I'm currently studying motor controls and ladder logic. I have only just started in the last week. I have a challenge I am trying to complete.
Using push button 1, turn on green light.
Using push button 1, turn off green light.
Using push button 1, turn on red light.
Using push button 1, turn off red light and reset the system to allow for step 1.
I first built the logic for only the green light. I have successfully turned on and then off the green light. When I started adding in the red light I found that it would automatically turn on when the green light went out.
Can someone please guide me through this or at least give me hints.
So far I have used:
- 1 NO pushbutton
- 6 control relays
- 3 timing relays
I have been told that using 11 relays it can be done.
Note: I am only using 1 push button in total, 12 pin control (ice cube) relays, and 12 pin timing relays using only the On-Delay function.
As a side note, if anyone knows where I can get the program called "The Contactor" from I would appreciate it. Yes, I have attempted to use Google to find it but after about 6 different searches going to page 2 of each I could not find it.
