MagTran® Training System



The MagTran® Training System is designed to teach magnetic circuit principles and the application of these principles to basic transformers. It is suitable for a broad range of teaching programs – from vocational schools to universities.

It consists of a set of laminated iron bars, a vise-type non-magnetic base that holds the bars in place, coils, and other related components that can be assembled in many ways. Correlated courseware contains an extensive set of laboratory experiments that illustrate basic principles of magnetism and electromagnetic induction.
