Wiring and Circuit Design

Digital Output Wiring Diagram using a Maple Modular PLC-ES1616P with a terminal block

(A15, B15) – 24V on Power Supply to 24V on PLC to 24V on Terminal Block

(A20, B20) – GND on Power Supply to GND on PLC to GND on Terminal Block

(A1, B1, A2) – 24V to (X00 – Start_Pump), 24V to (X01 – Stop_Pump) and 24V to (X02 – Pump_Overload)

(A5, B5) – Digital Input GND (COM)

(A11, A12, A13, A14) – (Y10 – Pump_Running), (Y12 – Pump_ON), (Y14 – Pump_OFF) and (Y16 – Overload_ACTIVE)
