This is where you create your ladder code. Create/organize your Tasks in this area, and drag-and-drop instructions from the Instructions Pane. The Application Specific Instructions built-in to the Productivity Suite will save you time, and ignite your productivity.
There are so many time-saving instructions, and they all have one thing in common - their "fill-in-the-blank" approach makes it easy to configure even the more complex tasks that used to require a whole bunch of program code. Scaling, calculator-style math, statistics, send email, it goes on and on... Here is a list of all the instructions.
Consider these two frequent ladder logic headaches - finding a average value from a dynamic tag value or its min./max. values. With Productivity PLC's, you just fill in the blanks. How productive is that!
In this non-linear scaling example, the volume of the cylindrical tank needs to be determined based on the measured height of the fluid:
With the SCLN instruction it's a simple matter to enter a few pairs of values, and the Productivity Suite interpolates between the points:
Of course with this particular example additional pairs of values could be used to improve the accuracy of the conversion.
