Gilbert, from Schneider Electric, is in CKN on a regular basis, to develop some mock-up with students. This project means to learn them how to program a PLC device and a mock-up.
On this particular mock-up, the water-pumping system is driven by a PLC program designed by students. Internally, an Arduino micro-controller manage the system's security by checking the instructions sent by the PLC.
The display, provides a complete dashboard on sensors' states, and PLC's error management.
Through this project, the CKN organization will learn to control a water network, which is necessary regarding the life-sized project to come at the end of year.
