Control technology

Taking control in education and training

Open and closed-loop logic control, as well as monitoring of manufacturing and production steps, are fundamental aspects of automation technology. They’re used to organize production processes reliably, safely, quickly, and cost-effectively. Control technology is used as a basic function in a variety of applications and industry sectors – at the same time, it plays a significant role in Industry 4.0/Industrial Internet of Things.

PLC

Receiving signals and sending commands – that’s the concept and the principle of logic control for production steps. Ever since the industrial revolution, people have been pursuing the goal of monitoring manufacturing and production steps and organizing them safely and efficiently.

From manual control to mechanical, electrical, and programmable logic controllers, control technology is the starting point of automation technology and the companion to Industry 4.0/Industrial Internet of Things.

Whether it's the automotive, pharmaceutical, or food industry – control and PLC technology constitutes the central intelligence of all production systems and is therefore used in a wide range of industry sectors.

Control, Process, Learning

We offer vertically and horizontally consistent training solutions in the field of automation and PLC technology.

This enables us to find the perfect balance between clarity on the one hand, and maximum industrial relevance and practical transfer on the other.

  • From the simple to the complex model
  • From manual control to relay
  • From the mini digital controller to the PLC

Future-oriented training is ultimately about reliable and efficient automation of production processes.

  • Automation learning systems must be matched to future work environments.
  • Processes must come as close as possible to those used in actual production.
  • The training content and methods must lead to professional competence that skilled workers can use to secure their own and their companies’ future.

The EduTrainer? Universal

Do you rely on PLCs from global market leaders, or less well-known, but innovative control concepts? Does your training tend to focus on mastering processes and technologies rather than safe handling of wires and tools? If so, the EduTrainer? Universal is the perfect solution!
Whatever is most important for you, we offer the EduTrainer? Universal you need:

  • Fully set-up and configured, or your own design (online configurator)
  • With PLCs from Siemens, Allen-Bradley, Festo, and other leading manufacturers
  • With or without:
    – Power supply unit
    – 4 mm safety sockets
    – SysLink system interface
EduTrainer Compact

The EduTrainer? Compact

Do you want to teach PLC programming in addition to relay circuits in your fluid power lab? Do you want a device that suits your workbench? Does your training tend to focus on mastering processes and technologies rather than safe handling of wires and tools?

The EduTrainer? Compact is the ideal control system for fluid power labs and has proven itself worldwide.

How to select the right EduTrainer?

We recommend using our standard versions. Select the EduTrainer? you want.

Benefits:

  • Cost-effective solution
  • Perfectly matched technology
  • Quick delivery

Configure your ideal PLC.

If you can't find a suitable standard version, you can configure the EduTrainer? yourself in our online configurator with one of the PLCs offered there.

Online configuration

With listed PLCs

Online configurator

If you can't find a suitable standard version, you can configure the EduTrainer? yourself in our online configurator with one of the PLCs offered there. Configure the EduTrainer you want, and ask us for a quote.

Benefits:

  • Customized solution
  • Convenient selection from listed components

With other PLC

If the required PLC is not listed in the online configurator, the EduTrainer? can be configured with the PLC you prefer as an EduTrainer? “with special PLC.”

Benefits:

  • Customized solution
  • Any PLC available on the market (as long as external dimensions and connections are compatible)

For user-installation of the PLC

Perhaps you already have a PLC and would like to install it yourself, or you want to modify and adapt the EduTrainer?. If so, you can simply configure an EduTrainer? "without PLC."

Benefits:

  • Maximum flexibility in device set-up
  • Any PLC available on the market (as long as external dimensions and connections are compatible)
