This is the fourth segment of the first volume on “How to Program a PLC”. In this series, we will examine an application and then create the code (logic) for the control of the discussed application. In this segment, we edit the logic to accomodate I/O memory locations and more compact code.

I really like your videos for practicing them I tried to download software for but I couldn’t find an suitable one, please give an link where I can download it.
Yeah just figured it out while trying to fall asleep… a limit switch will provide 1 (true) until it reaches the limit… thx anyway :)
Hi. Thanks a lot for all your videos. I’ve learned a lot. But I do have a question right now and it would be great if someone could answer..
You have the next situation:
MOTOR UP is being powered up by CR_UP
CR_UP(last piece – third line of the program) is TRUE when the UP_PB has been pushed, the CR_DOWN is false and the UP_LIMIT is TRUE.
This line of the code tells the door to go up, and stop when the limit has been reached. But until the door sets the UP_LIMIT sensor off, it still needs to be moving upwards. So basically the initial conditions in order to get the MOTOR_UP functioning, are not met.
I have seen this many times and I just cannot understand the logic.. Maybe you could help me understand.
In my opinion, this doesnt work. Because in order to get the UP_Limit sensor triggered, the door has to move initially
(even if it is a few inches). But our program says that, in order to get the MOTOR_UP on(and the door moving), we first need to have the UP_LIMIT Sensor triggered. So how does it actually work? What am I missing?
THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE!!!
