“The software is working out great. It’s worth making sure that our new maintenance people go through the programs and now it’s going to be a mandatory part of their training. I’ve seen the difference in the few people I’ve run through. The more practice I can get these new troubleshooters the better.”

The simulations

This is a realistic simulation of an industrial process for mixing and processing liquids. At the heart of the system is a PLC which has more than a dozen programs available to provide a variety of different processes.

The system simulation uses a 3 phase AC supply for the power portion, featuring:

  • Pump, agitator, and heaters
  • Motors and transformers
  • Contactors and overloads

The control portion of the system consists of:

  • A generic PLC with 16 digital relay outputs
  • A 24 volt DC power supply powering the inputs
  • Temperature, float, selector and pushbutton inputs
  • Solenoid valves, fuses and indicators

In these simulations, practice:

  • Performing voltage, resistance, and current tests with the multimeter
  • Tracing and disconnect wires and replace components
  • Operating inputs in the circuit
  • Connecting to a virtual laptop to the PLC where you will be able to:
    • Go online and change modes
    • Monitor the operation of the ladder program
    • Change settings in the ladder program
    • Download a variety of ladder programs to the PLC
