Important User Information
Solid state equipment has operational characteristics differing from those of
electromechanical equipment. “Safety Guidelines for the Application,
Installation and Maintenance of Solid State Controls” (Publication SGI-1.1)
describes some important differences between solid state equipment and
hard–wired electromechanical devices. Because of this difference, and also
because of the wide variety of uses for solid state equipment, all persons
responsible for applying this equipment must satisfy themselves that each
intended application of this equipment is acceptable.
In no event will the Allen-Bradley Company be responsible or liable for
indirect or consequential damages resulting from the use or application of
this equipment.
The examples and diagrams in this manual are included solely for illustrative
purposes. Because of the many variables and requirements associated with
any particular installation, the Allen-Bradley Company cannot assume
responsibility or liability for actual use based on the examples and diagrams.
No patent liability is assumed by Allen-Bradley Company with respect to use
of information, circuits, equipment, or software described in this manual.

The Bar Graph Screen displays both a numeric and graphical representation
of pump speed in RPM. In the sample application, this is the value of SLC
timer T4:11.ACC.
Data Entry Screen (Screen #21)
Using this screen, an operator can enter a new tank temperature setpoint.
Data for the actual temperature is the contents of SLC integer file N7:20.
Operator data entry for the desired temperature is stored in SLC
integer file N7:21.
Data Entry Screen (Screen #40)
The Alarm Data Entry Screen allows the operator to trigger Alarm Screen
#60. When the operator enters a value of 60, the value is loaded into the
DTAM Plus Advisor register which triggers the alarm. The Advisor register
file is the SLC register file N7:0. The alarm acknowledge bit is N7:1/1. The
alarm acknowledge bit is set when the alarm is acknowledged. The SLC
ladder program uses this bit to move the value 0 into the alarm register and
clear the alarm screen.
Data Display Screen (Screen #22)
Screen #22 simulates the tank fluid level in both gallons and percent full.
The gallons register reads the contents of SLC integer file N7:22.
The percent full register reads the contents of SLC integer file N7:23.
