    Siemens S7-1200PLC Motion Control Foundation - High Speed Counter Nov 23, 2023
    The counting process of the ordinary counter in PLC is related to the scanning operation mode. The CPU captures the rising edge of the measured signal by reading it once per scanning cycle. When the frequency of the measured signal is high, the counting pulse will be lost. Therefore, the maximum operating frequency of ordinary counters is generally only a few tens of hertz. High speed counter (HSC) can count events that occur faster than the execution rate of program loop OB.   High speed counters are generally used in conjunction with incremental encoders, where each count pulse or reset pulse emitted by the latter serves as the input signal for the high speed counter. There are several types of encoders. (1) Incremental encoder The encoder disc of the photoelectric incremental encoder has uniformly engraved gratings. When the encoder rotates, it outputs pulses proportional to the increment of the rotation angle, and a counter is needed to count the number of pulses. The single channel incremental encoder has only one pair of optocouplers inside, which can only generate one pulse train. A dual channel incremental encoder, also known as an A/B phase or quadrature phase encoder, has two pairs of photosynthetic devices internally and outputs two independent pulse trains with a 90 ° difference. The leading and lagging relationships of the two pulses during forward and reverse rotation are opposite. If an A/B phase encoder is used, the PLC can recognize the direction of shaft rotation and the output waveform of the A/B phase encoder. Input points used by high-speed counters The system manual of S7-1200 provides the default digital input points for HSCI-HSC6 of various CPU models when referring to humans in single-phase, two-phase, and A/B phases, as well as the highest counting frequency for each input point in different counting modes. The data type of the actual count value of HSC1-HSC6 is DInt, and the default address is ID100-ID1020. (1) The working mode of HSC All HSCs have 5 high-speed counting operating modes: a single-phase counter with internal directional control, a timer with external directional length control, a biphase counter with two input channels of the clock, an AB phase orthogonal counter, and a monitoring P1O output. Each HSC mode can use or do not use a support input. When the reset input is in the 1 state, the kinetic energy of the HSC's real count value can only start counting when it reaches the point where the reset input becomes the port. The maximum measurable single pulse frequency is 100 kHz, and the maximum frequency for dual phase and A/B phase can be 30 kHz. The high-speed counter can be connected to an external rotary encoder, and users can use this function in software by configuring the PLC hardware and calling relevant instructions. (1) Hardware Configuration of HSC Open the device view of the PLC and select the CPU within it. Select the "General" high-speed counter HSC1 on the left side of the "Properties" tab in the inspection window, and check the checkbox "Enable this high-speed counter". Select the 'Function' in the left window, set the 'Count Type' to 'Count', select the 'Work Mode' as the external direction control of the A/B phase counter, and set the initial counting direction to 'Add Count'. Select "Hardware Input" in the left window and set the "Input for Clock Generator Phase A" address to 10.0, and the "Input for Clock Generator Phase B" address to 10.1. Select "I/O Address" in the left window. The default address of HSC1 is ID1000, which can be used to monitor the count value and hardware configuration of HSC1 during runtime. (2) Set the filtering time for digital input The default filtering time of the input filter for the digital input channels of the CPU and signal board is 6.4 ms. If the filtering time is too long, it is easy to filter out the input pulses during the filtering cycle. For the digital input of high-speed counters, set the corresponding digital input filter using the expected minimum pulse width. The shorter filtering time in the input filtering time list for CPU digital input can be selected, such as 0.1 ms. If the width of the input pulse is changed, the filtering time of the input filter should also be changed.   6SN1118-0BK11-0AA0 6GK1100-0AT01 6GK1611-0TA01-1BV0 6GK1415-0AA01 6ES7292-1AF20-0AA0 6SN1118-0NH01-0AA0 6GK1100-0BA00 6GK1900-0KL00-0AA0 6GK1704-5DW60-3AA0 6ES7290-2AA00-0XA0 6SN1118-0NH01-0AA1 6GK1100-2AB00 6GK7443-5FX01-0XE0 6GK1970-1TA43-0AA2 6ES7298-0AA20-0AA3 6SN1118-0DA11-0AA0 6GK1100-2AC00 6GK1611-0TA01-1BX0 6GK1415-2AA00 6ES7291-8BA00-0XA0 6SN1118-0DA12-0AA0 6GK1101-0AA01 6GK1901-0AA00-0AA0 6GK1704-5DW61-3AA0 6ES7292-1AG20-0AA0 6SN1118-0NH10-0AA0 6GK1101-0AB01 6GK7443-5FX02-0XE0 6GK1970-1TA43-0AA4 6ES7290-2BA00-0XA0 6SN1118-0NH10-0AA2 6GK1102-0AA00 6GK1611-0TA01-1DV0 6GK1415-2AA01 6ES7298-0AA20-0BA3 6SN1118-0DA13-0AA0 6GK1102-0AB00 6GK1901-0AA00-0AC0 6GK1704-5DW62-3AA0 6ES7291-8BA20-0XA0

