The "AE-PLC- SLB" is a ball selection system commanded by a PLC. The workstation detects the balls that arrive to the collect position and, depending on the color and material, a cylinder carries the balls to the correct container. The system is equipped with different sensors in order to identify the balls.
The "AE-PLC- SLB" workstation has been designed as a modular system to facilitate the understanding of the equipment operation:
- The PLC: is composed of an AE-PLCB that contains a HMI device, analog and digital input/output modules, etc. And the required extra modules to put into operation the workstation successfully.
- The control panel: emergency stop push button switch, start/stop button, reset button, light indicator to show the state of the workstation, etc.
- The pneumatic circuit: contains the required solenoid valves, filters and regulators to assure the correct working and safety of the unit.
- The workstation: is composed of real components used by the industrial automatic conveyor systems such as: capacitive sensors, limit switch sensors, position sensor, etc.
The "AE-PLC- SLB" workstation can work alone and/or in conjunction with other workstations to make up a complete Flexible Manufacturing system*.
