      If you would like a software you can download VIPA software which is similar with Siemens software.Follow the video link ,,PLC Simulation Software WinSPS-S7 V5 andPLC-Engine”.
      Good luck!

    sir…… generally the PLC output terminals are connected to heavy rating motors, equipment, ext.., but the working voltage of PLC is only 24v…. how it is saticefies

    • Matt Rae
      Jan 10, 2019

      Typically PLC will send output to VFD control terminals, which will be rated properly to run motor line voltage and current. Not PLC output directly to motor terminals.

      Feb 16, 2020

      The PLC output terminals may be connected to relay coil rated 24V and the relay connected to the coil of the contactor which supplys the the motor. Also the PLC output may be connected to the control module of the VFD which intern run the motor. Plc is not connected directly to motors

  20. martin theresa bhagyam
    Jun 26, 2018

    sir…. the explanation given is easily understandable…. but i have a small doubt….is their any additional 230v direct supply is given to PLC module?? Iam using LX7 PLC module in its specification it mentionals it takes 12vdc inputs but iam not giving any 12dc but how it is possible…. any other internal components are their for 230vac to 24vdc and for 12dc..

    Why don’t we connect the 24v wire inbetween indicator and output port???

    Thank’s Edvard
    I fully under stand the input’s can be either dc or ac my question is there a amperage limit rating on the dc or ac input? Is it possible to raise voltage on the Input Side with terminal’s? example T-1=12/vdc & T-2=24/vdc & T-3=36/vdc & T-4=48? And I fully under stand that the Out Put can be what ever is programed example line & load in a common house hold single pole switch. My question on Out Put is there a amperage limit rating? Thanks for your help I am a retired master electrician and am trying to find ways to switch 12 volt battery’s X 4 for 48/vdc but isolated by diodes from one other for protection from back feed is this program possible for the switching I purpose?
    Thanks Again

    great video.. i have a doubt that it is necessary that we keep in mind that whether we use toggle switch or spring loaded and what the major diff. btw these switches.
