What is accumulator in Siemens PLC?

The accumulators are registers for processing bytes, words or double words. The addresses are loaded into the accumulators, where they are logically gated. The result of the logic operation (RLO) is in ACCU1. The accumulators are 32 bit long.

What are the blocks used in Siemens Simatic Manager )?

In the Siemens PLC programming software, these blocks are as follow:

  • Organization Block(OB)
  • Function Block(FB)
  • Function(FC)
  • Data Block(DB)

What is TIA Portal and STEP 7?

SIMATIC STEP 7 in TIA Portal is the comprehensive engineering tool for configuring and programming SIMATIC controllers, whether PLC- or PC-based. SIMATIC STEP 7 Professional (TIA Portal) can be used to configure, program, test, and diagnose all generations of SIMATIC controllers.

What is the difference between Step 7 Basic and Professional?

STEP 7 Basic can only be used for programming Siemens S7-1200 PLCs but STEP 7 Professional can be used for programming S7-1200, S7-1500, S7-300, and S7-400 PLCs. This is the main difference.

What is function of accumulator in timers and counters?

The Time accumulator instruction records how long the signal is at the input of instruction 1. The instruction is started when the result of logic operation (RLO) changes from 0 to 1 (positive signal edge). The time is recorded as long at the RLO is 1. If the RLO changes to 0, the instruction is halted.

What is the role of Accu in PLC?

ACCU 1 and ACCU 2 are memories zone reserved where are store some values according to your program instruction. You need to laod values into accumulators when you want to do some addition, substraction, multiplication, division, mask.

What is DB in Siemens?

Data Blocks (DBs) can be used by your program to save data in the CPU. Your hard disk contains up to 8 KBytes ( 8192 Bytes ) space. There are two types of data blocks. Global DBs, where all OBs, FBs and FCs read all saved data or can even write in the DB and local instance DBs, which are assigned a particular FB.

What is FC and FB in PLC?

Summary. ⇒ The main difference is FC has no instance memory, while FB has an instance Data Block(DB). This instance data block saves all the parameters of In, Out, In-Out, and Stat. They can be accessible even after the execution of FB. ⇒ We can program FC or FB with FBD, LAD, STL, and SCL.
