A. PLC Input and PLC Output
This application use PLC Controller for drive / controller of Snack Vending Machine. And Input / Output needed by the PLC for Snack Vending Application:
A1. PLC Input :
[Input0] One Input for receiving signal from Coin Acceptor.
[Input1]One Input for receiving signal from the Rotation Sensor, example: Proximity Sensor or etc.
A2. PLC Output :
[Output0] One Output to Drive an Electric Motor Run.
[Output1] One Output to Switch Position Rack 1.
[Output2] One Output to Switch Position Rack 2.
[Output3] One Output to Switch Position Rack 3.
[Output4] One Output to Switch Position Rack 4.
[Output5] One Output to Switch Position Rack 5.

Thus, the input and output requirements for Snack Vending Machine Application are: 2 Input and 6 Output of PLC input / output modules.

C. Sequences PLC Programming for Snack Vending Machine for One type of product
1. Number of products per rack = 7 pieces snack
2. Number of Racks = 5 racks
3. Total of all products = 7 x 5 = 35 pieces snack
4. Use PLC Counter (Total Products) to enter the Total of all products.
5. Setting PLC Counter with 35 for start value (full snack).
6. Use PLC Counter to count the coins from the Coin Acceptor signal [Input0].
7. Switch Rack Position and Rotation Sensor:
7.1.Rack 1 (Relay R1 [Output1]) only ON, If PLC Counter (Coins) greater than zeroand value PLC Counter (Total Products) between 29 and 35.
7.2. Rack 2 (Relay R2 [Output2]) only ON, If PLC Counter (Coins) greater than zero and value PLC Counter (Total Products) between 22 and 28.
7.3. Rack 3 (Relay R3 [Output3]) only ON, If PLC Counter (Coins) greater than zero and value PLC Counter (Total Products) between 15 and 21.
7.4. Rack 4 (Relay R4 [Output4]) only ON, If PLC Counter (Coins) greater than zeroand value PLC Counter (Total Products) between 8 and 14.
7.5. Rack 5 (Relay R5 [Output5]) only ON, If PLC Counter (Coins) greater than zeroand value PLC Counter (Total Products) between 1 and 7.
See the table below with PLC Counter (Coins) greater than zero:
table total product and switch rack position of snack vending machine

8. Use PLC Counter to count the Rotation Sensor [Input1]
9. If PLC Counter (Coins) greater than zero (pulse up) then reset to zero of PLC Counter (Rotation Sensor).
9.1. For one full rotation, then the value of PLC Counter (Rotation Sensor) equal to two.
9.2. One Full Rotation equal to One Coin or One Piece Snack
9.3. If PLC Counter (Rotation Sensor) equal to two :
9.3.a. Decrease PLC Counter (Total Products) by one
9.3.b. Decrease PLC Counter (Coins) by one
9.3.c. Reset to zero of PLC Counter (Rotation Sensor)
10. If Relay R0 [Output0] is ON, then PLC Counter (Coins) greater than zero and one of R1 [Output1] to R5 [Output5] is ON
11. If PLC Counter (Coins) is zero, then Relay R0 [Output0] is OFF and all R1 [Output1] to R5 [Output5] is OFF.

Note:
Application about Snack Vending Machine for One type of product use 3 PLC Counter:
1. Total Products use Memory and use Increment/Decrease Operation
2. Count the Coins use Memory and use Increment/Decrease Operation
3. One PLC Counter for Count the Rotation Sensor
