Industrial Controls Training Systems



The Industrial Controls Training Systems are designed to teach the theory and techniques of electric motor controllers. They allow students to select and mount control devices to form typical control circuits, and to troubleshoot them once a fault is inserted. The systems offer unique controls training possibilities, are modular, and include insertable faults.

The Industrial Controls Training Systems comprise four basic systems, each covering a particular topic that deals with various aspects of industrial controls equipment operation. The following systems are available:

- Basic Controls, Model 8036-1, provides students with a complete basic training in motor controls.

- Programmable Logic Controller, Model 8036-2, introduces students to PLCs for motor operation control.

- Motor Drives, Model 8036-3, introduces students to dc and ac drives.

- Sensors, Model 8036-4, introduces students to photoelectric and proximity switches.

The control devices and motors in the 8036 Series are of standard industrial quality, and can be used conjointly with the 0.2 kW machines in the 0.2 kW Eletromechnical Training Systems, Models 8001 and 8006. 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.

The modules in the 8036 Series are designed to be mounted in the Industrial Controls Mobile Workstation, Model 3103-4 (this model is double-sided and can accommodate two student groups simultaneously), the Industrial Controls Tabletop Workstation, the Industrial Controls Single-Rail Workstation, or the Industrial Controls Double-Rail Workstation.

The modules of the Industrial Controls Training Systems can be interconnected with those of other training systems for interdisciplinary training applications. Connections are made using flexible PVC leads terminated with 4 mm safety plugs. These leads allow safe connection of components since the live parts of their plugs are concealed and insulated, preventing accidental contact. The leads are provided in three different lengths, each identified by a distinctive color. For safety, smaller connection leads are also provided for the low-voltage applications running at 24 V dc. This prevents high-voltage and low-voltage leads from being mixed accidentally.

Safety bars are attached to each rail of the industrial controls workstations. These bars can be used to prevent students from removing modules during laboratory exercises. Padlocks are provided to lock the safety bars in place once all modules are inserted in the workstation.
