Amatrol’s Programmable Logic Controller PLC I/O Simulator Learning System – CompactLogix L16 (87-IOSAB53A) covers the operation and programming of programmable controllers, one of the most important and widely-used products in modern industry. Along with an Allen-Bradley L16ER CompactLogix Programmable Controller, learners will utilize the 87-IOSAB53A to practice real-world, hands-on skills used within automated line applications ranging from automotive to packaging to biotech. The 87-IOSAB53A requires a computer and any one of Amatrol’s Mechatronics Learning Systems (87-MS1 – 87-MS7) featuring the Mechatronics Learning System – CompactLogix L16 (870-AB53A).
The 87-IOSAB53A includes a PLC Simulator Module using a PLC separate from the Mechatronics cart to simulate inputs via writing PLC programs. This combination of hands-on skill practice and comprehensive curriculum will further ingrain programmable controller concepts and applications in a learner’s mind and make more advanced topics easier to comprehend. This system will cover major topic areas like: basic programming, PLC motor control, PLC timer and counter instructions, event sequencing, application development, program control instructions, and math and data move instructions.
