The Applied Electrical Control Learning System (90-EC1-A) teaches learners how to interpret, design, and operate relay control circuits using ladder diagrams. Electrical control is vital in the operation of electric and fluid power actuators and also forms the fundamental building block of automation systems like programmable logic controllers (PLCs), which are programmed using the electrical control schematic method, the ladder diagram.
AC/DC Electrical Learning System
The model T7017A AC/DC Electrical Learning System teaches fundamentals of AC and DC electrical systems used for power and control in industrial, commercial, agricultural, and residential applications. Students learn industry-relevant skills including how to operate, install, design, and troubleshoot basic AC and DC electrical circuits for various applications.
The model T7017A includes a bench top-mount workstation, AC power supply, DC power supply, electrical components set, lead set, hand-held multimeter, circuit tester, built-in instrumentation console, electrical circuit simulation software, student learning materials for both theory and lab, and teacher’s assessment guide. This system uses industrial quality components to help students become better prepared for what they will encounter on the job.
Industrial Size Components – The T7017A features industrial size electrical power and control components, typical of what students will find in the field. This experience better prepares students to recognize industrial component styles and troubleshoot them effectively. Safety is emphasized throughout. Safety devices include a 24-volt power or less, grounding and guards.
Integrated Workstation – The T7017A workstation uses a heavy-duty welded steel frame with built-in power supply, instrumentation, component mounting surface, and component storage panel. Components are mounted directly on individual panels that easily attach to the mounting surface with no special tools. Each component’s leads are attached to quick-turn terminal posts, allowing students to use leads to quickly interconnect components for a variety of circuit applications.
Effective Component Inventory – Components are stored on a vertical storage panel with silk-screened and labeled outlines so components can easily be identified and inventoried. This makes setup quicker so students can do more in less time. Components also do not get lost as easily.
Optional Virtual Trainer VT-T7017A – Amatrol’s virtual trainers replicate hands-on equipment in such great detail that students will feel like they are using the actual equipment. Students will perform essentially the same tasks using virtual trainers that they would perform using equipment hardware. Transition from theory to hands-on is a seamless process. These skills enable students to work effectively in business settings.
Multimedia Curriculum Available
Amatrol’s unmatched multimedia utilizes text, audio, and stunning 3D animations that engage learners in both theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills. This thorough, exceptionally detailed curriculum is built to begin with the basics and steadily advance to more complex concepts and skills. Through partnerships with key industry leaders and leading edge educators, Amatrol developed the right balance of knowledge and applied skills needed to train learners to work in their chosen field.
Student Reference Guide
A sample copy of this course’s Student Reference Guide is included with the learning system. Sourced from the multimedia curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfect-bound book. If you would like to inquire about purchasing additional Student Reference Guides for your program, contact your local Amatrol Representative for more information.

AC/DC Electrical Systems - Multimedia (MB227)
AC/DC Electrical course teaches fundamentals of AC/DC electrical systems used for power and control in industrial, commercial, agricultural, and residential applications using Amatrol’s virtual training technology. Students learn industry-relevant skills included in subject areas such as Basic Electrical Circuits, Electrical measurement, Circuit Analysis, Inductance and Capacitance, Combination Circuits, and Transformers.
Amatrol’s extensive, thorough multimedia covers electrical basics such as AC/DC electrical systems. Interactive screens paired with instructive graphics teach AC/DC electrical system topics from basic electrical circuits to combination circuits. With the optional hardware, learners can then apply this theoretical knowledge to immediate hands-on skills. For example, learners study the function and operation of voltage dividers and then manually design their own voltage divider network for applied learning. This combination of theory and practice ingrains concepts in a learner’s mind and makes more advanced topics easier to comprehend. (References T7017A)
