EE369 – Industrial Automation PLC Sequential Practice Problem (Container example) A container is loaded with 50 items at a loading dock. The loading chute only opens if the container is at the loading dock. Once full, the container is moved forward by a conveyor to the unloading dock where it waits for 1 minute. Once empty, the container is moved back by the conveyor in reverse to the loading dock and the process can repeat. Pressing a N.O. ‘Start’ pushbutton begins the sequence. Once 1000 items have been unloaded, the process comes to a stop. - A sensor detects items filling the container - A N.O. limit switch ‘LS1’ detects if the container is at the loading dock - A N.O. limit switch ‘LS2’ detects if the container is at the unloading dock - The conveyor is controlled by two motor starters, ‘Forward’ and ‘Reverse’ 1. Write a PLC program to control the operation of this sequential process. 2. Modify the above program to include a N.O. toggle switch, ‘Pause’,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
