Learning System: 990-PC1F

Amatrol’s Portable Process Control Troubleshooting Learning System – Level & Flow (990-PC1F) provides a skill-rich, portable troubleshooting training system for two of the most common types of process control systems, flow and liquid level. The system features eLearning curriculum and hands-on training for subjects like process control equipment safety, loop controllers, level measurement and control, control loop performance, and more.

The 990-PC1F provides vital training experience for students and professionals that will perform operation, safety, and troubleshooting on process control systems used in real-world industrial areas, including power generation, petrochemicals, food processing and manufacturing. To teach real-world skills, the trianing system features industry-standard valves, switches, and gauges all within a portable basic process control learning system that can be placed on a conference room table, shop floor desk, or practically anywhere when training space is limited.

The portable level and flow process control troubleshooting training system features two portable consoles with a variety of real industrial components, including a PID controller, operator controls, process meter, flow transmitter, water tanks, gauges, and Amatrol's exclusive FaultPro electronic fault insertion software. These industrial components will be used to study troubleshooting topics for process control safety, interpreting instrument tags, valve and pump symbols, loop controllers, proportional control valves, display scaling, closed loop liquid level control, proportional control, flow sensors, and open-loop tuning.

Practice Hands-On Process Control Troubleshooting Skills with a Compact, Portable Training System

The 990-PC1F includes portable consoles, liquid tanks, a centrifugal pump, a piping network with valves, and a PLC interface. Learners will practice hands-on skills with these components to gain an understanding of how process control equipment works. Skills highlighted by this system include connecting and operating loop controllers and diaphragm actuator proportional valves; using a multimeter to test pressure sensor operation; connecting and operating alarms on a controller; controlling a process using PI control; measuring flow using a paddlewheel flow sensor; and tuning a control loop using the process reaction curve method. All of this capability is contained within a durable ABS plastic case that features wheels and a handle to create a mobile training platform that’s easy to store and transport. The cover is quickly removed to enable the case to sit firmly upright on a table surface for any learner to use anywhere training needs to occur.

Fault-Pro: A World-Class Troubleshooting Teaching Tool

The 990-PC1F features Amatrol's exclusive FaultPro electronic fault insertion system, which allows users to insert 30+ faults into the system for troubleshooting. During the learning process, FaultPro allows learners to insert faults in the system as they progress through the step-by-step procedures learning industrial troubleshooting methods. Then, FaultPro can be set to randomly select and insert a fault to test a learner’s troubleshooting abilities and prepare them to solve real-world technical problems once they’re in the field.

In-Depth Level and Flow Process Control Curriculum

Amatrol's Portable Level and Flow Process 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 level and flow process control topics covered include: how an instrument tag identifies the function of a device, how to perform a display and key test on the Honeywell UDC 3500 controller, how to calibrate an I/P converter, how to program a Honeywell UDI 1700 process meter to perform on/off control, how to convert between velocity and volumetric flow rate units, and how to tune a loop using the process reaction curve open-loop method.

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.
