We hear in the news every day
about skyrocketing gasoline prices. As
fuel prices continue to soar, we also hear
of new ways people are conserving.
More people are telecommuting more
often to save money. Others are finding
more fuel efficient modes of transportation. They take the bus or train more
often. Others choose to carpool. Many
are buying alternative fuel vehicles.
Whether it’s biodiesel or electric energy,
if it reduces the amount of gasoline
being used, we’re all becoming more
open to the idea of not only saving
money but also saving our energy
resources. In what ways are you conserving?
Do any of your energy-saving
applications use AutomationDirect
products? We’d love to hear about
them. Drop us a line explaining your
industrial processes. You never know,
your story just might find its way onto
the pages of a future issue of
Automation NOTEBOOK.
This issue of NOTEBOOK is
filled with interesting articles and bits
of information that just might inspire
you to try something differently. We
have lots of information regarding our
newest products. An informative application story shows us how a theater
group in Chicago used pneumatic
cylinders to tell their story. Our Student
Spotlight section provides details about
a group of kids using our products to
help capture energy from the sun.
There’s a lot more, including the
ever-popular Breakroom. Test your wits

Trends in Automation
Upgrading Pump
Stations with PLCs:
When relays and
timer circuits get old,
they cause problems.
Replacing them with
PLCs keeps pumps
running smoothly.
with two motor starters. When the
pump is turned on, the first motor
starter is energized. Then, after a time
delay, the second starter is energized.
Two types of timers were used in
the control logic, pneumatic and
electronic. As the pneumatic timers
aged, they lost their timing repeatability.
It was common to hear the motor strain
while waiting for the second starter to
pull in.
FIgure 2, Before replacement
By Henry Palechek
Process Control Supervisor
O
ne of the most important
jobs of a water distribution
system is to reliably deliver
water to its customers. At our water
district in California, we had pumping
stations (Figure 1) with relay-based
controls that were more than 30 years
old, and the vintage of the controls
caused a definite reliability issue.
Figure 2: Before and after. The original relay-based system (above) was cluttered,
while the updated PLC-based controls are much cleaner.
Figure 1: Typical pumping station in the water
distribution system.
A typical pump station has three or
four pumps, each powered by 100 or
125 horsepower motors. Because of the
relatively large motor size, a part
winding motor starting system is used
10
Electronic timers were sometimes
even worse as their electrolytic
capacitors failed over time. When the
timers failed it was hard on the motor
because it was running on only one
starter until the overload tripped.
Personally, I’ve had to replace more of
the electronic timing relays than any
other device in the control circuit. I
thought it was time to upgrade the
pump controls and my company agreed,
so we decided to investigate alternatives.
Taking a Test Drive
We decided to do a pilot test on
two stations over a one-year period. We
replaced all the pneumatic and electrical
relays with DL05 PLCs from
AutomationDirect (Figure 2). The
PLCs were installed inside the motor
control center (MCC) buckets by our
in-house district electricians.
When the first pilot pump control
circuit was changed over to PLC
control, I set the delay time between the
activation of the two motor starters to
Automation Notebook
Summer 2011 Issue Twenty
0.5 seconds. Our control electrician
didn’t like the way the motor sounded,
so with one quick edit I set the timer to
0.4 seconds. We’ve never had to readjust
them since, and there’s no longer any
drift in the timing because the PLC is a
digital device.
We were concerned about how well
a PLC would hold up in the hot and
electrically noisy environment of an
MCC without cooling or a UPS, but
they have proven to be very robust. The
only failure we had was when a pump
control valve’s solenoid shorted out and
pulled an excessive amount of current.
Installing a fuse on the output solved
the problem. It should be noted that this
failure was our fault as we should have
installed an output fuse in the first
place.
We’ve since installed about 55
DL05 PLCs in our pumping stations,
one on each motor, with no reliability
issues in more than a decade of service.
Another advantage is the PLC
simplifies and enhances pump operation. A typical MCC had hundreds of
wires and dozens of relays (Figure 3) in
multiple buckets. In some cases the wire
numbers had fallen off over time, which
made troubleshooting very difficult. In
addition, the control logic only
provided one alarm pump timeout.
When a pump failed to start properly,
we were never sure why it had failed.
Now, the PLC is programmed so the
alarm can be reset by the operator; this
allows the pump to run, while maintaining failure information in the ladder
logic until the relevant area of the PLC
program is reset by the technician. This
gave us better flexibility in that a failed
pump can be returned to service without losing information vital to the troubleshooting process.
Another enhancement was to
expand the type of alarms sent back to
the central SCADA system. Now, the
alarm is defined three different ways:
pump fail, MCC fail, or pump control
valve fail. Before the upgrade, it was
common to have a few pumps fail to
start every week, but that’s no longer the
case.
Dealing with water hammer
In a water distribution system,
another area of concern is always water
hammer. Water hammer occurs when
water flow is halted abruptly, causing a
shock wave to travel through the line.
The force of the shock wave can cause
severe damage to critical control parts.
When a large pump is started in our
water pumping application, a pump
control valve is used on the output of
the pump to stop the possibility of a
water hammer (Figure 4).
The motor is started into a closed
pump control valve, and the valve is
allowed to open slowly. On shutdown,
the valve is closed slowly and a microswitch notifies the controller to turn off
the motor.
Here’s the sequence of events that
occur when a large pump is started:
1. The first motor starter pulls in
2. The second motor starter
pulls in
3. The pump control valve is
commanded to open
4. The pump control valve is
monitored to ensure it fully
opens
Every step is timed, and if there’s
any failure of the proper sequence the
motor is automatically turned off. The
pump is then held out of service until an
operator investigates the problem and
pushes a reset button.
The old system was a nightmare to
troubleshoot with its pneumatic and
electrical relays. Now, with the PLC,
finding the source of the problem is
much easier.
The PLCs have allowed us to solve
our control issues at a low cost with high
Continued, p. 13>>
Figure 3: The pile of parts left over when a PLC
replaced relays in an MCC.
The specific problem was that
when a pump failed to operate properly,
it would time out and couldn’t be
restarted until manually reset by an
operator. This reset cleared the timeout
relay logic, making it hard for the technician to troubleshoot the problem.

