The PCT-M2 Level control trainer system enables the study of the principles in Level control and monitoring in a system. The system is self-contained and only requires connection to a PC through USB. The control module is contained on the unit and has a mimic of the systems and LED indication. The PCT-M2 can be controlled through the graphical based software supplied with the unit providing PID control.
The system comprises a pump connected through PVC pipes from a reservoir tank to a process tank and a valve to control the flow out of the process tank into the reservoir tank. The level in the process tank is measured using a pressure transducer and a needle type drain valve is fitted to provide a disturbance to the system. The clear tanks and pipes allow the student to see clearly the process they are controlling.
