EduTrainer® for mini control systems: for a basic introduction to control and monitoring tasks

Basic trainer for mini control systems

Mini control systems are becoming increasingly common in industry and trade. They are used for numerous small control and monitoring tasks for which a PLC would be oversized. Mini control systems or programmable control relays control and operate conveyors, monitor doors and gates, control heating, and so on.

For training purposes, they represent the link between classic safety circuits and programmable logic controllers. Functions can be implemented quickly and easily based on the learned ladder diagram or function chart methodology using simple programming software.

Mini control systems are characterized by the large number of features that they provide. They are easy to program and to connect, are flexible and low-cost, and are therefore indispensable in basic training.

Another advantage of these small and compact devices, which are suitable for mounting in 35 mm H-rails, is that they implement many functions in a single device.

Mini control systems include:

  • Controllers
  • Indicators
  • Diagnostic tools
  • Text displays with operating buttons
  • Interfaces to fieldbus systems
  • Web servers
  • and many more.

Numerous extension modules expand the possible functions.

The EduTrainer® for mini control systems provides a broad basic platform for your project work. The board is designed to hold mini control systems and expansion modules, for example the Siemens LOGO! 8, the EATON Easy family or a CONTROLLINO.

Up to 12 inputs can be picked off on 4 mm safety sockets. Four of these inputs can also be connected directly on the device using a pushbutton/latched switch. Up to 8 relay outputs can be changed to digital outputs using a toggle switch. Up to 2 analog outputs can also be connected to 4 mm safety sockets.

The device also includes two controllable analog encoders, which can be used to bridge voltages from 0 to 10 V at two inputs. An RJ45 Ethernet socket can connect the controller to the programming unit or network switch.
