MB500 - Pneumatic Robotics Module

 
  • an introductory robotics educational system designed to provide students with an understanding of how pneumatic components work together in a pick-and-place robotic arm application

  • the student learns how to create, edit, run and monitor robot programs using a programmable logic controller (PLC) using ladder logic computer programming software

  • with the optional toggle switch pendant, the MB500 can be operated stand-alone by allowing the student to control the robot motions via manually toggling the pendant switches on and off

  • curriculum covers the history and types of robots; individual axes of motion are computer programmed one axis at a time; a motion map is created followed by an integration of all three axes and the gripper using a PLC (customer supplied) for automated motion control

  • curriculum is in a 10-activity modular format with pre and post assessment testing and assumes some knowledge of PLCs

  • curriculum allows for self-paced, individualized instruction and training

MB640A - Introductory PLC

 
  • uses a Micro Controller for programmable control; the Micro Controller is an electronic control relay with PLC-like features: built-in logic, timer, counter, and realtime clock functionality

  • enables learners to develop competence in operating and programming a simplified industrial programmable controller

  • curriculum begins with basic wiring concepts and moves quickly through circuits, I/O, ladder logic and programming; additional units focus on the special features of the Micro Controller

  • each unit includes programming and wiring experiments, which stimulate proficiency in controller operation and industrial applications

  • the experiment station design permits easy access to the input/output terminals with simple banana-jack connectors which allows rapid set-up and testing of wiring changes, using the built-in input/output devices or user-identified external devices

  • the Pico Controller is programmed using ladder diagrams, and each programming element is entered directly using the keypad/display or the Windows-based programming software
