1.2 Features and Capabilities

Connections

Digital Inputs, Analog Inputs and Digital outputs can be wired to Genie. Along with the physical connections user can also use soft connections (special functions) like Counter, Timer, Time switch (clock), Auxiliary relays, analog comparators (only for the DC model), and soft text message blocks as a part of the program. All types of automation parameters are provided, so no extra device needs to be connected to Genie. Genie alone is sufficient for most of the automation and control applications.

Enter program

Genie program is nothing but a logical connection of Genie parameters like inputs, outputs, special functions etc. User can enter program with the keypad on

Genie or he can make use of G-SOFT, which runs on a PC, and is much easier to use. The programs can be changed as per the application thus it provides more Flexibility, Versatility.

Debugging

While executing (running) the Programs on Genie, the programs and the parameters can be viewed at the run time. Some of the parameters can even be changed during the “run” (provided the run-time lock is not activated). Hence program development speed can be increased.

Transfer

Genie provides facility to transfer the programs in following ways.

• PC>Device

• Device< PC

• Device > Card

• Card > Device

Programs can be transferred to PC or Memory card and saved. Thus no need to enter same program again and again.

LC display

4 X 12 lines LC display is provided on Genie. On LC display, the programs can be viewed and edited. At the run time input output status can be observed which helps in monitoring the application.

Supply flexibility

AC as well as DC models are available which operate on a wide voltage band.

Select a proper model by referring to the Technical specifications.

Connecting more number of inputs and outputs

With the extension module number of inputs and outputs can be increased.

Maximum three Extension Modules can be used with one Genie. So it is easy to configure the systems that require more I/Os.

CHAPTER 2

Installation of Genie unit

In order to increase the reliability of the system and extract maximum performance of its functions, this section describes the precautions for installation of the system.

2.1 General Safety Requirements

Danger

• Install a safety circuit external to the PLC that keeps the entire system safe even when there are problems with the external power supply or the PLC module, otherwise, trouble could result from erroneous output or operation.

• Outside the PLC construct mechanical damage preventing interlock circuits such as emergency stop, protective circuits, upper/lower limit switches and interlocking forward/reverse operations

• The output components of the PLC, regardless it is relay, transistor are possible to cause permanent ON or OFF and resulting in serious incident, thus protective additional external circuit or mechanisms are necessary for the output points with major safety consideration.

• Do not touch the PLC‘s conductive parts while power is on. Doing so could result in a shock or malfunctioning of device.

Caution

• Do not bunch the control wires or communication cables with the main circuit or power lines. They should be installed 100 mm (4 inches) or more away from each other. Not doing so could result in noise coupling on communication signals.

• Fluctuations or variations in the mains supply voltage should not exceed the tolerance thresholds stated in the technical characteristics, as they may cause operating failures.

• Communication cable should always be shielded twisted pair cable.

• Serial interface cable and memory card is provided to use only for Genie.

• Power off the device before connecting the communication cable and memory card.

General Precautions during Wiring

The precautions on the connection of power cables are described below.

1) Power Supply Wiring

• When there is lot of noise on the power lines it is advised to connect

isolation transformer to the power supply of the PLC. Though sufficient care

has been taken within the PLC.

• While using the DC model, run the 24 VDC input line away from the 100 V

AC and 200 V AC lines.

2) Wiring of I/O

• Run the input lines and output lines away from each other.

• When the output lines cannot be run away from the power supply

lines or the input lines use batch-shielded cable and earth it.

Summary of advice on installation

• Power down the device

• Take all necessary measures to avoid unwanted relay triggering.

• Check to ensure that no voltage is present.

• Make the necessary ground and short circuit connections.

• Always follow the instructions stated in this user's guide.

• Remember, only qualified personnel are authorized to implement the Genie.

• Automation and control devices must be installed so that they are protected

against any risk of involuntary actuation.

