FluidLab PA process: Getting started in process engineering

FluidLab PA process: Getting started in process engineering

Simple application of complex relationships
The clear menu structure proceeds from the commissioning of the EduKit PA or Compact workstation to the process engineering using the example of a bottling plant.

Menu: Guided commissioning
A check list like in industry. After processing, the system is activated. A commissioning protocol can be printed out for documentation.

Condition monitoring
Safety and efficiency are checked by means of permanent recording of machine status. Detects and analyzes deviations with FluidLab PA process.

Menu: Operation, open- and closed-loop control with the EasyPort
Experience the behavior of a system using simple process examples. Control-technology operations and continuous and discontinuous controllers are presented. Subsequent analyzes bring a valuable, basic understanding which can be transferred to the general technology. Especially general training aims, such as the concentrated observation and analysis of systems, are encouraged.

Menu: FluidSIM
Develop and immediately test control-technology relationships – whether virtual or real. Program one's own process sequence in FluidSIM: electrical circuit diagram, logic diagram and GRAFCET.

Menu: Virtual reactor
Animated by a sequencer – observing, analyzing and documenting the simulated processes. Production according to customer order and assessing and responding to error messages are in demand.

Menu: Virtual PLC – actuating with STEP 7, PLCSIM or CODESYS® simulation
Learn the basics of PLC programming and the logical processing of binary and analog signals. Test the program on a virtual or real model.

Menu: Filling with Excel interface
FluidLab PA is transmitted order data from MS Excel via the DDE interface, e.g. the number and volume of the bottles. Conversely, the current status of the plant, for example the level of the storage tanks, is reported.

FluidLab PA for MPS PA stations is included.
