Equipment set TP 210 – Advanced level: Measurement and control in pneumatics with FluidLab®-P

Equipment set TP 210 – Advanced level: Measurement and control in pneumatics with FluidLab®-P

Fit for tomorrow?
The TP 210 equipment builds on the training content of the TP 101 and TP 201 equipment sets on the topic of pneumatic measurement and control. The training content ranges from the simple measurement of individual, pneumatic components, basic principles of status monitoring (condition monitoring) to (closed-loop) control technology with discontinuous (two-step action controller) and continuous controllers (PID controller).

In addition, great emphasis is placed on raising awareness of how to handle compressed air responsibly as a form of energy.

Exercises for measuring and analysing system and control behaviour help you to get prepared for a future in which diagnostics, preventative maintenance and saving energy are becoming increasingly important.

Something extra special
In order to the complete the exercises, sensors (e.g. pressure, flow and proximity sensors) are connected to the inputs and control signals are guided to the EasyPort USB outputs. The signals are interpreted and visualised on computer by the FluidLab®-P software included in the scope of delivery. Analogue values are displayed as measurement curves.

Instructions on how to complete the exercises, positional sketches and block circuit diagrams are included with each exercise, so that you are guided step by step through each of the tests. Measured results are then interpreted, compared with sample solutions and you will be asked to answer questions about comprehension.

Course topics

  • Basic principles of analogue data processing
  • Application and adaptation of sensors
  • Interpretation of measurement results
  • Reading and understanding of technical data and measurement curves
  • Fluid engineering components, their influence and function
  • Demonstrating fluid engineering effects and special features
  • Analytical fault finding
  • Saving energy
  • Evaluation of changes in status
  • Proportional technology
  • Control technology with continuous and discontinuous controllers

The benefits to you

  • Fast, PC-supported recording of measured values
  • Greater training success through measurement of components and interpretation of results
  • Sensors that enable students "to look into" the circuit and components
  • Suppositions regarding system behaviour can be easily proven
  • Learning the principles of measurement and analysis and applying them directly in other circuits
  • Demonstrating and understanding the principles of fluid engineering faster
  • System analysis via PC: state-of-the-art diagnostic method
  • Better understanding of fluid engineering components and processes and thus higher quality of training



FluidLab®-P inclusive

The FluidLab®-P software for recording measured values is an important component of the training package TP 210. Just a few simple steps are needed to configure the interface, adapt the sensors and select the language. Exercises can then be started. These are divided into the areas basic tests, cylinder controls, proportional technology and control technology. Exercises are supported by connection diagrams, descriptions and sample solutions. The measurement process is also software-controlled. Results can be measured with measuring points, printed out or exported to a spreadsheet program. The software also includes the complete book of exercises in PDF format.

System requirements

  • PC with Windows XP/7/8/10
  • Pentium® III or equivalently
  • 2 GB RAM
  • CD-ROM disk drive
  • USB 2.0 or serial interface
  • 1280 x 1024 pixels
  • NI LabView 2012 Runtime (included in scope of delivery)

Components from the TP 101 and TP 201 equipment sets are required in order to complete the exercises.

For piston force measurement exercises the force sensor (Order no. 539780) not included in scope of delivery is required.
