Industrial Process Control Rig

Product Code: RT 580

Industrial Process Control Rig

Product Details

Technical Description
This completely self-contained rig facilitates comprehensive experiments from the areas of process control and control systems. Using the rig, all aspects of level, flow and temperature controls can be studied. Cascade controls can also be investigated. Additionally, it is possible to simulate and find six different faults. The core of the system is a digital universal controller. Its function, parameter settings and optimisation are studied in detail. The rig is assembled exclusively from industrial components and includes a programmable logic controller suitable for numerous applications. The unit also facilitates the visualisation of the process. The visualisation is realised using a PC and software (PC available as accessory).
