Ladder Logic Tutorial with Ladder Logic Symbols & Diagrams
The Origins of Ladder Logic – Relay LogicThe Structure of Ladder Logic/How to Read Ladder LogicSimilarities With Ladder DiagramsExecution of Ladder LogicThe Logic Behind The LadderTry A Ladder Logic ExerciseLearn More About Ladder LogicImagine for a second it’s 1980. You’re cruising in your brand new Ford Pinto on the way to your job at the local Rubik’s Cube plant. You have a busy day ahead since the plant is being redesigned for the new Rubik’s Revenge model due out next year. The relay panels you work on need to be rewired to accommodate the change in production size, from the original 3x3x3 size to the new 4x4x4 modele relay panels consist of numerous electromechanical relays that are wired together to perform a ce..See more on automationdirectThe structure behind ladder logic is based on the electrical ladder diagrams that were used with relay logic. These diagrams documented how connections between devices were made on relay panels; they are called “ladder” diagrams because they are constructed in a way that resembles a ladder with two vertical rails and rungs between them. The positive power rail (on the left) flows to the negative power rail (on the right) through the physical devices connected on the rung. The example below sh..See more on automationdirectLadder logic was designed to have the same look and feel as electrical ladder diagrams, but with ladder logic, the physical contacts and coils are replaced with memory bits. Let’s take a look. For this program, the relay logic’s ladder diagram is duplicated with ladder logic; no more hard-wired logic, but memory locations instead. Some of these memory locations are used internally and others are used with external inputs and outputs. To monitor and control real world devices, they will need t..See more on automationdirectTypically before starting to execute the logic, the CPU reads the physical inputs tied to the I/O modules to update their status in the CPU’s memory table. Then, starting at the top left of the program, the CPU works its way down the rail executing each rung or sub rung from left to right. So if PB1 is pressed, the CPU will turn ON CR1. Since CR1 has changed states, in rung 3 the CPU will activate CR3. CR3’s normally-closed state is used in rung 4, so the CPU will then turn OFF L1 though..See more on automationdirectSo what logic can ladder logic actually perform? With the increasing demand for functionality and ease of use, many of today’s PLCs incorporate function blocks with ladder logic. The structure of the program is still ladder with the more complex instructions being function blocks. So to answer the question, let’s look at a few examples:See more on automationdirectIf you would like to try an exercise in ladder logic, AutomationDirect has created a beginner’s programming exercise. This exercise was actually created for the Boy Scouts of America to help teach ladder logic to future PLC programmers. It uses the simulator included with the Do-more Designer programming software for our Do-more PLC series software is free and you do not need any hardware, so try it.
