Components: sensors / instrumentation
To control processes, first of all it is necessary to record the process variables. The different properties of the process variables, but also of the substances used and the respective aggregate states, make different measuring methods necessary. The different measuring methods can be illustrated in a simple way using the instructional units selected here.
Adjustment of level sensors
Familiarisation with different industry standard components with a 4-20mA current loop interface using the example of level measurement.
Principles of industrial sensors2
Familiarisation with key sensors: mode of operation and application.
Strain gauge training system
Experimental introduction to temperature measurement: methods, areas of application, characteristics.
Fundamentals of temperature measurement
Manually operated open samples of various drive components and elements.
Calibrating a pressure sensor
