PLC Material Handling Application Module
This accessory to the DAC #463 SLC-500 Trainer demonstrates an automated material handling process, similar to those typically found in a manufacturing environment. The device teaches control of valves, actuators, industrial sensors and conveyors. The process can be controlled manually using push buttons and the internal power supply, or by ladder logic programming using the #463 PLC training system.
The curriculum consists of 12 activities, six activities operating in a stand-alone mode and six activities operating with the PLC trainer. Specific activities include part orientation/verification, part dispensing, conveyor operation, part detection and action, quality approval and labeling, part directing, PLC operation, and other application-oriented activities.
Operating devices include: solenoids, part dispensing applications, pneumatic cylinders, limit switch, photoelectric sensor, conveyor, switches, and lights.