• It is essential to ensure that all control system connections meet applicable.

safety standards

• Fluctuations or variations in the mains supply voltage should not exceed the

tolerance thresholds stated in the technical characteristics, as they may cause.

operating failures and lead to potentially dangerous situations

• Take care to meet the standards that apply to emergency stop systems in

order to avoid potentially dangerous situations. Ensure that releasing the

emergency stop system does not cause the automated system to suddenly

restart.

• Take all necessary measures to ensure that an application interrupted by a

drop or a break in the supply voltage can continue correctly and also ensure.

that no dangerous states, no matter how brief, may occur.

If extension module is connected then communication between Base and

Extension module should preferably be with shielded twisted pair cable.

CHAPTER 3

G-SOFT

3.1 Introduction

G-SOFT Ver.5.x is one of the accessories of Genie. It has to be installed on a PC and it simplifies the task of program development. Of course, user can enter, debug and run the programs directly on Genie, but G-SOFT will provide an easy way and more flexibility.

G-SOFT 5.x provides following facilities.

• Entering the program in two modes:

• In Full screen mode

• In Genie mode

• Saving programs

• Debugging the Programs.

• Running the programs in Genie mode

• Printing programs

• Simulation: with Genie and only on PC

• Transferring programs.

3.2 Installing GSOFT 5.x on PC

To install G-SOFT, the PC needs to have following configuration:

• Color monitor with minimum resolution 1024 X 768

• Processor: Pentium II and above OR Equivalent

• Free Hard disk: minimum 20 MB

• RAM: 32 MB

• CD Drive for installation of G-SOFT

Installation procedure:

Auto Run facility is provided. Where PC’s don’t use Auto run

Insert a CD in CD Drive.

Go in the respective directory.

Click on “Set up” on the CD.

Software will get installed automatically. It will also place an icon on the desktop its own.

You can start G-SOFT either from the desktop or from “Start – Programs – G-

SOFT Group— G-SOFT 5.x”.

For removing G-SOFT from your PC use “Uninstall” from the “Start – Programs –

G-SOFT Group-Uninstall”.

3.3 Features of G-SOFT

Entering the Program: Ladder Logic is the basis for programming the application. G-SOFT provides a user-friendly interface wherein the user only has to select contact type and contact number and place it at proper place. Most of the time contacts will get connected automatically. User can enter comments for better readability and for reference later.

Saving programs: G-SOFT allows user to save individual programs on the PC.

Debugging: G-SOFT is very powerful in error handling. It displays a variety of errors at the time of program entry itself so that user can make corrections.

Running the programs on PC: User can simulate the program on PC. User can use buttons provided on the screen to simulate the input connections. Scroll bar can be used to simulate Analog input. The actuation/ de-actuation of the relays can be monitored on the screen.

Printing: User can take print outs of programs in two different formats.

Simulation with Genie unit: User can connect Genie unit to PC using a serial cable and program can be run through PC. In this mode the PC acts as a master and the inputs are taken from Genie and outputs are sent to Genie unit (and the extension modules, if connected). This mode is useful in debugging the entire system since the actual I/Os are used.

Transferring program: Programs can be transferred from PC to Device and vice versa using serial cable. This saves the program entering time on Genie.

3.4 Special Functions

In addition to the inputs and outputs Genie has five types of special functions: timers, counters, time switch (clock), compare counters and analog functions.

Each special function has a specific notation and is associated with certain preset parameters which user must set at the time of entering the programs.

3.4.1 Timers

The Timer function is used to delay, prolong and control actions after a set period of time. It has a Reset input, a Trigger input and an output that indicates time-out.

Notation

There are 16 timers available in AC and DC models of 250 lines. Timers can be used as contact as well as coil. In Genie T stands for Timer and timer numbers are represented from 1 to 16. Thus T8 represents the eighth timer. We refer the value of the nth timer as Tn.

Timer used as Contact

. Normally open (Tn): In this type of contact TRUE value is valid.

. Normally closed. (tn): In this type of contact FALSE value is valid.

Timer used as Coil

. Trigger Input (TTn): In timer functions trigger is required to start timer operation (Timer cycle).

