General Description

The Modular System for the Study of Sensors with PLC Control, "PLC-BS", are a large number of modules that show the operation of different sensors to understand the sensor control applications of different technologies, applied to common measurement and control systems such as temperature, flow, pressure, deformation, velocity, etc. The "PLC-BS" are designed to work with PLC control and offer an introduction to PLC units that work with a sensor signal and control an actuator.

The "PLC-BS" modules, designed by EDIBON, allow the user to learn about the basic concepts of different sensors (operation, sensor calibration, etc.) and the basic operation of a Programmable Logic Control (PLC) unit without any previous knowledge or experience.
