ESN EDIBON Scada-Net

EDIBON SCADA-NET - ESN

INNOVATIVE SYSTEMS

  • Higher laboratory performance since several students can work simultaneously.
  • Several users can operate various units at the same time.
  • Possibility of dividing the classroom into workgroups.
  • Several experiments can be performed at the same time.
  • Collaborative experiments performance.
  • There are different user levels (manager, basic, intermediate and advanced) with different permissions.
  • The manager has the absolute control of the system. H The manager/teacher can supervise from his/her computer the operations every user is performing in any unit of the laboratory.
  • User and manager are connected at all times.
  • Real time display and control of the whole system from an Interactive whiteboard (touchscreen).
  • CENTRALIZED AND SECURE SYSTEM, it can be totally controlled from the central computer (manager).
  • The "ESN" System is MODULAR, OPEN and EXPANDIBLE.
  • A vision system for real time monitoring of experiments is supplied.
  • Visualization of the changes in a unit from any computer of the laboratory.
  • All units can work simultaneously.
  • The system is made up of as many units as required.
  • The required infrastructure, both hardware and software is provided.

General Description

The EDIBON Scada-Net Systems, "ESN", consists on the integration of EDIBON computer controlled units into the SCADA system in a local network.

The main feature of this system is the remote control of any EDIBON unit belonging to it from any control station included in the local network. In addition, any of these units can be visualized from any workstation.

Consequently, the efficiency of a laboratory with the "ESN" system is higher than the efficiency of a conventional laboratory. This increase is due to the fact that several users can work simultaneously with the same unit and, as a result, waiting times between experiments arereduced. Therefore, the number of users will not be limited to the number of units in the laboratory, as in conventional laboratories.

Since the central control computer is located between the units and the local network, the teacher can manage the access to the units and provide the users with the permissions required to control or view the units of the laboratory. The rest of users can visualize a specific unit in their computers while other person is controlling it from his/her post.

The communication between units and users is always managed by the teacher. The users will not be able to control any unit from their computers if the teacher does not provide the permissions required.

In this system, there are different configuration levels that allow the manager, usually a teacher, can grant certain access permissions to the users/students (basic, intermediate or advanced) depending on the needs of the laboratory practical exercise to be carried out.

The configuration of an EDIBON Scada-Net System is made up of 30 students post, a control post (teacher post) and as many EDIBON technical units as desired. All the devices included in the laboratory are connected through a local area network.

Exercises and guided practices

MORE PRACTICAL EXERCISES TO BE DONE WITH THE UNIT

  1. Control any unit from any post located in the laboratory.
  2. Supervise different experiments about data acquisition and representation, from the units, in real time.
  3. Visualize any experiment from any laboratory post.
  4. Supervise as many experiments as desired, performed in different units at the same time.
  5. Generate reports with the results obtained with the units.
  6. Perform different experiments at the same time.
  7. Show to the laboratory members the appropriate manual or automatic operations to perform with each laboratory unit.
  8. Create more elaborate practical exercises using more than one unit from the laboratory.
  9. Suggest multidisciplinary experiments, in other words, mix in the same experiment units from different study fields.
  10. Modify any parameter of any unit included in the system from any workstation in the laboratory.
  11. Cause an abnormal functioning in a unit for the students to practice fault finding exercises.
  12. Assess the knowledge of a student or group of students about a particular unit (any unit included in the "ESN" system).
  13. Develop guided practical exercises for a better understanding of each unit.
  14. Individual training practical exercises.
  15. Group exams or practical exercises.
  16. Perform interactive exercises (using the chat between manager-users).
  17. Exchange of obtained results among the members of the "ESN" system.
  18. Any exercise directly related to the SCADA software of each unit.
  19. Some of the practical possibilities may be done only with the "ESN" complete system.