. Reset Input (RTn): Reset input is used to reset the current Timer value to zero. The Trigger contact is disabled and the block is ready for a new timer cycle.

Note: If Reset and trigger become true simultaneously then the relay is reset and the timer does not run.

Timing

Genie allows different timing ranges.

S - Time value is specified in seconds

Maximum time is 999.9 S

Resolution: 100 ms

M: S - Time value is specified in minutes: seconds

Maximum time is 99.59 M

Resolution: 1s

H: M - Time value is specified in hours: minutes

Maximum time is 99.99 H

Resolution is 1min

Note: If Time value = 0 and Trigger is given then unpredictable operation may take place, this condition is shown as Program Error during program entry.

Locking: Genie provides facility to "Lock" the parameters. This means if a parameter is locked, user cannot change the values at the RUN time.

In Unlocked mode, effect of changing the time value in "RUN" Mode is as follows:

Case 1

Time of timing relay is 000.0, trigger not received, and no reset

Set time: 030.0 s

Enter and store new time value: 020.0 s

Result --- Relay switches at 020.0S after next trigger signal is received.

Case 2

Trigger input is given to Timer; no reset, time is running.

Set time:

Current Time:

030.0 s

010.0 s

Enter and store new time value: 020.0S

Result --- Relay switches at 020.0S

Case 3

Trigger input is given to Timer; time has already elapsed, reset not received.

Set Time: 060.0 s

Current Time: 060.0 s

Enter and store new time value: 080.0 s

Result: Timer output remains active, 080.0 s is used for next timer cycle.

Timer Functions

There are 4 types of Timer functions. Each type triggers a specific kind of operation used to handle all possible cases in an application.

A: On Delay Timer: After receiving the trigger signal, the relay contact operates after delay time (make contact closes / break contact opens after the delay).

B: OFF Delay Timer: After receiving the trigger signal, the relay contact operates immediately (make contact closes / break contact opens). It remains operated as long as the trigger input is present. The timer starts when it detects that the trigger input is removed. The relay contact then switches after the set time has expired (make contact opens / break contact closes).

C: Single Pulse Timer: After receiving the trigger signal, the make contact closes (or break contact opens) for the specified time, independently of trigger present or not.

D: Symmetric/Asymmetric ON/OFF timer: The relay contact opens and closes for the set time duration (pulse generator). The specified time duration value may be symmetric or asymmetric.

Application:

Delay to start a conveyor belt after a delay to ensure that the sensor is already active before the conveyor belt starts moving.

Application

To ensure that motors, conveyor belts or ventilators etc.continue to function for a specified time after switching off the control signal.

Application:

Ringing School Bell for specified time.

D: Symmetric/Asymmetric timer:

Application:

Flashing of warning lamps, decorative lighting etc.

3.4.2 Counters

The Counter function is used to count pulses. It has one "Count" input that changes the counter value on each change from off-to-on. The "Direction" input is to select the UP / DOWN mode. Reset input to make the counter equal to zero in up counting mode and equal to preset value in down counting mode.

Counters can be configured to be Retentive so that count can persist after power supply interruptions.

Notation: There are 16 Counter functions available in both models.

Counters can be used as contact as well as coil. In Genie Cn is written for nth counter. C stands for Counter and n is for counter number. Thus C7 represents seventh counter.

Counter used as Contact:

Normally open (C1 to C16): The contact is closed when the counter reaches

the preset value.

Normally closed (c1 to c16): The contact is closed until the counter has

reached its preset value.

Counter used as Coil:

Count Input (CC1 to CC16): The count input is used for changing the counter value. Each time the coil is triggered, the counter increments or decrements by 1, depending on the counting direction.

Representation example: I1----------CC1.

Direction input (DC1 to DC16): Direction input decides counter mode, Up /

Down. If this coil is active, the counter counts down. The counter counts up if this coil is not active or is not used in the program (unconnected).

Representation example: I2----------DC1.

Reset Input (RC1 to RC16): Reset input is used to reset the current counter value to zero in up counting mode and to set the counter to the preset value in the down counting mode.

