General Description

The "PLC-BS9" has been designed to study the control and handling techniques of a pneumatic actuator through a PLC. The actuator is a double acting pneumatic cylinder that allows moving a platform. The displacement of the piston axle is detected by a linear displacement sensor LVDT. The position of the pneumatic cylinder is controlled by two proportional electronic valves. The pressure difference between the piston inlets is measured by a differential pressure sensor and the supply of compressed air is provided by a compressor. The pneumatic cylinder position is controlled by PLC depending on the obtained signals from the position sensor.

* Available PLC models of different manufacturers: PANASONIC, SIEMENS, OMRON, MITSUBISHI, ALLEN BRADLEY, etc.

Exercises and guided practices

GUIDED PRACTICAL EXERCISES INCLUDED IN THE MANUAL

  1. Proportional valves. To control electronically the vertical displacement of a double effect pneumatic piston using proportional valves.
  2. Differential pressure sensor. To use a pressure sensor for measuring the pressure difference between both pneumatic piston air inlets.
  3. Pneumatic switch. To deflect the air flow using a pneumatic switch.
  4. LVDT Linear Displacement Sensor. To measure pneumatic piston displacement using an excitation and DC output LVDT.
  5. Using the analogs input and outputs of the PLC to read and write analog signals.
  6. Read the position sensor signal with the PLC.
  7. Manual control of the actuator through the PLC.
  8. PID control of the cylinder position through the PLC.
