with PLC AC500-eCo from ABB
The training device PLC-Trainer AC500 is built on a stable aluminum angle. For signal
input are integrated 6 toggle switches (on - off - momentary on) as well as two
potentiometers for analog value input 0-10 V/DC 10 mA (e.g. simulation setpoint
vs. actual temperature values). The signal input is indicated by six LEDs (5 mm).
Learning Cards can be put on the board's field "Learning Cards" and used there.
The Learning Cards show depending on the practical example, the interconnection
between sensors (e.g. toggle switch) and actuators (e.g. LED), which is controlled
by the CPU. The 45 included exercises are based on the principle "From easy to demanding"
and are printed on 45 laminated Learning Cards. You can easily replace them on the
board as required. You can store the learning cards in the included transparent
box. Furthermore it is possible to put Plug-On Modules - e.g. Motor, Traffic Lights
(available as accessories) - on the 24-pin interface connector. The integrated 24-pin
interface connector allows to connect simulation models via a ribbon cable (available
as accessories) - max. 6 in-/outputs. With the slide switch "Infrared Receiver"
one input is switched to IR receiving. The slide switch "Frequency" turns on a frequency
generator with an adjustable frequency from 50 Hz to 5 kHz. Also a "Horn" can be
Only for use in education an training:
use of the PLC trainer with CPU, programming software and programming cable from
ABB is only permitted for non-commercial education and training at schools, universities
and officially recognized educational institutions. The use in industry and handicrafts
during initial training is also permitted.
