Portable Electronic Sensor Training | Proximity, Magnetic, & Photoelectric Sensors

Learning System: 990-SN1

Amatrol’s Portable Electronic Sensor Training System (990-SN1) teaches the operation of electronic, non-contact sensors and their applications in industry, such as sensing movement, detecting metal from non-metal, and determining speed. Packaged in a convenient, portable ABS plastic case, this system is perfect for use in small spaces or multiple locations.

The portable electronic sensors training system includes a variety of electronic sensors, including capacitive proximity, inductive proximity, magnetic reed, hall-effect, and photoelectric sensors. These sensors can be used with a large array of provided test materials to learn how each sensor completes industrial tasks in real-world environments. Combined with Amatrol’s world-class multimedia curriculum, this innovative product provides learners with a thorough understanding of electronic sensor applications.

Learning Topics

Real-World Equipment in a Convenient, Portable Case

Electronic sensors are used in industrial applications for feedback to systems like electrical relay controls and programmable logic controllers. Learners will practice real-world skills on industrial-grade components packaged in a convenient, portable case. For example, the portable electronic sensors training system allows learners to build relay circuits that separate metallic and non-metallic materials, design controls for a stamping machine, and use a sensor as a safety interlock.

Learn Hands-On Electronic Sensor Skills

In addition to in-depth theoretical knowledge of electronic sensors, learners will also gain valuable hands-on skills with five different electronic sensors. For example, learners will study a magnetic reed sensor to understand its operation and applications, such as sensing the position of a pneumatic cylinder. Learners will also measure and analyze magnetic reed sensor performance.

Engaging, Highly-Interactive Multimedia

Amatrol’s curriculum features a highly-interactive, multimedia format that includes stunning 3D graphics and videos, voiceovers of all text, and interactive quizzes and exercises designed to appeal to learners with different learning styles. The portable electronic sensors training system curriculum teaches learners about the components and applications of five different types of electronic sensors, including their operation and factors affecting their performance.
