Basic PLC Ladder Programming Training Example 11: START/STOP MOTOR CONTROL PLC Ladder Program
Basic PLC Ladder Programming Training Examples for Beginners. Hi Friends here we are starting a series of Free Training on PLC Ladder Programming. These PLC Ladder Programs are important to get basics of Ladder Programs
PLC Ladder Practice Problem:
Design and connect a ladder logic control for a simple starter system of a 3 phase AC motor. The starter has one start and one stop switch. Both of the switches are momentary contact switch. Start switch is normally open and stop switch is normally close. Output relay, C1, Controls the 3-phase supply to the motor. The motor has a stop and a run indicator lights.
