The Online Process Plant Unit - Operate and Tune a Real Loop

The Learn Control Systems - Online Process Plant Unit

Operate and tune a real process control loop. Unlike simulators, this process control loop has two (2) real valves with 0.3% deadband in them. Tune the plant the way you want to...

The process loop (LIC-100) can compare control mode responses (P, PI, and PID) with a click of the button. Add a load disturbance. Adjust the load on the continuous flow through tank (TK-100) from 50% to 100% load (Upset).

Change the setpoint and use the level control valve in automatic or manual mode. When the level control valve (LCV-100) is in manual, it can be adjusted between 0% and 100%. It has bumpless transfer, when changing between manual to automatic mode.

You can can tune the process control loop yourself. Use open-loop or closed-loop tuning. The trending chart can be paused and restarted, to read values and do your calculations for tuning. The online process plant has online user help in video and PDF formats, that open in a separate browser tab.


The Operating Hours Are 8 AM to 11 PM Eastern Standard Time – EST Time Zone.

Study PLC and HMI Programming - Download the Software Free

Programmable Controllers and Process Automation

Download new and archived Rockwell programming software to program most PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers)
and HMIs (Human Machine Interface) all with activation and runs on computer for simulation.

View the complete high quality video lessons on programming courses for PLCs and HMIs on simulators and real equipment.

This software allows you to run a SoftPLC, SoftLogix 5800, same as a ControlLogix 5000 plc that runs on your computer desktop. You will also download the software to program it: program with RSLogix 5000, RSLogix 500 v8.3 and CCW -
Connected Components Workbench (Standard Edition with PLC Simulator).

You can control real remote I/O (input/output). You can program standard HMIs (Human Machine Interface) with this software and talk to the Simulated PLCs and run a HMI on your desktop.

You can also program Allen-Bradley MicroLogix, SLC 500, CompactLogix, SoftLogix 5800 and the popular ControlLogix PLCs.

Study College Industrial Instrumentation and Automation - Free

Industrial Instrumentation and Industrial Automation

Instrumentation and control are interdisciplinary fields

They require knowledge of chemistry, mechanics, electricity and magnetism, electronics, microcontrollers and microprocessors, software languages, process control, and even more such as the principles of pneumatics and hydraulics and communications.

This is what makes instrumentation and control so interesting and instructive.
