The Smart Manufacturing Workstation (990-SM10) by Amatrol is a portable training system designed to teach hands-on Industry 4.0 applications such as wireless temperature monitoring, web-based condition monitoring, web-based power monitoring, and wireless production counting all within a portable workstation. This system in an ideal training tool for future Smart Factory and Automation technicians. The Smart Manufacturing Workstation was developed in partnership with the Clean Energy Smart Manufacturing Innovation Institute (CESMII).

Learning Outcomes

The Smart Manufacturing Workstation includes real-world components found in Smart Factory environments that learners will use to practice hands-on skills. This system also allows for user-supplied remote sensors to be used with the BorgConnect Node to test energy efficiency. Several of the sensors – including the Wi-Fi temperature sensor – can be used to monitor external, real-world components and systems. Learning outcomes include:

  • Introduction to IIoT and cloud computing
  • Photoelectric sensor configuration
  • Smart sensor configuration and monitoring
  • Smart condition monitoring sensors
  • Smart RFID reader configuration and operation
  • Smart sensor testing and configuration using IO-Link Bluetooth application

In addition to partnering with CESMII on the 990-SM10, Amatrol worked with 5G to implement their BorgConnect line into this revolutionary product. Users will practice with the BorgConnect Hub and Node to monitor temperature control, energy efficiency, and vibration monitoring skills using BorgConnect software. Learners will also use Rockwell CCW PLC programming software for developing I/O control skills.
