MCD ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO SIMULATE A ROTARY TABLE

Hi! I'm trying to simulate the behavior af a rotary table. In this case a 2 position one. Since I'm focused on testing some PLC logic I'm not interested into simulate it like in the real world but to me it is enough that it rotate of 180 degrees each time an input is raising up. That is just to start... then mybe I could go further. Attached is my WIP.Table.png

Hello Fincol,

 

If I understand you correctly you want to react to a change of an signal.

For example if the Signal "Rotate / E01" is true you want to rotate the turntable for 180 degrees but  also that the next rotation for 180 degrees takes place when the signal is changed again to true. 

You can use an operation to achive that:

In your case, you can remove the formula for the rotation and use the operation with the signal as input for the rotation.
