Set 3 - Measurement of Distances and Filling Levels

in Industrial Applications
Task

Motor / Compressor

Silo

max

min

Sensor

Refill plastic granules in a supply


container by means of a compressor
when the filling falls below the
minimum level.

Drive the compressor by a motor


operated with a nominal speed.

Read the filling level in the supply


container with a sonar sensor.

Stop the filling process when the


maximum level in the supply container
has been reached.

Display and adapt the minimum and


maximum filling level and the current
filling level in a text display.
