Machine Process Control – 650A-MPC

The 650A-MPC Machine Process Control is an electro-pneumatic PLC application training system. This application replicates an automated material handling process typically found in manufacturing control situations. Training activities begin with basic control concepts and quickly progress to more comprehensive process sequencing activities. Students will gain hands-on experience using valves, actuators, industrial sensors, and conveyors.

The 650A-MPC application consists of an electro-pneumatically actuated parts dispenser, which dispenses parts onto a bi-directional belt conveyor. As parts are conveyed, sensors check for various part characteristics. Based on the sensor inputs and programming logic, parts are processed per requirements. Parts can be sorted, counted, stamped, or correct orientation determined. The entire process is controllable by a PLC.

Ancillary Device Control System – 650A-ADCS650A-ADCS

The 650A-ADCS is an electro-mechanical PLC application training system which demonstrates electro-mechanical inputs and outputs typically found in an industrial environment. This desktop-sized application can be used in stand-alone mode or integrated with PLC operation.

Control of the panel devices is accomplished in three ways. The 650A-ADCS can be controlled by TII’s series of PLC training systems, other PLCs using banana jack electrical interconnections, or as a stand-alone training system using the built-in 24 VDC internal power supply and switches. Interconnections are made through use of wire cross-patches connected to the jacks for each device. A set of cross patches are included with the training system.

Ancillary Device Control System

Analog Process Control System – CM184-APCCM184-APC

The CM184-APC provides a hands-on study of a typical closed loop process control system. Students will gain industrial experience using an assortment of temperature and pressure sensing components to control and monitor a water circulation application. This desktop-sized pumping system fills, drains, and circulates water through two water storage tanks.

This system is used to fill, drain, or circulate water through the two water storage tanks. The water temperature is adjusted manually or automatically using the two universal controllers or PLC with analog I/O control capability. One large acrylic water storage tank is attached to the front tray and a second acrylic water storage tank is embedded into the center section of the stainless steel front panel. Located to either side of the front panel are two digital universal controllers. A pumping system is housed inside the metal frame.

Analog Process Control System

Electro-Pneumatics – EP250EP-250

The EP250 is a comprehensive training system for electronic control of pneumatic technology. This training system offers true electrical control and logic of pneumatic technology in a replicated manufacturing press/stamping and vise/clamping environment.

Electronic control is done through use of a Programmable Smart Relay Micro Controller. System components and hardware are mounted in a configuration to replicate 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 that is included with the Smart Relay requires no previous PLC programming knowledge. This allows the student to focus on the learning objectives and controlling the pneumatic elements without having to study PLC programming first.

Electro-Pneumatics

Mechatronics – FMS-800

The FMS-800 Flexible Manufacturing System is part of TII’s series of comprehensive manufacturing automation training systems that can be customized to customer requirements. As learning objectives change over time, so too can the FMS-800 System hardware, software, and configuration.

The FMS-800 System consists of three interconnected mobile tables. Each table can be used as a separate, standalone process or integrated into a dynamic three-table multi-stepped comprehensive process. Tables are connected physically and via Ethernet communications. System control is done with a single master PLC with remote I/O at each table for distributed control over Ethernet communications. Alternatively, a dedicated PLC at each table is used for local control with inter-communications among the three tables via Ethernet. Note: individual table PLCs would require Ethernet capability.

PLC Application Simulation Modules – PAS-SIM

TII’s series of PLC Application Simulation Modules (PAS-SIM) are designed for students to learn about PLC programming and control in an application-focused environment that simulations real world processes without the cost of purchasing real world hardware.

Instead of using computer simulations or expensive models to imitate real world processes, TII has created miniaturized hardware versions to replicate process control functions along with a graphical representation of the process. Each module is design to replicate a single process. This approach enables students to actually connect and control the PLC I/O and visually monitor the PLC process interaction.

PLC Application Simulation Modules

TII Technical Education Systems (TII) is incorporating the the newest technology with an extensive curriculum for academic success, preparing students for today’s modern employers. TII’s broad product line offers instruction in each of the major areas of technology skills training used in industrial systems today: Technology Fundamentals, Advanced Systems, and Integrated Automation.