UL 508A Certified Panel Shops
By Tim Roberts,
AutomationDirect
S
everal member integrators in
AutomationDirect’s SIDirect
program have UL 508A certified
panel shops. Although many installations and applications do not specify
adherence to the UL 508A standard, it’s
good to be aware of the benefits of UL
listing for your control panels.
The UL listing mark on an industrial control panel provides evidence of
third party certification. It indicates that
the panel complies with an accepted and
specific safety standard. The listing
mark may be applied to a wide variety of
designs – from custom built to standardized designs with minor modifications.
While there is a confusing array of
electrical safety standards to contend
with, from the overarching national
electrical code (NEC) to specific areas
affecting control panels, such as NEC
Article 409, the most commonly referenced standard for industrial automation applications is UL 508A. Briefly
stated, UL 508A is the standard for
Safety of Industrial Control Panels. The
requirements specified in UL 508A are
in turn based on UL 508, the standard
for Safety of Industrial Control
Equipment, the NEC, NFPA 70 and
the standard for industrial machinery,
NFPA 79. One important service a certified UL 508A panel shop offers is to
apply these standards to customer applications and designs.
Out of the 38 system integration
firms in the USA that are members of
AutomationDirect’s SIDirect Program,
the following ten are UL 508A certified
Panel Shops.
Please contact them to find out
how they can meet your UL 508A panel
requirements.

Creative Control Solution
House Theatre
of Chicago
By Ryan Poethke
H
ouse Theatre of Chicago’s
original-script production of
The Nutcracker demanded
moving, changing scenery that
magically transformed the set at the
push of a button. AutomationDirect’s
extensive line of pneumatic and
electrical components helped us realize
these design elements easily, elegantly,
and reliably.
The doors:
The set design consisted of five sets
of custom built French door units which
were completely freestanding. These
door units provided the “theatre-in-theround” entrances for the actors. At the
climax of the show, when young Clara’s
world is about to fall apart, scenic
designer Collette Pollard envisioned the
16
world physically cracking and beginning
to come apart.
Using AutomationDirect’s singleacting pneumatic cylinders, the “door
toppers,” situated above the doors, pivoted from one side, pushed up by the
cylinder.
The cylinders were embedded in
the vertical doorframe posts. The frames
were constructed of 2” square steel box
tube to provide a hollow space for the
cylinders, and then cased in wood to
provide the proper dimensions and
appearance.
To prevent binding, the cylinder
was topped with a plastic ball which
allowed the end to slide as the cylinder
extended. The air line ran down the
frame and out to the control panel
upstage.
The tree:
The closing scene of Nutcracker
called for a small Christmas tree to
magically grow from the stage on
command. The design team wanted a
Automation Notebook
Summer 2011 Issue Twenty
tree that grew from nothing to approximately 18 inches. The tree planter, filled
with fake snow, had a false bottom
which the tree punched through to
magically appear when desired. Our
“Charlie Brown Tree” was built from
various diameters of polyethylene tubing wrapped with soft iron wire and
covered with painted heatshrink tubing.
The hinges at the base of the branches
were simply short lengths of extension
spring which allowed the tree to collapse
into a piece of 1.5” PVC pipe.
The tree was pushed up through
the floor by a 1” bore, 18” stroke
double-acting cylinder. The doubleacting feature allowed the stage crew to
easily retract and reset the tree between
performances.
The cylinder was able to push the
tree around the 90-degree bend because
the tree’s “trunk” was also made of poly
tubing; flexible yet rigid enough to
withstand pushing by the cylinder.
There are three air lines attached to
the under-stage tree mechanism; one
each to extend and retract, as well as a
purge line that was used to blow the
fake snow out of the tree storage tube
before retraction. The purge line was
added after we found that the fake plastic snow which fell into the tube pre-
vented the tree from moving smoothly.
It is important to note that the tree itself
remained vertical and never “turned the
corner.” The horizontal portion contained only the travel of the cylinder
and the poly tubing “pushrod.”
The control panel:
The AutomationDirect three-way
pneumatic valves were operated by an
eight-way MIDI-to-relay card through
single-pole interposing relays. MIDI
control was chosen as it is a control protocol native to the audio world; since
the effects had to fire in time with sound
effects, it made sense to allow the audio
playback computer to control the actuation of the valves.
It might be noticed that even
though we have a double-acting cylinder for the tree, all eight valves are 3way, and not necessarily suited to controlling a double-acting cylinder. We
simply used two 3-way valves, one for
each side of the cylinder, to minimize air
loss around the seals of the cylinders.
Because we could not run our compressor during the show due to noise, our air
supply was limited. Use of the singleacting cylinders was limited to a rather
short time, and the tree’s cylinder did
not need air once it was extended or
www.automationnotebook.com
retracted. The purge line used to blow
the fake snow out from around the tree
was only used post-show, and thus we
were able to run the compressor as needed for additional air.
A large white cylinder was mounted to the left of the panel to serve as a
muffler; it silenced the sound of venting
air as the cylinders were extended and
retracted. It was built from 3” diameter
PVC pipe and fuzzy paint rollers with
their center tubes glued closed. This
forced the air through the nap of the
rollers and out through a grate on the
bottom of the pipe.
Our use of AutomationDirect’s
extensive line of pneumatic and electric
supplies and parts allowed House
Theatre to tell the tale of The
Nutcracker in ways that truly brought
the audience into the story. Without
support from AutomationDirect, House
Theatre would not have been able to
add this dimension of scenery movement and magic to our storytelling.

