Sine function block in Siemens S5


Thread Starter

We are using an IFM make slope sensor the output of which is 0-10 V DC but non linear and similar to a sine wave. The equation is Ua=5+(sin(deg)x5).

I am interested in realising this sine function in the Siemens S5 135U PLC, if possible. The sensor output is connected to the PLC analog input. Depending on the voltage feedback from the sensor the PLC should calculate angle. Please let me know if there exists a standard function block in S5 for realising Sine function.

Yes there is; we used it. I do not know the order number, but you can find it from catalogues.
