Unit designed to demonstrate the operating characteristics of a series of different types of pumps.
Anodized aluminium structure and panels in painted steel.
Main metallic elements in stainless steel.
Diagram in the front panel with similar distribution to the elements in the real unit.
PBOC/CIB. Control Interface Box :
Control interface box with process diagram in the front panel and with the same distribution that the
different elements located in the unit, for an easy understanding by the student. All sensors, with their respective signals, are properly manipulated from -10V. to +10V computer output. Sensors connectors in the interface have different pines numbers (from 2 to 16), to avoid connection errors. Single cable between the control interface box and computer.
The unit control elements are permanently computer controlled, without necessity of changes or connections during the whole process test procedure. Simultaneously visualization in the computer of all parameters involved in the process. Calibration of all sensors involved in the process.
Real time curves representation about system responses. Storage of all the process data and results in a file. Graphic representation, in real time, of all the process/system responses. All the actuators’ values can be changed at any time from the keyboard allowing the analysis about curves and responses of the whole process.
All the actuators and sensors values and their responses are placed in only one computer screen.
Shield and filtered signals to avoid external interferences.
Real time computer control with flexibility of modifications from the computer keyboard of theparameters,
at any moment during the process. Real time computer control for pumps, compressors, resistances, control valves, etc. Open control allowing modifications, at any time and in a real time , of parameters involved in the process simultaneously.
Three safety levels, one mechanical in the unit, other electronic in control interface and the third one in the control software.