Temperature Control
PLC-based system
works where single
loop temperature
controllers fell short
By Tim Hanes,
AutomationDirect
Process Instrumentation Equipment
Product Engineer
I
n many applications, single loop
temperature controllers are
sufficient to provide control of
heating and cooling. But in some
applications, including the one detailed
in this article, closely coordinated
control among many temperature
control loops is needed. In those cases
and others, PLC-based temperature
control can be the best solution.
A meltblown machine, a melted
polymer extrusion machine used in
manufacturing nonwoven materials,
consists of four main components. An
extrusion system provides a steady
supply of molten polymer, and a heated
Figure 2, Example of Meltblown Die Assembly
spinbeam distributes the polymer into
an even sheet or web. A heated process
air system is used to attenuate or stretch
the fibers, and a vacuum system removes
the process air as the nonwoven web
is formed.
The spinbeam consists of a large
304 stainless steel die body block weigh-
Figure 1, Machine diagram.
18
ing approximately 8 tons, and heated by
72 1.1 kW electric cartridge heaters.
The heaters are paired into 36 zones
spaced on 4” intervals down the length
of the block.
On this machine, each of the
36 zones had a PT100 RTD
temperature sensor for feedback to that
zone’s single loop temperature
controller. An output from each
controller switched a pair of cartridge
heaters to maintain an average block
temperature around 425°F. Biasing
setpoints for each of the 36 individual
zone temperature controllers could be
entered by the operators of the machine
to adjust the temperature profile across
the length of the spinbeam.
Process air heated by a 320 kW
electric circulation heater is delivered by
a low pressure blower through large air
manifold assemblies. These assemblies
are constructed of 0.75” thick 304 stainless steel plate attached to the die body
using 28 12mm grade-8 bolts.
Varying Rates of Thermal Expansion
Thermal expansion of metal as it is
heated is normally not a problem if all
assembled parts expand at the same rate,
or if clearances with tolerances down to
the thousandths of an inch aren’t
required. But in this case, there were
Automation Notebook
Summer 2011 Issue Twenty
However, due to their complex shape
and space limitations, this solution was
cost prohibitive.
A better solution was an improved
automation system in the form of a PLC
and a Human Machine Interface
(HMI). Historically, PLCs were used for
discrete control applications, but today’s
powerful PLCs have greatly expanded
capabilities, particularly in the area of
analog monitoring and closed loop
control. These capabilities are provided
in compact and low cost controllers
featuring ease-of-use and a high degree
of connectivity.
On the meltblown machine, the
individual single loop controllers were
eliminated and the 36 RTD zone
temperature sensors were wired to
Figure 3, Example HMI Screen
significantly different rates of thermal
expansion for the die body and the air
manifold. This was causing these two
components to separate to the extent
that the bolts connecting the assemblies
were shearing.
When the meltblown machine was
started, the solid die body was heated
with the cartridge heaters at a rate of 2°
per minute. The air manifold assemblies
were heated only by the pre-heated
process air, and were thus increasing in
temperature at a rate of about 1° per
minute. With the two different heating
rates, it didn’t take long to develop a
significant temperature differential
between the die body and the air
manifold assemblies.
Because the solid stainless steel die
body was more efficient at conducting
heat than the hollow air manifolds, it
could expand in length by as much as
1% (or 1.4 inches) before the air
manifolds could expand. Something had
to give, and in this case it was often one
or more of the 28 bolts attaching the air
manifold assemblies to the sides of
the spinbeam.
The workaround solution was
continuous intervention from the
machine operators to monitor the die
body and air manifold temperatures,
and to adjust the temperature setpoints
on the 36 individual controllers as
Figure 4, Example Bicomponent Meltblown Machine
required. A better solution was needed,
one that replaced constant operator
attention with automated control.
The Power of the PLC
After analysis and process trials,
it was determined that the system
could handle a maximum temperature
differential of about 50°F between the
die body and the air manifolds without
shearing the bolts.
One possible solution to maintain a
maximum temperature differential was
to install heaters and additional controls
on the air manifold assemblies.

individual analog inputs at the PLC.
Also, temperature sensors were added to
monitor the incoming temperature of
the pre-heated process air entering the
air manifolds.
Using the PLC’s internal math
functions, the 36 die body zone
temperatures are averaged and
compared to the incoming air
temperature in the air manifolds. Based
on
the

differential, the PLC automatically

ramps the setpoints of the die body
zones to individually control each zone’s
pair of cartridge heaters. Specifically, the
PLC determines the correct setpoint for
each of 36 PID control loops. Each loop
reads an RTD input as the process
variable, and uses the internally derived
setpoint to modulate a control variable
analog output to control the heaters.
This PLC-based control solution
allows the machine to automatically
heat at a rate that is compatible with the
thermal expansion of the different
components. The bolt shearing problem
was solved, and the need for constant
operator intervention was eliminated.
In addition, pre-programmed
biased setpoint temperature profiles in
the PLC can now be automatically used
as required, eliminating the need for
machine operators to enter separate
biasing setpoints in the individual single
loop controllers.
In addition to the improved
control functionality, the PLC
continuously provides and trends
valuable data to the HMI, such as the
process variable, the setpoint including
any biasing, and the loop output control
variable. Alarm points and conditions,
either globally or for each loop, can also
be viewed at the HMI. Touch screen
HMI inputs allow changes depending
on different conditions such as the
polymer type.
Prior to the use of PLC-based
control, constant operator intervention
was required to provide safeguards
against damage and to manually track
various process conditions. By introducing PLC-based control, possible
machine damage due to varying rates of
thermal expansion has been eliminated,
and valuable insight provided by
tracking and trending data that wasn’t
readily available from the single
loop controllers.
For complex temperature control
applications with different heating or
cooling profiles, PLC-based control
offers a versatile, powerful and costeffective solution. When paired with a
touch screen HMI, additional process
data can be viewed and analyzed, with
adjustments to improve operations
easily entered through the touch screen.

