TozoM8 Posted January 7, 2014 Report Share Posted January 7, 2014 Here is my next challenge. I am running a V1210 with V200-18-E3XB on my industrial washing machine. I use one analog input for the scale to load the machine and it works perfect. The operator enters how much they want to load into the machine (400lbs) and when they load the silo that feeds the washer stops at 400. When the washing is finnished the material goes to another machine (dryer) that also has the same PLC setup.The two machine runs on a different 24V power supply, but it could run from the same if that helps. The wet material that goes into the dryer silo is around 30% heavyer. How can I set the dryer silo scale to turn off at 520lbs, 30% higher than the washer setting? I was thinking to setup an analog output from the washer plc to the dryer plc as an analog input then linealize it to ad 30% and store it as load limit. This way when they change the load limit in the washer it would automatically tell the dryer how much material it should get. The problem I see with this idea is that I am using the acm and T+ from the scale amplifyer. Connecting an analog common from a different source could be a problem that could screw up my scale reading. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
