Technology Fundamentals : Mini Series



Electricity & Electronics – MB 100

This learning system familiarizes students with electricity through an introduction to electronics applications. Our trainer provides a foundational understanding of how electricity works by illustrating how electricity is distributed throughout a variety of inputs and outputs.

Students will learn about magnetism, electrical components (resistors, diodes, capacitors), progress to instrumentation, AC / DC power and schematics. They will learn how to construct and measure series and parallel circuits.  Apply electrical principles and physical properties, including Ohm’s Law, to the developed circuits.

Electricity & Electronics

Pneumatics – MB200

This trainer introduces students to pneumatic technology and its applications. Each lesson requires students to conduct an experiment in pneumatic technology using one or more of the 20+ components including different types of valves, cylinders and measuring instruments.

Students will learn about air preparation, vacuum and pressure regulation. They will understand how to directionally control air flow using manual, solenoid, and air piloted control valves to operate actuators and other devices in order to generate useful work.

Pneumatics

Mechanisms – MB300

The Mechanisms learning system provides a comprehensive look at power transmission and the basic elements found in all machines. Each lesson includes an experiment that requires students to construct and operate a simple machine or device. Among the 30+ mechanical components are a variety of gears, pulleys, and assemblies. Students will use the components to design their own solutions to meet common problems that occur in industrial and everyday situations.

Experiments will teach about simple machines and their application:  first, second, and third class levers; inclined plane, screw, wheels and axles, as well as pulleys and gears to generate mechanical advantage. They will use these machines to design and build a variety of mechanical systems—gear and drive trains, block and tackle systems, linkage motion, and cam operation. Principles learned will be applied to the physical properties of mechanisms including force, work, power, friction/efficiency, kinetic and potential energy.

MECHANISMS

Hydraulics – MB400

This trainer familiarizes students with hydraulic technology and its applications. Each lesson requires students to conduct an experiment in hydraulic technology using one or more of the 20+ components including different types of valves, cylinders and measuring instruments. Students will use these components to emulate industrial applications. Students will develop skills in problem solving, data management, hydraulic concepts, and unit conversion.

Students will learn about hydraulic fluid and filtration, how to control and direct hydraulic fluid using pressure control devices, directional valves, and flow control valves.  They will use the components and schematics to construct hydraulics systems commonly found in industry like a hydraulic press, jack or positioner applications. They will study the physical properties of force, work, power, and energy used in these applications.

Hydraulics

Robotics – MB500

The MB500 Pneumatic Robotics Module teaches PLC control, robotic technology, and pneumatic applications. This module is designed to provide students with an understanding of how pneumatic components work together in a pick-and-place robotic arm application. Learn how to control robotic motion using a pendant or programmable logic controller (PLC) featuring ladder logic computer programming software to create, edit, run, and monitor robot programs.

Students will learn the principles of robotic operations and how to control basic robotic motion using an electrical solenoid valve pack and pneumatic actuators. They will learn to control each robot motion separately: base rotation, linear shoulder extension, linear elbow elevation, and gripper open/close. Then develop a robot motion map by combining the robot motions into a series of robot actions.

Robotics

Sensors – MB600

The MB600 Sensors trainer offers a comprehensive approach to industry sensing devices. This system simulates the many uses of sensors in automated manufacturing. With 29 learning units, this trainer familiarizes students with sensor systems through interactive experiments.  This versatile learning system can also be used with motors, lighting systems, conveyors, or as part of an automation system.  Any electrically compatible PLC can be interfaced to the MB600.

Students will learn about the basic sensor types commonly used in industry including photoelectric (infrared and fiber optic), proximity (inductive), and limit switches. They will learn the advantages and disadvantages of each, as well when to use the different sensor types based on the application. Sensors, with included target and output devices, are electrically connected by quick connect fasteners to a controller base unit.  When the sensor is “tripped,” the corresponding output is activated.

Sensors

Micro Controllers – MB640A

This introductory PLC training system (shown with MB500 Robot) enables students to develop competence in operating and programming an industrial programmable controller. TII’s Micro Controllers offers students experience with an electronic control relay with PLC-like features: built-in logic, timer, counter, and real-time clock functionality.

The Micro Controller is easier to use and program than a traditional PLC. Featuring over 20 learning units, this system’s curriculum begins with basic wiring concepts and quickly moves through series and parallel circuits, Boolean Algebra, inputs / outputs, ladder logic and programming.  Compatible with TII’s MB500 and MB600 training systems.

Micro Controllers

Principles of PLCs – MB665ML-S

Our Principles of PLCs trainer offers students a complete PLC training system featuring the Allen-Bradley MicroLogix PLC with two built-in applications:  traffic intersection and bi-directional motor controlled slide. This system enables learners to develop experience in operating, programming and troubleshooting a true industrial programmable logic controller (PLC) and applying that knowledge to the included applications. Our curriculum begins with basic wiring concepts and quickly moves through series and parallel circuits, Boolean Algebra, inputs / outputs, ladder logic and programming.  Each of our 23 learning units simulate PLC operations and applications within an industrial setting.

Principles of PLCs
