Smart Manufacturing Learning System
A Practical Approach to Upskilling a Wide Range of Roles on Smart Manufacturing, IIoT and Industry 4.0 Capabilities
This is one of the kits of the smart manufacturing trainer module. This kit has the brain of the other two kits (HMI Kit and Mechanism Kit) as programming is done in this kit. It has a PLC for programming and digital inputs/outputs, analog inputs/outputs to connect the required sensors with the PLC. It has an IO link module to connect the smart sensors, so alongwith the 24VDC or analog input this module communicates the sensor status with the PLC. Data logging and data collection is one of the critical steps for IIOT and for that we have integrated IOT gateway and other software platforms in this kit. To connect sensors with the PLC, banana connectors are used. It can communicate on a number of network protocols and it has the feature to communicate with multiple HMIs and Servo drives. In programming kit we have PLC hardwares from Rockwell, Siemens, Schneider, Omron, Delta, Turck and Mitsubishi for programming and various softwares. NUC is also integrated in the kit so that it can be used as CPU for softwares and PLC programming. So, this kit is more than sufficient to demonstrate the features of the PLC, gateways and software platforms (Data Logging, Augmented Reality ,IIOT gateways and platforms), Smart Sensing .
