The 85-MT2E includes a motor connection box to practice hands-on skills such as troubleshooting faults in a DC motor and AC single-phase and three-phase motors, evaluating DC electric motor commutator and brush health, and using a multimeter to test an AC motor start/run capacitor. Amatrol’s learning systems feature real-world, industry-grade components for durability that will stand up to frequent use and to allow learners to gain real-world competencies.
Basic Electrical Machines Learning System – 85-MT2
Amatrol’s Basic Electrical Machines Learning System (85-MT2) teaches electric machines commonly found in industrial, commercial, and residential applications: single phase AC motors, three-phase AC electric motors, and DC electric motors. Learners practice industry-relevant skills including operation, installation, analyzing performance, and selecting electric machines for various applications.
Industrial Standard Machines and Wiring Terminology
The 85-MT2’s electrical machines are off-the-shelf industrial units that provide learners with real world experience in installation and alignment of industrial motors. Each unit is rated at 1/3 Hp, which is the minimum size at which motor performance data models the performance of larger motors. Units are connected to load devices through an industrial standard flexible coupling that allows for learning of shaft alignment techniques.
Each machine’s power connections use industrial standard wiring terminology (e.g. T numbers) so that learners study how to connect electric machines in the same manner as they would on the job. The 85-MT2 uses replaceable wiring diagram panels for learning evaluation.
World-Class Electrical Machine Curriculum and Optional Interactive Multimedia
The 85-MT2 features a stunning depth and breadth of electrical machine topics within Amatrol’s world-class curriculum. This curriculum marries machine theory with hands-on, real world skill building so that learners can directly apply this knowledge to the operation and installation of electrical motors. Learners will begin by studying electrical motor basics and safety, then move on to more advanced applications such as performance analysis, torque and speed measurement, and motor configurations.
Additionally, Amatrol offers this curriculum in an optional interactive multimedia format. This multimedia features all of the topics and skills from our traditional printed curriculum and adds audio, spectacular full-color graphics, and 3D animations to fully engage learners.
Hand-Held Digital Multimeter
The hand-held digital multimeter allows learners to analyze the performance of each machine in a realistic setting just as they would in the field. Built-in variable AC and DC power supplies enable learners to study the operation of AC and DC machines under a variety of conditions. Its unique switching system has an 11-position switch that allows learners to read current and voltage in all three legs of power without disconnecting leads.
Industrial Loads with Safety
The integrated test unit has provisions for mounting a prony brake to load motors so learners can observe their operation under real world conditions. The unit also mounts two coupled machines to demonstrate generator operation. Safety devices include a 3-phase circuit breaker and a keyed emergency stop pushbutton.
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.
