LOGO! - Elevating Platform Control

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
An elevating platform should be controlled with LOGO!.

Several sensors connected parallel to each other (e.g. ultrasonic sensors) are installed to monitor the elevating platform area.
The elevating platform is primarily to be controlled via digital LOGO! inputs and outputs and has one limit switch at each of its end positions.

The cursor keys on the LOGO! control unit and the function keys of the LOGO! TDE are also available for controlling the elevating platform.
The integrated LOGO! web server function can also be used to remotely control the elevating platform via smartphone or tablet.

The integrated functions of a LOGO! 8 offer many additional possibilities to solve applications in various areas quickly and easily.

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

The LOGO! text display (TDE) and the integrated web server of the LOGO! 8 offer additional options for operation and monitoring using function keys and message texts.


  • Extendibility of the software program to include further tasks.
    In addition to the elevating platform, a conveyor belt control system or an unloading aid for vehicles, for example, can be projected depending on the situation.
  • Simple, star-shaped wiring of the components
  • Use of simple switches (circuit breakers) or pushbuttons
  • Fewer components are required compared to a conventional solution.

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