Festo MPS PA Compact Workstation

Festo MPS PA Compact Workstation

The MPS PA Compact Workstation offers Huge flexibility. Controllers and operating units are not permanently installed, but are simply clicked into place in the ER mounting frame. This enables the controller, operating unit or touch panel to be replaced in next to no time. Option: refrigeration engineering
The standard version of the MPS PA Compact Workstation provides 4 control loops. In addition, a cooling unit with heat exchanger and a water/air cooler are available. This results in even more options for temperature control. Networked technologies An increasing number of valves with pneumatic drives are being used in water supply and disposal. This is safer and more energy efficient. Therefore, no modern learning system should be without a 2-way ball valve with pneumatic process drive and signal box.

It represents the increasing integration of different technologies in process automation. Professional performance recording. The Sentron PAC3200 multifunction measuring unit from Siemens records and saves measured values such as voltage, current and energy consumption, allowing analysis of the network quality. The unit can be incorporated into master control systems and energy management systems via Ethernet. On the trail of waste Identifying potential savings means first of all: measuring current consumption. The Wattmeter acts as a smart meter for training systems with a 24 V DC power supply and a maximum of 120 Watts. A switchable interface for 0 – 10 V DC or 4 – 20 mA is integrated for data transmission. Ethernet is available as an option. Hot topic: energy efficiency As everywhere in automation, software plays an outstanding role in the Compact Workstation, e.g. in measuring technology. The process data can be clearly visualized using the measuring software and then analyzed by either the whole class or as group work.
