TROUBLESHOOTING CONTROL CIRCUITS

Simulation

Troubleshooting Control Circuits is the second in our series of core skills simulations, following the Troubleshooting Electrical Circuits simulation. Through safe, detailed simulations, your maintenance team will be able to experiment and practice solving faults with control circuit troubleshooting, building the skills to prevent excessive production downtime.

Some common issues explored in this control circuit training are faults with relays, pushbuttons, a control transformer, a solenoid lock, a proximity switch, and circuit protection. The skills covered in this simulation will be invaluable to maintenance workers in industrial settings such as manufacturing production lines, petrochemical facilities, the utilities and mining sectors, and more.

Activities Included

Prepare for This Simulation

Workers will get the foundation to succeed in this simulation through the completion of the related learning lab.

Multimeter Workout

Building on the skills from the last simulation, workers will learn to use multimeters to take voltage, and resistance on a control circuit.

Replace Defective Components

Labor time is part of repair costs. By knowing how to quickly determining what components are defective, your maintenance team can save you even more money.

Work With Wires

Understanding wiring is key to diagnosing control circuit faults. This simulation will continue to reinforce how to disconnect, trace, and replace faulty wires in an electrical door lock control circuit.

Benefits

Adaptive learning

Simulations assess the user’s skill levels and customize the program, so the user is progressively challenged.

Immediate and relevant feedback

Relevant feedback and individual scoring will let your professionals know where they stand, what they’ve mastered, and what they still need to work on, customizing the overall learning experience and making it more efficient.

Gaming interface

Many of the features that make gaming, so appealing are built into Simutech’s simulations, such as scoring, instant feedback, and progressive levels of difficulty.

Realistic situations

Employees gain hands-on experience solving realistic electrical faults common in industrial machinery, preparing them for real world troubleshooting.

Better learning experience

When the learning environment is enjoyable, the level of engagement is higher, leading to increased knowledge retention.

Quantifiable training

Our simulations generate, track, analyze, and report on valuable training data that can be used to improve your team’s performance, or for employee assessment.

Scoring system

The point system for scoring troubleshooting performance has proven effective in helping learners measure their success and achievements.

Freedom to fail

Failure is an essential part of learning; Simutech’s realistic simulations allow for experimentation and trial and error, giving users the freedom to learn from their mistakes safely.
