Point IO 1734 Allen Bradley - Input Sensor Hardware Installation Wiring Testing Programming Tutorial

Point IO is a critical component of a distributed control system. This hardware component from Rockwell Automation allows the end user to add nodes of inputs and outputs to their system within proximity of field devices. By doing so, costs of installation are reduced and the need of multiple PLCs is reduced if not eliminated in most situations.

Point IO 1734 Allen Bradley - Tutorial on Programming Inputs Outputs in RSLogix Studio 5000 Ladder

In the previous tutorial on Point IO (Tutorial Link), we’ve installed a SICK Sensor onto the 1734-IB8 input 0. We’ve also tested the sensor, input as well as the software to make sure that the data is sent to our PLC as expected. Now that we’ve established this link, we need to spend some time programming the input and going over a simple example of how it can be utilized in a practical application.
