Base structure and Robot:Anodized aluminium structure. Metallic elements in steel.Cartesian robot, controlled by 3 motors.Movement in the X, Y and Z axes.Support for the different sensors.Robot arm, computer controlled, with a sweeping area .Electronic box for the motors multiplexing. This Electronic box is controlled by a PLC allocated intothe Control Interface Box.
EFAC/CIB. Control Interface Box:Control interface box with process diagram in the front panel and with the same distribution that thedifferent elements located in the unit, for an easy understanding by the student.All sensors, with its respective signals, are properly manipulated for -10 to +10V computer output.Sensors connectors in the interface have different pines numbers (from 2 to 16), to avoid connectionerrors. Single cable between the control interface box and computer.The unit control elements are permanently computer controlled, without need of changes or connectionsduring the whole process test procedure.Shield and filtered signals to avoid external interferences.Conventional mechanical and electrical protection systems, and also, computer protection and in asimultaneous way.
Data Acquisition Board:PCI Data acquisition board (National Instruments) to be placed in a computer slot.Bus PCI.Analog input:Number of channels= 16 single-ended or 8 differential.Resolution=16 bits, 1 in 65536.Max. Sampling rate up to: 250 KS/s (Kilo samples per second).Input range (V)= 10V.Data transfers=DMA, interrupts, programmed I/0.Number of DMA channels=6.Analog output:Number of channels=2.Resolution=16 bits, 1 in 65536.Maximum output rate up to: 833 KS/s.Output range(V)= 10 V.Data transfers=DMA, interrupts, programmed I/0.Digital Input/Output:Number of channels=24 inputs/outputs.D0 or DI Sample Clock frequency: 0 to 1 MHz.Timing:Counter/timers=2.Resolution:Counter/timers: 32 bits.This unit is common for all applications type “F”and can work with one or several applications.This unit is common for all applications type “F”and can work with one or several applications.
EFAC/CIBWe offer some Sets of components for doing the main exercises and practices, but THE UNIT IS OPEN to use many otherelements that can be chosen by the teacher.
a) Sensor:Sensor of Electric Field. It is a probe capable of measuring the potential created by any distribution of loads. Itconsists on a conductor wire that measures the reference and the point where it is located.b) Elements:A nickel-plated conductor sphere with diameter of 100 mm.Conductor coil sheets of 280 x 240 mm (2 units).Conductor coil sheets of 100 x 280 mm (2 units).A nickel-plated sphere with insulating rod.Several conductor plates.Tank.Red conductor cable with banana crocodile.Black conductor cable with banana crocodile.Black cables (2 units) with bananas at the ends.Red cables (2 units) with bananas at the ends.
The teacher can use any element that creates ELECTRICAL FIELDS, so the UNIT IS OPEN and can doMANY OTHER EXPERIMENTS.c) Computer Control Software:Computer Control+Data Acquisition+Data Management Software for Electrical Fields application.Compatible with actual Windows operating systems. Graphic and intuitive simulation of the process in screen.Compatible with the industry standards.Registration and visualization of all process variables in an automatic and simultaneously way.Flexible and open software, developed with actual windows graphic systems, acting simultaneously on all processparameters.
Management, processing, comparison and storage of data.Sampling velocity up to 250,000 data per second.Student calibration system for all sensors involved in the process.It allows the registration of the alarms state and the graphic representation in real time. Comparative analysisof the obtained data, after the process and modification of the conditions during the process.Open software, allowing to the teacher to modify texts, instructions. Teacher’s and student’s passwords to facilitatethe teacher’s control on the student, and allowing the access at different work levels.This unit allows that the 30 students of the classroom can visualize simultaneously all results andmanipulation of the unit, during the process, by using a projecto
