    The PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) is the main component of an automation system. Learning how to program this device is essential for training in the fields of control and automation, mechatronics, electronics, and related areas. Local supervision of machines or processes also requires mastery of HMI (Human-Machine Interface) programming and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) software.

    PLCs are increasingly equipped with connectivity features for industrial networks and the Internet of Things (IoT). The PLCs chosen for this family are rich in both industrial protocols and IoT protocols. In this series, we use PLCs from manufacturers with a significant presence in the market: Siemens and Altus.

    Siemens is one of the most well-known and widely used brands globally, offering a development platform for all its Automation solutions, the TIA Portal.

    Altus is a Brazilian automation company with a presence in important markets such as oil and sanitation.

    The PLCs that come with the Dock Station kits are called compact PLCs and are typically used in machines and small processes. They have integrated inputs and outputs with the CPU.

    The PLCs that come with the Rack construction kits are modular PLCs, typically used in more complex processes that require more processing power. They have expandable input and output cards according to the application’s needs. They offer higher processing speed, more computational resources, and advanced functions.

    Through the Sismaq Simulator, you can expand the kit’s usage by controlling digital twins of 5 industrial machines using the physical PLC.

  • Dock Station


    These kits are focused on the study of layer 2 technologies of ISA-95, that is, control and supervisory systems. In a compact configuration, in dock station format, these kits include PLCs and HMIs from major manufacturers, and resources that allow exploration of their analog and digital inputs and outputs.

  • Rack Station


    These kits are focused on studying Layer 2 technologies of ISA-95, which means control and supervision systems. Featuring a modular rack configuration, these kits include PLCs and HMIs from leading manufacturers, along with resources to explore their analog and digital inputs and outputs, as well as additional modules such as inverters, and so on

  • Courseware

    The teaching kits are accompanied by rich teaching material with a practical focus, which provides practical proposals aimed at developing skills and competencies.

    The Student Guide is offered, with proposals for practical activities, the Educator’s Guide, with answers to activities and teaching guidance on the products, and video tutorials to assist in using the tools when using the kit.
