H2I Group offers several instrumentation & process control programs and labs that are designed to provide hands-on training opportunities for your students, which will prepare them for jobs in today’s workplace.
FESTO is a leading global manufacturer of pneumatic and electromechanical systems, components and controls for industrial automation, with more than 11,500 employees in 56 national headquarters serving more than 180 countries.
For more than 80 years, Festo has continuously elevated the state of manufacturing with innovations and optimized motion control solutions that deliver higher performance, more profitable automated manufacturing equipment. Their dedication to the advancement of automation extends beyond technology to the education of current and future automation and robotics designers with simulation tools, teaching programs, and on-site services.
The Lab-Volt Instrumentation and Process Control systems are designed for hands-on training in the measurement, control and troubleshooting of industrial processes. The trainers can operate independently, or be combined together in different configurations to simulate more-complex processes. The Flow, Level, Heat Exchanger and Analytic stations use water as the process media, while Pressure and Temperature stations are based on air. Student courseware starts with an introduction to the basic characteristics of main process variables, and proceeds progressively to the study of process fundamentals, calibration of sensing devices and transmitters, and the operation of microprocessor-based controllers. Closed-loop control of processes and troubleshooting exercises are an integral part of the training program, and computer-based training and simulation software provides flexibility when adding to or upgrading existing programs.
