Learning System: 990-MC1FSL

Amatrol’s Portable Electric Motor Control Troubleshooting Learning System (990-MC1FSL) features standard industry components like a 3-phase AC squirrel cage motor and uses 3-phase AC for power and 24 VDC for control all packed within a space-saving, portable product. These real-world motor control components will prepare learners for work opportunities in industries where electric relay control is used in applications like conveyor control and driving large utility pumps. Teach students how to read and interpret ladder diagrams. The 990-MC1FSL also uses FaultPro, Amatrol’s unique electronic fault insertion, to teach motor control troubleshooting skills, such as control relay, reversing contactor, limit switch, and pushbutton troubleshooting.

The 990-MC1FSL uses industrial components to cover the operation, installation, and applications for electric relay control of AC motors all within this portable, durable learning system that can be set up nearly anywhere. This system also builds knowledge and skills across topics like manual motor control, control ladder logic, motor starters, and automatic input devices. Nowhere else can you find this breadth of training in a portable platform!

Industrial Components Packed Within One Space-Saving System!

The portable electric motor control troubleshooting training system features an extensive range of industry-standard components needed to teach this complex industrial topic, all without sacrificing the curriculum depth and skill-building needed by today’s industries. The 990-MC1FSL features a 3-phase AC squirrel cage motor, the most commonly used in industry, 3-phase AC for power, and 24 VDC for control. Additional industry-standard components include a drum switch, reversing motor contactors, a pressure switch, and a float switch, so that learners can practice skills on mechanisms that they’ll actually see in the field. The 990-MC1FSL also includes lockout/tagout components to teach vital safety steps when working with industrial motors.

Learn Troubleshooting Using the Industry’s Only Electronic Fault Insertion System!

Amatrol’s FaultPro, the industry’s only electronic fault insertion system, allows learners to insert faults in the system as they progress through industrial troubleshooting methods. FaultPro can also randomly select and insert faults to strengthen a learner’s control relay and pushbutton troubleshooting abilities and prepare them for real-world technical problems. The 990-MC1FSL includes over 30 faults including control relay, reversing contactor, limit switch, and pushbutton troubleshooting.

Interactive Electric Motor Control Troubleshooting eLearning Curriculum

Amatrol's portable electric motor control troubleshooting 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 electric motor control topics covered include: manual motor control and overload protection; control transformers; control ladder logic; control relays and motor starters; reversing motor control; automatic input devices; basic timer control; and systems troubleshooting. Within these topics, learners will study objectives like starting and stopping a motor using a manual starter; connecting and operating a basic electrical control circuit that uses a pushbutton switch; troubleshooting a 3-wire control system; and designing a motor reversing circuit that uses a drum switch and a magnetic motor starter.

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 electric motor control troubleshooting 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.
