Zelio and Altivar PLC with Pushbutton Control

The system is developed with a PLC low end with pushbutton visualization and control through illuminated beacon and pilot lights to organize a connected VVD of AC motor unit. The safety protection is offered in the emergency stop form and a mains switch. All variables of application (control logic, time, or speed) can be adjusted by using the integrated VVD or PLC panel.

The hardware including:
• PLC (Programmable Logic Control Compact of ZELIO)
• PS of Phaseo power supply
• VVD (Altivar ATV 11)
• Circuit Breaker of Tesys circuit breaker GV2
• Push Button of Harmony Style 5 pushbutton XB5, pilot light (PL) of XB5 and emergency stop
• Style of Illuminated beacon XVB
• VCF of Vario switch-disconnect
• AC-Motor Standard

• PowerSuite Version 1.5

Dimensions of the PLC compact size, ATV11, and power supply lets the use cabinet with a 300x200x200mm (BxHxW). Size the pilot lights and pushbuttons can be incorporated into the cabinet front door.

• The GV2 circuit breaker can be assembled on the cabinet rear wall.
• The GV2 requires a DIN rail for mounting.
• The beacon of illuminated is sent as single parts. The user must assemble the beacon before installation. This permits the user to identify the position of the different colored elements.
• There are two potential for assembling the pushbutton of XB5 or pilot light. In the 1st case, the operator drills a 22mm hole in the right position in the front side cabinet. The 2nd case is to assemble the components in an XALD housing which can begin to 5 lights or push buttons. The XALD can also be assembled on a cabinet surface.
• Mostly require of 35mm DIN rail and M5*18mm screws and nuts for fixing
• Wiring between VVD, main switch, and emergency stop using 230VAC
• Wiring between control circuits, power supply, PLC, pushbutton, and light of the VVD using 24VDC
