With a new control system training workstation from industrial automation leader, Rockwell Automation, real-world control applications can be simulated in a safe, non-production environment.
Incorporating the company’s popular Allen-Bradley ControlLogix hybrid control platform, the training workstation is a valuable extension to Rockwell Automation’s training program, facilitating control system design and fault diagnosis.
According to Rockwell Automation , the ControlLogix workstation enables practice with a safety net.
It is an effective tool in strengthening and maintaining skill sets, ensuring maximum benefit from a company’s training investment. It is also ideal for pre-testing new projects and applications before being deployed thus minimising downtime.
The assembly comprises a ControlLogix 10-slot I/O chassis complete with ControlLogix 1756-L62 processor and power supply.
The chassis is communications-ready with on-board ControlNet and EtherNet/IP bridge modules.
Local hardwired I/O are supported via onboard digital and analogue I/O modules (1 x DC input module, 1 x DC output module, 1 x analogue input module and 1 x analogue output module).
These, in turn, are connected to the assembly’s array of illuminated pushbuttons, selector switches, potentiometers and analogue voltmeters which provide operator interface for the workstation.
Providing easy connectivity to any laptop, PC, or HMI device, the ControlLogix workstation comes complete with a convenient transit case, Ethernet and CP3 cables and a set of lab exercises plus solutions
