Participants have individual training positions at their disposal, where they perform industrial tasks based on Siemens S7-300 controllers. The training position consists of the PLC fitted with analog and digital input/output modules combined with a digital and analog signal simulator. Additionally, each controller is connected with the lab station fitted with a valve manifold, manipulator, sensors informing about the end positions of cylinders and pulse buttons.The positions are fitted with:
SIEMENS SIMATIC S7 313C controller
- 128 KB work memory
- 24 digital inputs
- 16 digital outputs
- 5 analog inputs
- 2 analog outputs
- 8 buttons inducing input signals
- Potentiometer regulating the analog input voltage
- LCD displaying analog input voltage
- LCD displaying analog output voltage
- air service unit
- Manifold with 4 electro-pneumatic valves 3/2, 5/2,5/3
- Actuator built of two cylinders and a gripper
- Reed sensors informing about the end position of cylinders
- Digital input/output module
- Impulse ON/OFF switch
- Safety switch
- Display with interactive visualizations
