Course Content
To fault find a system you need to know EXACTLY how it works
 
HOW EXACTLY DOES A PLC WORK?
  • Am I getting the input to the PLC?
  • The Led on the output card means i am getting voltage out right? does it?
  • What exactly happens in between? ,theres more than just a program in the CPU
  • How exactly does it scan the program?
  • What is this Watchdog Timer? Is it that important?
  • Can I use the same output twice? That's bad programming isn't it?
  • A PLC is a logic controller, so use a logical approach to fault find it.
  • What are the 8 simple test points to check?
  • The PLC is in RUN, that means theres a program right? does it?
  • FORCING a bit and toggling a bit is pretty much the same yeah? depends on which PLC
Then you need to Know the specifics
 
HOW DO I DO THE FOLLOWING?

(some straight forward some not so)

  • Check power is ON and PLC is in right mode (RUN or Program)
  • Check LEDs for fault definition ( what exactly does the LED tell me)
  • Check and Change Modules if required (with spares and without spares)
  • Removing modules with power ON ( will I blow anything up)
  • Establish link to PLC (RSLinx)
  • Link to CPU via RS232 port, Ethernet or DH+ module
  • Checking Ethernet connections using PING instruction (very useful)
  • Create a blank project and take a backup (just in case I mess up)
  • Open the correct project Off Line and link to PLC
  • Interrogate errors in Controller Properties, common faults
  • Identify if it is a hardware or software fault?
  • Identify if it is a PLC or Comms fault
  • Access fault information about I/O cards
  • Change the battery, (with power ON of course)
  • Working with CPUs with Non Volatile (EEPROM) memory 
  • Check all settings against a template, Node Address etc.
  • Check Hardware Configuration, I/O errors
  • Clear Memory and Download program
  • Monitor program
  • Is it Latched or Unlatched I'm never quite sure?
  • Altering values in Tag tables
  • Back tracking through a program to establish where power flow stops
  • Searching for specific operands and instructions
  • Using Bookmark function
  • Changing timer, counter values On Line
  • Making minor mods Off Line and On line
  • Creat a Trend to trend address status or values
  • Altering timer, counter and other values if required
  • Force a parameter if required
  • Toggling addresses to move program on in sequence
  • Call up documentation to assist with software diagnostics
  • Printing Cross Reference / Program Listings etc.

Background information also covered

Understanding of the following:

  • Number formats, bits,words,double words
  • Binary, Real, Integer, DINT,
  • Basic Communications, RS232 and Ethernet
  • Network Basics

  • Tasks, Programs and Routines
  • How to monitor various blocks
  • Understand basic Ladder programs
  • Basic Instructions, contacts, Latch, Unlatch etc.
