The MB600 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.
- Work surface can be removed from case for setting up sensor experiments with other equipment
- Output devices: lights and horn
- Targets: Metal (Steel, Aluminum, Copper), Colorboard (black, white, silver)
