Industrial Control Teaching Set (Allen Bradley)

This training system offers a platform that enables students to perform a comprehensive range of PLC programming tasks using an Allen Bradley controller and a conveyor belt/pneumatic sorting application.

The Industrial Control Teaching Set – Allen Bradley (290-00/AB) also includes access to a unique software simulation to help introduce the basic concepts of PLCs and ladder logic at a fundamental level. This enables the whole class to carry out simulated PLC control tasks and activities at the same time.

Using this software, groups of students create ladder logic programs to control devices on the trainer using a graphical-based programmable logic control (PLC) editor. These programs can be used to control either the hardware or the simulator. Used in this mode, only a simple USB connection is required to enable the ladder logic software to control the hardware unit.

As students progress through the learning content they develop more complex programming skills, and step up a level to use the Allen Bradley Micro820 PLC and associated programming software.
