Ferma Process AutomationTraining Set (FQ-DA)

Tecnichal Specifications
Tender Specifications










The process automation training set allows the learner to enable different flows from the main tank to others and back. The learner can change the temperature, pressure and the flow of the fluid. The control is done through a PC connected to the system. The learner can observe in realtime what happens when the setup is changed. Moreover, the process is recorded at the same time through data acqisition on the PC.The Process Automation Training Set helps the learner how to deal with fluids.

The system consists of:

  • Fluid tanks

  • Pump

  • Fluid accumulator

  • Actuators

  • Fluid level measurement

  • Fluid pressure measurement

  • Flow measurement

  • Temperature measurement

  • Heating unit with control panel

  • PC controlled operation

  • I/O card

  • Data Acquisition

  • Scada

  • Software and Documentation

The control and scada software helps users, to be able create an easy setup and control algorithms. Besides, students can visualise the system via an user friendly scada. Students can create scenarios as they want. Defaults are;

         By-pass test
         Tank 2 epmtying
         Pressure test
         Define tank 2 level

There are also online watch windows, and graphic drawing properties, variables (Pressure, level, temperature, flow) versus time.

Available experiments, which can be applied with the sets are;
         Basic programming and understanding of a process flow chart
         Learning the use of Data Acquisition Cards and communication with a PC
         Scada software programming to visualise a real mini industrial process.
         PID Control algorithm creation with PC software
         Comparison of industrial PID temperature controllor behaviour which is built in the system, and the students algorithms written by PC software
         Fluid flow measurement vith a pulse type flow sensor
         Pressure measurement via a digital pressure sensor and a mechanical manometer
         Fluid level control of a tank and calculation of the volume with related the height
         By-pass system control
         Arrange the related solenoid valves according to the necessary scenario
         Setup and piping of fluid systems, pipes can be installed easily by quick connections
         Understanding the sensor characteristics, as
Ultrasonic level measurement sensor
