PLC Analog Application Training | ControlLogix | Adds to 890-PECB

Model Name: PLC Analog Application Learning System - ControlLogix

Model Number: 89-AS-AB5500

Learning Topics

The PLC Analog Application Learning System – ControlLogix (89-AS-AB5500) adds to the Programmable Controller Troubleshooting Workstation (890-PECB) and the PLC Troubleshooting Learning System-AB ControlLogix (890-AB5500) to teach PLC control of analog input and output devices. Analog I/O capability enables PLCs to more precisely control processes by providing variable output signals and receiving variable input feedback from sensors. Popular applications include temperature control, liquid level control, and variable speed conveyors.

The analog training system includes an analog application station, cable assembly, Allen-Bradley ControlLogix combination analog module, student learning materials for both theory and lab, and a teacher’s assessment guide. Students will learn industry relevant skills including how to operate, interface, program and troubleshoot PLC systems using analog I/O.

Interchangeable Application Station

Amatrol’s analog training system includes an interchangeable analog application station that enables students to quickly set up the 890-PECB and 890-AB5500 systems for analog study with live components. As with other 890 application stations, the analog station attaches to the application console with quick release connectors. The station stores conveniently under the workstation when not in use.

Self-Contained Learning Platform 

The analog training system adds to the 890-PECB and 890-AB5500 systems to provide a self-contained learning platform for study of analog control. The analog application station includes a 10-turn potentiometer with 0 – 10 VDC signal and digital readout to provide an analog input to the PLC analog module, while the analog output from the PLC is displayed on a second digital readout. Power for the station is supplied from the 890-PECB.

External Analog I/O Control

The analog training system also provides a convenient, compatible interface to external analog devices, enabling students to extend their study of real world applications, such as process control. The analog application station supports connections of four analog inputs and two analog outputs. The station is compatible with both voltage and current signals with a selector switch setting. It also includes 16 discrete I/O connections and indicators to support control of processes that require a combination of discrete and analog I/O.

Optional Online eBooks

As an option, the curriculum contained in the Learning Activity Packets (LAPs) is also available as an Amatrol eBook. eBooks look like a real book and allow users to flip between pages with ease. Enhanced features, such as keyword searches and zoom controls, enable users to quickly locate and view information. A great learning tool, eBooks are available online through Amatrol’s Learning Management System (LMS). Amatrol’s comprehensive curriculum advances learners’ understanding of concepts at the click of a button. High-quality graphics paired with hands-on, applied skills keep learners focused and engaged in their work. Amatrol’s eBooks allow courses to be taken completely online anywhere with an Internet connection!

Student Reference Guide

A sample copy of this course’s Student Reference Guide is included with the learning system. Sourced from the multimedia curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. If you would like to purchase additional Student Reference Guides for your program, contact your local Amatrol representative for more information.
