Ladder Sequence Control

Application Examples of Ladder Sequence Program

Alarm Sequence Control Circuits Can be Reduced
The ladder sequence program is built in the UTAdvanced as standard. The ladder sequence function enables monitoring and controlling peripheral devices such as relays, thus making it possible to reduce costs.

[Conventional]
Alarm action was built by a sequence control circuit (relay, timer, etc.) outside of the controller.

[UTAdvanced]
Alarm action is built by the ladder sequence program inside the UTAdvanced, thus making it possible to reduce costs.

Alarm Sequence Control Circuits can be Reduced

Example: Alarm annunciator

Host System Load is Reduced

[Conventional]
Action

Various types of analog data were captured into the host system (PLC, etc.) and calculated, and the results were processed by the field controller for control via a command.

[UTAdvanced]
Merit

The UTAdvanced with up to 4 analog inputs* enables various types of analog data to be captured directly into the controller and calculated by the ladder program, thus reducing the system-building load of the host. Action: Various types of analog data were captured into the host system (PLC, etc.) and calculated, and the results were processed by the field controller for control via a command.

Overview:

With advances in process automation comes a greater need for level measurement and control. As pressure on at the bottom surface of a liquid is proportional to the height of the liquid's surface, you can measure pressure using a differential pressure transmitter to detect the level of the liquid, acquire the data on the UT75A Digital Indicating Controller, and use the measurements to control the tank level.
