PALLET STORAGE SYSTEM PL200

The trainer PL200 simulates a pallet storage system of fertilizer bags, representative of a real industrial machine.

PL200It permits to pallet the fertilizer bag according to two types of configurations:

 

CHIMNEY CONFIGURATION EPI CONFIGURATION :

The industrial PLC wich manages the process must take in account different informations relative to physical states as:

- The presence of a bag to the input of the system,

- The switch position,

- The presence of bags at the exit,

- The rank of the bag during the palleting process.

 

Composition of the equipment:

The system includes a switching functional chain of the bags ref PL201A, a configuration and orientation functional subset of the bags ref PL201C and a module with a PLC, PL201-API (TSX37).

These three elements permit a progressive approach of the palleting process technology, and practical works oriented toward the knowledge of the sensors, pre actuators, actuators, effectors, the mechanical links and the initiation to automatics.

 

Training documents supplied:

- A technical file including: The documentation of the components, the electric and pneumatics diagrams, the PLC program,

- A student file including the practical works.

All pieces are drawn with a 3D CAD software (SOLID WORKS® and INVENTOR®)
