ZM9501 Control of four variables from process engineering Vocational Training Tools And Equipment Hydrodynamics Experiment Apparatus

  1. Description

The ZM9501 facilitates practical learning in the control of four controlled variables which are commonplace in process engineering.

A circuit with a graduated transparent tank is provided for the control of flow rate, level and pressure. Two actuator possibilities are included for use, namely, a variable-speed pump and a pneumatic control valve. A disturbance variable can be generated by a valve in the tank outlet for level and pressure control. A valve at the tank head also permits investigation of level control with and without counter pressure.

A heating circuit with a heater, heat exchanger and pump is provided for temperature control. The temperature can be controlled using the heater as the actuator, or by way of the flow of cooling water through the heat exchanger.

Two forms of cascade control are possible. The level in the tank can be controlled by way of the flow rate. The temperature in the heating circuit can be controlled by way of the flow rate through the heat exchanger. For these two cascade controls, either the pump or the control valve can be used as the actuator.

 

Sensors provide for measurement of the controlled variables. The variables can also be read-off directly from analogue meters. A paperless recorder is provided to record the control processes. The industrial controller has four selectable control loops. It has a PROFIBUS DP interface. This enables the trainer to be controlled by way of a process control software. The software also permits recording of the process variables and parameterisation of the controller on the PC.
