Structurally, the training laboratory equipment consists of system model and control unit.
System model is represented as a metal frame where are placed:
- centrifugal pump;
- vortex pump;
- submersible pump;
- rotary vane pump;
- water flow sensor;
- pressure sensors;
- pressure switch;
- a tank simulating a layer of a liquid medium;
- ball valves;
- control valves;
- pipeline connecting the pumps to the water tank.
Control unit consists of a body from aluminum profile with mounted electrical equipment, electronic plates, front panel and a tabletop of integrated working table.
The front panel of control unit has a module design and consists of:
- input unit IU-1;
- power supply unit PU-1;
- control unit CU -1;
- measuring unit MU -1.
At the front panel are placed USB-port for connection the stand to the PC. At the rare panel of control unit is placed a port for connection the cable with module system.
The training laboratory equipment is accompanied with a:
- methodical and technical documentation for teaching stuff;
- software is designed to automate the process of collecting, storing and displaying information in the form of curves obtained during laboratory work at this training laboratory equipment. While operating, the program automatically establishes a connection with the stand, determines the start and end of the processes under studying, and also build up the measured values in real time. The program implements the ability to export the obtained data for their subsequent processing in various software packages (MS Word).
