Pneumatic System Troubleshooting | Maintenance Technician Training

Product Number: 950-PT1

Amatrol’s Pneumatic Troubleshooting Learning System (950-PT1) teaches pneumatic troubleshooting skills like no other product on the market today. A hands-on learning station models a real-world electro-pneumatic machine featuring FaultPro, Amatrol’s exclusive computer-based fault insertion system. FaultPro allows 30 faults to be inserted into the system, teaching learners essential troubleshooting skills valuable throughout industry.

The pneumatic troubleshooting training system is the first product to offer a realistic troubleshooting experience for learners, because faults can be inserted throughout the system, including the pneumatic, mechanical, and electrical components. The system acts like a real machine with realistic loads and pressures, as well as real-world pneumatic components. The system can also be used to teach advanced pneumatics, system tuning, installation, and maintenance.

Practice Real-World Pneumatic Troubleshooting, Maintenance, and Installation Skills

The pneumatic troubleshooting training system teaches pneumatic troubleshooting effectively because it operates under actual load conditions. Each application exposes learners to a different type of load, including inertial, friction, compression, and static loads. The system gives learners experience with situations they will actually encounter on the job. Each of the major circuit panels replicates a common application. The PLC control offers a variety of selectable programs to change sequences, presenting learners with different troubleshooting scenarios.

In-Depth Pneumatic Troubleshooting Curriculum

The pneumatic troubleshooting trainer includes an in-depth, comprehensive curriculum that provides a strong foundation in pneumatic troubleshooting, including air preparation, pneumatic cylinders, motor and rotary actuators, and directional control and flow control valves. Learners will study topics, such as in-circuit pneumatic component testing, air-over-oil system operation, rotary actuator operation, quick exhaust valves, vacuum switch operation, and troubleshooting machine performance faults. The curriculum is also available in a convenient eBook format with enhanced features like keyword searches and zoom controls that enable users to quickly locate and view information.

Realistic Pneumatic Troubleshooting with FaultPro

The pneumatic troubleshooting training system features FaultPro, Amatrol’s exclusive computer-based fault insertion software. FaultPro automatically inserts faults and tracks learners’ troubleshooting efforts. Up to 30 faults can be inserted into the electrical system, loads, and pneumatic system, creating realistic troubleshooting experiences for users. FaultPro’s computer-based faults automatically track progress, enabling learners to gain troubleshooting skills in a self-paced environment that ensures that faults are inserted safely, protecting both learners and equipment.

Virtual Trainer for Online Pneumatic Skill-Building

The Basic Hydraulic Training System also features a virtual multimedia trainer! Amatrol’s virtual trainers replicate hands-on equipment in such great detail that learners will feel like they are using the actual equipment. Learners will perform essentially the same tasks using virtual trainers that they would perform using equipment hardware. Transition from theory to hands-on is a seamless process. 

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.
