Lubrication System PLC Programming Using Omron PLC CP1E

Lubrication system is one of the important need in all types of machines. As with time degradation, wear-tear of machine takes place So Lubrication plays a very important role . All the machines are designed with a fully functioning efficient lubrication system. Generally old machines had the provision of doing Lubrication manually.

But the manual lubrication of each and every part of machine consumes very precious time and also production loss . So here we will discuss the Automatic Lubrication System Functioning.
Automatic Lubrication system consist of a PLC and HMI. The hardware part comprising of Solenoid valve and Lubricant holder should be kept at proper places in machine.
As in machines it is required that the lubrication system should run for a fixed interval of time and then stops and then gain starts automatically as defined by the time in HMI and each lubrication system should run Sequentially.Subscribe to Automation-Talk by Email .

Overview of PLC Program/PLC Control Panel for Lubrication system?
As in this system first of all run time and stop time of each lubrication system is input through HMI and read on PLC. Machine Operator can set the the time accordingly and change as required. There is also one auto-manual selector switch provided in the panel and operator can operate the solenoid valve in manual mode to check the functioning of each Lubrication system.
Realys will be used to actuate the solenoid valves.

PLC Programming of Lubrication System using Omron PLC:-
Here we are taking the example of a control panel consisting of three lubrication system and one HMI . First of all RUN TIME and STOP TIME for each lubrication system will be entered from HMI and whenever the panel is turned ON for first time each lubrication system will run for the time specified in HMI sequentially one by one and after that they will stop for the time mentioned in HMI and then after that they again run and so on .
Here we have considered as 1 input and 3 outputs.
Input : - 0.0 ----auto/manual
Output:- 100.0 --upper grease
100.1--- lower grease
100.2 --- open gear
Logic is made accordingly as the concept defined above.

We will soon come with the HMI program also. If you have any difficulty in understanding the logic or want to add some extra features do write us in comment section and we will get back to you ASAP. Subscribe to Automation-Talk by Email .
