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.
The 90-EC1-A includes a tabletop console with pre-mounted electrical control, pneumatic, and electric power components. Each component’s electrical terminals are connected to heavy-duty banana jacks, enabling learners to quickly connect and operate a variety of automation control circuits. This learning system also features world-class curriculum covering major topic areas like control logic, ladder diagrams, sequencing control, timers, and advanced systems. The 90-EC1-A also offers optional interactive multimedia that brings these concepts alive in exciting animations, videos, and interactive exercises.
Use Real World Components for Hands-On Skills
The 90-EC1-A features numerous real-world components including DPDT relays, double-acting cylinders, limit switches, pushbuttons, accelerator switches, and solenoid operator valves. Learners use these components mounted on a tabletop, 18 gauge steel workstation to practice hands-on skills such as connecting and operating logic control circuits to energize fluid-power actuators and an electric motor. A timer relay and limit switches are used to provide sequencing control.
World-Class Speed Control Curriculum
The 90-EC1-A features curriculum with a stunning breadth and depth of topics. Major topic areas include logic elements, ladder diagrams, electro-pneumatic solenoid valves, relay operation and applications, limit switch operation and applications, time-delay relays and applications, multiple cylinder control, and machine modes of operation. This learning system also features optional multimedia that includes all of the topics in the printed curriculum, but in an interactive presentation with video, animations, and audio.
Optional Virtual Trainer
The Electric Relay Control Virtual Trainer replicates the hands-on components in such great detail that learners will feel like they are using the actual equipment. This virtual trainer allows learners to become familiar with common components and practice their newly acquired skills either as a stand-alone virtual solution when space is limited or while waiting for others to finish practicing on the real-world Amatrol trainer.
Expand Your Training with the 90-CT-1 Computer Control Option
The teaching capability of the 90-EC1-A can be greatly extended with the addition of the 90-CT1 Computer Control Option. The 90-CT1 uses an industrial programmable controller with a console that mounts directly to the top of the 90- EC1-A console. All inputs and outputs on the 90-EC1-A can be interfaced to the 90-CT1 to enable learners to program the PLC to control real-world automation components.
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.
