- Base System: Electric Motor Control (85-MT5)
- Computer (see Computer Requirements)
- Allows training in 3-phase Wye-Delta power distribution, as well as reduced voltage starting.
- Learning System Available with Regular Banana Leads (85-MT5B) or Sheathed Banana Leads (85-MT5BSL)
Amatrol’s Reduced Voltage Starting Learning System (85-MT5B) adds to the Electric Motor Control Learning System (85-MT5) to teach methods of starting electric motors under reduced voltage, 3-phase power distribution using Delta and Wye transformer wiring configurations, and troubleshooting. Reduced voltage starting is ideal for applications where full motor torque could tear or damage a product, such as paper or delicate fabric. Learners will study Wye-Delta power distribution, types of voltage circuits, and the operation of an autotransformer reduced voltage starter.
Reduced voltage starting includes a Dual Transformer Station, featuring two control transformers, and a Power Resistor Station, featuring three 25-ohm, 100-watt resistors. This industrial motor control training system uses industrial-quality components that stand up to frequent use and enables learners to practice with real-world components that they will encounter on the job.
