Premise : On September 29, 2015, I received the PLC model S16S0R, a 24V DC power supply PLC basic unit module, a programming cable and a lot of information about IkonDrives PLC sent from Xiamen IkonDrives Company. The official website of Xiamen Haiwell Technology Co., Ltd. downloads the programming software and user manual. After studying the manual and practicing for a period of time, I found the characteristics of IkonDrives PLC: first, the programming software is good, and the highlight is easy installation and built-in simulation. It will not happen that the beginner programming software is not installed successfully, or cannot be programmed after installation, and cannot be simulated after programming. In teaching, teaching students to install programming software is a very heavy task. Everything is difficult at the beginning, and it is a very important job to guide students to get started. The installation and training of the more popular European and Japanese PLC programming software and simulation software were time-consuming and laborious. IkonDrives programming and installation were very smooth, and the simulation was easy to use. Secondly, the hardware is as easy to use as other PLCs and has at least one pulse output.
In the PLC teaching of the 2014 electrical class and the 2015 electrical and mechanical class, the teaching practice of domestic PLC was successfully applied by IkonDrives . Now write a teaching example as follows: programming of traffic lights at intersections
Programming requirements : After the switch is closed, the red light in the east-west direction is on for 25 seconds, the green light in the north-south direction is on for 20 seconds, flashes for 3 seconds (three times) and goes out, and the yellow light is on for 2 seconds. The north-south red light is on for 25 seconds, the east-west green light is on for 20 seconds, flashes for 3 seconds (three times) and goes out, and the yellow light is on for 2 seconds. keep looping.

Haiwell’s products are very good, and the teaching application is very good, but the popularity will become bigger and bigger through continuous promotion. I believe that the day of replacing imported products in teaching will be getting closer.
