Simutech Multimedia’s Training System
Our complete training system includes 6 interactive modules with software simulations ranging from basic electrical circuits to systems with PLC controls. With numerous realistic simulations and over 300 fault-solving challenges, it’s easy for your maintenance professionals to learn and maintain a proven troubleshooting process they can use time and time again.
Your professionals can practice troubleshooting a wide range of problems, including opens, shorts, overloads, single-phasing, and more! Our Admin Dashboard (Course Manager) makes it painless for managers to track staff’s progress along the way to identify areas in need of improvement.
“The software is working out great. It’s worth making sure that our new maintenance people go through the programs and now it’s going to be a mandatory part of their training. I’ve seen the difference in the few people I’ve run through. The more practice I can get these new troubleshooters the better.”Dana M.

Simutech Admin Dashboard (Course Manager)
Manage your professionals’ troubleshooting skills development with the Simutech Admin Dashboard (Course Manager), an integral part of Simutech Multimedia’s Troubleshooting Skills Training System™.
Troubleshooting Electrical Circuits
Your professionals will receive hands-on training on several electrical circuit simulations covering key troubleshooting techniques, and diagnose a variety of problems on the main lighting circuit simulation. These simulations contain common components.
Troubleshooting Control Circuits
With two unique control circuit simulations, including an electric door lock simulation, maintenance professionals will encounter a range of malfunctions found in typical control circuits containing components including relays, transformers, switches, and solenoids.
Troubleshooting Motor Circuits
The motor lab simulations contain components such as three-phase motors, transformers, contactors, overloads, fuses, and limit switches. Professionals will troubleshoot three-phase power circuits and the control portion of these motor circuits.
Troubleshooting PLC Circuits
This module includes several circuit simulations containing generic PLCs with digital inputs and outputs providing the basic functioning of PLCs and their circuits. Over a dozen ladder programs provide a variety of circuit functionality to troubleshoot.
Troubleshooting Industrial Controls
Professionals will troubleshoot malfunctions on this simulation of an industrial process for mixing and processing fluids. The system uses 480 volts AC three-phase and contains components such as pumps, agitators, heaters, temperature & float switches, relays, and timers.
Troubleshooting Industrial Controls 2
The PLC in this simulation has 20 PLC programs available providing a variety of different processes. Professionals will disconnect wires, take meter readings, and connect a virtual laptop to compare readings and settings against schematics.
A systematic approach to troubleshooting
The Simutech Training System is built around our 5-step systematic approach to electrical troubleshooting. Your professionals will first learn the fundamentals of the troubleshooting approach, followed by consistent, hands-on practice and skills maintenance using our simulation software.
Step 1: Observe Behavior
Gather information, use your senses and list observations.
Step 4: Test
Perform tests to positively identify faulty component.
Step 2: Define Problem Area
Eliminate areas of the circuit that are working properly.
Step 5: Repair and Confirm
Replace faulty component and check all features to ensure all faults have been repaired.
Step3: Identify Possible Causes
Include every component in the problem area when identifying all possible causes of the malfunction.
