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.

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

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

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.

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.
* In the case of the UT55A

920 MHz band wireless communication (option)

The addition of a 920 MHz wireless function to the UT52A/MDL and UT32A/MDL enables wireless data communication with the GX20 paperless recorder or GM10 data acquisition system (/CM2 option) as the remote I/O. It can also be used as a repeater.

RS485 communication. Up to 31 connected slaves with a maximum length of 0.7 miles.

920 MHz Option

Peer to Peer

The use of the ladder sequence program makes it possible to exchange analog data and status data between communication-capable UTAdvanced.

Example: A UTAdvanced in which an input error occurs sends a signal to another UTAdvanced to enable that UTAdvanced switch to MAN operation, thus shifting the whole system into a safe mode. In such a case, the safety mechanism can be built into the UTAdvanced and is not required in the host system.

Peer to Peer

Coordinated Operation

In coordinated operation, a single UTAdvanced termperature controller is used as a master controller and multiple UTAdvanced or other UTAdvanced digital indicating controllers as slave controllers.

The slave controllers are operated in accordance with the actions of the master controller.

Coordinated Operation


A protocol used for communicating with a general-purpose personal computer, or UTAdvanced series link module and serial communication module of FA-M3R (range-free controller).

The UTAdvanced Digital Indicating Controller comes standard with ladder sequence programming. The ladder sequence function can handle measured and computed values from the controller. Using this function, the UTAdvanced converts outputs from other controllers such as YS15001 to time proporioning outputs.


This introduces a system that uses Ethernet communications to acquire measured values, target values, and control output values from a controller installed on site into a PLC at high speed (ten units' worth within one second).


Controls temperature in, and acquires data from, various internal components of plastic film manufacturing equipment. An easy to use, high cost-performance data acquisition and monitoring system can be assembled by using Ethernet compatible instruments and DAQWORX package software.


Load devices are sometimes used when evaluating (measuring) DUT performance. Depending on the parameter being evaluated, multiple controllers can be employed to control the performance of the load device, but there are also times when the load device uses only one actuator. 


In the plants of food and beverage manufacturers, there are times when monitoring and recording of production equipment is necessary inside clean rooms. This is an introduction to monitoring and recording in clean rooms using paperless recorders.
