FluidLab-PA closed-loop

Control Engineering in Focus

FluidLab-PA closed-loop using FluidLab-PA step by step to teach and demonstrate the fundamentals of control technology. The EasyPort is used to connect the PC and real hardware, e.g. the EduKit PA, the MPS PA compact workstation, the MPS PA filtration station, mixing, reactor, filling or the EDS Water Management stations.


Parameterize sensor values with factor and offset to display the physical values as well as signal attenuation via mean value filter for the analogue input signals. Display of the physical value in the variable unit field. Further setting options are the inversion of the controller sense, Y-offset for continuous control and the selection of the simulation mode.

Menu: Measure
All binary and analogue process data, for example the signal states of the sensors, process fittings and the pump, can be displayed graphically and evaluated directly. Functions such as selecting the measuring channels, adjusting the test time or cursor evaluation with zoom function are available for recording the sensor characteristic curve and determining a step response.

Menu: Characteristic Curve
The characteristic curve of an actuator (e.g. pump or proportional valve) is examined from different points of view (voltage on flow, flow on pressure, pressure on voltage).

Menu: 2-point Controller
Typical applications are level and temperature control systems.

Menu: Continuous Control
Experiment, configure and optimize control processes (P, PI, PD or PID controllers) with immediate effect in the process. Controlled systems can be operated at the click of a mouse. Easy documentation of the control parameter is possible. The measured values and curve progressions can be comprehensively documented. The block diagram can be displayed as a function menu for all continuous controllers with current numerical values.

Industrial Controller Functions
Plant operation as in a process control system. Setpoints can be specified and manual/automatic controller switching is possible.

A simulated process model illustrates the process identically to the operation of the real hardware.
