I found this article very helpful. The machine file was excellent - well written and commented. The sequenced start routine with the 8 motors gave my students something to study without doing a lot of typing at the beginning of class. I liked the twist where the start sequence could not be stopped until it was completed. It stressed the value of the MCR. I also challenged the students to study the code and figure out how to make the stop work immediately.

Very well written example.

Thank you,
Jim Barnes

Is the Stop Pushbutton (XIO I:2.0/15) supposed to be a NO or XIC? Seems like in this example someone is holding the button down or am I analyzing it wrong?

for jeff:
i was not able to dl the file, but i'm guessing that you are referring to a NC stop button. for safety's sake, stops are NC. that way, if a wire breaks, the machine stops. we wouldnt want an E-stop to be dissables and not know it. that could happen in a NO switch.

This article is very helpful to me, since I am only a beginner in handling RS Logix programs. The program's printable version is in PDF format. Can I know what are the procedures in documenting the RS Logix programs into pdf format. I will be using this for learning and documentation purposes. Your detailed instructions are highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
