteristics and user experiences. Therefore, when choosing PLC, it is necessary to choose the corresponding brand based on actual needs. 2、 Design points of PLC In the design process of PLC, the following key points need to be noted: Determine control requirements Before conducting PLC design, it is necessary to clarify the control requirements. This includes determining which machines or processes need to be controlled, which signals need to be collected, which signals need to be output, and so on. Only by clarifying the control requirements can effective PLC design be carried out. Determine the number and type of I/O points According to the control requirements, it is necessary to determine the required I/O points and types. The number of I/O points refers to the number of signals that the PLC needs to receive and output, while the type refers to whether these signals are input signals or output signals. Select the corresponding number and type of PLCs based on actual needs. Determine control logic The determination of control logic is based on control requirements and I/O points to determine the logical relationships within the PLC. This usually involves a series of control programs, including logic operations, counters, timers, etc. When determining the control logic, it is necessary to select the corresponding logic program based on actual needs. Determine communication protocol When designing a PLC, it is also necessary to determine the communication protocol. Communication protocol refers to the communication method and protocol between PLC and other devices. Select the corresponding communication protocol according to actual needs, such as Modbus, Profinet, etc. Determine programming language Finally, it is necessary to determine the programming language. Programming language is a language used to write and edit PLC programs. Different PLC brands may support different programming languages. When determining the programming language, it is necessary to choose the corresponding programming language based on actual needs. In short, the selection and design of PLC is an important link in the field of industrial automation. When designing and selecting PLC, it is necessary to choose the corresponding specifications, functions, brands, and other parameters based on actual needs. At the same time, it is also necessary to pay attention to factors such as the operating environment and lifespan of the PLC to ensure the stability and reliability of the PLC system.
