1. A double acting cylinder is used to empty finished heavy deuty bolts from a hopper one after another to a conveyer. The bolts are emptied by means of a continuous to and fro movement, The occillating motion can be started by pressing a push button. By pressing another push button, the drive unit is switched off. Use limit switches . 2. Activate a double acting cylinder using pushbutton and proximity sensor. 3. Activate a double acting cylinder using pushbutton and proximity sensor. 4. Activate a double acting cylinder using pushbottons. 5. Activate a double acting cylinder using pushbottons. 6. Activate a double acting cylinder using pushbutton and limit switch. 7. Activate a double acting cylinder using pushbutton and limit switch. 8. Activate a double acting cylinder using read swicth. 9. Writa a PLC programme to verify the following boolean equations: a. Y=AB+CDE b. Y=A+B(C+D) 10. Writa a PLC programme to verify the following boolean equations: a. Y=ABC+D(E+C) b. Y=AB+BC 11. Writa a PLC programme to verify the following boolean equations: a. Y=(A+B)(C+D) b. Y=ABC +DEF 12. Writa a PLC programme to verify the following boolean equations: a. Y=ABD+BC b. Y=ABC+D(E+F) 13. Writa a PLC programme activate a drilling machine only when two swicthes are pressed simultaniously. 14. A material handling system has a arm to pick up an object which is on the conveyer. The arm has to rotate from the home position, only after the object has arrival. The object arrival is sensed by a proximity sensor. Write a simple PLC to move the arm. 15. In a car parking system, when a car arrives, the gate should open only when the pearking lots are free. The parking lots are sensed by the use of proximity sensor. The capacity of parking is 4 cars.
