The Industrial Controls Training System is designed to teach the theory and techniques of electric motor controllers. It allows students to select and mount control devices to form typical control circuits, and to troubleshoot them once a fault is inserted. The system has unique controls training capabilities, which are enhanced by its modularity and its instructor-inserted faults.
The Industrial Controls Training System is divided into four levels, each level being further divided into specific topics that deal with various aspects of industrial controls equipment operation. The Basic Controls system, Model 8036-1, provides the student with a complete basic training in motor controls. The Programmable Logic Controller system, Model 8036-2, introduces the use of PLCs to control the motor operation. The Motor Drives system, Model 8036-3, introduces the use of the DC and AC drives. The Sensors system, Model 8036-4, introduces photoelectric and proximity switches.
The 8036 Series control devices and motors are of standard industrial quality, preset to fit the 0.2 kW machines in the Lab-Volt Electromechanical Training System. Device designations can be added to each module with magnetic labels. Each module is equipped with up to four faults that can be inserted by the instructor using switches hidden behind the faceplate. Typical faults include open coils and contacts, dirty contacts, shorted connection, and crossed wires.
