Counters

 

Counters are primarily used for counting items such as cans going into a box on an assembly line. This is important because once something is filled to its max the item needs to be moved on so something else can be filled. Many companies use counters in PLC’s to count boxes, count how many feet of something is covered, or to count how many pallets are on a truck. There are three types of counters, Up counters, Down counters, and Up/Down counters. Up counters count up to the preset value, turns on the CTU when the preset value is reached, and cleared on reset. Down counters count down from a preset value, turns on CTD when 0 is reached, and cleared on reset. Up/Down counters count up on CU, count down on CD, turns on when CTUD is greater than the preset value is reached, and cleared on reset.