Variable Frequency Drives
Top 10
Tips: Specifying VFDs
(Part one of a
two-part series)
By Joe Kimbrell,
AutomationDirect
Drives, Motors, and Motion Control
Product Manager
V
ariable frequency drives — or
VFDs — can reduce energy
consumption, improve realtime control, and lengthen motor life;
selecting the right one for your application requires asking the correct
questions. Here are some expert tips to
consider.
Determine if a VFD is right for your
application.
The primary function of a variable
frequency drive is to vary the speed of a
three-phase ac induction motor. VFDs
also provide nonemergency start and
stop control, acceleration and deceleration, and overload protection. In
addition, VFDs can reduce the amount
of motor startup inrush current by
accelerating the motor gradually. For
these reasons, VFDs are suitable for
conveyors, fans, and pumps that benefit
from reduced and controlled motor
operating speed.
A VFD converts incoming ac
power to dc, which is inverted back into
three-phase output power. Based on
speed setpoints, the VFD directly varies
the voltage and frequency of the inverted output power to control motor
speed. There is one caveat: Converting
ac power to a dc bus — and then back
to a simulated ac sine wave — can use
up to 4% of the power that would be
directly supplied to a motor if a VFD
24
were not used. For this reason, VFDs
may not be cost-effective for motors run
at full speed in normal operation. That
said, if a motor must output variable
speed part of the time, and full speed
only sometimes, a bypass contactor used
with a VFD can maximize efficiency.
Consider your reasons for choosing
a VFD.
Typical reasons for considering
VFDs include energy savings,
controlled starting current, adjustable
operating speed and torque, controlled
stopping, and reverse operation. VFDs
cut energy consumption, especially with
centrifugal fan and pump loads.
Halving fan speed with a VFD lowers
the required horsepower by a factor of
eight, as fan power is proportional to
the cube of fan speed. Depending on
motor size, the energy savings could pay
for the cost of the VFD in less than
two years.
Using VFDs to operate fans and pumps can
significantly reduce energy consumption, because
they can tailor fan speed to the application. Fan
horsepower is proportional to the cube of fan
speed, so depending on motor size, energy savings
can compensate for the initial VFD purchase price
in less than two years.
Starting an ac motor across the line
requires starting current that can be
more than eight times the full load amps
(FLA) of the motor. Depending on
motor size, this could place a significant
drain on the power distribution system,
and the resulting voltage dip could
affect sensitive equipment. Using a
VFD can eliminate the voltage sag
associated with motor starting, and cut
motor starting current to reduce utility
demand charges.
Controlling starting current can
also extend motor life because acrossthe-line inrush current shortens life
expectancy of ac motors. Shortened life
cycles are particularly prominent in
applications that require frequent starting and stopping. VFDs substantially
reduce starting current, which extends
motor life, and minimizes the necessity
of motor rewinds.
The ability to vary operating speed
allows optimization of controlled
processes. Many VFDs allow remote
speed adjustment using a potentiometer, keypad, programmable logic
controller (PLC), or a process loop
controller. VFDs can also limit applied
torque to protect machinery and the
final product from damage.
Controlled stopping minimizes
product breakage or loss, as well as
equipment wear and tear. Because the
output phases can be switched electronically, VFDs also eliminate the need for
a reversing starter.
In addition to varying speeds, conveyor applications
typically require frequent starting and stopping.
Here, VFDs substantially reduce starting current to
extend motor life.
Select the proper size for the load.
When specifying VFD size and
power ratings, consider the operating
profile of the load it will drive. Will the
loading be constant or variable? Will
there be frequent starts and stops, or will
operation be continuous?
Consider both torque and peak
current. Obtain the highest peak
current under the worst operating
conditions. Check the motor Full Loads
Amps (FLA), which is located on the
motor’s nameplate. Note that if a motor
has been rewound, its FLA may be
higher than what’s indicated on the
nameplate.

Student Spotlight
The Future of Technology
Multi-mirror
Solar Array
Pleasantville High School
Pleasantville, Iowa
Provided by Chip McDaniel,
AutomationDirect
T
he Industrial Technology
students at Pleasantville High
School, in Pleasantville, Iowa
(southeast of Des Moines), have spent
the last three years building a multimirror solar array. Students from four
different technology classes have
contributed to the project over the three
year period; the AutoCAD and drafting
classes have helped design and
document the project, students in the
metals class performed much of the
welding and other fabrication tasks,
while students in the electronics class
have wired the machine and programmed the PLC. Instructor Frank
Vanderpool has been the teacher and
mentor who has championed the project
from its inception.
Sunlight is focused on a solar heat
exchanger positioned at the focal point
of the array. Water is warmed inside the
solar heat exchanger and then piped
indoors to a storage tank and radiator in
the nearby school shop where it is used
to heat the room, before circulating
back out to the solar heat exchanger to
be reheated.
The array consists of 96 one-footsquare mirrors positioned in a 10x10
array. The four mirrors in the center of
the array were omitted – because they
would always be occluded from the sun
by the solar exchanger. The array/
exchanger assembly is hinged and fitted
with wheels so that it can track the sun
with both altitude and azimuth motions
during each day. Two SureStep stepping
systems from AutomationDirect are
used to power these two axes of motion
via custom gearboxes designed and built
by the students.
Three simple photo-resistors are
used
as
sunlight
detectors to monitor
the position of the sun.
These photo-resistors
are enclosed in narrow
tubes, each with a slit
facing skyward. The
tubes are aimed ever so
slightly away from the
angle of the array - so
that when sunlight
reaches the bottom of
the tubes and excites
the photo-resistor, this
light signals a need to move the array to
keep alignment with the sun. One
Figure 1
detector is used to monitor the azimuth
axis, as the sun only moves in one direction across the sky each day, but two are
required for the altitude axis, as the sun
rises in the sky during the morning and
then falls in the afternoon.
A DirectLOGIC DL06 PLC
accepts discrete inputs from the sunlight
detectors and uses that information to
control the motion of the two stepper
systems via H0-CTRIO modules.
Additional logic in the PLC is used to
approximately position the array on
cloudy days so that if/when the clouds
dissipate the array is positioned to begin
its automatic operation. The PLC
controls the flow of water through the
www.automationnotebook.com
Figure 2
solar heat exchanger, and also controls a
pump inside the storage tank. Analog
inputs to the PLC allow the monitoring
of temperatures in four locations: at the
solar exchanger, at the point where the
water enters the building, inside the
storage tank, and the temperature of the
air inside the shop. Based on the various
temperatures, the PLC opens and closes
a valve to regulate the flow of water
through the loop, and most importantly
to stop the flow of water if the array is
not producing heat for some reason
(perhaps a cloud is blocking the
sunlight). The PLC also controls the
flow of water across a second heat
exchanger inside the storage tank in
order to maximize the heat transfer into
the storage tank when possible.
On a sunny day the results can be
more than impressive. In fact, on
several occasions, the water has boiled
and pressurized steam (measured at over
104°C) has caused problems such as
blown hoses, requiring the team to
reevaluate their design and method of
operation. Other issues involved the
inadvertent focusing of sunlight on a
wooden component which actually
caught on fire. Today, they have those
issues resolved and water temperatures
in the storage tank average about 165180°F even on moderately sunny days.
They routinely heat the shop exclusively
with solar energy throughout the day
and even for a few extra hours after the
sun goes down due to the thermal
energy stored in the tank.

