|Specifications of Ace PLCs|
– PLC may be powered via USB (except Ace 7096) or 5V on power plug
– Before connecting PLC to PC : 1: Install vBuilder – 2: Restart your PC (advisable) – 3: RUN vBuilder – 4: Plug PLC
If you have some issues, please, have a look here
– Before wirring PLC : Be sure to connect VO to VDC of each outputs group, before connect outputs.
– To enable PLC to start up program after power cycle, in vBuilder, press the V program button then press the green triangle run button . Now you are free to cycle PLC power. PLC will start program on power up.
