In the following article a detailed description of a laboratory station which is used to broaden engineering students’ knowledge of control system design is given. Exact construction details of the station have been presented along with its 3D model and wiring diagram. Multiple figures have been included in order to illustrate the whole process of developing the before mentioned laboratory stand in order to clarify the undertaken design approach. Also, students’ skills and knowledge developed with use of the devised laboratory station are presented.
