Product information "Conveyor Stand for Research of Industrial Communications"

Conveyor Stand is intended for research of the most popular industrial protocols, such as Profibus, CAN, Modbus and Ethernet and study programming basics of the controllers from the most popular vendors – National Instruments and Siemens.

Laboratory stand is based on NI CompactRIO (cRIO) platform.

Laboratory stand represents belt conveyor, which is controlled by Siemens S7-300 controller. S7-300 PLC controls conveyor motor and acquires signals from infrared (IR) sensors, which are used to detect presence and count number of items on the belt conveyor. Stand includes also Robot Arm, which is controlled by cRIO controller. All control settings of the PLC are being sent from the NI cRIO controller via Profibus network.

Stand includes also power meter, which is intended to measure power consumption of the conveyor system. Meter communicates with the cRIO using Modbus protocol.
cRIO controller communicates with the personal computer to represent real-time data of the conveyor system and power meter. Communication is implemented using Ethernet network.
The software application is developed in the LabVIEW graphical programming environment and provides an interactive communication interface for data transmission between hardware modules.

Software includes list of exercises which help students to easily understand working principles of the data transmission protocols, data encoding and error detection methods, programming of the controllers, etc.

Main features of the system are:

  • Stand includes CompactRIO chassis with separate modules for each of the protocols
  • Belt conveyor with Robot Arm and IR sensors
  • Conveyor control with Siemens S7-300 PLC
  • User-friendly interface allows easy study and understanding of the protocols
  • Exercises for each of the protocols
  • User Manual with short courses for each of the protocols and exercise instructions
  • Report creation in PDF format

 

The stand is suggested in three modifications.
