Allen Bradley PLC Troubleshooting

When an Allen Bradley PLC stops working, the entire machine (production line) goes down or the timing of the machine gets off. This disrupts the production process, and can cost the business thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars per hour. Therefore, it’s important to get issues with your control panel fixed as soon as possible.

Allen Bradley PLC Troubleshooting

An Allen Bradley PLC (programmable controller or programmable logic controller) is a branded digital computer or system used in industries for control. It is a programmable relay controller (a small controller with Allen Bradley PLC ladder logic that controls relays that control output.) It controls robotic device or assembly line manufacturing processes or any activity based on simple programming, control of high reliability and diagnosis of process faults or errors.

The automated high-reliability robust controllers are designed to work in harsh industrial environments with extreme cold, moisture, dust or heat. They also work in real time, meaning outputs are produced as soon as the system is fed with some input. Delays can result in unintended operations. Allen Bradley PLC monitors input devices’ states continually and based on tailor-made Allen Bradley PLC software it runs, they real-time system makes decisions to control output devices.

These PLCs are designed to improve machine functions, production lines or even machine processes. The controller machines have the ability to alter and replicate processes or operations whilst gathering important information for dissemination (communication). The modular nature of an Allen Bradley PLCs means that various input and output devices can be used to satisfy the given needs of an application area.

They have simple programming language for easy understanding. They’re used in place of relay switches because PLCs prevent contact overheating. They’re also rugged and lightweight without the need for air conditioners, fans or even electrical filtering to work.

Allen Bradley PLCs mainly comprise of power supply units, processors and I/O devices. They work by simply scanning input devices to determine their state; scanning programs to execute program logics created by users; scan output devices to either energize or de-energize them; and final run housekeeping processes that involve internal diagnostics, communicate with terminals responsible for programming, etc.

When Allen Bradley PLCs fail, the machines they control either stops working or they don’t work as they should. The end result for any company is reduced production, leading to lost revenue. However, if quick action is taken to solve the problems, such losses can be prevented, if not minimized.

It takes an experienced team of technicians with working knowledge of Allen Bradley PLC programming and how they operate to troubleshoot problems. We have what it takes to troubleshoot your manufacturing or production line PLC problems, getting you back up and running in no time.
