Students utilize airflow to control the positioning of an aerodynamic float.
The float represents a control dynamic that is analogous to many real world scenarios, such as an automobile's cruise control, temperature control, autopilot set-point capture, or a buildings HVAC control.The float is a very dynamic and visual cue as to the effectiveness of proper tuning.
The on-board programmable automation controller is Rockwell Automation's latest Logix device. Topics including Sensors, Control Loops, Ladder Logic Programming, Industrial Ethernet, HMI, Networking, lock-out/tag outs, and enhanced PID tuning are all explored within the included curriculum.
