Hello, I have a JZ20-R16 plc and a Aplisens 4-20 mA level transducer. I do linearization in ladder to get the correct level value in meters. Depending on the level the plc starts and stops a pump, and it all works greate. Start and stop levels are input by the user from keypad, also the max value of the transducer. Everything works ok, the problem is with displaying current level on lcd. Right after linearization i copy the value to MI3 that is set to be shown on the "main" screen. It is displayed but the readout is jumping around/changing very quickly (level is constant), numbers get blurry and they are unreadable. Tried this on 2 plcs and 2 transducers with the same result. I've seen this working but can't find any reason for this behavior. Maybe it's reading the value to often? Please help me. Any advice will be appreciated.
Hi, I have OPLC V350-35-TA24 what includes onboard I/Os and configurable via wiring 2 Analog, 2 PT100/TC, and 1 HSC/ Shaft-encoder Input. So, first, i made changes in hardware project where analog input 2 and 3 were 0-10V, I connected them with potensiometer (i used voltage divider, so to analog input went 0,33-11,5 VDC, pot supply camed from same supply as OPLC +24VDC, pot signal went to analog input, pot ground went OPLC 0V). I also changed jumper setting, input 5 (analog input 3) - JP4 B, JP10 A, input 6 (analog input 2) - JP8 B, JP9 A. I made new project were was only linearization block: X1=0, X2=1000 (10V), Y1=0, Y2=16384, input MI0, output MI20. BUT in online test MI 0 was zero, I changed input voltage, but still, no numbers. Then I tested other analog input, same story !???? Today I changed analog input 2 (input 6) hardware configuration- 4-20 mA, jumper setting - JP8 B, JP9 B. Also, before inputs were PNP, now I changed them NPN source - JP12 A. 4-20 mA source I connected: plus into OPLC +V input and minus into analog input. In linearization block were: X1=0, X2=1000, Y1= 3277, Y2=16383, input MI 0, output MI100. BUT in online test MI0 were zero. What Im doing wrong?!! test 1903.vlp
