Motor Control Fundamentals Training System


DAC #424 Motor Control Trainer

 DAC #425 Solid State Motor Starter Trainer

This modular system of motor control-related training devices allows for training in the operational principles, wiring, fault troubleshooting, and application of modern industrial motor controls.

Each motor control module includes a welded aluminum baseplate, steel controller support structure, t-slotted motor mounting rails and a steel control box.

All wiring is accomplished through banana jack connections on the control box front panel face, rather than directly between individual components.

The model #419 Motor Load Device, and the model #428 Piloting Switch Module can be integrated with all units through common motor centerlines and patch cord connections. Additionally, all products mount on the DAC #905 Electromechanical Bench and can easily be integrated with larger electro-mechanical systems.

This series of products, together, creates a complete flexible laboratory in common industrial motor control arrangements, useful within industrial training programs and within the educational setting.
