TQ’S new Process Trainer (CE117) brings process control to life, re-enforcing theory with credible demonstrations and practical experiments.

The Process Trainer is a complete educational package that relates closely to process engineering in the real world. It is available from Duff & Macintosh P/L.

Its high functionality means it has the potential for use on many different engineering courses and in many study areas.

It is also suitable for teaching at different levels – from introductory experiments to advanced topics in process automation.

To ensure suitability, TQ produced a relevant, successful study aid, the Process Trainer, in association with Professor Peter Wellstead of the Hamilton Institute. Professor Wellstead, formerly of UMIST, is a highly respected authority on control engineering, whose name is known throughout the academic world.

By demonstrating concepts that can otherwise be difficult for students to grasp, the bench-mounting, fully integrated Process Trainer enables efficient and effective teaching. In addition, the equipment has a serial interface for multichannel data acquisition and control.

A key feature of the Process Trainer is that it is supplied with TQ's own Windows-based Control Software. The software includes sample controller files, and its versatility means that users can create their own controllers as well

The Process Trainer also includes a comprehensive user guide with theory, experiments, typical results and more.
