As shown in Figure 1 is, along the lines of instructions can branch out again and then joined again.

The lines of vertical pairs (such as capacitors symbol) is called the condition. The pair of vertical lines no diagonal line called the Normal Open - Normally Open or NO and related instruction LOAD (LD), AND or OR. While the couple have a vertical line was a diagonal line called the Normal Closed - Normally Close or NC, and related instructions LD NOT, AND NOT or OR NOT. PLC is still used mostly as a strand of logic, as generally in strings of logic / digital solutions to these problems will be easier if each input and output components are presented in digital logic, involving the truth table, set the output equation in the table are based on binary numbers, then simplify the equation by using Karnaugh Map. Here are some examples of conversion from basic logic gates in the Ladder Diagram. (Example given has 2 inputs and 1 output).

Logic AND The truth table of logic AND is as follows,

Conversion to Ladder Diagram,

Logic OR The truth table of logic OR is as follows,

Conversion to Ladder Diagram,

Logic NOT The truth table of logic NOT is as follows,

Conversion to Ladder Diagram,

Logic NAND Logic NAND is a development of logic AND, OR and NOT. The truth table is as follows,

The truth table above have the following equation, O = (A.B) '= A' + B ' So the conversion to Ladder Diagram,

Logic NOR This logic is also the development of the logic AND, OR and NOT. The truth table is as follows,

The truth table above have the following equation, O = (A + B) '= A'. B ' So the conversion to Ladder Diagram,

Logic XOR Similarly, the logic of the previous ones. This logic is also the development of AND, OR and NOT. This logic is widely used in summing strand (adder). The truth table is as follows,

The truth table above have the following equation, O = A o B = A '. B + A. B' So the conversion to Ladder Diagram,
