Structured Text PLC Programming | Mathematical Operators Analog Scaling Inputs

The six operators play an important role in structured text programming in numerous applications. They're used for scaling analog signals, computing ratios, updating counters, converting between different constants and much more. In this tutorial, we will go over the operators mentioned above and create a few basic examples which would utilize them in a real PLC program. Lastly, we will go over the importance of parenthesis when it comes to the order of operation. It's not something that you'd normally worry about in ladder logic and is therefore an important point to understand when you're migrating to structured text.
