This generic training platform allowing for instruction related to the
programming and use of industrial PLCs. The basic device is provided without
a PLC, allowing the user to wire to the PLC of their choice, based on local
training needs and available hardware.
A combination of lights, switches, and external I/O connections allows
the student to develop and test ladder logic programs and connect to external
devices, regardless of PLC used. Sufficient I/O connections are provided
to allow for use with many AC, DC and Analog applications.
The device allows for convenient connection to DAC PLC application modules,
DAC Process Control Trainers, and DAC Motor and Motor Control products as
well as other automation-related products. A variety of optional PLC packages
can be provided, several of which are listed below.
Whether used as a stand-alone training device, or in combination with
other DAC products, this device will help make training in this current
industrial technology more productive and realistic.
