Electrical Controls Training System Components
LearnLab makes Electrical Controls Training fun and easy! All the electrical controls components you see here are found everywhere in modern manufacturing and industrial facilities. This Vocational Training System teaches students 98% of what they need to know to enter the work force as an industrial automation computer programmer.
1. Training System Platform
2. Connection Strip or Terminal Strip The curriculum teaches a student how to correctly wire a control circuit using the same barrier strips found in most industrial machinery . This aids in teaching proper construction as well as troubleshooting methods.
3. Limit Switches Limit switches are found in many, many places in industry from doors, protective guards, positioning, end-of-travel, as well as many other applications. Student will learn to wire and troubleshoot these common industrial devices.
4. Stop Start Station By far these industrial electrical switches are a staple in machines and process controls. The curriculum teaches all about these common devices by using real world scenarios to challenge the students throughout the training.
5. Transducer Real world devices such as signaling and sound generators are used throughout industry. This real sound transducer adds the sound dimension to the training circuits that call be both fun and educational at the same time.
6. Selector Switch Selector switches are another very common control panel device that is used in many ways in common machine and process controls. Students will learn to understand, connect and troubleshoot this switch in this real world training.
7. Timer Controller This highly effective multi-purpose timer allows the student to implement time on, time off, one, shot and other types of time related functions. These are very common in machine and system controls. Students will learn to connect, understand, configure, and troubleshoot these devices.
8. General Purpose Contactor Contactors are also largely used in many circuits such as heater control, lighting control as well as many others. Student here learn to connect, operate, and troubleshoot these contactors.
9. Ice Cube Relays Controls Relays Controls relays, often called “Ice Cube” relays due to their appearance similar to an actual ice cube are a staple in most machine controls systems. Our curriculum teaches the types, functions, and operation of these common devices, along with the common failures, and the easy methods to troubleshoot them.
10. Motor Starters The training system boasted both the IEC and NEMA style motor starters. Student will learn to identify and understand the differences between these devices, and why they are required to be used by the National Electrical Code in industry. Students learn the components, connections, failures, and how each of these operate and why.
11. Indicator Lamps While simple in construction, students will learn the importance of these devices by wiring them into common circuits, seeing them operate and troubleshooting the circuits based on their functions.
12. Power Supply The on-board power supply converts the 120VAC power to a manageable and safe voltage to allow the students to wire, troubleshoot, and even short circuit the control circuits with out dangerous risks. The panel operates below the NFPA 50 volt level to dispel the need to wear PPE when training.
