This video is from our main Automation-project at college HiT, back in 2005.
Sorting metal and plastic, packing metal for stock of 2 or 4 and sort plastic for stock of 4 balls.
Model was partly build when we took it over.
We installed the following to enhance the model:
* Siemens S7-300 w/Profibus controller
* High-speed input FM350 for S7-300
* As-i bus master for S7-300
* As-i bus I/O-hub (in “field”)
* Step-motor controller AT15R05
* Siemens Profibus Touch Panel TP170B
We solved the task using Siemens S7 STL, SCL and HiGraph to minimize the cycle-time and resource usage.
