  1. I've bought some 2500kg submersible load cells which I'm connecting now to my Vision 430 J T2 PLC. I have a LC3 expansion module. Since it is almost impossible for us to calibrate the load cell according to the help files (putting real weight) on it, I'd like to use the calibration report the supplier gave me and use the 'Edit calibration point' function to match raw values with weights. Can someone give me insight on the way I have to calculate my calibration points based upon the report of the supplier? When I connect the load cell and change the representation mode to raw value, I see a raw value of around 60 000 at 0kg. 11942-2 Cal Cert.pdf
  2. Thank you for the fast response. Indeed, I could arrange this with setting and resetting bits but a state machine may be also a solution. Anyway it is hard for me to start programming this since I don't find a proper example of how to build a state machine. Do you maybe know where I can find it? I've searched on this forum and examples but maybe I’m overlooking it.
  3. Dear, Since a few weeks I started working with the Vision PLC 430 J T 2. I have three expansion modules (2 for analog inputs and 1 for load cells). Recently I've started writing down the logic of my final program. Until now I only have experience with the Siemens S7 with associated software. I want to create a sequence where the transition from state to state is based upon conditions. Only one transition can be true at any point and the sequence is always the same. I've always done this with flip flops which set and reset each other. Now I’m searching for the correct way to implement this into the Vision software. Can someone advise me on this? Thank you in advance! Nick Verlooy
