This paper presents a didactic piece of equipment developed at the University of Burgos in Spain for the teaching-learning process of modern industrial automation and industrial informatics in a collaborative learning environment. The equipment is designed using an open and flexible architecture, taking into account the real industrial environment and the possibility of working in groups, in which students play different roles. It is shown that the use of this kind of equipment in active learning environments increases the motivation of the students and improves the results, with more students achieving the learning objectives. Moreover, the evaluation of the students through anonymous surveys shows the good acceptance of the students of this novel learning technique.
