RSLogix PLC Programming Motor Start/Stop program

Motor Start/Stop One Button Example

We will examine how to start and stop an engine with a single button.
Of course, while doing this, we plan to do this with minimum staff. In order to be suitable for the electrical circuit, instead of Latch and Unlatch (Set – Reset) commands the contacts that sealed it was used.
Start/Stop control consists of 3 stages with one button.
Stage 1: This is when the button is first pressed and still pressed. (When the start button input comes in and the motor starts running.)
Stage 2: This is the situation where you pull your hand from the button, that is, the Start_Button input is missing, but the engine continues to run.
Stage 3: This is the state that we press the button to stop a second time. The state where the start button input comes and the motor stops.
