Sensors training system aims at demonstrating most common types of sensors used in mechanical industrial applications, their functions, and principle of operation. The system can be considered as a good reference that helps trainees grasp a good knowledge about almost all sensors related to mechanical engineering including temperature sensors , pressure sensors , proximity sensors , flow sensors , load sensors & etc.

                                     
  • The system consists of a stand-alone training unit in addition to an accessories kit included in the unit drawer.
  • The system features various sensors fixed on the front panel with their labels printed underneath to help students recognize each type.
  • Mechanical sensors included in the system are :
    • Compression load cell
    • Ultrasonic proximity sensor,
    • RTD temperature sensor (resistance temperature detector)
    • NTC temperature sensor (negative temperature coefficient)
    • K-type thermocouple
    • Humidity sensor
    • Pressure sensor,
    • Hall effect turbine flow rate sensor
    • Air pump
    • Water tank
    • Cartridge heater
  • A small panel for the temperature sensors is fixed on the main front panel.
  • This panel displays a chart for each temperature sensor that shows the type of its input and output signals.
  • Three types of temperature sensors are fixed under this small panel and connected to a cartridge heater below.
  • The cartridge heater is a device used for heating metal parts by insertion into drilled holes.
  • Cartridge heater moves along its rail using the heater directing knob in order to provide heat to the particular temperature sensor under test & allow investigating each type of temperature sensors individually.
  • The proximity sensor is activated when an object is presented within its detection zone.
  • Proximity sensor has a detection LED that lights up to indicate the detection of this object.
  • The pressure sensor is connected to a piston cylinder by a hose and when force is applied to the piston cylinder pressure is created and therefore pressure sensor is activated.
  • The load cell is activated when weights are applied to it , these weights are converted into voltage (millivolts) then to weight (grams).
  • Humidity sensor is fixed on the front panel exposed to the room ambient air to be able to detect air humidity.
  • The system is provided with a special setup used to perform the hall effect turbine flow sensor experiment.
  • This setup consists of an air pump and a water tank.
  • When the air is pumped in the water tank, the water is forced to flow through the hall effect turbine flow sensor which in turn and based on its operation theory detects the speed of water flow and consequently measure its value.
  • The accessories kit in the unit drawer includes:
    • Weights
    • Power cable
    • Handheld temperature sensor
    • Connection cables
  • The system is equipped with DAQ software used to read sensors signals and display it on the connected PC.
  • All sensors readings and measurements are displayed on the software along with corresponding curves and graphs.
