Westburne’s new demo training room was developed to give us the ability to demonstrate our products in an automated system while simultaneously training staff and customers. “We hope that customers wanting to provide a proof of concept for their end user will book the room and a member of our team will help them showcase the advantages of the product” says Andrew Ward, Automation Software Specialist/ PLC/HMI.
This room consists of over 32 feet of hardware, broken into sections; motion, drive, sensing & safety, I/O, HMI and controllers. All of which have been connected using the Panduit Connected enterprise cabling and wire way, which demonstrates the proper layout our customers should be implementing in their systems.
All products in the new demo room have Ethernet connectivity and will be connected to our operator work station, server cabinet and Canada-wide remote locations, allowing us to control anything on the wall from either the location or using the Tosibox remote access Lock 200 which will allow us to control and view the room remotely. By using IP cameras, our team can demonstrate our products right from a customer’s site. This demo room was a team effort from our Automation team and Vendors and will be a resource for all our teams and customers across Westburne and Canada.