  • Machinery drives the future, and mechanical excellence relies on strength
    Machinery drives the future, and mechanical excellence relies on strength Aug 29, 2023
    The number of independent motions possessed by a component is called its degree of freedom. Obviously, a free component that performs planar motion has three degrees of freedom. A mechanism is composed of many components connected in a certain way, which should ensure that there is a certain relative motion between the components. This type of connection that allows two components to come into direct contact and generate a certain relative motion is called a motion pair. Low pair The motion pair composed of two components through surface contact is called a low pair. It includes two types: rotating pair and moving pair. The rotating pair can only rotate relatively in one plane, while the moving pair can only move along a certain axis direction. Therefore, a low pair introduces two constraints, namely reducing two degrees of freedom. Senior Officer The motion pair composed of two components in contact with each other through points or lines is called a high pair. 1. Fixed parts (rack) The components used by humans to support moving components are called fixed components (racks). The cylinder block in an internal combustion engine is a fixed component used to support pistons, crankshafts, etc. 2. Prime mover The active components with known motion patterns are called active components. The piston in an internal combustion engine is the driving component, and its motion is input from the outside world. 3. Follower The other moving components that move with the motion of the original component are the driven components. Connecting rods, crankshafts, and other components in internal combustion engines are all driven components. This type of multiple rotating pairs composed of three or more components with overlapping axes at one point is called a composite hinge. The local independent motion that does not affect the motion of the entire mechanism is called the local degree of freedom. In practical mechanisms, constraints that repeat other constraints without limiting motion are called virtual constraints. Virtual constraints should be disregarded when calculating the degree of freedom of the mechanism. If one is a crank and the other is a rocker, then this mechanism is called a crank rocker mechanism. In a hinged four bar mechanism, if both connecting rods are cranks, then this mechanism is called a double crank mechanism. In a hinged four bar mechanism, the two connecting rods are both rocker rods, which is called a double rocker mechanism machine. 1. There must be one pole between the connecting pole and the rack as the shortest pole. 2. The sum of the lengths of the shortest and longest strokes is equal to the sum of the lengths of the other two strokes. As can be seen from the above, when determining the form of a chain four bar mechanism, it is necessary to first determine whether the mechanism meets the rod length condition. If so, the form of the mechanism can be determined using the following method: ① If the short rod can be used as a connecting rod, a crank rocker mechanism can be obtained; ② If the shortest rod is a frame, a double crank mechanism is obtained 3. If the shortest rod is a connecting rod, a double rocker mechanism is obtained. A four bar linkage that satisfies the condition of being in a long chain, regardless of which member is used as the frame, does not have any curvature, so the mechanism can only be a double rich linkage. ■Speed of Reply to Inquiries  Attn: Mr. Liao Mobile: +86 15259245292 Email:   WeChat/WhatsApp: +86 15259245292 Address: Room 1601, Building 6, Haicang Seattle, No. 330 Zhonglin Road, Haicang District, Xiamen City, Fujian Province
  • Seven steps to complete Siemens PLC debugging, electrical novices can learn even after reading it!
