Description

On completion of this module the student will demonstrate improved skills in advanced systems in pneumatics and electro-pneumatics.

The student will have gained further PLC programming techniques.

The student will also be introduced to SCADA software packages and the techniques employed in their configuration and deployment.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Design and build advanced pneumatic systems up to four cylinders (including pick and place).

2.

Apply sequential function chart (aka Grafcet or state-transition) methods to control sequential processes including selective and parallel branching techniques.

3.

Broaden knowledge of   simple programming instructions to include the use of applied instructions and register use.

4.

Demonstrate a proficiency in the design and development of a HMI

5.

Aquire the necessary skills to produce visual models of real process events.

6.

Demonstrate the ability to create tag names and initiate a project utilising SCADA software.

7.

Demonstrate a proficiency in the design and development of a HMI

8.

Broaden knowledge of the theory behind and the techniques employed in program design.

9.

Use visual programming techniques (i.e. Labview) to interface with industrial hardware

Teaching and Learning Strategies
