Abstract
Learning activities in the industrial automation course requires a comprehensive experiment. Expensive lab equipment has implications for the quality of learning. Innovation is needed to produce media that can enhance the skills of learners in the operation and programming of industrial automation devices. This paper introduces the results of a preliminary design of training kit that has a real concept of mobile plant. This equipment was designed to practice basic and advanced logics in the control systems. The device included the real-time control system with open-source software, and also came with the manual book and job sheet. The availability of this device is expected to improve the ability of problem solving in actual control systems.
