SMC Automated Process Control Training System

The IPC-200 is SMC’s unique training solution specific to automation and process control. Commonly used for training in the food & beverage production and processing industries as well as pharmaceutical industry, the IPC-200 brings real-world industrial skills and technologies to students’ fingertips with an exciting and project-based tabletop training system.

A fully modular and flexible automate process control system, the IPC-200 is comprised of three modules which can work individually or as a complete process line. Various configurations can be created to adapt the IPC-200 equipment to our users different requirements and budgets.

IPC-200 emulates a liquid production and bottling plant and includes the technologies used in a continuous process industry, such as pneumatics, electric motors, sensors, continuous processes, programmable controllers, industrial communications, etc.

It is built entirely from industrial materials so that student works with the same elements found in the working environment.

SCADA Software


The system emulates an automated drink bottling and production plant. The system consists of three modules that share information through an industrial communications network and can be controlled through a SCADA application.  The three modules are:

  • Production
  • Bottling
  • Warehousing/Palletizing


IPC-201: Production Station

This first station represents the production and mixing of the liquid. It has three tanks: two at the side which store the raw material (liquid) and another in the middle where the mixing takes place.

This version of the production station can control digital variables.

IPC-201C: Production Station with Regulation and Control of Analog Variables

This version of the production station incorporates a series of elements regulate and control TEMPERATURE, LEVEL, PRESSURE and FLOW RATE.

This equipment is specially designed for the development of professional skills required in continuous process industry (in sectors such as food, pharmaceutical, chemical, petroleum, etc.).

The troubleshooting simulation system TROUB-200 is included, which generates up to 16 different breakdowns to be diagnosed by the user.

IPC-202: Bottling Station

The second IPC-200 station fills the bottles and feeds and positions lids. The bottles then move on to a third station for storage. All the operations carried out are distributed around a 6 positions index plate.

There are two versions of this station, depending on the bottle feeding module selected: a version with a gravity bottle feeder and another with a more complex feeder with position detection and automatic correction.

IPC-203: Warehouse and Palletizing Station

This station reproduces a 25 positions automatic warehouse by using a system based on three cartesian coordinate (two horizontal electric axes and one vertical pneumatic axis).

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System

It allows the following processes in the first module:

  • Supervise variables such as pressure, flow, level and temperature.
  • Change PID setpoint and control parameters.
  • Open-loop mode.
  • Closed-loop via PLC mode.
  • Closed-loop via PID mode.

It also allows the three system modules to be controlled and monitored remotely through a graphic interface implemented in a software application:

SMC Skills Gap

Our SMC Training Systems are designed around SKILLS.

The skills needed by students, technicians, and engineers to be successful in industry today;

The skills for a changing workforce and rapidly evolving industrial future; and,

The skills to create the future leaders of industry.

SMC Training Systems are focused on critical thinking skills and technical mastery of technologies and concepts - our goal is NOT to train students on how to follow instructions; but rather how to empower oneself with the tools (technical aptitude) to be successful in the career of their choosing.


SMC's Technology Trainers are built upon the principle that a solid foundation is paramount to creating students with technical expertise in their field, regardless of how advanced it may be.

SMC Technology Trainers are best-in-class modular training platforms that are complete with step-by-step curriculum and user manuals, simulation tools, and engaging digital solutions to further expand student understanding.

  • Basic Electrical Trainers - AC, DC, and Solid State
  • Pneumatics and Electro-Pneumatics
  • Hydraulics and Electro-Hydraulics
  • Mechanical Drives
  • Programmable Logic Controllers and Human Machine Interfaces
  • Industrial Robotics
  • Industrial (Motor) Controls
  • Process Control
  • Sensors and Smart Sensors
  • Vacuum Technology

Award Winning Simulation Software - autoSIM-200

SMC's autoSIM-200 software is the best turn-key software package for designing, viewing, simulating, monitoring and controlling Pneumatic, Hydraulic, Electrical, and Electronic Circuits.

autoSIM-200 is a one-for-one complement of SMC's hands-on training systems, allowing students to train by wiring circuits and programming systems virtually before applying them to the physical system.

The 2D and 3D packages allow for students to complete actual lab activities and curriculum exercises in the virtual simulator before completing them on the hands-on training equipment.

Comprehensive eLearning

Our engaging and interactive, web-based eLearning represents a major achievement of providing students "hands-on" training access in a virtual environment.

All major areas of Automation are taught in easy-to-digest bite-sized nuggets broken up into different topics such as Alternating Currents, Direct Currents, Solid State Devices, Pneumatics, Hydraulics, Robotics, PLCs, Sensors, Process Control and More!
