AutoCAD Electrical toolset can generate any number of different PLC I/O modules on demand and in various graphical styles. AutoCAD Electrical toolset generates the selected PLC I/O module through a parametric generation technique based on information in the PLC database (ACE_PLC.MDB).

Some PLC units may not lend themselves well to parametric generation. A PLC module can be inserted as a pre-built full unit if it uses the appropriate attributes and the block name begins with "PLCIO". The selected unit inserts into the ladder, breaks the wires and then reconnects.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Insert and Create Fixed PLC Modules
  • Insert and Create Parametric PLC Modules
