Learning System: 990-ACDC1

Amatrol’s Portable AC/DC Electrical Learning System (990-ACDC1) teaches the fundamentals of AC and DC electrical systems used for power and control in industrial, commercial, agricultural, and residential applications. The 990-ACDC1 offers industry-relevant skills including how to operate, install, design, and troubleshoot basic AC and DC electrical circuits for various applications.

This portable AC/DC electrical learning system brings customers flexibility and convenience when there’s a need to use a trainer in multiple locations or where space is too small for a full-size trainer. Set within a durable ABS plastic case, the 990-ACDC1 features wheels and a handle to create a completely mobile learning system. This highly efficient learning system also includes a lock for safety and a storage pouch in the inside cover for loose components, such as banana leads. The system’s front cover is easily removed, enabling the case to sit upright on a flat surface.

The 990-ACDC1 includes a variety of switches and other components so learners can build different circuits, which will help them to recognize industrial component styles and learn how to troubleshoot them effectively. Combined with Amatrol’s world-class curriculum, this innovative product can provide learners with a thorough understanding of electrical power.

Learn about AC/DC Electricity Nearly Anywhere

With only desk space for the 990-ACDC1 and a computer, anyone can attain a full array of AC/DC electrical training and learn about the fundamentals of this vital area. Electricity is used worldwide for innumerable applications and forms the base for areas such as electrical motor control, electro-fluidpower, and programmable controllers, so a strong understanding of this subject is necessary for many professionals. In this learning system, electrical topics covered include concepts like Ohm’s Law and Kichhoff’s Voltage Law and real-world components including switches, solenoids, and digital multimeters. Learners can then use this in-depth knowledge about electricity to complete skills such as operating a circuit using a circuit breaker, connect and operate a relay in a circuit, and connect and operate a basic lighting circuit.

Apply Foundational Electrical Knowledge to Real World Applications

The 990-ACDC1's curriculum begins with the basics of electricity and builds to show learners how electricity is utilized in residential applications, as well as in industrial components and areas such as programmable controllers, electrical motor control, and electro-fluid power. Learners will study topics such as how to use a voltmeter to measure voltage, stating a formula for calculating total parallel resistance, the functions of four electromagnetic devices, how switches and used in combination circuits, and how to troubleshoot a transformer. This electrical training course is presented in an interactive multimedia format, which features stunning 3D graphics and video, audio voiceovers of all of the text, and interactive quizzes and activities.

Interactive Basic Electrical eLearning Curriculum

Amatrol's portable basic electrical training system features interactive eLearning curriculum that integrates various types of learning methods to create an engaging, effective learning experience. Amatrol’s multimedia eLearning curriculum includes text with voiceovers, videos, 3D animations, pictures, and interactive activities, quizzes, and self-reviews. Specific basic electrical topics covered include: basic electrical circuits, electrical measurements, circuit analysis, inductance and capacitance, combination circuits, and transformers. Within these topics, learners will study objectives like connecting and operating a circuit using three types of manual switches; using a digital multimeter to measure voltage drops in series and parallel circuits; and using Ohm's Law to calculate voltage, current, and resistance in a series circuit.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.

This course includes a virtual simulator!

Amatrol's portable basic electrical eLearning curriculum also features a virtual simulator that allows learners to practice hands-on skills even when they don't have access to the physical trainer. Virtual simulators replicate hands-on equipment in such great detail that learners will feel like they are using the actual equipment. Learners perform essentially the same industry-based tasks using the virtual equipment that they would perform using equipment hardware. Virtual simulators offer instructors and learners great flexibility when learning remotely or when a physical trainer must be shared by multiple learners.
