Matrix: Process Control – Pressure

SKU: CT1733USA Categories: , Tag:


The Pressure system consists of a variable speed reciprocating air pump (compressor), the speed of which can be adjusted by students, a pressure vessel and an outflow system. The outflow system allows the air to escape via either a manually operated needle valve – providing an ongoing outflow, or via a solenoid valve and second needle valve – providing a step change in outflow. The vessel pressure is measured by a Bourdon type mechanical gauge along with a pressure sensor. The Bourdon gauge provides a visual indication of the pressure in the vessel and a means for students to check and calibrate the controller input from the pressure sensor.

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.
