EAB4223/EEB5223 INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION & CONTROL

SYSTEMS

Laboratory: Part 1
At the end of this laboratory activities, students should be able to:
1.

design a system to measure pressure/temperature/flow/level, monitor and
control, using transmitter(s), electronic recorder, electronic controller and
electronic valve positioner.

2.

develop a loop drawing for a simple control loop, consisting of the various
necessary instruments, like transmitter, recorder, controller and valve positioner.

3.

perform calibration and configuration on the appropriate instruments (HART
communicator, pressure transmitter, electronic recorder and electronic controller).
