RT 522: Flow Control Trainer

Flow Control Trainer

Flow Control Trainer Flow Control Trainer Flow Control Trainer

Product Details

Technical Description 
This teaching and training system provides a comprehensive experimental introduction to the fundamentals of process control using an example of flow control.
A pump transfers water from a storage tank through a piping system. The flow rate is measured by a electromagnetic flowmeter, which permits further processing of the measured value by outputting a standardised current signal. A variable-area flowmeter indicates the flow. The controller used is a state-of-the-art digital industrial controller. The actuator in the control loop is a control valve with electric motor operation. A ball valve in the outlet line enables defined disturbance variables to be generated. The controlled variable X and the manipulating variable Y are plotted directly on an integrated 2-channel line recorder. Alternatively, the variables can be tapped as analogue signals at lab jacks on the switch cabinet. This enables external recording equipment, such as an oscilloscope or a flatbed plotter, to be connected. 
A process control software (RT 650.50) is optionally available. The software permits the construction of a complete networked system comprising multiple trainers from the RT 512 - RT 552 series. The key process variables can also be represented, and control functions executed.
The well-structured instructional material outlines the technological fundamentals and provides a step-by-step guide through the experiments.

Learning Objectives / Experiments
