PLC TEST 3 WITH SOLUTIONS


Theoretical Questions & Answers:

1) Write a program when xo is pressed, k1001 is stored in D5, when x1 is pressed k-345 is stored in
D7, When x1 is not pressed k99 is stored in D7. When x2 is pressed D5 and D7 are added and
result is stored in D10?

Code for Calculation

2) You need to read an analog voltage that has and range of -10v to +10v to a precision of +_ 0.05
volt. What resolution of A/D is needed

Voltage Range : -10 V ~ +10 V


Precision required: + 0.05 Volt

Resolution: Minimum 9 Bit A/D is required


Calculations:
Resolution of 10 Bit: (20 Volt) / 1024 = 19.53 mV
Resolution of 9 Bit: (20 Volt) / 512 = 39.06 mV (Comes with in the range)
Resolution of 8 Bit: (20 Volt) / 256 = 78.125 mV

3) We are given a 12 bit analog I/P with a range of -10v to +10v. If we put in 2.735 V. What will be
integer value after conversion? what is the error? What voltage can be calculated?

Total Range : (-10V ~ +10 V) = 20 Volts


Resolution: 12 Bit

Input Voltage: 2.735 V

Calculations:
12 Bits = 4000 digital bits (2^12)
1 V = 200 Bits
2.735 V = 200 x @.735 = 547 Bits

Error Calculation: (Total Range)/ (Total Digital Bits) = 5 mV. It means the processor can measure &
convert minimum of 5 mV. Below this range, it cannot convert. For that we need to install higher
bit resolution processor.
Minimum voltage to be calculated is 5 mV

4) We need D/A convertor for an application. The O/p should vary from +5v to +10vdc only by
potentiometer at the A/D channel. Write the code.

The output vary through 5 V ~ 10 V by Potentiometer variation of 0V ~ 10V

5) Write the program that will I/p an analog voltage. Do the Calculations below and O/P analog
voltage.
{Vout= 5 (vin) – 3/2 (Vin)}

Vout = 5 (Vin) – 3/2 (Vin) – Code Attached*

6) An m/c is connected to load cell that O/P voltage proportional to the mass on a platform.
1) When unloaded the cell output a voltage of 1volt.
2) Mass of 500 kg results in 6v.
 Write a program that will measure the mass and indicate it in the code in kg.
 If the mass is not b/w 300 kg and 400 kg and alarm ok will be turned on

Practical Questions:
8) Write a program using A/D and D/A such that
When
 Avin -1 volt Y0 is ON AVout-2volt
 Avin-2v Y1is ON AVout=4volt
 Avin-4v Y2 is ON AVout=8 volt
 Avin-6v Y3 is ON AVout=3 volt
 Avin-8v Y4 is ON AVout=4volt
 Avin>8v All output are off

9) Make an arrangement for sorting metals and nonmetals objects on a conveyor using PLC.

For sorting of Metal & Non Metal object, we need two sensors:
Inductive Proximity – For metal detection
Capacitive Proximity – For non metal Detection
Assume, Sorting is done by Pneumatic Cylinder actuated by 3/2 single solenoid spring return Valve

Working:
1) A toggle switch is used to run the conveyor
2) Now when both the sensors are “ON”, it means object is Metallic, so as per the code, the
solenoid will be actuated & metallic object will be displaced by the actuation of c linder as
shown below

3) Now, if the object is non-metallic, then as per the code, it will pass away through the conveyor
(the cylinder will not actuate)