Representation example: I1-------------RC1

Note: Both Count and direction inputs are required for down counting.

Counter value:

Genie allows maximum count value equal to 9999.

Locking: If the parameters are locked then user cannot change the values at

RUN time. If the counter value is unlocked then user can change the value at

RUN time.

3.4.3 Time Switch (Clock)

The Time switch (Clock) function block is used to validate time slots during which actions can be performed. It acts just like a programmable weekly timer

Notation: There are

16 Time switch (clock) functions available in both models.

Time switch (clock) can be used only as contact. In Genie:

n

- is written for nth Time switch (clock).

stands for Time switch (clock) and n are for number.

Sixteenth Time switch (clock).

Time switch (clock) used as Contact

1. Normally open ( n): The contact is closed when the Clock is in an enabled period.

2. Normally closed. (Lower case n): The contact is closed when the Clock is not in an enabled period.

Time settings:

Start Day - For the range, any valid start day (Sunday to Saturday) can be specified.

End day - For the range, any valid end day (Sunday to Saturday) is specified. If only one day is to be chosen, this field can be left blank.

Start Time - For the range, a start operating time (00:00 to 23:59) is specified.

Stop Time - For the range, a stop operating time (00:00 to 23:59) is specified.

Block Number -

Sixteen blocks can be used, numbered from 1 to 16 . This parameter cannot be changed in the screen shown above. It is chosen when the block is entered in the diagram line.

Locking: If the parameters are locked then user cannot change the values at

RUN time.

Example 1

Enter timing - Block 1 From Monday to Friday On Time 6:30 Off time 9:30

Block 2 from Monday to Friday On time 17:00 Off time 22:30

Make A (1) B (2)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3.4.4 Analog Compare: (Used only for G8DDT8)

The analog compare blocks can be used only with the following Genie model:

G8DDT8. This product works on 12 to 24 V DC supply voltage. There are two analog inputs, marked as V1 and V2.

Notation

There are 12 Analog comparator blocks available. Analog compare can be used as contact only. "An" is referred to as the nth analog compare. The "A" stands for

Analog compare and n is for analog-compare number. Thus A12 represents twelfth analog compare.

Analog compare used as Contact

.

Normally open (A1 to A12): In this type of contact TRUE value is valid.

.

Normally closed (a1 to a12): In this type of contact FALSE value is valid.

Analog voltage

Analog voltage ranging from 0 to10 V DC can be given to each input: I7 and I8.

Analog voltage of one input can be compared with either the voltage of the other input or with a reference voltage.

Locking

Genie provides facility to lock the parameters. If the parameters are locked then user cannot change the values at RUN time.

Example

A1 = V1 > 6V

3.4.5 Compare Counter Block

Compare counter block is provided to compare any counter value with any other counter value or with absolute value.

This block can only be used as input only i.e. its position in the ladder diagram should be in the contact elements rather than coil elements.

This block saves on the memory of the PLC and also helps increase the scan time and helps in utilizing the counter blocks provided more efficiently.

The parameters for this function block can be entered or accessed when entering the contact that represents the compare counter input in the ladder diagram line.

Also 'PARAMETER' menu can be used to access or change the preset values of the function block.

Notation: There are 16 Compare Counter functions available in both models.

This block can be used as contact. In Genie Pn is written for nth compare block.

P stands for Compare Counter and n is for number. Thus P7 represents seventh compare block

.

Compare Block used as contact:

Normally open (P1 to P16): The contact is closed when the compare counter

condition is satisfied.

Normally closed (p1 to p16): The contact is closed when the compare counter

condition is not satisfied.

3.4.6. Soft message block:

Soft message block is provided so that text message can be displayed in RUN

MODE when its input is triggered.

Click on "Properties" menu line from the pop up menu for a soft text message block, then this window will appear. This window allows displaying a text message with the run time property as well the preset value and current value of any of the special function block selected.

With a 0 to 1 transition of the signal at input, the display outputs your configured message text in RUN mode.

