Many teaching institutions worldwide are working on distance learning applications. In this field, remote laboratories are enabling intensive use of university facilities, while aiding the work of professors and students. The present paper introduces a platform designed to be used in industrial automation practical work. The platform is communicable through the Internet, includes programmable logic controllers that can be programmed with the open software CoDeSys, and has various sensors and actuators used in industrial installations. The various experimental stations of the platform, and the proposed laboratory exercises are described. The results of having used the platform with students are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 9 figures.)