    Seven steps to complete Siemens PLC debugging, electrical novices can learn even after reading it! Aug 22, 2023
    Seven steps to complete Siemens PLC debugging, electrical novices can learn even after reading it! Many beginners in electrical engineering may not know how to start debugging after completing the design of electrical control cabinets and PLC programs, or some may encounter issues such as PLC burning due to improper debugging methods. So, how should the designed electrical system be debugged? You can follow the following seven steps. 1. Check the circuit according to the drawing (without power supply) The drawings of a general PLC system include two parts: inside cabinet drawings and outside cabinet drawings; Cabinet drawings refer to the wiring diagrams inside the cabinet; The drawings outside the cabinet are the wiring diagrams for all electrical cabinets. What needs to be checked in this section is; 1. Is the drawing design reasonable, including the capacity of various components, etc. 2. Check whether the components are connected strictly according to the drawing. The most important thing to note during this process is to check the power supply: 1. Ensure that the circuit is not short circuited. 2. Ensure that strong and weak currents are not mixed together; Because the PLC power supply is 24V, once 220V is connected to the PLC due to wiring errors, it is easy to burn the PLC or expansion module. 2. Check the external circuit of the PLC, commonly known as "dotting" After confirming the power supply, power on and test the input and output points, commonly known as "dotting". Testing the IO points requires testing one by one, including operation buttons, emergency stop buttons, operation indicator lights, cylinders and their limit switches, etc. The specific method is to have one person operate the buttons on the site side and the other person monitor the input and output signals on the PLC; For large systems, a test table should be established, that is, marked after testing. If any wiring errors are found during the construction process, they need to be dealt with immediately. In this step, it should be noted that it is necessary to back up the program and clear the program in the PLC or disable the program to avoid device actions caused by testing. 3. Check the mechanical structure and test the motor load This step requires checking whether the mechanical structure is tight, and whether the motor load is properly protected to avoid accidents caused by accidents. After the inspection is completed, it is necessary to manually test the operation of the equipment. For example, for forward and reverse rotation motors, it is necessary to test the integrity of the circuit and conduct live testing. For frequency converters, corresponding parameters should be set and motor optimization, static identification or dynamic identification should be carried out. It should be noted here that for some special loads, such as vertically moving loads, they need to be carried out by professional personnel to avoid testing accidents caused by improper control. 4. Debugging manual mode/semi-automatic mode and related logical relationships After testing both the IO point and load side, the next step is to debug in manual mode. The manual mode here can also be called semi-automatic mode, which does not directly press the solenoid valve or contactor by hand, but refers to driving the device through buttons or HMI buttons, which corresponds to the automatic state. Manual mode testing can decompose the automatic mode according to human preferences, making it easier to test the program. The most important aspect of this process is to test the safety functions, that is, to test whether the emergency stop, safety grating, and other safety functions have played a corresponding role while the equipment is running. 5. Debugging automatic mode according to production process After completing semi-automatic debugging, the automatic work can be further debugged. This link is the most important and requires testing various interlocks according to the production process, including logical interlocks, safety interlocks, etc., and testing several more work cycles to ensure that the system can work continuously and correctly. 6. Testing of special processes In addition to logic control, there are many expanded functions in the PLC system, such as PID control. After these logic debugging are basically completed, you can start debugging analog and pulse control. The most important thing is to select appropriate control parameters. Generally speaking, this process is relatively long. Be patient and make multiple choices of parameters before selecting the best one. Some PLCs have PID parameters that can be obtained through self tuning. But this self tuning process also takes a considerable amount of time to complete. 7. Complete all the steps above The entire debugging is basically completed. Next comes the step of pre production, which is a pre production work inspection. During this stage, special tests can be carried out in conjunction with production, such as whether the production rhythm is met, whether the safety function can still function under load, etc. Generally, the work can be completed after a certain period of continuous production.   Novice should pay special attention to the power supply. I remember that when I debugged the first project many years ago, the construction company connected the 220V contact and 24V contact of the pull cord switch of the large belt incorrectly (the pull cord switch of the belt is a safety device, with two sets of contacts, one is 220V to disconnect the control loop, the other is 24V to enter the PLC), which caused the burning of a digital input template. Later, it became a long memory. When debugging again, we must distinguish 220 and 24, I never had any problems again. ■Speed of Reply to Inquiries  Attn: Mr. Liao Mobile: +86 15259245292 Email:   WeChat/WhatsApp: +86 15259245292 Address: Room 1601, Building 6, Haicang Seattle, No. 330 Zhonglin Road, Haicang District, Xiamen City, Fujian Province
