Amatrol’s Portable Motor Control Learning System (990-MC1) features standard industry components like a 3-phase AC squirrel cage motor and uses 3-phase AC for power and 24 VDC for control all packed within a space-saving, portable product. Learners use these industrial components to study the operation, installation, and applications for electric relay control of AC motors. The 990-MC1 also includes lockout/tagout components to teach vital safety steps when working with industrial motors. Electronic fault insertion can be added to the 990-MC1 to teach valuable troubleshooting skills that will prepare learners for real-world problem solving.

Nowhere else can you find this breadth of training in a portable platform! Motor Control is prevalent in all industries, from conveyor control to driving to driving large utility pumps. The 990-MC1 builds both knowledge and skills across topics like manual motor control, control ladder logic, motor starters, and automatic input devices. This innovative approach to bringing motor control training to wherever you need is one example of why Amatrol is the world’s leader in skills-based, interactive technical learning.

Interactive Motor Control Multimedia

Beginning at the foundation of motor control knowledge, the 990-MC1’s extensive multimedia curriculum builds off of the basics to advance to topics such as three-wire start/stop control, reversing magnetic motor starter, and on-delay and off-delay timers. As the learner completes each new topic, they’ll use this theoretical knowledge to complete hands-on skills. As an example, learners will study about the function, operation, and types of a control relays and then practice hands-on skills by actually connecting and operating a control relay in a circuit.

Optional Fault Insertion for Troubleshooting Skills Using FaultPro!

The 990-MC1 can be enhanced to include electronic faults by adding the 99-FTSMC1. This modification will allow users to troubleshoot over 30 faults on components such as the main power circuit breaker, control relays, the pressure switch, and many more! The 990-MC1F (Portable Motor Control Troubleshooting Learning System) includes everything on the 990-MC1, but has electronic fault insertion system pre-installed.

As the industry’s premier program utilizing electronic faults, FaultPro allows instructors to instantly set and tailor faults to test a learner’s weaknesses, turn them into strengths, and prepares learners to solve real-world technical problems once they’re in the field.
