The Experiment that can be developed with the module IT.ID50MS includes:

  • Principles of electrical control of  DC motor
  • The conveyor operation
  • The fiber optical sensor

The module IT-ID50MS has been designed to enable the linear pieces transportation along one axis, in the two directions. The conveyor is driven by a bi-directional DC motor that provides the movement of the belt. A fiber optic sensor detects the work piece on the conveyor belt. The module IT-ID50MS, as a whole, is assembled on an aluminum section bar structure easily transportable inside the laboratory. The complete control of the module IT-ID50MS is carried out by a PLC (optional) linked to the system through an I/O interface box. The PLC programming software allows the development of a wide set of automation experiences with the module IT-ID50MS, working in an integrated cycle or in a standalone mode. Finally, the module IT-ID50MS supervision is carried out with the software.


It includes I/O interface box with:

  • Ø = 2 mm terminals
  • Cable with 25-pole D-SUB plug connector

Besides performing the function of control board for the module, this interface box also enables the students to carry out electrical measurements on the components of the module.

  • The control of the module is possible through the following PLC training panel (not supplied):
  • PLC training panels IT.ID100PLC manages the module through Ø = 2 mm terminals.
  • 24 V DC power supply is available on board.
