  • Associated product(s)
Control of a sliding gate with LOGO! 8 via a reversing contactor

The gate is operated by a key switch, a remote control, or via the LOGO! web server.

The motor is switched via contactors which are interlocked within the LOGO! switching
program. The movement of the gate is indicated by a signal light and the gate passage is monitored by a light barrier. When entering the premises, via the parameterization of an integrated astronomical clock a path lighting to the house is activated.

The integrated functions of a LOGO! 8 offer many additional possibilities to solve automation tasks quickly and simply.

With LOGO!, prefabricated function blocks support project creation, e.g. weekly time switch, pulse generator, astronomical clock/timer, seasonal time switch, stopwatch and simple logic gates.

The integrated LOGO! 8 web server offers from the LOGO! 8.2 version, in addition to the message text based display, the possibility to create user-defined web pages for clear operation and monitoring. This enables you to call up and control functions via the network.

Advantages of LOGO! over a conventional electrical installation
The simple integration of LOGO! 8 offers you the following benefits: Extendibility of

  • the switching program to incorporate additional tasks.
  • Integrated web server for visualization and control
  • Control and parameter assignment via LOGO! display
  • Integration of LOGO! signals in a KNX system.

Target group
This application example is aimed at specialist electrical installation staff.

The application example does not contain a description for creating a user-defined web page for the LOGO! 8.2.
