Motor controllers and drives

Motor controllers and drives

Electric motors used to drive industrial machines must be started, stopped and protected in various ways depending on the application and the motor used, and their speed must also be controlled. Our learning systems for motor controllers and drives offer unique training in these technologies.

Training solutions that are included:


Learning systems for industrial controllers

  • Designed for teaching the theory and methods of electric motor control
  • Provides students with the opportunity to select and assemble control units for creating typical control circuits as well as to carry out troubleshooting after a malfunction has been introduced
  • Four basic systems: basic controllers, programmable logic controllers, motor drives and sensors
  • Modular systems offer unique training options for the controller and include applicable malfunctions.
