VFD & PLC Wiring Training System | Hands-On Electrical Wiring Skills

Learning System: 85-MT6BA

Amatrol’s VFD/PLC Wiring Learning System (85-MT6BA) is an invaluable industrial wiring technician training system for careers like electricians and industrial maintenance technicians that wire control panels and operator panels on manufacturing machines. This learning system can also be used to form a strong foundation toward attaining numerous industrial maintenance technician certifications.

The VFD/PLC wiring training system includes real-world components, such as a variable frequency drive (VFD), a programmable logic controller (PLC), a 3-phase motor, pushbuttons, switches, valves, and a 24VDC power supply all mounted on a mobile workstation. Learners will use these components to study areas like electrical control system wiring, pneumatic control circuit wiring, conductors, disconnects, and overcurrent protection. This combination of industrial components and comprehensive curriculum will reinforce electrical wiring concepts and skills and build up a learner’s confidence and competence.

Hands-On Electrical Wiring Skills on a Mobile Workstation

Amatrol's VFD/PLC wiring training system includes heavy-duty industrial components such as a 3-phase, 1/3 HP motor; disconnect switch; side rotary limit switch; manual shut off valve; emergency stop button; push-to-test buttons; and much more all on a mobile workstation! These industrial components can be used to practice an array of hands-on skills like installing a terminal block in an electrical panel; splice motor leads using ring lug connectors; bundle wires in an electrical panel; manually operate an electro-pneumatic valve; and select circuit protection for an application. These real-world industrial wiring components will allow learners to gain confidence and competence in working with equipment they’ll actually see on the job.

Comprehensive Wiring Skills Build a Foundation Toward Industrial Certification

The VFD/PLC wiring training system’s curriculum provides a comprehensive lesson on the function, operation, installation, and construction of electrical wiring and wiring components, as well as forms a strong foundation toward pursuing certifications. This course specifically covers topics such as learning the function of electrical prints, how to select a terminal block for an application, methods used to identify wires that are run between panels, methods to connect wires to terminal screws, the common line and component symbols used in pneumatic schematic diagrams, and common types of disconnects. 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!

Interactive VFD/PLC Wiring eLearning Curriculum

Amatrol's VFD/PLC wiring 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 VFD/PLC wiring topics covered include: PLC and VFD installation; wiring a PLC in an electrical enclosure; VFD motor control; and wiring a VFD and a PLC in an electrical enclosure. Within these topics, learners will study objectives like installing a PLC into an electrical enclosure; wiring and operating a forward/reverse motor control system that uses PLC discrete I/O; and wiring and operating a VFD/PLC motor control system that uses MODBUS communications.

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.
