Advanced Electronic Sensors

EM600 Series

The EM-600 Series is a comprehensive, application-oriented industrial sensors training system. Advanced Electronic Sensors is designed for hands-on study of industrial sensor technology and control in a user-friendly setting.

Electronic control is done through a Programmable “Smart Relay” Controller. System components and hardware are mounted in a configuration that replicates manufacturing operations. Like a PLC, the “Smart Relay” allows the user to program and control up to eight inputs and four outputs simultaneously. However, unlike a PLC, the simplified logic programming software requires no previous PLC programming knowledge.

Users select from a variety of sensor categories and application types to configure the EM-600 Series Training System to their specific needs. Our training system is also accompanied by an instructor’s guide as well as a student manual. This manual is a comprehensive student resource, featuring the background and applications of sensors commonly used in industry.
