Hybrid PLC Mechatronics - Chapter 12 Handling Data

This chapter explains a number of data handling instructions and provides applications for their use in factory automation. Instructions are provided for a number of operations that would otherwise have required a significant programming effort to provide. Included are the queuing operations using FIFO instructions. Other interesting instructions in data handling include the bit-shift instructions. These instructions are used for shift register part tracking. Instructions used in data manipulation were shown with examples included for each type of instruction.
