Let’s take an example and show step by step. In order to drive a DC Motor 30 seconds by a button (START and STOP), the following ladder diagram can be used. We choose the first block. It is a “normally open” switch.
Switch input label will be START button. We will adjust its label and adress.
Click the right button on Start instruction and choose Define tag.
Choose the Start button’s address and click the Define button. Start button’s address is I0.0
We will do the same things like START button with STOP button. Stop button’s address will be I0.1
This is your choice. You have no constraints on it.
