About the Simulations back to top

Troubleshooting Control Circuits V4 includes two unique control circuit simulations: a practice circuit simulation and a highly realistic electric door lock circuit simulation environment.

Practice Circuit Simulation

The first circuit simulation consists of a transformer, a fuse, several relays, switches, and lights. With this simulation you will be coached step by step through the troubleshooting process on two guided faults and then be given the opportunity to solve six different exercise faults.
  • Learn how to apply Simutech's Systematic Troubleshooting Approach to control circuits.
  • Explore how the components work and learn techniques for finding circuit defects.

Customer Feedback
...this is one of the best tools I've ever seen. It's an extremely realistic way to learn and refine your troubleshooting skills without the expense, mistakes, and pressure from the employer.
Programs like yours definitely help sharpen my skills in a discipline that I feel is as much art as it is science. I thank you for the obvious effort you've put into these programs.
A great way to hone my troubleshooting skills. Some people will get up in the morning and have a coffee and play a game of solitaire on the computer. Myself, even though I have finished all three programs, I still try to solve one or two in the morning with my coffee.
