In this lab you will be automating the operation of the conveyor system using timing and counting instructions. The program is required to operate as follows:
- Note: The conveyor will be operated and programmed in Safety Mode (switch the conveyor output to the NC position) so that the Motor will stop when it receives a signal.
- When the switch S_3 is activated, the conveyer is required to run (M_R OFF).
- When the conveyor is running the green light L_2 is to be energized.
- The fiber optic sensor FP_S must count the TOTAL parts that go through the conveyor.
- The inductive sensor IP_S must count the METAL parts that go through the conveyor.
- Each time a metallic part is detected by IP_S the conveyor must temporarily stop for 10 seconds or until the part is manually removed. The red light L_1 must be energized during this period.
- If the part is not removed within the 10-second period the blue light L_3 must be latched.
- The limit switch L_S must momentarily stop the conveyor and unlatch the blue light L_3.
- The conveyor must be stopped when the METAL part count reaches 5 or when the TOTAL part count reaches 10.
- If the METAL part count reaches 5, the red light L_1 must flash in intervals of 250 ms.
- Pushbutton S_1 is used to RESET the TOTAL part counter.
- Pushbutton S_2 is used to RESET the METAL part counter.

Hi jaeo.
Welcome to AAC.
Is this a College or Homework project.?

Hey Eric,

Thank you. Yes, this is a lab assignment. The professor doesn't care to teach so we aren't given examples to go off of to learn or even know if our program is done properly. He just grades us harshly for our mistakes.
