new to the forum, fairly new to PLCs in general..
I'm trying to set up 8 analogue inputs (from thermocouples using the 08TC module). I've managed to configure the hardware and have changed all inputs to TC_type_K, and then set them to degrees.
The problem is, I can't see any element in the toolbox that represents an analogue input? Is it possible to have an analogue input in the ladder diagram?
I would like to log temperatures over a 24 hour period, and to set a reference temperature which if exceeded, will open a contact. If anyone has a downloadable example of this, that would be very useful!
As I said, I'm new to this, so layman's terms please!
