The wiring and how to use an analog input or output in your PLC program can be tricky. Most often you will see digital example PLC programs and in my Structured Text Tutorial most of the examples are digital programs. How do you scale an analog signal in Function Block Diagram? This article will give you answers to this and much more.
First of all, we are going to look at some numbers. A PLC can only work with the values 0 and 1. This is great for digital signals. They are either 0 or 1 and thereby relatively easy to work with.
Mitsubishi Electric MELSEC iQ-F FX5 User Manual
But what about analog signals? As Wikipedia writes, analog signals are continuous signals that can vary over time. For example you can have a volt analog signal.
This signal can vary from 0 to 10 volts and have any voltage level in between. And since analog signals are continuous, this signal will always at any time represent a voltage level. If you look at the diagram below, you will see that the analog signal can have any value between 0 and 10 volts.
The question is now: how do a PLC deal with all these different values? We cannot represent it with boolean values, because they can only have the values 0 and 1.
As mentioned before a PLC can only work with the two values 0 and 1. But that does stop us from working with analog signals. Because what is really going on, is that the PLC works with binary numbers. This is due to the fact that a PLC or a microcontroller is really just advanced electrical circuits made out of transistors.
Since a transistor can only be either on or off, these two states will then represent the values 0 and 1. But this only gives us two states. Very useful for digital signals, but not for analog. To understand how analog inputs work in a PLC you have to understand binary numbers.Bring outstanding performance and impactful capabilities to your machines.

Could you please provide me with the required ladder code for that. An example of converting the value of the analog signal SD and SD from an integer to a real number.
Thanks so much. I've connected 2V to each of the analogue modules. Posted 23 Aug It is necessary to organize a registry reset at PLC startup. That's what I did in the attached program. Posted 24 Aug Posted 13 Mar After turning off the PLC and back on it is okay now. I am going to have to try to get it working for the digital to analog next. Sos about the earlier post.

Input range setting Offset value Gain value Digital output value Resolution 1. List of Functions Description Reference Range switching function Allows switching the input range of an analog input for each channel. Switching the Page 25 range makes it possible to change the input conversion characteristics. Range Switching Function This function allows switching the input range of an analog input for each channel. Switching the range makes it possible to change the input conversion characteristics.
Setting procedure Set the input range to be used in the "Input range setting". Page 29 If the set time is shorter than the scan time, the averaging processing is not executed, but the sampling value is output. However, only in the first output, the averaged value of the 1st sample and 2nd sample is output.
Page 31 Input range Normal range Over-scale detection condition Analog input value lower limit Analog input value upper limit 0 to 20 mA Page Scaling Function Scaling Function This function performs the scale conversion on digital output values.
The values are converted within a specified range between a scaling upper limit value and scaling lower limit value. The converted values are stored in "digital operation value". Page 33 Corresponding devices The devices which are used by the scaling function are listed below.
The digital operation value reflects the change in the conversion value shift amount on a realtime basis. Therefore, fine adjustment can be easily performed when the system starts. Page Digital Clipping Function Digital Clipping Function This function fixes the range of the digital operation value with the maximum digital output value and the minimum digital output value when the corresponding current or voltage exceeds the input range.Started by markyspicer26 Nov Posted 26 Nov Anyone can help how to program a analog coming from a level transmitter?
I'm new to mitsubishi analog. This library have all you need with helpful chm datasheet. If can't register i may send you it on your e-mail. Thanks for the reply! I have the block now, the problem is that I'm not that familiar regarding the block. If I have 8 analog inputs to be monitored in the plc does it mean I need to analog blocks?
I usually use H for ma. This mode provide check wirebrake if output lower then 3 ma.
HeadAddress if you place this 2 modules without any intelligent modules before, so addresses will 0 1st module and 1 2ed module. I just leave mine as a default "4". Also the "RawToEng" block, this one is included into the Elements? Posted 28 Nov Try without this scaling functionality first to make sure it works.
Less program equals easier to debug, so start easy then add functionality. Posted 23 Sep Posted 29 Sep I have added all the logic and it works also. Like or something, untill you reset the whole PLC.
