Hello friends, I am new to Unitronics hardware and have about 1 year experience with ladder logic (studio 5000 up to this point). I am tasked with writing a program for a machine that uses the following components and I just need some help on choosing the right Unitronics PLC and what snap-in's I will need to work with the components:
-conveyer belts (1 requires indexing/location tracking)
-motor driving an actuator
-motor moving a tray back and forth along rails
-9 load cells
I am leaning towards the Vision 350 TR20 currently, and it looks like the IO-LC3 module supports up to 3 load cells each, so I will need a PLC that supports at least 3 expansion ports (one for each IO-LC3)
Also, in general I am wondering about how servos/motors are added to a program using Unitronics, it seems like there us usually a data bit to enable the servo (maybe controlling the power supply) and then a bit representing motor go/stop?
Any help you all have is greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!
