Programmable Logic Controls Training Panel Components
LearnLab makes PLC Training fun and easy! All the PLC components you see here are found everywhere in modern day manufacturing and industrial facilities. This Vocational Training System teaches students 98% of what they need to know to enter the work force as a industrial PLC programmer and tech.
1. Training System Platform
2. Connection Strip The curriculum teaches a student how to correctly wire a control circuit using the same barrier strips found in most industrial machinery . This aids in teaching proper construction as well as troubleshooting methods.
3. Limit Switches Limit switches are found in many, many places in industry from doors, protective guards, positioning, end-of-travel, as well as many other applications. Student will learn to wire and troubleshoot these common industrial devices.
4. Stop Start Station By far these industrial electrical switches are a staple in machines and process controls. The curriculum teaches all about these common devices by using real world scenarios to challenge the students throughout the training.
5. Transducer Real world devices such as signaling and sound generators are used throughout industry. This real sound transducer adds the sound dimension to the training circuits that call be both fun and educational at the same time.
6. Selector Switch Selector switches are another very common control panel device that is used in many ways in common machine and process controls. Students will learn to understand, connect and troubleshoot this switch in this real world training.
7. General Purpose Contactor Contactors are also largely used in many circuits such as heater control, lighting control as well as many others. Student here learn to connect, operate, and troubleshoot these contactors.
8. IEC Motor Starter Students will learn to identify and understand the motor starter functions, and why they are required to be used by the National Electrical Code in industry. Students learn the components, connections, failures, and how this devices operates and why.
9. Ice Cube Relays Controls Relays Controls relays, often called ?Ice Cube? relays due to their appearance similar to an actual ice cube are a staple in most machine controls systems. Our curriculum teaches the types, functions, and operation of these common devices, along with the common failures, and the easy methods to troubleshoot them.
10. Programmable Logic Controller This modular PLC offers the ability to teach student how to program, set-up, and troubleshoot many brands and types of PLC. The training curriculum is arranged to cover many brands such as Allen Bradley, General Electric, Koyo, Omron, and more. Students will gain a well rounded knowledge of how these device operate and how to use them.
11. Indicator Lamps While simple in construction, students will learn the importance of these devices by wiring them into common circuits, seeing them operate and troubleshooting the circuits based on their functions.
12. Power Supply The on-board power supply converts the 120VAC power to a manageable and safe voltage to allow the students to wire, troubleshoot, and even short circuit the control circuits with out dangerous risks. The panel operates below the NFPA 50 volt level to dispel the need to wear PPE when training.
