Electronic Sensors Training | Proximity Sensor, Reed Sensor

Learning System: 85-SN1

Amatrol’s Electronic Sensors Learning System (85-SN1) is a stand-alone training system that teaches the operation of electronic non-contact sensors and their applications in industry, such as sensing movement, detecting metal versus non-metal, and determining speed. This lightweight, portable industrial sensors training system offers depth and breadth of knowledge and skill-building that far exceeds its physical size.

The sensors training system includes the following components: capacitive proximity sensor, inductive proximity sensor, magnetic reed sensor, and hall-effect sensor. These sensors are used with a variety of test materials to show how each sensor completes industrial tasks. This system requires one of the following Amatrol Learning Systems: Electro-Fluid Power (85-EF), Electro-Hydraulics (85-EH), or Electro-Pneumatics (85-EP). Combined with Amatrol’s world-class curriculum, this innovative product provides learners with a thorough understanding of electronic sensors and their applications.

Electronic Sensors Training in a Flexible System

Electronic sensors are used in industrial applications to provide feedback to systems like electrical relay controls and programmable logic controllers. Learners practice skills on industrial-grade components to gain practice and familiarize themselves with what that they’ll find on the job. As examples, the sensors training system allows learners to build relay circuits that separate non-metallic and metallic materials, design controls for a stamping machine, and use a sensor as a safety interlock.

World-Class Electronic Sensors Training Curriculum

Electronic Sensors Training Course (MB837)

Amatrol offers extensive, thorough curriculum covering electronic sensor advantages, functions, and operation. The sensor training curriculum covers five different electronic sensors and describes the characteristics that affect each sensor’s performance. As an example, learners will study a Hall-Effect sensor through topics like understanding what the Hall-Effect is and how the sensors are utilized on conveyor belts and in computer keyboards. Learners will then test a Hall-Effect sensor’s performance by sensing distance, hysteresis, and the ability to sense through different materials using supplied sensor targets.

Amatrol’s peerless interactive multimedia curriculum utilizes text with voiceovers, pictures, videos, stunning 3D animations, and interactive quizzes and reviews that engage learners in theoretical knowledge and concepts. This thorough, detailed curriculum begins with the basics and advances to complex concepts. Through partnerships with key industry leaders and leading educators, Amatrol developed the right balance of knowledge to train learners to work in their chosen field.
