The PLC expansion is a PLC-based system designed to work in conjunction with other units from EDIBON. These units can be controlled bythe PLC expansion to obtain a required function. The objective is to learn how PLCs are integrated in real industrial applications.
The unit includes an industrial PLC, a HMI to expand the I/O functionality of the PLC system and different I/O modules such as a digital I/O moduleto acquire binary signals and control two-state actuators, an analog I/O to acquire analog signals (sensors, transducers and other analogsignal sources) and control analog actuators (valves, pumps, etc.) and a communication module to communicate with a PC via USB.