Tech Brief Cont.
Variable Frequency Drives
Continued from, p. 24
Web printing presses, paper mills, and material converting applications require the precise speed regulation
of closed-loop control. For such cases, VFDs can be run in a closed-loop control mode. Elsewhere,
volts-per-Hertz (V/Hz) and sensorless (or open-loop vector) modes are used.
Don’t size the VFD according to
horsepower ratings. Instead, size the
VFD to the motor at its maximum
current requirements at peak torque
demand. The VFD must satisfy the
maximum demands placed on the
motor.
Consider the possibility that VFD
oversizing may be necessary. Some applications
experience
temporary
overload conditions because of impact
loading or starting requirements. Motor
performance is based on the amount of
current the VFD can produce. For example, a fully-loaded conveyor may require
extra breakaway torque, and consequent-
28
ly increased power from the VFD.
Many VFDs are designed to operate at 150% overload for 60 seconds. An
application that requires an overload
greater than 150%, or for longer than
60 seconds, requires an oversized VFD.
Altitude also influences VFD sizing,
because VFDs are air-cooled. Air thins
at high altitudes, which decreases its
cooling properties. Most VFDs are
designed to operate at 100% capacity up
to an altitude of 1,000 meters; beyond
that, the drive must be derated or oversized.
Be aware of braking requirements.
With moderate inertia loads, overvoltage during deceleration typically
won’t occur. For applications with highinertia loads, the VFD automatically
extends deceleration time. However, if a
heavy load must be quickly decelerated,
a dynamic braking resistor should be
used.
When motors decelerate, they act
as generators, and dynamic braking
allows the VFD to produce additional
braking or stopping torque. VFDs can
typically produce between 15 and 20%
braking torque without external components. When necessary, adding an
external braking resistor increases the
VFD’s braking control torque — to
quicken the deceleration of large inertia
loads and frequent start-stop cycles.
Determine I/O requirements.
Most VFDs can integrate into
control systems and processes. Motor
speed can be manually set by adjusting a
potentiometer or via the keypad
incorporated onto some VFDs. In
addition, virtually every VFD has some
I/O, and higher-end VFDs have
multiple I/Os and full-feature
communications ports; these can be
connected to controls to automate
motor-speed commands.

Student Spotlight Cont.
The Future of Technology
Most VFDs include several discrete
inputs and outputs, and at least one
analog input and one analog output.
Discrete inputs interface the VFD with
control devices such as pushbuttons,
selector switches, and PLC discrete
output modules. These signals are
typically used for functions such as
start/stop, forward/reverse, external
fault, preset speed selection, fault reset,
and PID enable/disable.
Discrete outputs can be transistor,
relay, or frequency pulse. Typically,
transistor outputs drive interfaces to
PLCs, motion controllers, pilot lights,
and auxiliary relays. Relay outputs
usually drive ac devices and other
equipment with its own ground point,
as the relay contacts isolate the external
equipment ground. The frequency
output is typically used to send a speed
reference signal to a PLC’s analog input,
or to another VFD running in follower
mode.
Typically, general-purpose outputs
of most VFDs are transistors.
Sometimes one or more relay outputs
are included for isolation of highercurrent devices. Frequency pulse
outputs are usually reserved for higherend VFDs.
Analog inputs are used to interface
the VFD with an external 0 to 10 VDC
or 4 to 20 mA signals. These signals can
represent a speed setpoint and/or closed
loop control feedback. An analog
output can be used as a feedforward to
provide setpoints for other VFDs so
other equipment will follow the master
VFD’s speed; otherwise, it can transmit
speed, torque, or current signals back to
a PLC or controller.
In Part Two, we will discuss selecting the proper control mode,
understanding your control profile
requirements, and more.

Future plans include switching the
plumbing over to steam fittings to take
advantage of the higher temperatures
and pressures which have already been
proven possible. Once they make that
leap, they even envision the potential to
run a small steam engine and produce
electricity from the system. Frank
Vanderpool is understandably proud of
what his students have achieved this far.
He reports, “The project has been, and
www.automationnotebook.com
continues to be, a wonderful learning
experience for all of the students
involved. The Multi-Mirror Solar Array
has become a symbol of cooperative

Don’t judge a driver by
the car!
As told by a tour guide at the Edison
& Ford Winter Estates Museum in Ft.
Myers, FL. The tour guide prefaced the
story by admitting that they couldn’t
verify it, so read it at your own risk!
It seems that Henry Ford was driving
on a remote road one day and happened
upon a stranded motorist with a brokendown car by the side of the road. As Mr.
Ford was a very competent engineer and
mechanic, he stopped to help. Without
being recognized (or introducing himself)
he rolled up his sleeves and spent more
than a few minutes diagnosing and
ultimately fixing the car’s engine. Once he
was finished, the impressed motorist
thanked him, and tried to offer him some
money for his time and effort. Mr. Ford
had to decline the offered money several
times saying, “No thank you, I have all the
money in the world – it’s simply not necessary.” The motorist apparently got somewhat annoyed by that repeated phrase,
and finally retorted “If you have all the
money in the world, then why are you
driving a Ford?”
If you are ever in the Ft. Myers, Florida
area, be sure to visit the Edison & Ford
Winter Estates. It’s a fascinating museum for
anyone interested in technology or

Do-more with Extra Communications Ports
Both Do-more CPUs have one serial port built in...
Need more serial ports?
Then check out the two SERIO modules. Previously only available for our
WinPLC product line, the serial port modules are a great addition to the
Do-more PLC line-up, and allow connection of a wide range of serial
devices, such as barcode scanners, scales, printers, modems, etc.

Now all your serial port setup is done through the
Do-More Designer Software, and if you should need to
replace a serial module, all of its parameters and setup
are stored in the CPU and are automatically loaded
and ready to go when the system powers up.
Need more Ethernet?
The first Ethernet port is a real bargain - it’s built into
the Do-more CPU (H2-DM1E) for just $100 more than
the non-Ethernet version (H2-DM1). But many applications require a second Ethernet port. Add an H2ECOM100 and connect your Do-more to segregated
networks for security or isolation.

