Temperature Control Apparatus with Experimental Panels

Temperature Control Apparatus with Experimental Panels

Product Details

Technical Description
This instructional system is used to examine a simple temperature control unit. It consists of clearly arranged modular experimental panels which are suspended in a frame and connected with cables. A soldering iron equipped with a thermal element is used as the temperature control system. The temperature can be read on a digital display with a measuring transducer. The system includes a digital industrial controller which can be configured continuously as P, PD, PI and PID controller. It is possible to also use it as a two-point controller. The manipulated value can be indicated on a bar diagram. An electronic power control completes the system. The student has the opportunity to get familiar with the components of a control circuit, to interconnect them and vary their parameters. All components are of a sturdy design and therefore well suited for student experiments.

Learning Objectives / Experiments
· Familiarisation with elements of a control system
· Open and closed loop
· Layout of control circuits
· Comparison of different types of controller
- P, PD, PI and PID controllers
- Discontinuous two-point controller
