Mechatronics Troubleshooting Learning System-Siemens S7-1500: 87-FTSS715

Amatrol’s Mechatronics Troubleshooting Learning System – Siemens S7-1500 (87-FTSS715) – covers mechatronics troubleshooting training stations and components by utilizing Amatrol’s world-class electronic fault troubleshooting software, FaultPro. Downtime caused by equipment problems can cost thousands of dollars per minute. For this reason, industrial maintenance technicians and operators must thoroughly understand the machines and components in his or her area and be able to act quickly as failures arise.

The Mechatronics troubleshooting training system’s major components include a fault controller that provides up to 37 faults depending on which Mechatronics station is being used and Amatrol’s FaultPro USB 4.0 Mechatronics software with on-line student troubleshooting and record keeping.

Includes: (1) Fault Insertion System and Software; (1) Cable Set; (1) M33739 Student Curriculum-Interactive PC-Based Multimedia; (1) C33739 Instructor's Guide; (1) K33739 Instructor's Resource Print CD; (1) S33739 Supplemental Disk;(1) D33739 Installation Guide; (1) H33739 Student Reference Guide.

Hands-On Mechatronics Troubleshooting Training for Real-World Skill-Building

The 87-FTSS715 includes a fault controller, FaultPro 4.0 software, and cable set. Used in conjunction with the an 87-FTSS715, at least one 87-MS mechatronics station, programming software, and a computer, learners will use these components to practice real-world skills like testing a discrete input module, using a six-step sequence to troubleshoot a mechatronics station, and troubleshooting handshaking and permissive faults.

Amatrol’s FaultPro: The Industry’s Only Electronic Troubleshooting System

The 87-FTSS715 utilizes Amatrol’s FaultPro software, which allows instructors to instantly set and tailor faults to test a learner’s weaknesses and turn them into strengths. The skills developed by this software will allow learners to solve real-world technical problems once they’re in the field. The 87-FTSS715 allows training on 29 to 37 faults depending on what mechatronics stations it’s used with.

Comprehensive Mechatronics Interactive Multimedia Curriculum that’s Second-to-None

Amatrol’s Mechatronics course curriculum offering is an impressive presentation of comprehensive theoretical knowledge. This curriculum begins with an introduction to mechatronics and mechatronics safety and quickly builds on concepts like station operation, component adjustment, module sequencing, and station sequencing. Examples of topics from the curriculum include: manually overriding an electro-pneumatic valves; sequencing the operation of a 2-axis pick and place manipulator; adjusting a fiber optic sensor; sequencing the operation of a parts queueing module; operating a gravity feeder with escapement; adjusting motor starter overloads; and much more! This learning system’s curriculum is presented in a stunning interactive multimedia format that features 3D animations, graphics, text with audio voice-overs, and much more!

Mechatronics | Automation Systems

Modern industry utilizes complex production systems to produce high-quality, economical products for an ever demanding world. Amatrol’s Mechatronics training programs teach systems-level thinking and industrial automation skill-building that prepares learners to for mechatronics operation, hands-on PLC programming, and industrial maintenance and problem solving for real-world manufacturing environments. With the proliferation of automation technology, mechatronics is one of the fastest growing technical education programs in the world. Many technologies are integrated to make these sophisticated production systems including mechanical, electrical, electronics, and software. In order to meet this vital industry demand, Amatrol has developed both a large scale mechatronics line and a portable, tabletop mechatronics training system, each with highly interactive eLearning mechatronics courses. Each of these systems is comprised of individual stations that can be purchased separately when mechatronics training is necessary but budgets must be observed or all together to form a total learning experience. This training experience can apply to various careers such as mechatronics engineer / technician, automation engineer / technician, and systems engineer / technician.