Do-more with High-speed I/O
High-speed operations
The CTRIO and CTRIO2 modules are capable of a wide
variety of high-speed input and output operations. Many of
these operations take place on board the module, and are
independent of the scan time of your PLC. With flexible
4-channel input and separate output channel design, these
modules can satisfy high-speed counting, timing, and pulse
catch operations, along with high-speed discrete output or
several profile choices of pulse output operations. Not all
combinations of input functions and output functions are
possible within the resources of the module, but these
examples are typical of the applications for these modules.
291
$
NEW
299
The CTRIO and CTRIO2 modules can be configured for timing
functions based on both count or rate. Using a common configuration of a proximity switch sensing the teeth on a gear, the
module is able to calculate the velocity of the gear based on the
rate at which it receives counts. This value can be scaled within
the module to the engineering units required for the application.

High-speed counting
The CTRIO and CTRIO2 modules can be configured for
counting functions via the use of an encoder input. Up to two
quadrature encoders per CTRIO or CTRIO2 module are
available with connections for external reset, capture and inhibit
signals. In a simple cut-to-length application as shown below,
the encoder provides an input position reference for the material to the module. The module's high-speed outputs are wired
to the cutting device and to the clutch and/or braking device.
When the count from the encoder is equal to a pre-programmed
setpoint within the module, the high-speed outputs are activated
to stop and cut the material to a repeatable fixed length.
Additionally, the clutch/brake signal can be used as an inhibit
signal so counts are not accumulated while the material is being
cut.

Do-more with Precise Motion Control
Here’s why
There are many applications that require accurate
motion control, whether it’s precision position control or
tight speed regulation. The Do-more PLC, using the
high speed pulse output mode on the H2-CTRIO2
module, offers a superior control solution for closedloop motion control using SureServo servo systems, or
super-low-cost open-loop control with SureStep stepping
systems.
C-more Touch panel
Here’s how
When coupled with our
SureServo or SureStep motion
products, the resulting system is
extremely cost-effective.
A Do-more-based motion
control system is very wellsuited to applications such as:
• cut-to-length
• indexing tables or
conveyors
• and many more...

When coupled with a
Do-more CPU, you get:
• Faster pulse output frequency
(20-250 kHz)
• All configuration and motion profiles are
created in the Do-more Designer Software
and are stored in the CPU.
• The new “Axis Mode” instructions make
the code for your motion application a

Do-more with Remote I/O
Expand your I/O
Your local Do-more base can support 8 slots with as many as
32 I/O points in each. If you need more, you can install an
H2-ERM Remote I/O Master module in your local rack and
connect up to 16 remote I/O drops to expand your system.
Each of those 16 drops can provide hundreds more I/O
points. Need more? Add another H2-ERM, and connect 16
more. The Do-more CPUs can easily support thousands of
I/O points in a single system.
Locate I/O anywhere
DL205 (and DL405) remote I/O bases can each be located up
to 100 meters from the local base (or between Ethernet
switches) using EBC100 slave modules in the CPU slot. And
you have the flexibility of using Terminator rackless field I/O
drops as well.
To configure the ERM Master module and its slaves, use a PC running the ERM Workbench tool
(included with Do-more Designer software). The PC may be removed once the system is configured.

Flexible memory
management
capabilities
Strong data typing keeps your data
organized and protected. Data structures
automatically put the important details at
your fingertips.
Do-more can be as flexible as you need.
You can allocate all that data memory the
way you want it up to specific maximums
(no more rigid, predefined blocks of
wasted space!).
You can even define your custom memory
addresses and assign a data type of your
choice to improve the readability of your
program.

Information
Do-more supports a mix of stage and ladder for a best-of-both-worlds
approach that simplifies your code and makes troubleshooting easier.
Systems
Overview
Code can be broken up into Tasks and Programs:
• Tasks run when called; once, continuously, or at a user defined interval
• Programs run based on events
Programmable
Controllers
Tasks and Programs can be suspended to isolate code; stages can be
enabled or disabled.
Field I/O
Software
Get flexible, powerful control over your program code execution:
• Assign tasks or programs a fixed timeslice
• Define “yield points” for logical pauses
• Define priorities and order of execution
Project management
All project files are stored onboard the CPU - no
more searching for the old laptop with the most
recent copy of the program before you can fix
your machine!

You can also store your own files with the diskbased version of the project to aid future improvement or troubleshooting efforts. Store PDF, HTML or
virtually any file format (up to 10Mb) that you want
to keep with the project for
reference, or information
to assist your coworkers or
customers whenever they
open the project.
The Project Browser
makes it easy to select the
code block you want to
view or edit. System tasks
are predefined for many
common actions. Jump
directly to any part of your
code with just a few clicks.
The Do-more Designer
software even supports
“restore points”, which
are basically previous
versions of your program
that you saved at known
good operation. It’s nice
to know that you can
easily “roll back” your
project if your development goes awry.

Security for your code and your organization
Do-More Designer offers versatile password protection. Define multiple
users, assigning combinations of privileges from the available options. Use
code block password protection to allow customers to see enough of the
program to allow basic troubleshooting, while keeping your proprietary
code blocks hidden and secure.
External devices are relegated to “guest memory” areas; your program code
controls all access to actual I/O points. There are separate reserved areas
for Modbus and DL memory (DL memory is used for remote I/O racks).

Overview
Do-more H2 Series PLC
Modules
The Do-more H2 Series PLC is the newest
technology available that makes control
applications easier to implement. It uses
proven DirectLOGIC hardware as a platform for a powerful, flexible instruction
set, with a user-friendly programming
environment. The Do-more H2 Series
PLC utilizes most of the modules that are
part of the DL205 PLC family. You simply
install a Do-more H2 Series CPU module
into a DL205 base unit. However, the
specifications of the Do-more H2 Series
PLC are very different from the DL205
PLC. This overview covers the key
features of the Do-more H2 Series PLC.

Do-more H2 Series PLC Overview
Do-more PLC Instruction Set
This Instruction Set was developed specifically
for the new Do-more PLC; the ‘Instruction
Palette’ displays all available instructions.
You may see some similarities to the
DirectLOGIC PLC instruction set. However, the
instruction set for the Do-more PLC is more
advanced and intuitive. A good example is the
MATH instruction. Now, just one MATH
instruction covers all math operations and
also allows you to mix different data types in
one expression.
There are over 60 operators and functions
available with the MATH instruction.
Note: To learn more about the MATH instruction, please refer to the Do-more Designer
help topic ‘MATH – Math Expression’.

