RM 210 - Programming & Troubleshooting Industrial Systems using RSLogix5000

All of these video lectures are in support of The Complete PACLearn Series...Fundamental Programming Manual & Programming Examples Manual.

IGNORE all References to Page Numbers, Project Names and File Names in these videos...they have all changed with the newest edition of this set of manuals, but the content is the same.

Click to view>> Latest Edition - this set of Lecture/Lab Manuals 

We have purposefully eliminated any sequence numbers to allow free access to all of the lectures regardless of which edition of the manuals that you are using. There was a set of two manuals that are white/blue and white/green. They were replaced with one manual, quite fat, that is red/black. The current version is a set of two manuals that are both blue/black.

Introduction to RSLogix5000 and RSLinx

Opening RSLogix5000, exploring the menus and connecting with RSLinx...

Creating a New Project

Creating your first project from scratch...

Introduction to I/O, Input and Output Interface Modules

Introduction to the relationship between the processor's database and hardware the interfaces to the real world (I/O).

Addition Discussion on I/O

Discussion regarding the I/O modules that you have to work with if other than what we install in our hardware training stations and used for this manual's lab projects.

Keyboard Surfing of the Processor's Memory Structure

Introductory interaction between your keyboard and bits in the processor's memory.

Your first bits in memory...

Keyboard interaction with memory locations that you have declared (specified).

Just for Fun...Making bits Dance

Seemingly irrelevant...the "Just for Fun" lab projects allow you to poke the memory in the dark and observe unapparent behavior.

Creating your first rung of logic with real I/O controlled bits

First chance to work with a rung of logic that responds to input devices and controls the state of an output device...lights and switches.

Sneak Peek into an Advance Subject

This lab is meant to tickle your curiosity.

Buffering your I/O

Typically we buffer our I/O memory states to avoid the pitfalls of nonsynchronous program scan

Dances with Bits

More interaction between your keyboard, the logic and the memory locations.

Latch OTL (SET) and Unlatch OTU (RESET)

Demonstrating the behavior of latch and unlatch instructions.

More Latch and Unlatch demonstration

additional discussion on OTL & OTU...

Seal In Logic Pt1

Introduction to the most popular style of writing logic that has to maintain the state of a bit even after the conditions that set it are no longer the same.

Seal In Logic Pt2

Continuation of the previous discussion of seal-in logic.

Challenge 01 Pt1 - Conveyor Application

The first installment of a lab project, practical in nature, that demonstrates the instructions that you have been learning.
