The "AE-PLC-MS" is a mixing system commanded by a PLC. The "AE-PLC-MS" is composed of three tanks with different liquids. These liquids are pumped and mixed in a reactor vessel using a pump and different valves. The system is equipped with flow and level sensors in order to obtain a precise mixing.
The "AE-PLC-MS" 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 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-MS" workstation can work alone and/or in conjunction with other workstations to make up a complete Flexible Manufacturing system*.
