Automation model of an industrial garage door - HTL Mödling
The idea for the project
How did the project come to be?
The idea for the project came while replacing a defective Dahlander switch on a lathe. The students, Christian and Fabian, already had a project with a PLC in mind and began to draw up initial plans for the automation model for an industrial garage door.
The fully fleshed out project that resulted from this idea was to develop a garage door – represented by a roller shutter – that could be controlled and monitored with light curtains, limit switches and a program.
What is your proposed solution and how do you plan to implement it?
The garage door will be implemented with a motorized roller shutter from the company Guttmann. The setup should present a realistic scenario of traffic entering and exiting the warehouse. The simulated traffic through the garage door will be controlled using a PLC and will be illustrated with a traffic light.
