10 PLC Math Instructions

Objectives Program the add instruction in the PLC ladder logic diagram. Program the subtract instruction in the PLC ladder logic diagram. Program the multiply instruction in the PLC ladder logic diagram. Program the divide instruction in the PLC ladder logic diagram. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

Two operands hold source data (Source A and Source B), which are added together. Either both sources can be registers or one source can be a register while the other one is a number. Third operand is the destination. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

Description of Status Bits

Subtraction Subtract (SUB) instruction has three operands:
Two operands, Source A and Source B, hold the source data. Content of Source B is subtracted from Source A. Result is placed in the destination. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

Subtraction (Cont.) Subtract instruction for the Allen-Bradley SLC 500 series PLC displayed in block format. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

Multiplication Multiply (MUL) instruction has three operands:
Two operands hold the source data (Source A and Source B). Either both sources can be registers, or one source can be a register while the other one is a number. Destination must be a register. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

Multiplication (Cont.)

Division Divide (DIV) instruction has three registers:
Two registers hold the source data (Source A and Source B). Either both sources can be registers or one source can be a register while the other one is a number. Destination must be a register. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

Division (Cont.) Divide instructions in SLC 500 series PLCs displayed in block format. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

Advanced math instructions are used to perform mathematical computations. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

Compute (CPT) instruction may be used to solve mathematical equations. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

Given the following equation, you can use the CPT instruction to solve it. Y = (A × (ln B) × eC) + (tan D) © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

First assign floating point register locations for the parameters in the equation. Note that integer registers such as N7:0 hold integer numbers. Floating point registers such as F8:0 hold a real number that has both integer and fractional part. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

Assigned registers are: A = F8:0 B = F8:1 C = F8:2 D = F8:3 Y = F8:4 © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

Normally open contact I:1/0 is closed, equation in CPT instruction block calculated. Result is placed in floating point register four (F8:4). © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.
