PLC Applications – LabVolt Series – Control systems replicating real technological applications

Understand PLC principles and concepts

The PLC Applications from the LabVolt Series aim to further ­develop student understanding of PLC ­programming. Basic principles are integrated with more advanced concepts in order to design small-scale systems typical of what can be found in the industry.

 

 

Main features

  • Tabletop systems
  • Cost-effective applications
  • Realistic components and ­applications
  • Can be interconnected with ­other training systems for inter­disciplinary training applications
  • Modular systems – accessories available to make the applications more complex
  • Fault-insertion capabilities
  • Comprehensive curriculum ­included with each application
  • PLC sold separately (users can ­purchase one of the recommended PLCs or use their own)

Detailed courseware

Each application comes with a ­student manual and an instructor guide. The student manuals are ­divided ­into job sheets detailing ­relevant information and providing clearly stated objectives and procedure steps. The instructor guides contain ladder programs and answer keys for all exercises and questions in the student manuals.

Troubleshooting skills

The training capabilities of the systems are enhanced by their modularity and by the ability to use instructor-inserted faults. Fault switches enhance troubleshooting activities by simulating open coils and contacts, defective contacts, shorted connections, and crossed wires.

Topic coverage

Each PLC application covers a ­specific topic related to PLC controls. Through practical examples, students gain a strong knowledge of PLCs and of the studied applications.

  • Traffic Lights
