Description

 The Flow system consists of a water tank, variable speed pump, a turbine type flow sensor, an electrically operated proportional valve and a variable area flow meter (rotameter). This allows students to adjust the flow rate via the pump speed and the valve opening to develop PID based control system.

The Modern Process Control system from Matrix, allows students to investigate the principles of industrial process control, using independent Temperature, Pressure, Flow and Level based systems.

With a common controller for all applications, the advanced 16bit dsPIC processor with operating system, comes equipped with USB, Wifi, Bluetooth and LAN communications. Once set up the system can run independently and does not require a PC connection. Data can be viewed on the internal graph or saved to a file for later analysis and comes ready to plug in for 110-240V operation.

Full documentation is supplied with the units, including a manual for the equipment and a curriculum workbook, which guides students through the use of Process control systems and the Control function. Transfer functions can be studied using MATLAB or equivalent software.
