The following setups are used for research in the fields of robotics and industrial automation.
Research projects on industrial automation, control systems, and robotics
Festo Didactic process industry demonstrator plant with two tanks and a custom built storage tank system with five tanks.
Each system has a pump, several valves, and all tanks but one have a level sensor. Additionally, the right tank of the left plant has a heating element and a temperature sensor, as well as an agitator.
The following two setups are utilized within the laboratory part of the 376.087 VU Industrial Automation.
This setup consists of two tanks, several valves, a pump, various sensors (such as level sensors or flow rate sensors), pipes, and a Rockwell PLC with analog and digital I/O modules.
The plant is utilized to implement process-related recipes with PLCs.
The resistor sorter consists of a portal robot with Beckhoff motors, a vibrating feeder, a resistor measurement station, and a Beckhoff PLC.
This plant is utilized to implement event-driven systems according to the IEC 61499. The intended task is to sort the thermistor platelets based to their resistance into one of the pallets.
