The "PLC-BS7" has been designed to study the linear and angular speed measurement techniques through a PLC. This unit is equipped with a miniature motor to move an axle at different speeds, being able to adjust de motor speed by changing the voltage that is supplied to the actuator motor. The speed of rotation can be measured using the various measuring transducers that are fixed to the axle. The tachometer output signal is conditioned to be connected to the PLC. The axle speed is controlled by the PLC in function of the signal obtained by a tachometer.
* Available PLC models of different manufacturers: PANASONIC, SIEMENS, OMRON, MITSUBISHI, ALLEN BRADLEY, etc.
