The SMC AUTOMATE-200 is a compact, highly automated training system for students in mechatronics, automation, and industrial technology courses.
The Training System Concept
Simulating an urban recycling plant as a reference, students use an integrated and motivating context to become familiar with technologies such as pneumatics, sensors, electric motors, PLCs, etc., in an enjoyable and intuitive way. Using completely industrial components we develop skills in:
- schematic analysis
- industrial troubleshooting
- automation system design
- creating technical documentation
- setting up/commissioning of automation
- understanding technical documentation
- operation and programming
AUTOMATE-200 includes up to ten functional blocks that can produce an infinite number of configurations, emulating different processes and making it possible to perform an endless number of activities with different levels of difficulty.
The raw material used in the process includes parts with different colors (light/ dark), materials (plastic/ metal) and shapes (with or without hole). During the last phase of the process, the parts are sorted and stored in containers.
This version, in addition to including the functional modules of the 200A version, is mounted on a trolley base with a fold-away control panel for the PLC and all electrical connections.
Common elements in all versions: Power supply, air treatment unit, anodized aluminum structure, control keypad, solenoid valve block, labels for cables, speed controllers, control PLC*, user manual and practice manual and Multimedia CD.
