Simulators

Automation » Simulators

To simplify the learning and programming of PLCs, De Lorenzo has made available some applications such as Input/output simulator, Traffic light, Parking and Lift simulators and, to satisfy a wide range, has designed two lines addressed to medium and low levels.

Some of them (the higher level) have the facility to be wired to PLCs through flat cables instead of point-to- point and have also faults simulators which can be inserted through micro-switches.

They are recommended for high schools.

Moreover, it allows the PLC potentialities to be pointed out. The board includes 32 switches on 4 columns for PLC input enabling, with a LED signaling the on/off state of the individual switch and the possibility of marking the references on special tags that can be cancelled; moreover, 4 outputs at 24 Vdc/1 A are available, internally powered. The connection to the PLC can be carried out through terminals or connector.
Power supply: single-phase from mains.
Complete with educational manual and software.

It includes 8 switches for PLC input and 8 LED for PLC output. The connection to the PLC can be carried out through terminals.
Power supply: single-phase from mains.
Complete with educational manual and software.
NOTE: It can be connected to a PLC such as the DL 2110AH.

DL 2113RM

TWO-FLOOR PARKING GARAGE SIMULATOR

The system represents a two-storey parking garage where it is possible to realistically simulate all the sequences that a car driver has to perform when he wants to use an automated parking garage. The automatic control is performed through a PLC, whose program manages the displays signaling vacant and full places, both at the entrance and at every floor, the opening and closing of the in and out barriers, the lighting intensity at each floor, regulated by the presence of at least one car detected by special sensors, and the smoke and fire detectors. The number of cars in the parking garage is displayed through LED, whose control is assigned to an electronic circuit separated from the PLC.
Complete with educational manual and software.
Power supply: single-phase from mains.
NOTE: It can be connected to a PLC such as the DL 2210A or the DL 2210B.

DL 2120

TWO-ZONE PARKING GARAGE SIMULATOR

It represents a two-zone parking garage where it is possible to realistically simulate the sequences that a car driver has to perform when he wants to use an automated parking garage. The automatic control is performed through a PLC, whose program manages the displays signaling vacant and full places for both zones and the opening and closing of the in and out barriers. The number of cars in the parking garage is displayed through LED.
Complete with educational manual and software.
Power supply: single-phase from mains.
NOTE: It can be connected to a PLC such as the DL 2110AH.

DL 2120RM

SMART TRAFFIC LIGHTS SIMULATOR

This system represents a crossing between two one‐way streets, each controlled by a semaphore and provided with three pedestrian crossings with semaphores, too. The automatic control of the semaphore system is performed through PLC not with the normal cyclic timing: only the presence of at least one car determines the green signal of the relevant semaphore, allowing the transit of all the cars between the two detecting sensors.
The dialogue between the semaphores of the two roads allows the alternation of the green signal as a function of the traffic intensity, while the pedestrian crossing is on request. The present cars are displayed through LED, whose control is assigned to an electronic circuit separated from the PLC.
Complete with educational manual and software.
Power supply: single‐phase from mains.
NOTE: It can be connected to a PLC such as the DL 2210A or the DL 2210B.

DL 2121

SMART TRAFFIC LIGHTS SIMULATOR

It represents a crossing between two streets, each controlled by a semaphore with pedestrian crossing, also controlled by a semaphore. The automatic control of the semaphore system is performed through PLC, as a function of the arrival of the cars or of the call by a pedestrian.
All the above situations are simulated through pushbuttons.
NOTE: It can be connected to a PLC such as the DL 2110AH.

DL 2121RM

LIFT SIMULATOR

It simulates a three‐stop lift with real processing procedures. Lift car up‐ down manual cycle with automatic PLC control and management. The lift car motion is displayed by LED. Booking obtained through buttons, on priority basis and independently from the lift car position. Lift car door open indication. Upper and lower limit switches to avoid programming mistakes. Connection to PLC through terminals.

The model consists of a real three-stop scaled down lift and allows an innovative approach to PLC control and management.
The model includes:
• lift car up-down and position visual signaling at each floor
• photocell on the lift car door to stop its closing in presence of an obstacle
• booking to be effected through buttons with flashing signaling, on priority basis and independently from the lift car position
• lift car geared motor, hoist and electromagnetic brake
• floor, safety and lift car deceleration limit switches
• lift car and floor door open-shut motors