• Bit (0 or 1)
• Unsigned Byte (0 to 255)
• Signed Byte (-128 to 127)
• Unsigned Word (0 to 65,535)
• Signed Word (-32,768 to 32,767)
• Signed DWord (-2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647)
• Real (-3.4028235E+038 to 3.4028235E+038)
Note: As you can see, the BCD data type that is popular for the DirectLOGIC PLC is not
included in this list. However, you can use the BCDTO and TOBCD instructions if you
need to use the BCD data type with your application. Those instructions convert the data
between the BCD data type and the integer/real data types.

With the Do-more PLC, each memory address type has its own specific data type. Here
are some examples:

Enclosures
• V (Unsigned Word)
• N (Signed Word)
• D (Signed DWord)
• R (Real)
Tools
Pneumatics
Appendix
If you see address ‘V123’ in the ladder program, the memory address always stores an
Unsigned Word value. With this memory addressing method, it becomes easier to read
and write the ladder programs.
Although most of the memory addressing is decimal, the memory addresses DLX, DLY,
DLC and DLV use octal. These four memory addresses can be used to exchange data
with DirectLOGIC PLCs, which use octal memory addressing.

Do-more H2 Series PLC Overview
Array Addressing
The Do-more PLC supports array addressing with all memory addresses. V-memory
address must be used as the index for an array. With the Do-more PLC, the following
ladder program is valid.
Note: In this example, V0, V100, V101, V102 and V200 are indices.
Code-block, Program and Task
One Do-more project can consist of more than one ladder program. Each ladder
program is called a ‘Code-block’. The Do-more PLC supports two types of code-blocks,
Program and Task. Here are their definitions.
Program
Programs are code-blocks that run based on an event using the RUN instruction. They
can be self-terminating or never terminate. Stage programming is only supported inside
Program code-blocks.
Task
Tasks are code-blocks that are enabled and disabled using the ENTASK instruction. The
ENTASK instruction allows you to specify an interval to execute the task’s logic with a
millisecond resolution or to execute a single time on a leading edge input.
Stages
The Do-more PLC supports Stages. You can use Stages only in the Program code-blocks.
(They are not available in the Task code-blocks.) The Do-more PLC supports the following
instructions for Stage Programming1:
• SG (SG)
• JMP (Jump To Stage)2
• JMPI (Index Jump)
• SGSET (Enable Stage)
• SGRST (Disable Stage)
• SGRSTR (Disable Range of Stages)
• SGCONVRG (Converge Multiple Stages to SG)
• SGDIVRG (Jump to Multiple Stages)
1 There
is no ISG (Initial Stage) instruction for the Do-more PLC; the first stage in the
Program code-block becomes the initial stage automatically.
2 Many
asynchronous instructions can directly initiate a Jump to Stage.

To use the Do-more H2 Series PLC, you must have at least one base unit. A base unit
has an internal power supply that converts the input power (110-220VAC, 24VDC or
125VDC) to 5VDC in order to activate the modules installed in the base unit. For the
Do-more H2 Series PLC, 10 types of base units are available.

In the base unit, the far left slot is called the ‘CPU Slot’. It is used for a CPU or base
controller. Optional modules (discrete I/O modules, analog I/O modules, and specialty
modules) can be installed in the other slots. For instance, if you pick a base unit with nine
slots, you can install up to eight optional modules.

Module Placement and
I/O Usage Tables
There are very few I/O module placement
restrictions with the Do-more H2 Series
PLC family. In general, any mix of analog
and discrete module types can be used in
any local or Ethernet remote base.
However, specialty modules can’t be used
in the Ethernet remote base except for the
F2-08SIM. Reference the Module
Placement Restrictions table to the right for
the Do-more H2 Series PLC.
Analog I/O in the Ethernet remote
bases
When using an analog module in an
Ethernet remote base, the analog update
time to the CPU will be asynchronous to
the scan time. Critical analog I/O should
be located in the local base.
I/O point usage
The table to the right indicates the number
of I/O points consumed by each module.
Use this information to ensure you stay
within the maximum I/O count of the I/O
system you have chosen.

Power Budget
When determining the types and quantity
of I/O modules you will be using, it is
important to remember there is a defined
amount of power available from the base
power supply.
The chart on the next page indicates the
power supplied and used by each
module. The adjacent chart shows an
example of how to calculate the power
used by your particular system. These
charts should make it easy for you to
determine if the devices you have chosen
will operate within the power budget of
your system configuration.
If the I/O you have chosen for a base
exceeds the maximum power available
from the power supply, you may be able
to resolve the problem by using remote
I/O bases.
Base power supply specifications
The table below lists base power supply
specifications, including maximum inrush
current and maximum power consumed
from your power source.
Power budget example
The example on the right shows how to
calculate the power budget for the Domore PLC system. The examples are
constructed around a single 9-slot base
using the devices shown. It is recommended you construct a similar table for
your Do-more PLC system. Follow the
steps to the right to determine your power
budget.
1.Using a chart similar to the one below,
fill in column 2.
2.Using the tables on the next page, enter
the current supplied and used by each
device (columns 3 and 4). Devices
which fall into the "Other" category
(Row D) are devices such as the operator interface and the handheld
programmer, which also have power
requirements, but do not directly plug
into the base.
3.Add the current used by the system
devices (columns 3 and 4) starting with
the CPU slot and put the total in the
row labeled “Maximum Current
Required” (Row E).
Column 1
A
4.Subtract the row labeled “Maximum
Current Required” (Row E), from the
row labeled “Current Supplied” (Row
B). Place the difference in the row
labeled “Remaining Current Available”
(Row F).
5.If “Maximum Current Required” is
greater than “Current Supplied” in
either column 3 or 4, the power budget
will be exceeded. It will be unsafe to
use this configuration, and you will
need to restructure your I/O configuration. Note the auxiliary power supply
does not need to supply all the external
power. If you need more than the
300mA supplied, you can add an
external 24V power supply. This will
help keep you within your power
budget for external power.

Power Requirements
This section shows the amount of power
supplied by each of the base power
supplies and the amount of power
consumed by each module. The Power
Consumed charts list how much
INTERNAL power from each power source
is required for the modules. Use this information when calculating the power
budget for your system.
In addition to the internal power sources,
bases offer a 24 VDC auxiliary power
supply with external power connections.
This auxiliary power supply can power
external devices.
Use ZipLinks to reduce power
requirements
If your application requires a lot of relay
outputs, consider using the ZIPLink AC or
DC relay output modules ZL-RRL16-24-1
or ZL-RRL16-24-2. These modules can
switch high current (10A) loads without
putting a heavy load on your base power
budget. Refer to the Terminal Blocks and
Wiring Solutions section in this catalog for
more information.
This logo is placed next to the I/O
modules that are supported by the ZIPLink
connection systems. See the I/O module
specifications at the end of
this section.

