engineering

Control Engineering is an indispensable branch of all
engineering specializations. The TecQuipment Control Engineering Range has been
developed to reflect
practical control problems as they occur in a variety of real engineering
situations. The equipment has been designed to be flexible and can beused for
teaching at arange of academic levels, from basic familiarization courses through to degree
level and beyond.

The physical parameters covered include temperature, level
and speed, unstable and multi-variable control systems, servo mechanisms and
process simulation. Both analogue and digital control techniques are covered,
the
controllers being supported by user-friendly, menu driven software packages to
provide simulation and real time digital control of the systems.

Transducer Systems Laboratory Overview
The increase in scale and complexity of modern engineering equipment and the
need to both monitor and control its performance has resulted in the rapid
growth in importance of transducer technology. This extends from simple single
point monitoring of a physical parameter up to multiple point monitoring and
control of large systems. In many applications the actual monitoring, display
and control is achieved via dedicated computers, which are suitably interfaced
to the system. Applications where this trend has been most noticeable include
aircraft, shipping and all forms of industrial plant. The object of the
TecQuipment Systems Laboratory is to provide practical experience in
Instrumentation and Transducer Technology for engineering students in an easy to
use, safe and low-cost environment.
