General Description

The Flexible Manufacturing System 6, "AE-PLC-FMS6" is a modular system composed of two workstations: the "AE-PLC-A" feeding workstation for pieces and the "AE-PLC-CF" sorting workstation.

The objective of the "AE-PLC-FMS6" system is to provide pieces of different colors and materials and sorting them depending on the specifications of the system.

Each workstation is locally commanded by a PLC device and, in turn, a central PLC coordinates all workstations. The communication network between workstations and PC is based on the Ethernet protocol.

The "AE-PLC-FMS6" system design by EDIBON allows the users to learn the basic concepts of automation as the operation of an Ethernet network or how to program a PLC and about other areas as pneumatic, electro-pneumatic, etc.

The optional "AE-AS" software is design to teach the students how works real automation software. This software allows making 2D and 3D processes simulations, supervising and controlling SCADA systems, programming and communicating PLCs, simulating hydraulic, pneumatic and electronic devices’ operation, etc.
