Model Name: Variable Frequency AC Drive Learning System

Model Number: 85-MT5C

Learning Topics

The Variable Frequency AC Drive Learning System (85-MT5-C) adds to Amatrol’s Motor Control (85-MT5) to teach hands-on skills and industrial applications where variable frequency drives (VFDs) are used to vary the speed of an otherwise fixed speed AC motor. This VFD training course will cover this vital industrial component and its many applications including fans, pumps, conveyors, mixers, grinders, hoists, and many more. Learners will work through Amatrol’s unmatched curriculum and study about the operation, installation, design, performance analysis, and troubleshooting of variable frequency drives. Learners then practice hands-on skills like programming and operating a variable frequency AC drive to ramp a motor up to its rated speed and decelerate to a stop.

This industrial training system features heavy-duty, real-world components a Powerflex4 variable frequency drive, multi-turn potentiometer for speed control, and selector switches for general drive control, performing basic stop/start, ramping, and dynamic braking. These real-world components help to prepare learners for situations that they will encounter on the job.

Industry Standard Components for Hands-On Practice

This VFD training course includes a variable frequency AC drive, dual fuse block, emergency stop pushbutton with key-lock, multi-turn potentiometer for speed control, and three selector switches for general drive control, performing basic stop/start, ramping, and dynamic braking. These are the same components that learners will find in real-world environments so the hands-on skills they’ll practice on this learning system can be applied to actual situations that they may encounter at a worksite.

Unmatched Curriculum Provides Dependable Learning Outcomes

Variable Frequency AC Drives Multimedia Courseware (M17411)

This training course’s curriculum is unmatched in the industry for depth and breadth of content centered on variable frequency AC drives. Learners will study major topics such as two- and three-wire motor control, jogging control, basic speed control, advanced speed control, ramping, special acceleration methods, and braking. They can then apply this theoretical knowledge to hands on skills like programming and operating a variable frequency AC drive to drive a motor above its base speed and programming and operating a two-wire control circuit using a variable frequency drive.

This VFD system curriculum is presented in an  interactive multimedia format. Amatrol’s multimedia utilizes text, audio, and stunning 3D animations that engage learners in both theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills.

Expand Learners’ Fault Troubleshooting Experience

Amatrol’s industrial motor control training system includes five faults for use with FaultPro. Focused on the variable frequency AC drive, learners will practice hands-on fault detection and clearing through skills like troubleshooting the parameter settings of a variable frequency AC drive and manually clearing a fault on a variable frequency drive.

Student Reference Guide

A sample copy of the Variable Frequency AC Drive Student Reference Guide is also included with the system for your evaluation. Sourced from the system’s multimedia curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfect-bound book. Student Reference Guides supplement this course by providing a condensed, inexpensive reference tool that learners will find invaluable once they finish their training making it the perfect course takeaway.
