Question 1 Which of the following statements about RLL is NOT true?

  • NO contact symbol has two parallel lines to indicate an open contact.
  • RLL stands for Relay Ladder Logic.
  • NC contact symbol has the same two parallel lines with a line across them to indicate closed contacts.
  • The right power rail is positive or the high side of the source, and the left power rail is the power return or ground.

Answer : The right power rail is positive or the high side of the source, and the left power rail is the power return or ground.

Question 2 _____ is a method of entering ladder logic representation.

  • Segment programming

Answer : Boolean mnemonics

Question 3 When a relay is NOT energized

  • There is an electrical path through the NO contacts
  • There is an electrical path through the NC contacts
  • Neither the NO or the NC contacts have an electrical path
  • Both the NO and the NC contacts have an electrical path

Answer : There is an electrical path through the NC contacts

Question 4 In a current sinking DC input module _____

  • The current flows out of the input field device