If several message text functions were triggered, the message with highest priority is displayed. This also implies that a new message text is only displayed if its priority is higher than that of previously enabled message texts.

You can change between the display in RUN mode and message text by means of arrow buttons.

Simulation Mode

In simulation mode, the message texts are displayed in a small window

Description of function

Notation: There are 16 soft messages available in both models

Soft message can be used only as coil.

In Genie “X” stands for soft message box and soft message box nos. are represented from 1 to 16.

Message settings:

When a message block is selected following window appears .

To insert parameters of special function click on Insert embedded data following window appears

Select the special function block, its no and data option for example timer has preset time & current time as the data option

Press ok, settings will be saved in the soft message block.

Message is displayed when its condition is true.

User can enter upto 36 characters for each message text & messages are assigned priority in the ascending order from X1 to X16.

3.4.7 Device Simulator

This mode of G-SOFT, which can be activated through the options menu on the toolbar and then selecting Device Simulator, is very useful in understanding how the Genie works in stand-alone mode. The user interface of device simulator is as shown in following figure.

The PC depicts the genie layout of LCD display and the keyboard .All menus and commands are very similar to genie unit. In this mode user can perform all tasks like program entry, debug and execution. It does not require a physical connection to genie unit. All inputs and outputs are simulated on the PC.

The device simulator gives the user, the feel of working with the device.

This mode helps the user to learn to edit as well as run the program like the device. In this mode the ladder entered in the G-Soft will be picked up and will be shown on the device simulation mode. And vise versa the ladder entered in the device simulator mode can be viewed in the G-Soft.

The program is entered in the same way as it is edited in the device.

Editing in the device, sequence of screen as it appears in simulation mode is same as it appears on the device. The keys on the device are operated using the mouse and its function is same as in the device. Inputs can be given and the output status, the parameters as it appears in the device can be seen.

6.1.1 Entering programs

If you choose to enter or edit a program directly on Genie unit or in the Genie mode of G-Soft, you can select the "Edit" option from the "Program" submenu.

Description of the keys

The 8 keys located on the front of the Genie are used to configure, program and control the application.

They perform the following actions.

DEL Key: Press this key to delete a program element, or a blank line, if the cursor is located in the 1st (left most) column.

ALT Key: Press this key for selecting/exiting any parameter in the edit mode and to show either the Parameters or Program while the program is running. This feature is useful for debugging.

OK Key: Press this key to insert a program line, when cursor is blinking in the first column. During the parameter entry while editing this key saves the changes and proceeds to next parameter. In RUN mode, this key can be used to select one of the 3 displays. This also selects/deselects links .

ESC Key: Press this key to exit the menu or a selection. During the parameter entry it proceeds to next parameter without saving the changes.

ARROW keys: On the program editor screen, the arrow keys are used to move up, left, down and right. The position on screen is shown by a cursor or respective blinking text.

On the parameter screen, left / right arrow moves the cursor to Next / previous position, and up / down keys increment / decrement the value.

AUXILIARY Keys (Z-Keys): Arrow keys are called auxiliary keys in Run mode.

They are used as push buttons to get signals from user. If user goes in PAR

(parameter mode) or in PRG (program mode) in RUN mode, then these keys are not available as z-keys. At that time these keys are used as arrow keys.

The format of Program is:

Maximum 250 lines of program

• Each line will have up to 3 contact elements and one coil element.

Unless the contact is joined to previous or next line using the vertical joining

links, a coil is a must in every line.

BATCH BOTTLE COUNTING

Requirement

In bottle counting applications, an indication is required if particular no. of bottles are counted. These indications are to be given at different times when some batch of bottles is completed.

Genie Solution

To count bottles, the sensor input, which counts the bottles, has to be given to

Genie.

Once the sensor input is given to Genie, the counting is carried according to the ladder. The counter value increments on every input sensed.

The same counter is used to compare with three other counter values. If user wants to show some lamp indication if counting is over up to 1000, 3000 & 5000, then he just can compare those values in the compare counter block & make the corresponding output ON to show some indications.

Genie uses

I1 - Input for bottle counting.
