“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.”

Learn and practice new troubleshooting methods

Using Simutech’s 5-Step Troubleshooting Approach, master effective testing methods and techniques for safely troubleshooting malfunctions in a typical industrial control system.

This system simulation gives you the chance to learn and practice new methods as you troubleshoot large industrial processes containing electro-mechanical controls. Troubleshoot complex malfunctions on this simulation of a process for processing fluids. The system uses 480 volts AC three-phase and contains a variety of industrial components such as pumps, agitators, heaters, temperature and float switches, relays, and timers.

The simulations

This is a realistic simulation of an industrial process for mixing and processing liquids. The simulated system uses 480 volts AC 3 phase for the power portion, consisting of:

  • Pump, agitator, and heaters
  • Motors and transformers
  • Contactors and overloads

The control portion of the system, find:

  • Temperature, float and selector switches
  • Relays, timers and pushbuttons
  • Solenoid valves, fuses, indicators
  • Wiring, terminal blocks and wire connectors

This simulation contains over 50 circuit malfunctions to solve a variety of faults, such as:

  • Opens or shorts in components or wiring
  • Defects in component mechanisms
  • Overloaded and defective three-phase motors and protective equipment
  • Opens and shorts in three-phase circuits,
  • Defective mechanical components
