Our industrial sensor troubleshooting simulation covers diagnosing and repairing issues for a wide variety of industrial applications where sensors and environmental controls must be maintained, including those for food processing, clean rooms, and more. Maintenance workers will be able to train within safe and adaptive simulations, allowing them to practice new methods without the high costs of a tactile model.

This program simulates a basic greenhouse scenario involving lighting, humidity and temperature control and applying these proven techniques. Within this setting, basic and advanced issues will be taught and tested.

Activities include:
  • Identification of the main components of a 4 – 20 mA current loop
  • How the 4 – 20 mA current loop works
  • Scaling between sensor input/transmitter output and analog input values
  • The role of the power supply and how to ensure it is adequate to meet the needs of the loop
  • How to calculate current output with a measured value given a sensor’s unit of measurement, range and span
  • Overview of popular common sensor types including their operation, required signal conditioning and common troubleshooting issues

Added benefits:
  • Operation of an Analog Input Module including load resistor, ADCs and wiring.
  • Comparison of analog current and voltage signals.
  • Configuration of an analog input channel including scaling and alarms.
  • How to read and interpret a ladder diagram PLC program.
  • Demonstrations, hands-on labs, and continuous performance measurement.
  • Printable resources including circuit diagrams, schematics, and worksheets.
