Troubleshooting Industrial Controls Features
Skill testing faults
“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.
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 simulation features a fluid processing system with
an electro-mechanical control circuit and a three-phase power supply:
- Pump, agitator, and heaters
- Motors and transformers
- Contactors and overloads
- Temperature, float and selector switches
- Relays, timers and pushbuttons
- Solenoid valves, fuses, indicators
- Wiring, terminal blocks and wire connectors
Modeled on real equipment, the behavior of the system and the components are accurate under normal and faulty conditions.
- Challenges all expertise levels with multiple degrees of fault difficulty in each simulation
- Real-time feedback on safe practices and testing methods to improve performance
- Step-by-step guides help users apply new problem-solving techniques to solve faults
- Printable resources including circuit diagrams, schematics, worksheets, and system operation manual
- Extra and Genius Faults available for skill maintenance
- Electrical and maintenance staff responsible for maintaining and troubleshooting complex, electro-mechanical controls in fluid processing systems
- Learning skills that are directly transferable to the workplace
- Worldwide use: simulations on resources provided for NEMA and IEC electrical standards