NetEdit 3 Configuration Software
NetEdit 3 Configuration Software is
included in the free Do-more Designer
software. Use NetEdit 3 to configure the
ECOM modules for your network. Flexible
addressing allows you to use your choice
of protocols and identification methods.
Assign each module a number, a name or
both. You don’t have to use an IP address,
but you can if it’s necessary for your
network. NetEdit 3 uses two protocols for
PC-to-PLC communications: IPX and
TCP/IP. The NetEdit 3 screen displays all
identifiers and troubleshooting information for each module on the network. You
can use NetEdit 3 to adjust parameters for
PLC-to-PLC communications by clicking
on Advanced Settings. The network identifiers can also be changed from Do-more
Designer software.
Use Category 5 UTP cables which can be
run up to 100 meters between nodes. If
needed, use repeaters to extend distances
and expand the number of nodes.
Our HA-TADP (10/100Base-T) PC network
adapter card and Stride Ethernet switches
are compatible with the ECOM modules.

H2-ERM
<--->
Company
Information
Simple connections
The ERM connects to your control
network using Category 5 UTP cables for
cable runs up to 100 meters. Use
repeaters to extend distances and expand
the number of nodes.
The PLC, ERM and EBC slave modules
work together to update the remote I/O
points. These three scan cycles are occurring at the same time, but asynchronously. Critical I/O points that must be
monitored every scan are best placed in
the CPU base.
Software configuration
ERM Workbench is a software utility that
must be used to configure the ERM and
its remote Ethernet slaves. ERM workbench supports two methods of configuring the ERM I/O network:
• ERM Workbench PLC Wizard greatly
simplifies the configuration procedure
when a PLC is used as the CPU interface.
• ERM Workbench configures the I/O
network whether the CPU interface is a
PLC or WinPLC, and allows access to all
ERM I/O network parameters.
ERM Workbench Software
Networking ERMs with
other Ethernet devices
Overview
H2-ERM
The Ethernet Remote Master H2-ERM
connects a Do-more H2 Series PLC’s
local CPU base to slave I/O over a highspeed Ethernet link.
It is highly recommended that a dedicated Ethernet remote I/O network be
used for the ERM and its slaves. While
Ethernet networks can handle a large
number of data transactions, and
normally handle them very quickly, heavy
Ethernet traffic can adversely affect the
reliability of the slave I/O and the speed
of the I/O network. Ensure ERM networks,
multiple ERM networks and ECOM/office
networks are isolated from one another.

Overview
H2-CTRIO2
The H2-CTRIO and H2-CTRIO2
Counter I/O modules are designed to
accept high-speed pulse input signals for
counting or timing applications. These
modules also provide high-speed pulse
output signals for servo/stepper motor
control, monitoring and alarming as well
as other discrete control functions.
The CTRIO(2) module offers greater flexibility for applications which call for
precise counting or timing based on
input events or for high speed control
output applications. It can also be used
for applications that call for a combination of both high-speed input and highspeed output control functions.
The CTRIO(2) module has its own microprocessor and operates asynchronously
with respect to the CPU. Therefore, the
response time of the on-board outputs is
based on the module’s scan time, not the
CPU’s scan time.

Use the diagrams below to make sure the
Do-more H2 Series PLC system can be
installed in your application. To ensure
proper airflow for cooling purposes,
bases must be mounted horizontally. It is
important to check these dimensions
against the conditions required for your
application. For example, it is recommended that approximately 3" of space is
left in front PLC surface for ease of access
and cable clearances. Also, check the
installation guidelines for recommended
cabinet clearances.

Wiring Solutions
Wiring Solutions using the ZIPLink Wiring System
ZIPLinks simplify the normally tedious process of wiring between
devices by utilizing prewired cables and DIN rail mount
connector modules. It's as simple as plugging in a cable
connector at either end or terminating wires at only one end.
Prewired cables keep installation clean and efficient, using half
the space at a fraction of the cost of standard terminal blocks.
There are several wiring solutions available when using the
ZIPLink System ranging from PLC I/O-to-Z
ZIPLink Connector
Modules that are ready for field termination, options for
connecting to third party devices, GS, DuraPulse and SureServo
Drives, and specialty relay, transorb and communications
modules. Pre-printed I/O-specific adhesive label strips for quick
marking of ZIPLink modules are provided with ZIPLink cables.
See the following solutions to help determine the best ZIPLink
system for your application.
Solution 1: Do-more H2 Series PLC to ZIPLink
Connector Modules
Using the PLC I/O Modules to ZIPLink Connector
Modules selector tables located in this section,
1. Locate your I/O module/PLC.
2. Select a ZIPLink Module.
3. Select a corresponding ZIPLink Cable.
Solution 2: Do-more H2 Series PLC to 3rd Party
Devices
Using the I/O Modules to 3rd Party Devices selector tables
located in this section,
1. Locate your PLC I/O module.
2. Select a ZIPLink Pigtail Cable that is compatible
with your 3rd party device.
Solution 3: GS Series and DuraPulse Drives
Communication Cables
Using the Drives Communication selector tables located in
this section,
1. Locate your Drive and type of communications.
2. Select a ZIPLink cable and other associated hardware.
When looking for quick and easy I/O-to-field termination, a ZIPLink
connector module used in conjunction with a prewired ZIPLink cable,
consisting of an I/O terminal block at one end and a multi-pin
connector at the other end, is the best solution.
When wanting to connect I/O to another device within close proximity
of the I/O modules, no extra terminal blocks are necessary when using
the ZIPLink Pigtail Cables. ZIPLink Pigtail Cables are prewired to an I/O
terminal block with color-coded pigtail with soldered-tip wires on the
other end.
Need to communicate via Modbus RTU to a drive or a
network of drives?
ZIPLink cables are available in a wide range of
configurations for connecting to PLCs and SureServo,
SureStep, Stellar Soft Starter and AC drives. Add a ZIPLink
communications module to quickly and easily set up a
multi-device network.
