Rockwell's Automation Studio 5000™ and FactoryTalk ViewME®v8.0
Rockwell's Automation Studio 5000™ and FactoryTalk ViewME®v8.0 graphically present the "factory floor", offering students direct programming and operating experience with the most current industrial automation hardware and software.
Utilizing water as the working fluid, along with interchangeable pump impellers and a clear-view pumping circuit, students are provided skills-based training in:
Centrifugal pumps: Including data mapping & development of characteristic performance curves, along with viewing often discussed, but never seen flow cavitation
Control loops that include:
- Tank levels
Programmable Automation Controller (PAC) Programming: Featuring on-board Rockwell Automation Studio 5000™ ladder logic with PIDE Autotune
Human Machine Interface (HMI) Programming: Large format touch screen with preinstalled Rockwell Automation FactoryTalk ViewME® v8.0
Variable Frequency Drives (VFD): Operation & control
Ethernet communications: Set-up & networking over local area networks (LAN) & internet (subnets, IP address Classification, etc.)
Another unique feature includes a strobe lighting unit that highlights boundary layer activity in the centrifugal pump impeller, actually stopping cavitation bubbles and related flow phenomenon "in their tracks", so you can see them!
A side mounted "Grace Port" also allows for HDMI interface and overhead projection of the HMI display- for large group participation. And, on-board Ethernet offers opportunities in remote learning and data sharing.
