Learn how to work with current (4-20ma) and voltage (0-10VDC) analog signals using two different sensors and integrating them into an Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC running RSLogix/Studio 5000
Analog signals play an important role in every manufacturing operation. They are used for distance, pressure, weight, speed, and much more. In this course, we will explore two main analog signal types: current and voltage.
By integrating IFM and KEYENCE sensors into an Allen Bradley CompactLogix PLC, we’re going to learn about the steps required to set up the hardware and configure the software for reading and scaling analog values.
The class assumes no prior knowledge of hardware or software, although some familiarity with RSLogix 5000 will help as no emphasis is placed on basic instructions. The students are exposed to working with 4-20mA signals (most common), followed by 0-10VDC signals. We’re also diving into the datasheets of every device in order to figure out which settings to use on the device and PLC side.
