Replicating a Multivibrator in Function Block (Tutorial)

Project Synopsis

This project is a continuation of the Multivibrator series showing how to replicate a multivibrator in PLCs in multiple different ways. If you are not familiar with the previous iterations of the project, you may want to check them out HERE for reference. In this project the aim is to take Structured Text version of the multivibrator and recreate it in the Function Block language. In some of the previous versions there were separate programs and sub-programs that handled different focuses; this project will attempt to have the entire process be contained in one program. This project will highlight both the benefits of using the Function Block language as well as some of the difficulties of implementation.
