4. Address Allocation and Configuration:
Assign a unique I/O address to each expansion module and configure the appropriate parameters, such as communication speed and operating modes. These settings may need to be configured using PLC software.
5. Power Supply and Maintenance:
Ensure a stable power supply for both the PLC and the expansion modules, following the manufacturer’s recommendations. Additionally, consider proper environmental cooling and protection to prevent overheating or damage. Regular maintenance and upkeep are also essential to maximize the longevity and performance of the system.
6. Stability and Reliability Testing:
Once the installation is complete, conduct stability and reliability tests on the modules and the entire system. This can involve checking all connections, verifying the correctness of input/output states, and validating control logic.
