Process automation is a wide and complex field, encompassing varying degrees of skills and expertise. There is a seemingly infinite amount to learn about methods, techniques, and technologies used in process measurement and control. But using small-scale models that show the basic principles is a smart and effective way to mitigate complexity for learners.
This is why we devised a series of entry-level learning systems that help students – from complete beginners in a STEM-like approach to advanced students in technical schools – grasp the fundamentals of closed-loop control and process engineering.
Training equipment in particular answers the needs of future process technicians or operators, instrumentation technicians, and chemical or electrical/electronic technicians and engineers.
Most training systems are based on the Modular Production System platform (MPS?) tailored for process automation, to allow expansion to factory automation. Knowledge conveyed through the systems is applicable in a wide range of industries.

EduKit PA is a mobile and practical option for beginners in process automation. It is ideally suited for small budgets, restricted space, or an initial introduction to measuring technology and closed-loop control.
The interaction of technology, software, and structured courseware fits seamlessly into both professional training and general technical training. The learning concept supports experimental learning, especially pertinent in the context of Integrative STEM learning.
The MPS? PA Compact Workstation provides the greatest possible variety of industrial training with more than one control loop.
Its compact size provides industrial measurement, open- and closed-loop control, four basic control loops (level, flow rate, pressure, and temperature), and learning scenarios for automation (sensor technology, PLC, operation, and monitoring) based on continuous processes.
MPS? PA stations represent the most important continuous, closed processes, that can be found in the industry. Four stations are available: filtration, mixing, reactor, and bottling. Their control loops provide content for designing demanding courses in measuring and control engineering. The open interface concept also allows stations to be combined to form a small-scale, process engineering learning factory.
The MPS? PA 204 complete system bundles all 4 MPS? PA stations to provide everything needed for an efficient start in measurement and control technology. It features successful project work based on modular construction, offering accessible, hands-on process technology. Project ideas can be implemented in a flash, and risk-free.
The Process Control Training Systems offer an affordable, relatively compact learning program integrating real-world, industrial components, software, and protocols.
Circuits mimic industry-specific process control applications to familiarize students with the fundamentals of instrumentation and process control. Control of pressure, flow, level, temperature, and pH processes are covered, as well as advanced techniques, such as feedforward control, second-order control, and cascade control.
An Instrumentation workstation, with PLCs, recorders, and transmitters, is also available.
