MFET 243, Lab #5 page 1 of 17 MFET 243 Laboratory Assignment #5 Fall ’09 Introduction to DeviceNet Objectives: After successfully completing this assignment, you will gain insight into: 1) The MFET conveyor system. You will become familiar with the basic operation of the devices (photo-eyes, product stops, shot pins, etc.) used on each dropline of the MFET conveyor system. 2) The DeviceNet local area network (LAN). The field devices used on the MFET conveyor system are wired to the ControlLogix PLCs using DeviceNet. Each dropline functions as an independent DeviceNet network. In addition, you will: Expand your PLC template program by adding the 1756-DNB DeviceNet scanner module to the I/O configuration folder. Create alias tags for DeviceNet I/O. Get familiar with the basic operation of the MFET conveyor system. Preparation: It is assumed that your instructor has delivered a presentation on DeviceNet. Refer to the presentations entitled “Introduction to DeviceNet” and “Using DeviceNet on the MFET Conveyor.” It is assumed that you have completed the following laboratory assignments: Lab #1 - Working with Local I/O Lab #2 - Working with Universal Remote I/O Lab #3 - Using RSLogix 5000 Lab #4 - Basic Instructions
